Keystoker Convection Blower Rheostat Adjustment

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.

On my Keystoker furnace I have a Convection Blower Rheostat setting and the manul says it's to adjust the fan speed and sound of the convection blower but it makes no recommendation on the setting there is a white mark on the plate behind the knob ? Does anyone know how to adjust when I turn the knob in either directioin it does not sound like the blower is going higher or lower the blower always sounds the same ?.

Are you sure your listening to the right fan, the combustion fan runs 24/7 on high all the time if I'm not mistaken on newer K-stokers
