Min Max Settings for Leisure Line Pocono

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.

Default setting are 6 min 40 max But I get red coals falling off grate when its working hard. I got the max set at 27 now and its better but dose anyone have experience with this model? They say that you should have about 2 inches of burnt ash before it falls off. is this achievable when it's working hard?

I don't have your model stove, but the min/max is adjustable to what ever your situation warrants. The default in the Coaltrol manual for kokers needed some serious adjustment for my actual stove. The min was close, but the default max was way too high.

Once you get the min max set per the manual, you may find that you need to adjust it (especially the max) even further to match your actual heating situation (mostly done to temper any temp swings that you may have due to the layout of your house, rate of heat loss, etc. etc.

Mike,

Every stove seems to be slightly different. Try lowering the max by 1 and then leave it for two hours.

Every stove is different . What works for one, may not for someone else, you always have to tweak them a little.

Actually 1" of ash is ok at full burn. as long you are not pushing hot coals off the end. Only change it a couple points at a time and wait a least an hour or two and check it. Coal and the Coaltrol takes time to react. Don;t make huge changes.

The newer Pocono 110 burners have a damper plate on the combustion fan. Does yours have this? If it does open your manual back up and it explains how to set it. Thanks, Dave

My stove dose not have damper. I got the max setting at 17 this leaves 1.5 to 2 inches of ash. If I set it to 18 it rides very close. I guess this must be the setting.

I bought it used. I'm thinking it's about 4 to 5 years old.

It has a TS2 V3 coal-trol. Is that an indication of age?

Have you ever cleaned under the grate? Sounds like an air restriction. Tips & Tricks

I bought my Pocono new in November 2014 & I don't see any damper plate on the combustion fan.

Every time we have a cold spell that makes the Pocono burn hard I have been adjusting the MAX F/R down an increment or two because I'm still seeing red coals right at the edge of the grate. This morning, I cut it back to 26. I wonder how much more I'll have to cut it back?

Mike,

I have a similar issue with my stove. My max is set at 18 right now. I did a complete tear-down of the stove in the Fall and reassembled it better than I did the first time. My combustion fan has a restrictor plate which is half open and my draft is almost perfect. I can't explain why the Max is so low, but could be that some feeder motors are just faster than others?
