Stoves in the last few years are required to have a hopper lid switch that interrupts the auger from turning when the hopper lid is open. Now that being said we will have a test. 1.) If the hopper lid is in the open position what will happen? 2.) If the switch is broken what will happen? ***hint two choices here and both can be correct** 3.) If the lid has something strange like a PELLET keeping the lid from shutting all the way what is the likely out come? 4.) If the lid has a switch and the switch is closed prior to the lid shutting what will happen? Wait for it Wait for it Wait for it Answer is............. The auger will not turn. Now what happens if the auger is not feeding fuel to the fire???? wait for it no fire. Did we all learn a lesson here today?
