Argggg........

Harman Magnum Stoker has really got me on the ropes now...

installed a digital therm today thinking it would be better for all!

well...come to find out...now the thing has a mind of its own. the stove is running on a 16 minute cycle...8 minutes OFF...8 minutes ON...regardless of what the thermostat says. so, to try to out fox the fox, i shut the stat OFF...the stove has kept its 8 minute ON...8 minute OFF cycle.

any clue here folks?

The 8 on/8 off is probably the idle/pilot mode to keep it burning when the thermostat is not requiring heat. Check your control box settings.

Unless you turn the thermostat up over the actual ambient temperature reading of it, it won't kick the stove on.
