Process for Repairing a Pellet Stove
The process for repairing a pellet stove involves hiring a certified technician that has the appropriate experience for repairing pellet stoves. The pellet stove repair technician that you contact should be able to come in and assess the condition of your pellet stove as well as identify the type of repair that needs to be completed for the stove.
Assessing the Repair Needed
The NFI certified technician should first perform a diagnostic test in order to determine where the problem lies. This diagnostic includes determining what the source of the problem is with the pellet stove. The repair diagnostic will pinpoint the location of the repair problem and help the technician determine how to proceed with the repair.
Conducting the Repair
Once the repair has been identified the NFI certified technician can obtain the parts needed to start the process of repairing the pellet stove. Whether the problem emanates from a bad starter or controller on the main stove unit or a leak in the stove pipe, the technician will order the parts and begin to make the fixes necessary to get the stove working properly again. Based on the experience and expertise of the technician, the repair itself should not take that long to accomplish or complete.
Testing the System
Once the repair has been completed by the technician a complete test should be conducted as the final part of the process to repair your pellet stove. This test will ensure that the problem, which was identified in the early steps to this process has been fixed and that no additional problems exist with your pellet stove. Once the tests have been completed, you should be on your way to using your pellet wood stove.
