Yes, this mean that the unit says I'm going to idle at whatever feed setting was set and run until Tstat calls for heat, stoker will run at the min setting (a min of 5 equals 5 seconds on for every 100 seconds if FR is 0).
Mike E wrote: that the convection blower isn't blowing, so it must realize that the thermo is not calling for heat.. so that's good. Also, I see that the stoker motor is intermittent.. just pushing fuel every now and then, and not constantly. So, that's also good.
The design of the Coal-Trol calls for combustion fan running 24/7, convection fan runs when heat is needed. Keystoker normal mode is to shut off the combustion fan when the stoker is not running.
But I was under the impression (and where did I get this from, I'm not sure) that the combustion fan would turn off when not generating heat, and that the only motor that *always* runs would be the exhaust fan, no? Should the combustion fan always be going?
I think (as WNY said earlier) your mechanical feed rate is too high, back out the screw some and see if the temp comes down, will take a while to have an effect, keep backing it out till you see a change in the right direction. Then you can mess with the min max settings per the Coal-Trol manual once the stove is allowing the room to cool down to set point.
So, now I'm just perplexed as to why my thermo is set at 70 and the room is 80 degrees. The min/max settings? So much coal going off in there that the small room is just overwhelmed with heat? I suppose it's possible.
Based on the test mode running the correct motors and from what you have descibed I think everything is correctly plugged in. Not sure if all this came across clearly but a call to the folks at Automation Correct will solve the problem if you can't figure it out on your own (yeah I know is much better to try first, kinda like assembly without reading the directions
Keep us posted on how it works out.
