if you invest in the 30 minute Intermatic timer
which is what they come with you will be better off
and have no outfires (unless the power goes off a long time).
With my KAA-4-1 I have my timer set this way:
I have 12 pins at Zero Minutes and 12 pins at Fifteen Minutes and I have no out fires.
You need to to do this to make sure the stoker runs correctly:
Turn the adjustment cap nut all the way in-it will resist a little with coal
in the hopper.
To start the fire back the threaded rod out five turns; Meaning position the thread count indicator at the nine o'clock position when you start and back it out 5 full turns-meaning rotating the indicator once for each turn and only once.
Turn the fan on:
use a propane or Mapp gas torch to start your fire with 6-8 broken match light charcoal or charcoal briquettes(4 pound hammers work very good for this)soaked in lighter fluid and wrapped in two sheets of news print. Dont use whole briquettes as they will not burn as hot for you to light the coal off.
Wait five or so minutes and check for a hot fire in the center of the grates; take 2 sheets of news print and put a big handful of coal in the center fold and wrap the coal making a tube and fold the ends under and tape them with scotch tape and then with a gloved hand put the coal pack on the fire and let the fire run some more.
After 30 minutes you can check the fire and it will be burning well and you can change the timer settings to what I use 12 pins at zero minutes, 12 pins at 15 minutes and you will have no more issues.
As long as the hold fire timer is wired correctly your house thermostat will always override the timer.
Please invest in CO detector if you do not have one in the basement already.
