Ok, I think it is a bad TC firepot but not sure. The stove has been trying to light over and over but did not light. It kept on dropping pellets and trying to light but then would just go into auto clean. The ignitor is getting hot. Then the last time, it actually did light but then went into auto clean dropping the fire into the ash pan. Lucky I had just cleaned out all the pellets from all the missing firerings. Kind of scary. I have unplugged it now. The error message says miss ignition. Do you agree its a TC or do you think there is something else going on? Should I try to give it another shot at lighting?
