Hello I have a friend with a 7 year old Englander 25-PDVC with no ignitor. He normally sets the 3 buttons at the bottom to 6 - 9 - 1 during the winter to keep the house warm and toasty. Now during the sholder season, he changes the 6 down to 1. This makes the flame really low but it still runs fine and he can keep the house at 70 Deg F and 1 bag of pellets will last 1.5 days!! This works great and saves alot on wood pellets! Has anyone else tried this? P.S. By professionally cleaning the blowers and the stove, he has put Zero money into it for 7 years!! That goes to show how long these stoves last if taken care of properly!! See control panel diagram pic below! Click to enlarge!
