    When the thermostat calls for heat the big red call light comes on.(beside the 2 switches)
    Once the stove is running first the green light comes on then a few minutes later the red light comes on.(on the control board)

    If everything else is running fine it sounds like the control board relay is stuck and the control board will need to be replaced, this just a suggestion based on info i have and i in no way guarantee that it will fix the problem.

    I opened up the control box
    (no warranty anyway) and can see that one of the relays has been bubbled out a bit.
    Can just the relay be replaced, or do I have to replace the whole box?

    Did anyone find the solution to this? I have the same issue with my Quadrafire 1000. The exhaust fan kicked on while the unit was in the process of cooling down/shut down and stays on.

    is this the general SOA on these units ?

    Someone wrote:

    Room Temperature stat makes and feeds pellets - powers the auger feed motor.

    The ignitor gets powered and lights the pellets.

    The venter motor gets powered to provide draft / exhaust.

    When the firebox gets warm another stat powers the indoor air circulation blower.

    When the room stat contact open - the auger stops, the pellets burn themselves out, the firebox cools, and the indoor air circulation blower shuts off when it's stat cools.

    --------------------------------

    Is that about the typical sequence-of-operation for pellet stoves?

    And if so; does the auger feed Continually so long as the room/space temperature stat contacts are closed?

    If not; what else controls power to the auger feed motor?

    Does the ignitor remain powered during the entire combustion period?

    If not; what 'tells' the ignitor to turn off after the pellets are lit?

    Hsi is off after start. Hsi usually on a timer and if startup not detected by convection blower stat it goes into shutdown mode.
    Auger stays on during call for heat.
