- My 6035 corn pellet stove keeps going out after about 30 minutes.
Also can the blower be turned up to force more air for circulation.
This unit is controlled by a forced air exhaust system , however if your exhaust slide is in too far it will cause the unit to burn out from lack of oxygen. Re-adjust your slide to allow for more air. The circulation blower will stay at a constant speed.

- Having a problem with the auger on the 6035 corn stove. It will not pull the wood pellets through the auger to the agitator. It works for a while then it quits bringing the pellets through. The auger works but there are no pellets. It seems as though it crushes them up and does not push them through.
We do have a new polished Auger that seems to work better than the old style that you have.

- WE INSTALLED OUR STOVE THIS WEEK AND THE AUGER THAT ROTATES THE CORN ALREADY QUIT WORKING. HOW DO WE GET IT FIXED?
Check to make sure the Auger has not slipped out of its track, if you will twist the auger Counter-Clockwise to see if it turns freely. If so it has slipped out.

- We are having a problem with a dirty sooty stove. Worked great for the first six weeks now it is so sooty that the glass is solid black within a half hour of lighting corn is very dry no other changes made.
There are several things that can cause the unit to soot up the glass. 1) Air shutter not openned far enough. 2) the corn moisture content too high. 3) Chimney clogging up from soot. 4) Air ports above the brick in firebox clogging from soot. If you will turn your unit up on high every few hours and let it burn off the soot that will help.

- Our 6033 ran pretty good for two days. Now it shuts itself down in about 30 min. or we can't even get it to burn at all. We have it vented up from basement floor about 5 feet. Does it need more motor to get the chimminy to work. the first 2 days we had lots of wind here now not so much
NO. The motor should be more than strong enough to blow the exhaust out 5 feet. Look in the unit above the brick on the inside of the firebox. Make sure that the holes for the draft are not clogged. Also make sure the air shutter is open and not closed.

- Our stove works great on pellets but we get big globbs and lots of half burned ash with corn-- we can't seem to get good results with corn.
You will need to add a substance called Oyster Shell for the breakdown of the build up of clinkers on your agitator.

- When I turn my unit off it keeps running and the auger keeps feeding.
For safety reasons the stove will continue to run at a much lower heat setting for 10 minutes. After 10 Minutes, the auger will slow down further and continue until the " LOW LIMIT SAFETY" sensor tells the control board it is safe to shutdown.

- Auger came loose, is it broken ?
NO, the auger sits in a "T" slot groove in the back of the shaft and may have slid forward just enough to come out of that slot. If you turn the auger in a circular motion while pushing it back in you will feel it slide into that "T" slot coupler, you will not be able to turn the auger by hand anymore.

- Unit is extremely hot and the green light is flashing, whats wrong ?
Your Hi Limit Safety Sensor is the cause of the green light flashing. This is due to the fact if the unit gets too hot the safety switch will shut the unit down. Let the unit cool and then restart.

- Is there a fresh air kit for outside air ?
Yes part # 67FAK. This allows combustion air to enter the firepot from outside. This will increase the efficiency and reduce the likelihood of creating negative pressure or vacuum effect in your home.

- How high should my pipe be ?
When choosing a location for your American Harvest , make sure you meet the minimum clearances listed in the Owners Manual for both the stove and the venting system. We recommend a pellet vent kit ( Dura-Vent or metal Fab are excellent examples), Which includes the necessary clean-out "T", with a four foot vertical run and cap.

- How far open should my slide draft be set ?
During start up pull the draft control out about 1/4 inch. ( Note ) depending on the fuel, this may need to be adjusted. After the fire has been established ( usually within 10 minutes ) set the heat setting to " 3 " and adjust the draft slide accordingly.

- How often should I clean out this unit ?
Everyday this unit should be checked to make sure there is no accumulation of soot behind the back wall slide cleanout. Also make sure that the hole in the top of the firebox is free from soot and ash.

- Fire keeps going out for no reason.
If the air shutter isn't set correctly it can cause the flame to go out. Make sure the auger has not stopped feeding fuel to the pot. High moisture content in the fuel will cause flame to go out. The sensors on the unit will shut it down if it gets too hot.
798 visitor(s) thought this was helpful. Do you?

- My fire burns with a lazy Orange Flame, what causes this ?
It could be from the following: moisture too high in fuel, blockage of combustion air, glass door not shut or too loose, draft control knob set too low, feed rate for fuel is too high, inadequate combustion air, clean out plates missing or not fully closed.

The air inlet for combustion comes from underneath by the ash pan.

- My stove will not shut down properly no matter what I do, I have to unplug it to shutdown. Any suggestions?
This unit has a saftey heat sensor and will shut down when the firebox is below 90 degrees. Pull out the draft slide on the left hand side of the unit. This will cause the unit to open its exhaust flow completely allowing the unit to blow all the heat out making it shut down sooner.

- I have a model 6037, and the auger doesn't work all the time.
If the stove senses a vacuum leak (air), it will not operate properly. Make sure the door is sealing tightly. Also, check the pressure switch and vacuum hose. Make sure the ash slides are closed tightly during operation.

- I have a 6037 stove, the glass gets completely covered with soot within an hour of running, and I can't keep the stove running on settings #1 and #2, I burn good Iowa corn, 14%. My father-in-law doesn't have these problems with his 6035. Can I adjust the damper with the 6037 to keep my glass cleaner? Do you have a field technician in Iowa, I would like to have him look at my 6037, to be honest I wasn't too happy with in last year.
Ok, we suggest a moisture content of about 11%, so where 14% is good the dryer is better. You may try adding some pellets to absorb some of the moisture. A moist corn will cause alot of ash and soot if too moist. Once you get your fire started like 10 mins, turn up to 3 setting adjust the manual damper on the side of your stove where the control board is pull it out about 1/8 inch, do not let the fuel builup past 11/2 in the burn pot, if over this it could cause your stove to burn dirty, if too low in the firepot it will go out.
No two stoves are going to burn the same. Homes are differnt and a lot of factors also play factors in the operation of a unit.
Hope this helps
