    When you said power surge; I remembered something. A few weeks before the initial failure, we had a thunder storm, in which we lost our computer wiring connector [ have to use a wireless internet connector now], the computer router, & the wireless phone panel. Wonder if that weakened the circuit board ? Just double checked, & still getting .2V, when a fuse is inserted in the holder. And I really haven't had a beer. park4041.

    Actually connected one wire to metal on the stove & other probe to the fuse holder, .2V.

    Still being stubborn here...
    Are you measuring as gfreek (post #29) says? To neutral? Measuring to the stove body may not be accurate, depending on the quality of its ground. These measurements just don't make sense to me (still…).

    I don't consider you being stubborn, just being helpful. I will measure, to the neutral wire, as soon as I can. I went to see the pellet stove dealer, who sold me the stove, & explained my problem. He seems to think it may be the ESP, said most of thier problelms have been with the probe; being dirty. He also said that an ohms reading wouldn't tell anything. Have to use the test meter Harman provides. I'll post a reply, once i've checked it. Thanks again park4041.
