    if there is no way, how would any of us have an idea?

    Knowing the MFG and model would be nice.

    I can't belive anyone would even make a Pellet stove you can't hook a thermostat up to.

    How do you turn it on an off right now? Wall switch or a switch on the stove itself?

    Hmm get what you pay for

    This is referred to as a "furnace". Are you an HVAC technician? Is this connected to a forced hot air distribution system or is it really just a freestanding monstrosity? For that kind of money, you could have gotten a top quality name brand unit backed with a lifetime warranty. Since the primary function of pellet stoves is as a room heater, they are listed for use with thermostats. Frankly, that's one of the main requirements for a pellet stove.

    I hate to say it but his is what happens when you buy some piece of junk stove through a mail order tool company. Go to your local hearth retailer and talk to a guy like jtp. They'll discuss all the things you couldn't discuss like tech support because there is none with a mail order operation.

    Sorry,
