    I am having the same problem as the above post, not sure how to post a query?

    I have a Quadra Mt. Vernon installed in May 2009. The thermostat never worked properly & had to be replaced. Last year after less than 2 years the igniter failed, the installer returned & said that they were having so much problems with pellet stoves they will only install wood stoves now. I bought a replacement igniter because it took 3 weeks to get a replacement. Now less than a year later I have an ash pan full of unburned pellets again! Quadra don't appear to want callers because there is no phone # on the web site. I am very disappointed with Quadra & the dealer in PE Canada.

    I have the Santa Fe Insert for 2 months and have had trouble with over firing since day one. The dealer has replaced the control panel and that helped a little but still after the fire is on for a few hours it will over fire and will not stop feeding pellets even after thermostat is turned off, the red light will remain on even after I turn the darn thing off. The only way I can make it stop feeding is to open the top of the pellet bin and leave it open until stove cools down. When stove cools down the red light will finally go out. The dealer has been out twice and is stumped, he called Quadra Fire while at my house and the tech there said they'd never heard of this happening - which I find hard to believe after reading this forum. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is with this darn stove?

    First thing to check is the red light. If you turn the T-stat up the red light comes on? what happens if you then turn it back off within a few minutes?

    I have an older Castile insert and did experience the warped floor surface that the fire pot mounts to but you mentioned that you drilled out the opening fire pot door like the Castiles have. My Castile fire pot door does not have any holes drilled into it. Anyone know if this was a mod done on newer stoves...

    On the quadra fire contour pellet stove there is a clear control box. On the box, it looks there is a variable resistor or some sort that can be turned with a flat head screw driver. What does it do? There are no stops and it spins infinitely.

    I myself suffer from the crazy flame in the fire pot as well as the rugular uncombusted fuel left over in the fire pot after the shut down cycle completes.

    Why are you playing with an electrical component you are not trained or qualified to touch? Please do humanity and stop tinkering. These things are not kids Christmas erector sets. BTW, you may have broken the box and voided the warranty. You should not be drilling any holes in any part of the appliance.
