My Englander 10-CPM sometimes has left over pellets that smolder and smoke which is very annoying. I dont quite understand which settings to change to resolve this issue. It is set at 1-4-1 which as far as I know is the factory setting.

I think what is ultimately happening is it fighting with our other pellet stove and being cycled off early because our other pellet stove also affects the heat in the area the thermostat is for the 10-CPM.

Any help would be appreciated.
