I can get part numbers but here is a parts list.Hi rickwai. I'm wondering if you have the parts list together yet. I just acquired a P38+ and want to do the auto lite upgrade. Thanks
Less fuel? Hard to fathom cause less fuel would mean less heat in that stove. My 2004 P38 is the same basic stove as the P43 AFAIK , so where would the less fuel useage come from? You can only get so much heat from a BTU .I just converted the old P38 to a P43. It did not take as much time as I expected! What a difference! It is my basement stove. Holds temp perfect and seems to be using much less fuel!
Less fuel for the stove only using what it needs to maintain the temp instead of trying to do it with feed knob. I had a tstat hooked up to it but that dont work out very good. Sends it into turbo when calling for heat then back to knob setting when not calling for heat. Turbo is way to much feed with Summersets! Like a inferno and live pellets falling in ash pan.Less fuel?

I start my stove with a propane torch (40 seconds) and a $2 bottle lasts me 2 years.
OK with the auto on/off option I could see where a savings would be possible. My congrats to you on the rework job you did.
I can get part numbers but here is a parts list.
-circuit board mounting plate
-room sensing probe
-plug receptacle for room sensor
I had to cut the ell bend off circuit board mounting plate and flush mount it. Plate is set up to be recess mounted but hopper does not have that set up on the p38. Hole for circuit board had to be enlarged a bit with tin snips.
My p38 is a 2005 and had the hole in the feeder with an plastic plug in it. The new wiring harness has the igniter wires with the new plastic/rubber plug with the wires thru it already, made it a easy hook up. If you pull your rear shields off you would be able to see it directly below the auger.Thanks rickwai. I have one of the older P38+'s with the older style feeder assembly & old style board. It's getting a little erratic feeding & I think it's the pots on the board going bad. I was kinda thinking if I'm going to spend $320 on a board upgrade kit, I might as well go all in & do the auto ignite upgrade too. Wondering if there are any issues with this upgrade with old style feeder & where would I need to drill the hole in the feeder weldment for the igniter wires?
Harman Thermostat Extension (3-20-00607)I cant find part number for room sensor plug. You can plug probe direct to board if you cant find one. It is basically just a extension for the probe.
