Quick question, Does the hold fire option cause the stove to run for just a bit to restock the burn pot and ring ? Is it based on a temp setting on one of the limit switiches? One of mine has a dual dial one side for hight limit and the other has 2 pointers set about 90 and 120 .
I'm not familiar with the Hardin but maybe it's like Stokermatic/Firetender.... the 90 and 120 being temperatures when blower (not stoker/draft fan) kicks on and off. The blower would turn on when the temp. sensor hits 120 and shuts off when temp.cools to 90 and the high limit is to keep the heater from overfiring/getting too hot. I may be wrong on this but that's the way it is with the stokers I'm familiar with.
The hold fire setting on the Stokers I'm familiar with doesn't run by temperature but by a timer that turns the stoker/FD draft fan on for maybe 5 minutes per hour or so to keep the fire from going out.
Hope this helps.
