FAQs in Automatic Ignition feature

My Stove has the auto Ignition feature. Can I operate it manually and can I run the appliance without the Igniter working?

a)   If you have the Baby Countryside or Winchester AC or DC models you are able to operate the appliance in the manual mode, thermostat mode or fully auto mode. The auto ignition system will be operating in all three of these modes but you can light the fire manually.  Simply place a small amount of wood pellet fuel and starter fuel in the firepot and light.  The igniter will assist in the lighting process.  If the igniter is not operating you can unplug the igniter (leaving the two wires unhooked and not bypassed) and light the fire manually as explained above.  If you have a DC model MagnuM appliance, the igniter system will not work if you are on DC only power. 

b)   The auto igniter system in the Country Flame product works very similar to the MagnuM product line except you do not change from one mode to another.  The system does that for you.  You still are able to manually light the fire as explained above.
