Why Won’t My Pellet Stove Ignite?

There may be a few reasons why your pellet stove might not be igniting. Here are the most common reasons:

  • There is a power supply or electrical issue. Make sure the stove is getting power and that the circuit breaker hasn’t tripped. If everything looks good to go, the problem may be due to a malfunctioning control board that isn’t sending the signal to ignite. To be sure, reach out to Mountain Man Fireplace & Chimney for an inspection.
  • The igniter is dirty or damaged. The igniter is responsible for getting the pellets hot enough to ignite. Soot and ash buildup can prevent the igniter from working properly, but your problem may not be that simple. As time goes on, igniters can succumb to wear and tear and will need to be replaced.
  • There is a blockage. Proper air circulation is crucial for a pellet stove to ignite and burn cleanly. If the air intake or vent is blocked, air can’t circulate the way it needs to and your pellet stove can’t ignite.
  • Poor pellet quality. Low-quality or damp pellets can fail to ignite. Only use high-quality, dry pellets, and keep them stored in a dry, covered place to prevent moisture absorption.

Why Is My Pellet Stove Making Loud Noises?

Any time a heating appliance starts making unusual noises, it’s a major warning sign that something is wrong. They are some of the issues we encounter often:

  • The pellet stove is dirty. It is important to adhere to an annual professional maintenance plan, but soot and ash can build up on components like the auger, blower fan, or exhaust fan in between yearly cleanings. As a general rule, be sure to clean the stove after you use it.
  • Parts are breaking down. Worn-out or damaged parts can also lead to grinding, rattling, or squealing sounds. Annual inspections will allow you to monitor parts for wear and tear.
  • Issues with overfeeding or underfeeding pellets. When your stove feeds too many pellets (overfeeding) or not enough (underfeeding) into the burn pot, the uneven burning can cause loud popping or banging noises. This happens because the pellets don’t ignite consistently.

Why Would My Pellet Stove Stop Working Suddenly?

Sometimes, your pellet stove will give you a warning that a problem is brewing. But there are instances where your pellet stove may break down without notice. 

  • You’re out of fuel. This is a simple problem that is easy to check and fix. A restock on pellets should get your stove up and running again.
  • There is a power outage. Check and see if the stove is receiving power. A tripped circuit breaker, a blown fuse, or a power outage could be the reason your stove suddenly stops working.
  • The stove is overheating. Some newer pellet stove models come equipped with built-in safety features that shut down the stove if it overheats. If your stove has a blockage that’s preventing adequate ventilation or you haven’t cleaned it in a while, it may shut down to protect itself.
  • There is an issue with the sensor. Pellet stoves have safety sensors to keep an eye on different aspects of the stove’s operation, like temperature and airflow. If one of these sensors malfunctions, it could trigger the stove to shut down automatically to prevent any safety hazards.
