    Fireplace Motor Control

    Quadrafire 7100 fireplace. Motor is rated at 0.93A and 60W.

    Current setup has a toggle switch inline with a rotary fan controller. (http://downloads.hearthnhome.com/ins...s/433_3610.pdf), page 22.

    I tried replacing the rotary fan controller with an RRD-2ANF. At "high" the fan runs. However, at any other setting the blower motor does not operate. On the rotary fan controller, I noticed there is a trim dial that has been adjusted. Are there any settings on the RRD-2ANF to adjust?

    I'm not aware of any adjustment on the 2ANF. In any case, the 2ANF is not designed to work with that type of motor. You could try one of the adjustable fan controls (like FS-5E) but it would not give you system control and it sounds like that is what you already have.

    I ended up changing up the wire from how it was originally: Power Source->Fan Control->Switch->Fireplace. I ended up going with Power Source->RRD-8ANS->SFS-5E. While the ideal scenario would have been to be able to adjust the speed with Radio-RA2/homekit. However this does allow for control on and off remotely.
