Feeder Motor Not Working On Leisure Line Pocono Stoker W/Coal-Trol

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

My feeder motor is no longer feeding my leisure line pocono stoker. I thought it was the motor itself so I upgraded from the 90k BTU to the 110K BTU unit (thanks Matt). The stove started up and ran fine but during the night it went out. It seems to have stopped feeding coal. The coal-trol unit is about 3 years old, it is what came with the stove. This happened before I upgraded the burner, just assumed the feeder motor quit. Feed rates settings are for min is 7, max is set at 40. I thought I read someplace with the older coal-trol units the motor should run every 100 seconds. My is not running at all but if I unplug and plug back in it will run and feed. It seems after running a few hours the internal clock or whatever is counting may not be running? Do I need to return it?

Did you try plugging it into an outlet to make sure its not the motor?

Best best is to call CoalTrol....
Check the advanced settings, maybe it went to IGN Mode (Ignition ON mode where the stoker/blower does not come on). If it has that feature in the software. YOu have to hold the menu button down for a while and go into the Advanced mode.

You know when people say it was "better back in my day"?

They were right.
