Hellol,

I have a Dansons Pelpro home heater pellet stove that stopped giving out very much heat. I have replaced the combustion fan, the computer board, the vacuum switch, the high limit switch and the door gasket with no luck.
I am open to suggestions.

Thank You

Sorry, not too familiar with pellet stoves. I did a google search of "danspro pellet stove not heating"

www.hearth.com has a few question on its forums with Danspro problems.

So in your case it sounds like the pellets are burning? Not feeding fast enough?

Try sweeping the chimney. That's a common problem. And if your unit is a fireplace insert installed without a chimney liner, you're in for a great BIG surprise.

I used to install and service quadrafire pellet stoves. Im not familiar with your model but most pellet stoves have heat exchanger tubes that blow the hot air into the room. Generally these are at the top of your combustion chamber. Ash will build up around these tubes and actually insulate them preventing the steel from heating up to an efficient level. Removing all the baffels within the firebox and cleaning the ash from around these tubes should provide an immediate difference in the amount of heat you get.
