England's stove works pellet units can be operated using two
types of thermostats. The function of the thermostat is to control heat in
the structure the unit is located in. When running on a thermostat, the
stove will run at the heat range setting selected on the control board until
the temperature the thermostat is set for is reached. At this point the
stove will revert to its "low burn function" which is essentially the same
as heat range 1. The unit will run in this manner until the thermostat calls
for heat again, at which time the stove will revert back to running at
the setting pre-selected on the control board. The
thermostat does NOT turn the stove off and on on all models; see Owner's Manual.
REMOTE: There is a Remote
Thermostat available (Part #
AC-3001) for your pellet unit. It comes with everything necessary for quick
installation, and has many features to allow remote control of your
The remote thermostat can be used on models that were manufactured through
2003 (there are exceptions, click the AC-3001 for info.). The wall mounted thermostat can be used on all units.
Also, an external wall thermostat
(such as our Part #
PU-DTSTAT) can be used on
our pellet units as long as it is a 24-volt that works with millivolt
systems. The unit will operate differently once the wall thermostat is
connected - we recommend the Control Board be set at "9" on Heat Range and
Blower Speed while using the thermostat. Refer to your Owner's Manual. Also refer to the section on "Start-up
Procedure" for information on cold starts.
After unplugging the unit,
locate the jumper wire (J-3) on the bottom of the control panel. The two
screws should then be loosened and the jumper wire removed from the board.
Next, the two thermostat lead wires should be slipped into these openings
and the screws tightened; the jumper wire should be saved for future
operation without a thermostat.
