Is it less expensive to burn corn or wood pellets?
If you are going to purchase both kinds of fuel, and depending upon where you live, both types of fuel can be very close in price. For the farmer who harvests corn and has a plentiful supply, the corn stove becomes very economical.
Do your stoves require electricity?
Yes. Country Flame appliances need electricity in order to work. If you want to run your corn stove during power outages, you will need to purchase a battery backup and inverter. These can be purchased at local retailers such as Best Buy and Circuit City.
Do your Flex-fuel stoves have an ash pan?
Yes. The Country Flame line of Corn, Wood Pellet, Flex-fuel Stoves have convenient lift-out ash pans.
Can the Country Flame Flex-fuel stoves be connected to a thermostat?
Yes. Simply set the thermostat to the desired temperature and the Country Flame Stove will do the rest. And with the Country Flame IntelliChoice control board, the corn stove is equipped to operate either semi-automatically or manually with 5 heat settings. The choice is up to you.
Are the Country Flame Flex-fuel stoves approved for mobile home use?
Yes. For mobile home use, you must use the outside air connection found on the back of the stoves.
What is the voltage requirement for Country Flame Corn/ Wood Pellet / Flex-fuel stoves?
All models require standard household current 120 volt 60 hertz. Grounded outlet and correct polarity. A surge protector is required.
What would cause my stove to make my house smell like smoke?
Unlike wood stoves that work by natural draft, Country Flame Flex-fuel Stoves work by a forced air, vacuum system. In order for your stove to work properly, the venting system must be completely sealed so it will vent the smoke outside. If you are experiencing smoke smell, your venting may not have been completely sealed when installed. If this is not the case, the chimney could be blocked, or the door may not have been adjusted correctly during installation and sealed properly, or the door seal gasket may need to be replaced. You will need to contact your local dealer or installer to correct this problem.
When I press the ON/OFF button to start my stove, the light turns green but in a few seconds the control board goes into the “highway patrol” mode. What is the problem?
This usually means that the control board senses no vacuum present. The vacuum line may be plugged with ash between the vacuum switch and the exhaust blower. First, try cleaning the stove. Before cleaning, DISCONNECT POWER CORD. Clean the nipple on the exhaust blower (remove orange rubber hose) with an uncoiled paper clip (should go into the nipple approximately one inch). Next, try cleaning the exhaust blower and check your venting to see if something may have plugged the venting. Next, check the wiring between the control board and vacuum switch. If this does not work, then the vacuum switch, exhaust blower, or control board may be bad. Please contact your local Country Flame dealer or installer to help.
Why does my stove sometimes go out when it’s on the lowest setting?
You could be giving your stove too much air. Slide in the adjustable air control underneath the hearth extension at 1/4″ intervals to slow down the air flow until you reach the desired results. Or it could be that your firepot needs to be cleaned, or there is blockage in the feed system (auger). If these are not the cause, the setscrew on the auger shaft connecting the auger to the auger motor could be loose. Your local Country Flame Dealer can help you.
My stove is turned off but the exhaust blower came on and ran for a while. What’s up?
If there is a brief interruption in your electricity, the exhaust blower will come on for ten minutes and then shut off. This is a safety feature built into the stove. The exhaust fan removes any un-burnt gas from the firebox. If you don’t use your pellet stove for long periods, unplug it so the exhaust fan will not come on.
My stove doesn’t seem to burn as well as it did at first. The fire is very lazy even with the air adjustment control all the way open. What is the problem?
Your firepot or burn pot is probably plugged. Also, there could be a buildup in the chimney pipe or venting. Refer to the owner’s manual for proper cleaning and maintenance of your stove.
If I let my stove run out of corn, do I have to prime the auger again?
Yes. To prime the auger shaft, hold in the on/off button for 15 seconds or until the auger light starts flashing green. When corn begins to drop into the firepot, press the on/off button again for five seconds to turn off the prime mode. Now re-start the stove by holding the on/off button for five seconds until the on/off light turns green.
Why doesn’t my control board light up when I plug my stove into an electrical outlet?
The power receptacle may not have proper voltage. The fuse in the pellet stove may have blown or the control board may be bad. Call your local Country Flame Dealer for service.
