Thanks again Mike, That sounds way to messy!lemme save you some time, soldering to the "on/off" aint gonna happen, they are bubble switches incased in the touchpad, there is a "ribbon" looks like celophane with greenish lines in it coming out from behind the right side of the printed board that lead to a long skinny blue plug at the board. i do not know which pin is on or off and the only way to find out would be to literally destroy a touchpad. even then getting to the pins without making the connector unusable is next to impossible. in my mind, a seperate "momentary"switch like you described would be best accomplished taking power straight off the cord, or having its own cord, rig a remote command switch to it and you may have somthing. but dont try to integrate it directly to the board, its a $216.00 mistake to try.
Anyway, the results from steps 1 & 2 are in. Good news it fired up at 42 Deg F in the shed!
However it took 11 mins, not under 10 mins like a GOOD normal firing. Will it fire at 20 Deg F? Not Sure? ? ? Possible CSS - Cold Start in Shed issue if it does not fire in time for the Thermal Sensor? ? ?
I probably cannot test that until next year, but I encourge You and your company to do that testing for people who buy them for cabins and retreat properties where it is very common to go in at 0 - 20 Deg F and fire up a stove.
If your stoves do that and you advertise they do, then you have Danson and Pelpro Ind in Canada beat by a mile!
Still getting a new ignitor but all set for the rest of this year, See yellow arrow in pics below.
I pulled the blue tube off the ignitor tube and plugged it with a screw. Then I pulled the ignitor out MORE so it protrudes beyound the back of the igniter tube as shown in the pic below!
BTW I just painted the door, Makes it look like new. Stove Bright Satin Black matches perfectly! Is that what you use?
