  • Page 7: Venting Requirements

  • Page 9: Through The Wall Installation

    Installation THROUGH THE WALL INSTALLATION (RECOMMENDED INSTALLATION) To vent the unit through the wall, connect the pipe adapter to the exhaust motor adapter. If the exhaust adapter is at least 18-inches above ground level, a straight section of pellet vent pipe can be used through the wall.

  • Page 10: Outside Air Supply

    OUTSIDE AIR SUPPLY (optional) Depending on your location and home construction, outside air may be necessary for optimal performance. Metal pipe (solid or flexible) must be used for the outside air installation. PVC pipe is NOT approved and should NEVER be used.
  • Page 11: Operation

    Do not operate your stove with the viewing door open. The auger will not feed pellets under these circ*mstances and a safety concern may arise from sparks or fumes entering the room. This heater is designed and approved for premium hardwood pellet fuel only. Any other type of fuel burned in this heater will void the warranty and safety listing.
  • Page 12: Control Panel

    CONTROL PANEL Turning the stove OFF/ON, as well as adjustments for the fuel feed rate and room air fan speed are performed by pressing the appropriate button(s) on the control panel which is located on the lower left-hand side of your King/Ashley stove (see FIGURE 10).
  • Page 13: Start-Up Procedure

    START-UP PROCEDURE Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid, or similar liquids to start or “freshen up” a fire in this stove. Keep all such liquids well away from the stove while it is in use. Verify that the hopper is clean and free of foreign matter. Verify that all of the required exhaust/inlet connections have been made in accordance with this manual and that the stove is plugged into an outlet (an outlet surge protector is highly recommended).
  • Page 14: Daily Operation

    DAILY OPERATION The hopper and stove top will be hot during operation; therefore, you should always use some type of hand protection when refueling your stove. Never place your hand near the auger while the stove is in operation. This unit should be filled when the hopper level drops below 3-inches. In the event of a power outage, the stove WILL NOT function.
  • Page 15: Interior Chambers

    Maintenance INTERIOR CHAMBERS Periodically remove and clean the burnpot and the area inside the burnpot housing. In particular it is advisable to clean out the holes in the burnpot to remove any build up that may prevent air from moving through the burn pot freely. If a vacuum is used to clean your stove, we suggest using a vacuum designed for ash removal.
  • Page 16: Trouble Shooting

    Disconnect the power cord before performing any maintenance! NOTE: Turning the ON/OFF Switch to ”OFF” does not disconnect all power to the electrical components of the stove. Never try to repair or replace any part of the stove unless instructions for doing so are given in this manual. All other work should be done by a trained technician.
