    Many stoves use a snap disk. After the stove has cooled, press the center reset button. You'll hear/feel a click if it had tripped.

    Remember, this is similar to a fuse or circuit breaker. Something caused it to trip... you need to figure out why the stove had overheated, especially if it happens again.

    my other post " please help, I want to smash it..." explains why... my auger turns continuously, and at a fast rate on any setting.. instead of smothering the fire with a million pellets, I turned up the draft and blower on high. did a great job keeping up, but wow did it get hot. gotta do it though.

    So there is something I need to set? the manual says its been tripped, but nothing else.. maybe ill just call the company for the third time today haha.
