After the stoker motor shuts down, and the fire settles, do you see a dark spot in the middle of the bed? I responded to your post in another area of this forum.

I know that is not a standby or idle or thermostat satisfied fire. Is that a normal amount of fire, when the thermostat 'calls' for heat? What feed rate do you think it is at? About how many Btu's do you think is being produced?

Looks like a stoking fire in a warm air furnace to me.

(i have a forced air stoker.)

Yeah, I know. I can see the baffle plate is warped. :)

A thermostat and timer relay would make your life easier and your wallet lighter.
