1.
Can I vent a corn stove into my existing chimney?

Unlike wood stoves, which operate exclusively on a principle of chimney draft, a pellet stove must use specially sealed exhaust pipe to prevent exhaust gases from escaping into the living space. This is due to the air pressure produced by a combustion blower. Pellet stoves require certified double walled venting, type P or PL, normally three or four inches in diameter with a stainless steel interior and galvanized exterior. Because pellet stoves have a forced exhaust system, they have the advantage of not always requiring a vertical rise to vent. A three to five foot vertical run to induce some draft is recommended to prevent leakage in the case of a power outage. Pellet stoves can be vented horizontally through an outside wall and terminated below the roof line, making it an excellent choice for structures without an existing chimney. If an existing chimney is available, we urge use of a correctly sized and type of stainless steel liner the length of the chimney for proper drafting. A flue that is too large will cause a drop in pressure, and therefore a decrease of flow. An oversized flue allows the smoke to slow down and condense inside the chimney, resulting in sluggish draft and improper operation of a pellet stove.

2. My C light comes on when I start the stove. What does this mean?

It is normal for the light above the C button to come on during start-up. This is indicating that the auger has stopped giving you time to start the fire. Pressing the C button during operation will pause the auger for one minute.

3. Do I need the Fresh Air Kit?

This will depend on how air tight the room may be. If the room is very air tight, it can form a negative pressure in the room and interfere with the proper functioning of the stove. If the unit is installed in a manufactured home, the fresh air kit is required.

4. When I plug my stove in, there are numbers that flash on the board then quickly go out. What do these numbers mean?

These numbers inform us of what program version is in your stove. If assistance is needed with the stove, these numbers will help a technician diagnose a possible problem with the stove.

5. What type of vent piping should I use for my installation?

You should use the recommended vent piping manufactured for burning wood pellets or corn. Type PL is manufactured for wood pellets. There is also piping manufactured for burning corn. Your local dealer should be able to supply the vent piping. If not, we recommend contacting the manufacturer of the vent pipe: L Simpson, Dura-vent, or MetalFab.

6. What is the recommended installation for the vent piping?

We recommend a through the wall installation with a clean-out tee and a three or four foot vertical rise. This is the easiest and the least expensive installation. The three or four foot rise on the vent pipe will create a natural draft on the flue pipe if there were to be a power outage.

7. What do the A and B buttons represent on the control board?

The "A" button is for the auger feed adjustment. The "B" button is for the combustion/exhaust blower adjustment.
Top




8. Why is the B light flashing on the circuit board?

The unit is too hot and is going into shut down mode. Please try lowering the heat setting and the light should go off. If it continues, contact a USSC technician for assistance.
Top




9. Why is my A light flashing on the control board?

The stove has some type vacuum issue. Please make sure the door is sealed tightly and the clean outs are in place.

10. At higher temperature settings, my stove has an unpleasant and loud whistling sound, much like a boiling teakettle. Is this normal? Is there anything that can be done to correct this?

We can send you a gasket that will eliminate the whistling noise. Please call the customer service line at 1-800-750-2723, M-F 7am to 4 Pm CST. We will need your mailing information.

11. My draft fan light keeps flashing and my stove won't feed any corn.

The draft flashing light indicates some type of vacuum problem. This will keep your auger from turning. Please check to make sure you have the ash dump slides pushed all the way in. You may also want to check the flue for any type of blockage. If the light continues, please contact us at 800-750-2723.

12. What does the Aux. button do on my stove?

It controls the speed of your agitator, not the auger. The lower the number, the slower your agitator will turn. Keep in mind, if your Aux. is on "0" your agitator will not turn.

13. How do I clean the cleanout behind the burnpot?

You will need to loosen the screw holding them in place and slide the cleanout up. The hole for these cleanouts is fairly small and can be difficult to clean out. You can use a small shop vac extension to clean these out. You can also use a small tool to help remove the ash; some people have found that using an old spoon can make this chore a little easier. The cleanouts should be cleaned weekly.

14. When I received my new pressure switch it has two ports instead of just one. Which one of these does the hose go to and what do I do with the other port?

You should connect the silicone hose to the gray colored side. The other port should remain open.

15. Can I connect a remote thermostat to my stove? If so, how do I connect it and what kind should I use?

The 6039 is capable of having a remote thermostat connected to the unit. If you decide to connect a remote thermostat, make sure that it is a milivolt thermostat. You will need to have two 18 gauge pieces of wire that are long enough to connect from your unit to the thermostat. To connect the thermostat to the stove, you will first need to remove the side panel with the control board on it. Once you have this removed, you will look on the control board for two spade connectors with the word "TSTAT" written in front of them. Then, you will remove the plastic jumper in between the two spade connectors and place your wires on the spade connectors. Once this is complete, you are ready to put the side panel back on and begin using the stove.

16. I connected the fresh air kit to the back of my unit and it didn't seem to help at all.

For this work correctly, you will need to remove the side panel from the stove and then connect the air inlet to the back of the firebox with one of the two pieces of flex pipe. You will also need to remove the plug from behind the firepot. If you need further assistance with this please contact customer service at 1-800-750-2723 ext. 5050.
