Does it power up? Check the menu to make sure it isn't in IGN (ignitor) MODE, should be set to 'N' no, I believe. The blowers and everythign will be off if it is in this mode and seem like nothing is working.

I have heard of a few people having problems with the Coaltrol, but I have also heard of excellent customer care and fast service. Give the Coaltrol people a call at (315) 299-3589 or email them at coaltrol@automationcorrect.com. They will fix you up faster than french fries at a drive through.

There is not a signal to the thermostat or toggle switch. I can fire up stove, (with connections bypassing col-trol) but there is no way to regulate coal consumption. also it is not the rj45 cord to thermostat.

hmmm. Just give the guys at CoalTrol a call, they can help you out.

I was just going to suggest the cord/plug to the thermostat. But, sounds like it is not that. YOu didn't extend the cable or anything, since you need a standard straight thru cable not a cross over.

Thanks everyone,
All I did was restart the unit since it was a bit warm. The power vent was the only unit that turned back on. Fuse is good. I used another rj-45 cord hoping the thermostat would activate. Sent an e-mail to Col-trol.

Again thanks to everyone,
Spoke to Neil at Col-trol today. Apparently proper procedure at shutdown is to let power vent run after unit is off. Since I did not let power vent pull heat out of stove it tripped the safety. Or it sensed a positive draft (if it were running). The control module did its job. Very good to know.
Thanks again

Up and running WNY. Control module safety on Col-Trol has proven to be as effective as advertised. Now thats a wonderful thing.
