there are alot of posts here on it.. you need a manometer.. they can be had for $25. we install them permanently. Draft can be measured when the stove is running strong and cold outside. Super Mag specs are in the manual.. I believe it's .04 to .06 ..
Controlled with a barometer of quality and the flap on the combustion motor. Others will link to pic's of manometer installs.. I ran 1/4 in copper tube in a compression fitting mounted in the flue pipe to near the manometer on the wall. The last few feet was the rubber tubing supplied in the kit. Rubber near a flue pipe or hot stove isn't good. Thus the Copper tube from the stove.
Also the rubber tube is installed in the opposite port on the manometer that the instructions tell you to do because the neg readings don't go that low.. so it is the same spec's just read on the opposite side of the scale.
The manometer is supposed to be hooked up to the front of the stove as well and read .. I didn't do it as I had trouble getting a fitting to do it with so I focused on the flue pipe reading.. I would think your pellet stove was supposed to be done the same. Being a forced combustion flow as well.
On a side note I have my feed rate set for 2 1/2 and fan speed about 1/3 ... the stove will over ride this all when demand great. Be sure to lube the 3 oil ports on the shafts in the rear with light oil. The filter you must know about that's in the bottom tray.. 16x16 has to be kept clear.
One thing with Rice you may get a large piece that will get by you and plug the feed entry in the bottom of the hopper thus giving a low flame due to lack of coal being fed... any issue check that first.. I use the room temp probe that lead up stairs with a added length of 15 ft to reach my area.. You can add more wire to it and it won't change the temp at all.. the dial might lay on 70 on the stove and the living room might be 68... no big deal.. just adjust the dial to your desired room temp.
Again your pellet stove must be similar in operation... I found the Mag to take time to settle in and adjust to all given factors.. but once it does it will keep the area with in a degree ...we start ours Oct 1st every year and shut it off in April sometime.. same temp setting 24/7.. don't turn it down or up.. it will idle down so nice in warm weather then warm right up with a drop in temps...
