Hi, I'm relatively new to this forum and this is my first post so here goes. hh: I have a Lopi Pioneer pellet stove (2001). Has run fantastic up until now, no problems. Two weeks ago fuses started to blow due to grounded/singed wires. Had service come out to fix while my wife was home. ( Now i know it was a relatively minor issue but this being the first problem I wasn't sure how big the problem was, hence, the service call.) During the course of this call my wife was told by the repair tech that the convection fan was going. This I knew anyway because it's been ticking since the winter began, ( a soft ticking) Well, he replaced the wires and fuses and turned it on manual and started it up. Now when I got home the fan was at full blast and the fan speed knob was unresponsive to turn it down.Realizing this was not good. I shut it off, let it cool down, and started it in auto.(which is how it is usually set) After starting it via the thermostat it still stayed on full blast and couldn't be turned down. So I called in another service call. Now my question is, did these blown fuses push my fan over the edge and that's what I need to replace or does it sound like a control panel problem. All other switches and lights are normal and responsive. The fan will simply not slow down anymore. I apologize if this seems like a simple question but I'm not sure if I can fix it myself and I don't want to pay to have the wrong thing replaced. Any, and I mean any input would be appreciated. Thanks for Listening!
