My 25-PDVC (mfg. date May 2008) manual says to hook the 2 leads for the thermostat to those screws where you removed the jumper wire. It also says to set the stove to 9 9, and I thought the website noted that the thermostat will not automatically turn the 25-PDV(C) on or off. (not sue what the 'C' means).BangorPellet said:This may have been discussed earlier but I have apparently missed it. I recently had my 25-PDV installed and very much do enjoy it. The only problem is that it gets much to warm in my home on a 1-1 setting. I purchased a Honeywell RTH6300B programmable thermostat and am now wondering how exacly to hook this up to my stove. I removed the back and unscrewed the control panel. I removed the jumper from the thermostat connection block. I'm not sure where to go from there as the Pellet stove and thermostat manuals don't address this in any length. Do I use plain 18 gauge twisted wire to connect to the thermostat. I'm wondering how far I can go. Initial setting on the thermostat/pellet stove?
Any help is greatly appreciated!

as for the button settings , they should be the same with the stat as they are without, if the stove is starving out when the stove is on low or the stat has it turned down , the LFF may be set too low, advance the LFF up a number and see if it continues to run on low, repeat if necessary
ok, i see that , i'll get it straightened out , thanks for the heads upminch said:Mike,
You may also want to update http://www.englanderstoves.com/help/PelletStove/thermostat.html which states "The thermostat does NOT turn the stove off and on". The table in the PDF indicates that in some models the thermostat *does* turn the stove on and off.
(Just trying to make sure your customers don't get confused. Perhaps the extra thermostat web page needs to be removed so you only have to maintain one page.)
