Woodburner blowers will not turn on


Hey guys. New to the site. Looks awesome!
I am having a problem with the blowers on my woodburner. They do turn on but it seems like I really have to have the burner running balls to the wall for the blowers to trigger. Seems like I'm wasting a lot of heat! Also, the blowers turn on and off frequently for some reason (When I have a good fire going). I am guessing it ALL has something to do with the thermodisc relay that triggers the blowers at a certain temp. The disc installed is a T-O-D60T12 120-130 degree F. Do you guys think this is the problem? Is it faulty from the factory or do I just need a different temp thermodisc? Thanks guys!!!

They get old, stiffen up and lose their accuracy (sounds like me, LOL). They are a simple bimetal disc and don't last forever. I would get a new one.

We used to have them for limit controls and they were notoriously inaccurate. Graingers/Johnstone may have them.

Hi William I have the same problem with mine but I just fixed it, go to allied electronics the have all kinds of thermodisc, my stove is from usstove and the disc they put in is just to hot, I put in one that closes at 110 and opens back up at around 90, works great I am not losing all that heat anymore, remember that they start when they close and turn off when they open I ordered mine backwards the first time, good luck.
