Photo of settings would be nice.

#1 did it ever work for you or is this your first time using it?
#2 is it a new stove or one left in a house you just bought or did you pick it up used someplace?
After a quick review these elements below are what first come to my mind
"Options: Thermostat System, Fan Limit Control, Barometric Damper (must be installed on power vent and chimney models)"
I also think because of the nature of these types of stoves cleaning, vacuuming and blowing out things like the blowers and grate from time to time with a compressor is critically important, the fly ash produced can invade places that might baffle your brain at times and with all the electronics, blowers, motors, rheostats, etc. its very important to clean it often.
The stove was here, when i bought the place, 3 yrs ago D/07. Other than playing with settings the first few weeks or so, to get it where i was comfortable, it has worked perfectly. This just started 2 days ago. I only run it when i'm here, and only when i'm awake, so it doesn't get that much use. It's a back up to my LPG, more or less. No chimney, and flue pipe goes straight up through roof. I clean it every spring.
I've eliminated thermo, so i will see if i can check other items
Sorry about the clarity of pics, stove is in corner of room, and is hard to get my "old fart" body wedged in there.....lol
