    The auger light isn't flashing. The stove is on, the red level light is on, but normally the green light flashes when the auger turns, and it's not. Any ideas? I turned it off this morning and cleaned the ash pan and burnpot. Turned it back on, and still no green light.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Have you checked the fuses on the control board board

    have you check the pressure hose?

    Did this happen AFTER YOU CLEANED IT?
    check and make sure your door and ash pan are shut tight.

    Actually, false alarm. I cycled the power through the breaker, and turned it back on. It's working now. Very strange.

    When it started back up, and the auger started working again, it seemed like it was struggling to feed pallets. Maybe there was an obstruction, and it worked itself out.
