    Does anyone know the factory settings for the 3 screw type adjustments that are hidden by metal plugs on the main control panel? Mine have been changed and I want to get them back to the original setting. The settings are for auger, blower, and fan. >Thanks.


    These are the set-up specs that we have developed over the years for our service people and have found them to be quite successful. They do vary from the published specs in the Whitfield Dealer service manual.

    1. Burn stove hot for 15-20 minutes.

    2. Set to #1 and let fire stabilize for 5-10 minutes.

    3. Set voltage on combustion blower to 70-74 volts. (Factory says 61-68)

    4. Set sliding air damper with magnahelic to .08-.09 inches W.C.

    5. Set auger cycle on timing to: 1.75-1.9 (oldstyle) or 1.35-1.6 (newstyle)

    6. If you have an Ultragrate, check firebox for leaks. Lower chamber should be .02 min. differential from upper chamber.

    Note: The convection voltage setting has no effect on the burning of the stove. You can set it at whatever settings you choose. I recommend that it be enabled to run full voltage (107-122 VAC) on high. Set the low end at whatever noise level you find acceptable (55-70 VAC). Don't turn it all the way off on low.

    Good Luck. If this doesn't do it, I'd strongly recommend calling out a Qualified and knowledgeable service tech.
