I have a quadrafire cb1200. It will run fine for random amounts of time then shut down. The machine is completely clean. Pipes are clean. It works great, then when I'm at work or asleep It shuts down. The red light is on. There are pellets in the pot. Plenty of pellets in the stove. I come back and hit reset after removing the unburnt pellets and it fires up without any issue. Then after a few hours it dies again. It has been going on for a few days. Any help would be great

Check out my post. CB1200. Found areas to clean I had no idea existed. Just make sure you have a 5-7 layer filter for your shopvac! ;)
If you need pics for locations I can help out or be more descriptive.

Could be an intermittent vacuum switch causing feed to stop and fire to go out.

What heat setting is it usually on when shutting down? If on low, then could be thermocouple not staying hot enough during to small flame so increasing feed gate opening would help.

Make sure air inlet port is clean in back of igniter chamber beneath the firepot.
