PostBy: munson On: Fri Nov 23, 2012 12:25 pm

hi, i'm new to the forum and i'm needing a little help..i was given an older harman st8 for free,i just had to clean it up a little..i'm ready to fire it up and i have no manual with this stoker,,my controller has three sets of rocker type switches inside marked....p,d, and off..any help with identifying and starting point settings would be greatly appreciated..thanks

...there are no pots to turn for settings and there is only a main power on/off switch on the control box...

thanks for all the replies,,fisher stoves doesn't have any info on settings as the stove is approx 25-27 yrs. old,,did learn that the stove model is magnafire,not magnum,,harman is on vacation for the weekend,so no info from them yet,the st8 link was very helpful,learned alot about cleaning issues...i have a feeling harman is gonna want to push a newer version controller at a cost of over $400...my controller is fine i just have no idea about identifying switch posistions or starting settings to use,,i guess i could sit all the motors on a workbench and make adjustments one at a time and record changes,,,uuggghhhh....any other ideas????thanks to all who replied....munson
