I bought my Quadrafire Mount Vernon insert back in Nov of 2006. Last week I started getting continuous Vacuum Sw Errors. Usually a hard boot of the system fixes this. It got progressively worse. Now I'm getting misfires and it looks like my igniter is out. I called the local dealer for Quadrafire where I bought the stove. They have me booked for December 9th. So that will be roughly 3 weeks ill be without heat before the tech even gets onsite. Then from everything I'm reading it sounds like it will be summer before parts come in. Not only that my two year warranty should be up by the time the tech gets here. Thanks QF. I've been very upset with the quality of this stove. I purchased 2 and have had nothing but problems with them. This is compounded by poor service from the dealer. Enough about my woes. What can do I in the interim?
Is there a way to jumper around the Vaccum Sw error? I read somewhere that there is a way I can jumper this to see if it's the problem with the unit or if it's a software error in the mainboard. Ill dig up the mainboard info and post it when I get home.
About the igniter, what can I do there? Manually light the unit? I dont run the stove when I'm not home so from a safety standpoint this shouldnt be an issue. Also, is there a way I can check the igniter to see if its ok or dirty?
Also, is there anything else on this unit I can check, clean or do to?Any help to get my xxxx paper weight going so we have heat this thanksgiving would be great. Thanks everyone!
