Diagnostic Test Mode

Units built from 2004 to present have a diagnostic test mode built into the circuit board.  This can be used to test the individual electrical components of the unit.


This mode can not be used to operate the stove! Attempting to burn this unit in this mode can cause damage to the unit.


The stove should be completely empty of fuel and cold when using the diagnostic mode for testing the unit.


Unplug the stove. Locate the  low burn air   and  air on temp  buttons at the bottom of the touch pad. To start diagnostic, plug in the stove and then quickly push these buttons at the same time, then release


A number code will appear in the digital readout, this is the reading for the heat sensor. The blower speed number may change some while displayed. This is normal.


At this point press the  low burn air button  located at the bottom center of the touchpad. After pushing  a dash appears in each of the two display windows.


Press the  blower speed up arrow  , and release, the exhaust blower will come on and you should see a circle in the blower speed and a dash  in the heat range.


Next, press the  blower speed down arrow  , this will turn on the room air blower and you will see in the display an 8 in the blower speed and the dash in the heat range

6. Press the  heat range up arrow  next, this will start the feed  auger motor, you will see an 8 in both displays at this time.

To turn off any of these components simply push again the same button that turned it on . To take the unit out of diagnostic mode, unplug the unit and plug it back in, this will reset the control board back into its "run mode".
