    Pellets made of wood and hay will produce more ash than straight wood pellets. The wood and hay pellets that have been tested in your Eco-65 consisted of 1/3 hay and 2/3 wood. Make sure that any wood and hay pellets you put in your Eco-65 respect that mix (+/- 10%).

  • Page 18: Lighting Procedure, Unit Controls (see Figure 16)

    2.6. UNIT CONTROLS (See Figure 16) The blowers and automatic fuel supply are controlled from a panel on the right-hand side of the ECO-65. The control panel functions are as follows. MODE SWITCH When the mode switch is pressed, you will be able to choose the Manual or the Thermostat mode, or to turn off the appliance.

  • Page 19: Opening Door, Convection Blower (room Air Fan), If The Stove Runs Out Of Pellets

    CONVECTION BLOWER SPEED CONTROL The convection blower speed varies directly with the fuel feed rate. Reducing the blower speed will also reduce the noise. When the “CONVECTION BLOWER SPEED CONTROL” button is pushed, the convection blower will switch to its lowest speed. The convection blower will remain at its lowest speed unless the stove reaches a certain temperature.

    2.11. SHUTDOWN PROCEDURE Turning your Drolet stove off is a matter of pressing the “MODE” control panel switch, until the “OFF” led goes on. The blowers will continue to operate until internal firebox temperatures has fallen to a preset level.

  • Page 21: Thermostatic Mode

    Location of the thermostat is very important to obtain the best comfort and efficiency from your ECO-65. The thermostat should be mounted 50 inches from the floor on a wall located 15 to 20 feet from the stove. You should avoid an installation directly in front of the stove to avoid cycling.(See figure 19)

  • Page 22: Operating Safety Precautions

    N.B.: It is possible to change the setting of your unit such that if the thermostat does not call for heat after 45 minutes, the unit will remain at the lowest heat setting (#1) but will not shut down (this is the PILOT ON mode). The stove will remain at the lowest heat level until the thermostat calls for heat again.

    MAINTENANCE FAILURE TO CLEAN AND MAINTAIN THIS UNIT AS INDICATED CAN RESULT IN POOR PERFORMANCE AND SAFETY HAZARDS. NEVER CLEAN WHEN HOT. WARNING : THE USE OF A DOMESTIC, CENTRAL OR COMMERCIAL VACUUM CLEANER TO PERFORM THE MAINTENANCE OF YOUR PELLET STOVE IS NOT RECOMMENDED. ASH PARTICLES ARE SO FINE THAT IT CAN DAMAGE THE MOTOR OF SUCH VACUUM CLEANERS.

  • Page 25: Maintenance Of The Combustion Chamber, Heat Exchangers And Blower Housing

    3.2. MAINTENANCE OF THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER, HEAT EXCHANGERS AND BLOWER HOUSING Remove and clean the baffle inside the combustion chamber after burning +/- 10 bags of pellets. 3.3. MAINTENANCE OF THE HEAT EXCHANGERS AND BLOWER HOUSING The heat exchangers should be inspected regularly during the heating season. Easy access is provided: To access the heat exchangers, remove the decorative panel and the air jacket access panel located on the left hand side of the stove.

    3.4. VENTING SYSTEM MAINTENANCE REGULARLY EXAMINE THE FLUE PIPES, THE JOINTS, AND THE SEALING TRIMS TO ENSURE THAT THE SMOKE AND THE COMBUSTION GASES ARE NOT TRANSPORTED INTO THE AIR DUCTING SYSTEM. The most efficient method to sweep the venting system is by using a 4-inch pellet brush. Brush downwards so ash, soot and creosote residues will come off the inner surface and fall at the bottom of the venting system where they can be removed easily.
