Wood pellet stoves use small, compressed pellets for fuel. These pellets are fed into the firebox of the stove with a special feeder that, in more complicated versions, can even detect fire temperature and add more pellets as needed. The stoves come with a couple of key advantages: They produce far less pollution than normal wood stoves and are very energy efficient.
Many wood pellet stoves are on automatic start systems that monitor the inflow of pellets into the stove and the temperatures produced. If temperatures do not rise above a certain level soon enough, the feeder stops channeling pellets into the firebox, which can malfunction and cause the pellet stove to never start a full burn. The problem is sometimes with the monitor devices themselves or with the feeder or the supply of pellets.
NRA answer--you need more guns.
