We recently moved in to a home with two Mt Vernon AE stoves that were installed in 2012.

Both are working fine, but the thermostats on both seems to be on their way out. On one stove the screen on the thermostat is starting to die (about 1/3 of the screen is very dark). On the other the thermostat doesn't seem to keep time correctly (I've reset the clock a few times but within a day it's off by at least 10-15 minutes).

We don't now much about these stoves, this being our first time owning a pellet stove - are the thermostats tied to the model of the stove? I.e. if we need to replace the thermostat for either of these, is the only option an equivalent thermostat from Quadrafire?

We're going to contact the dealer that installed these, but we're just trying to gather some information first.
