Hi everyone,
I bought a 25-cab80 off Craigslist from a guy who said he got it in a trade. It works but I'm having two issues with it. I'm new to pellet stoves and am not a handy female (though learning).

1. Auto start not working properly. It will light eventually, but not within the 20 minute window, so by the time it's going the stove will already be in shut down mode. I've worked around this by using starter gel and lighting manually. Works fine but would be nice to be able to use auto start.

2. I messed with the bottom 3 buttons before realizing they shouldn't have been touched. When I push any of the three bottom buttons now, it displays '1' and won't budge from there when I push up/down arrows. Same for all three bottom buttons. Any idea how to do a factory reset on a cab 80?

Thank you for any help!
