my exhaust motor just took a major dump. started to smoke. trying to locate a new one but the place i bought the stove from doesnt sell pellet stoves anymore. called other places in my location and they say they will look into it (we all know what that means). in the process of tearing the stove down to make sure no damage happened (fire). good thing i was home when it happened, wife was clueless LOL. need a few beers now to ease the scare. also yes stove gets cleaned every week, anal about that. thanks for any help.
