PostBy: cd79ny On: Sat Feb 23, 2013 8:55 pm

i jut picked up a keystoker koker furnace.it has a honeywell tstat system on it now.was wondering if i were to convert it to a coal trol would i be able to get rid of the timer box and and other stuff like that,looking to simplify the set up and dont want to have to mess around w guessing how many brass pins to have to use,just want to be able to set it up once and be done.would the coal trol do that for me? if so what one of there systems do i need,if it matters i will be using a power vent.thanks in advance

I have never had a problem with the Koker set up.

my koker came from the factory with a coal trol and power vent. I have no timer box and "all that stuff on it. The coal trol takes care of this for me. It's fantastic! The guys from Automation Correct can help you determine which one you need. Send them a pm

cd79ny, with the Coal-trol you will be removing (or bypassing, if you don't want to remove it) the timer box. You have the option of keeping your bonnet limit switch (controls the convection blower) or using the Coal-trol for that motor, as well. As for which system you need, you should use the Coal-trol Standard (2 programmable setpoints, for day and night) or Standard+ (4 setpoints for weekdays and 4 for weekends, morning, day, evening, night). There are some options available if you order from us, such as auxillary fan output (used to control a central air/furnace blower) and an interlock input (can be used for a power vent setup, but there is another alternative for power vent without this option).

I encourage you to give our shop a call to discuss your needs with Neil or Ed (315-299-3589). You can email us at coaltrol@automationcorrect.com, too. And if you have a preferred stove dealer in your area, check with them to see if they sell Coal-trol products.
