Combustion Blower Rheostat Kit (4100)
Why add the Rheostat kit to my stove? Adding this kit can improve the BTU output by 10% by allowing you to 'fine tune' the combustion air. (The standard combustion blower operates at constant speed.) The original reason for its manufacture was so that older stoves can use the negative draft kits. Some older stoves do not have the allen screws in the back to adjust airflow to optimize for wood pellets and could not be converted without this rheostat kit. Older corn stoves include, CornFlame, CornGlo, SnowFlame, and some older AmaizAblaze (Nesco Corn Stoves) stoves. Increasing combustion air pressure may increase the BTU output, but will also increase fuel consumption.
