    I am so new to this pellet stove stuff I feel stupid even asking these questions but I'm going to anyway. Hopefully someone will explain how this thing works.
    I just bought a Serenity Pellet stove with a controller. I vented it outside with a 5 ft high exhaust pipe. I didn't vent the intake pipe, closed the damper all the way. I read the manual and don't understand what the exhaust voltage or blower voltage is? I want the stove to turn on at 3pm and run until 6am during the week and then all day and night on the weekends. I want to heat my 16x20 room and keep it as close to 70 degrees as possible. I think I have the weekly settings done correctly. Can I just override those settings on the weekends? What do the exhaust voltage and blower settings need to be on to accomplish this? Will the stove totally shut down at 6am and then start back up at 3pm or will it do a low burn all day? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Can not help with set up but you will need the vent pipe open
    that pipe supplies AIR for the fire ( also known as a OAK
    outside air kit) take a look at your manual for proper adjustment

    You don’t necessarily need to vent your fresh air kit. As long as it breathes well and an oak isn’t required by code in your area your fine. The castles are supposed to cycle completely on and off when you are running it on the scheduled mode. If you want to bypass the scheduled times, then switch it to manual or thermostat and run it on your desired heat level or temp from there. The blower voltage is so you can change the speed of the room blower while running the stove on different heat settings. It comes preprogrammed but you can change it to always blow on high or low or whatever you want it to do. If you didn’t get a copy of the manual for that puppy I would highly recommend it as the controls are a bit funky to get used to.

    By closed the damper she wasn’t talking about the vent pipe. Castles have an intake damper that you set at the time of install according to the pressure of the house. If she’s running good with it “shut” ( it’s never 100% shut) then fresh air is not a problem in her application, though again, local codes may require an oak.
