    Not sure about the pipe It was installed when we weren’t home there used to be a woodstove there and the little pie was where the woodstove pipe started I think they just used the smaller pipe to get up to that area but again I wasn’t here when they installed it. I do not think the installer used a gauge

    I think getting the burn pot situated like it should be and you’ll be good.
    Until that error is corrected it will never work properly.

    The igniter and air tube should only be coming through the burnpot holes about 1/8th of an inch or a touch more. I also think that is your problem. Didn't the dealer give you a lesson after it was installed. I found doing that saves at least two trips back.

    No. Just said here is the manual.

    Showed how to clean it out and empty bottom tray. And said about once a month take an air compressor and. Take the stove pipe caps off and blow it up the chimney?

    We have moved the burn pot back so that the little Divet are over the holes. Started the stove up again and put it on level two this time. We shall see what happens. How we close the damper to about half and set it on L2 wouldn’t that be nice if this is the only issue will let everyone know. Thanks everyone for your feedback

    I would run it on high and leave the damper open to start. Has the stove even gotten hot enough to cure the paint? In other words did it stink like chemicals?

    Not that I know of. But in all honesty we really haven’t run it that much just because we’ve had so many issues and it hasn’t been really cold so we’ve only really had it on level one or two

    You would know it, lol. Open your windows and fire it up on high and burn it off.

    So we moved the burn pot back so that the diverts were in the wholes. Ran it on level 2 for most of the day. I think he put it a bit higher for a while then back to level 2 again for the night

    It had been running for about 18-20 hours. The burn pot is just now full of pellets

    I know it Has to be cleaned daily. So is this the normal working. But the burnt part would be full after about 18 to 20 hours, on level two?

    Well,your stove is the "upgraded" mini,which had low burn problems.Your manual says should burn 2 to 3 days before cleaning pot,I still think low draft.Did you go into programming and turn up "feed rate trim"? If not,try it.

    Page 21 in the manual under "operating instructions",but is also something your dealer should have trained you.I can tell you Enviro would not be happy with this dealer.

    Bob is right. The trims may need adjusting. It could also be a chimney problem but I'm thinking not. I also don't think it's a control board problem to run that long. If you would like to call me I can walk you through the trims. For all we know the feed is on high and the air could be on low.

    I will look at page 21 in the manual first. I know the dealer was supposed to be contacting in Enviro

    That was Friday. I will have to follow up with him on Monday

    Wow. There is a hidden button. Just reading the manual. I did actually read over the manual a bit

    In saying that the dealer/installer was reading the manual when he installed

    Never saw this part. Bad me

    A. Feed trim
    C combustion trim

    When I get home I will press and let you all know

    Does anyone know anything about the pellets they are burning. I live in the NE US and know nothing about them.

    I would see if you can change A to 2 and C to 4 or 5.Write everything down,the factory people like notes.

    Bob is right. Set the auger at 2 and the combustion to 5. The Dealer is going to have to check the WCI pressure and if that's good he'll have to check the auger cycles. I would also two 45s on the chimney if the pressure is low. If it were me I'd "borrow" a control board off another stove and rule that out. The pot should not be overflowing in one day.
