    I have a Winrich Dynasty. When it gets hot, the circulation blower stops but the pellets continue to feed. After about 10 minutes the blower kicks in again, then goes out 5 minutes later, repeat. If it is an overheating issue, it doesn't make sense to me that the pellets would continue to feed. My exhaust is pretty long; into the wall for 2 feet, turns 90 degrees, travels horizontally inside a wall for 17 ft, then out an exterior wall and 90 degrees up about 6 more feet. This stove has a high and low limit snap disc, as well as a vacuum switch on the exhaust port. What does the vacuum switch do? Thanks for any replies, please email to stuball@sugareestitches.com.

    Usually there is a snap switch that controls the convection blower. Its possible yours is worn out and not working correctly anymore.
