I have a Quadra-Fire 1200i. Up until this year it has worked flawlessly. When I started it this year the convection blower would not turn on. I pulled the wires and jumpered it, when it was jumpered the fan kicked on immediately. I replaced the snapdisk and it still will not kick on without jumpering it. Any thoughts?

What temp snap disk do you have and where is it located?
Below is the information on the snapdisk I bought. They are located towards the top front of the left side.

"Quadrafire 1200 Limit Snap Disc Switch #1 - 812-0320. Quadrafire Reset Snap Disc #1>>> This is a limit switch for Quadrafire Stoves. You'll find your stove working as good as new with this switch. It's very easy to install. Just make sure you unplug your stove before you work on it.>>> This is a NEW part. Fits Models 1200. Rated at 250 Degrees Fahrenheit."

I would test the new snap disc to make sure it works. If it does and it still won't transfer power, I would check the ends of your wires and make sure they are getting a good connection. kap

That temp sounds high, I'd check the pn again. In the current version manual 1200I-C, their pn listed is srv7000-829.

Don't want to hijack your thread, but I'm having the same issue! New snap disc, still never kicks on. If I jump it, starts up immediately.

One trick I tried is that I hooked it up to the snap disc and then took a lighter to the sensor side (carefully made sure I wasn't lighting up the wiring!) and then the fan started up! I suppose my pellet stove is just not getting hot enough to engage the convection fan?

Anyone know what is normal? Should a convection fan start up pretty quickly? Or does it only start up after an hour and the stove is really hot?

I was going to try this tonight.

Mine is doing the same thing, just tested the snap disc with a lighter and it worked flawlessly. I'm assuming I must have some Ash built up somewhere that I'm not seeing.

I will let you know if I find an answer.
