this has got me thinking. what else has somebody changed in the stove that you dont know is right or not. with a low pellet feed did the auger get changed and a 1rpm get installed instead of a 4rpm? is the mainboard the correct one? have the limit switches be changed?.. heres some homework for ya bud, pull the auger out and put 110v to the leads and see if it's 4rpm. ck the numbers on your limit switches high limit should be a F250 Thermodisc- 60T11. low limit should be F110 Thermodisc- 60T12.

Previous owner could have changed setting try resetting to factory defaults.

Factory Defaults: To return the control to is original factory default settings, Press and
hold the “B” and “C” until P1 Appears, use the heat range arrow to increase to P9 and Press
the ON Button. The unit will Turn Off and the board will be reset.

I'll try the factory reset when I get home. Thanks... I'm crossing my fingers that will help.

The factory reset may have done the trick.I still have the auger turned up to 9 and the blower set at 1, and it is barely hanging on. It's been running for about 30-45 mins and the flame hasn't gone out. I have it running it on setting 5. I'm guessing the flames are typically small in these things? Even on setting 9 the flame was small. I'll keep checking on it (it's in the garage being vented out the door). I'm guessing it will heat better once I get it hooked up inside? The heat seems mediocre in the garage.

So, after a factory reset, the stove seemed to run steady on heat setting 5 (as mentioned above, I adjusted the auger to 9 and blower to 1). When I turned it up to 8, it was not able to feed the pellets fast enough, and the flame went out after about 15 mins. Setting 5 may be hot enough once I get it inside, but I'd still like for it to work in its entirety. Any final thoughts or suggestions? Would US Stove be any help?

Yes US Stove customer service is very helpful, they will want to know model and serial number of stove.

The A button should be set to 4 and the B should be 3 the stove is made to run on those settings at 9 and 1 the burn pot should be overfilling not empty like you describe.

The US Stove rep said that I need to make sure there is at least 3 ft of vertical exhaust pipe. If and when I get this thing running right, I will install it with 3 ft of vertical pipe, but I currently am just running a pipe horizontally out the door of my garage while I test the stove. Would vertical piping change the behavior of the burn even when it's a forced exhaust system? Also, she said that maybe the newer 4 button control board might help. Any idea how I get my hands on one of those? Thanks!

Every foot or elbow of venting would effect/reduce the draft. Not sure if 1 elbow and 3 feet of vertical will reduce enough. I was hoping that they would offer you a slide draft for below your burn pot. The 2nd generation 6039 has a manual slide damper below the burnpot as does the newer 6041.

I'm new here and need help with my 6039. Not sure if I'm doing this right. After several weeks of no problems I awoke this morning to no fire burning and no error codes just the green "on" light on control board. The exhaust blower and room blower were both running. The burn pot was full of unburned pellets and agitator was continuously running while auger was barely moving. I cleaned entire stove including hopper and removed auger which was jammed full of sawdust. Now when I'm ready to start up again the red light over the letter c is lit up. There is no mention of the letter c in any troubleshooting guide in manual. This is a 2006 stove and i'm the 2nd owner. Auger motor is fine. Any hlp is greatly appreciated!

Which control board do you have? ABC or the four button board?

I have the ABC control Board. I went ahead and fired it up Friday night and the light went out and it burned good all night. The main problem I'm having is even on low setting of 2 and 4 this thing has a huge fire that's keeping the main room it's in at around 80 degrees and the glass gets so black you can hardly see the flame after about 8 hours. Also it's burning a lot of pellets. I have the fresh air kit installed and have been running the damper about 3/4 inch open. Any suggestions you can give me on how to tweak this would be much appreciated. I love this stove compared to the Englander I used to have.

Excuse me for butting in. New on the forum and new to the 6039. Mine is a used 6039T. I have no manual draft under the burn pot, only a 4" X 6" opening down into the ash pan. I am having a drafting problem according to the light on the new style board. What does this 'manual draft' look like? thanks much. Chieffan
You have an early model .6039 without a draft damper.

US Stove was providing a kit to add damper and two ash cleanouts. Someone here once said it was not necessary the stove will run well without a manual damper.

C is showing the auger is in delay mode.
Is you stove plugged into a surge protector?
Have you tried unplugging the stove from the outlet for 10-15 minutes?
Have you looked at the troubleshooting thread at the top of the stickies on the forum homepage? If not here's the link: https://www.hearth.com/talk/threads/ussc-troubleshooting.158667/
You will find you manual and troubleshooting help there.
You may have to reset the board to the factory defaults.
Ask more after checking those hints in the manual. It could be the low limit switch isn't working showing you reaching temp for the fan to come on.

Which control board? ABC or four button?

How long have you owned it? Did it work before? Is it plugged into a surge protector? Have you check all of your seals, door, hopper for leaks?
