|Which parts are likely to need replacement on my pellet stove?|
Our manufacturers utilize quality components designed to last for many years. Some parts are subject to normal "wear and tear" will require replacement after a period of use, and are generally designed to be homeowner-maintained. These include:
Door gaskets - Being careful to avoid rubbing the door gaskets when cleaning the glass will help to keep them lasting the longest. When they become frayed, they will be ineffective at stopping air from being pulled into the stove, and will need to be replaced. You can buy a replacement and put it in yourself, or bring in your door and our Service Team can replace it for you. Approximate life - 1-2 seasons.
Igniters - These electrical components will eventually wear out. We recommend keeping a spare one on hand, and learning how to replace it (most are pretty easy to replace, even for the "technically challenged"). If one wears out during its warranty period, bring it in for a replacement. Approximate life - 1-2 seasons.
Temperature sensors - This can include small "snap discs", thermocouples, etc. They are sensitive electronic devices that will eventually wear out and need replacement. Approximate life -- 3-4 seasons.
Blowers - Pellet stoves have both combustion blowers (that pull in air to feed the fire, and push the exhaust outside) and convection blowers (that circulate the room air). When blowers that have worked quietly in the past start making rattling noises, they are probably beginning to wear out. Approximate life - 4-5 seasons.
