I just fired the Mt. Vernon AE up for the first time this season. It spent the summer unplugged. Earlier today I did my inspection of it -- All looked good. I filled the hopper, plugged it in, after auto-clean placed a handful of pellets in burn pot. About 10 min later she was burning wonderfully. I had a bit of a scare though when she then decided to throw a low burn pot temp. Luckily I retried, she restarted, and has been burning great since. It seems I either didn't place enough pellets in the burn pot to get it started or the feeder tube just needed to prime with pellets (or a combo of both). So, how did every one else start up go?
