Just started my Leisure Line Pioneer with Coal Trol for the first time since installing it and I think I am missing something but I am not sure what. I had hot coals to the end of my burner and they are falling off the end. I kept moving the Max back, 5 points at a time, which may have been too much. I was all the way down to 20 and still had coals to the very end. The room was up to temp, 70 degrees, and was still showing 99 feed rate for an hour or more, I back the temp down to 68 degrees, which seems to be more than enough for my house, and the feed rate is finally starting to fall that I have some ash on the end of the pan, feed rate is down to 69 and I have a 1.5" of ash, maybe a little more, but the room is still at 70 with the t-stat set to 68 and it has been like that for a few hours.
I know it takes coal longer to respond but why was I having hot coal to the end of the fan and running at a feed rate of 99 when the temp in the room met the t-state setting, this was like this for a few hours, up until I back the stat down to 68. What am I missing?
Very happy with coal heat, it is 32 degrees outside, my heat pump has been turned off for about 9-10 hours and it is still plenty warm in my house, actually maybe a little too warm, living room is showing 75 degrees, of course it is higher than the room the stove is in and that is where all the heat is going, just as I had planned.
