I have a US Stove 2000 wood stove. I just put it in just before the winter and bought it brand new. Now, a few weeks ago, I wanted to get the blower to turn off automatically when the fire went out. I bought a sensor off of ebay that had to be put inline with the hot wire on the blower. My first attempt, I took the blower off and took it apart and cut the hot wire, ran it out a hole that I drilled in the side of the blower to the side of the stove and back in to the blower that turned the blower on and off when it was going from cold to hot and vice versa. It worked, except I was extremely paranoid about running a hot 120v AC wire to a sensor on the side of a temperature hot stove that could easily melt the wire and electrocute me. Also, where the hot wire connected to the sensor, it was unprotected, and I cound't find a way to protect it, so I had two bare hot wires connecting to the sensor on the side of the wood stove with kids running around. Figured I was asking for trouble. So, after researching it a little, I finally decided it was safer to find a way to switch the outlet and I undid everything I did inside the blower. I put the wire back. I have one extra wire nut on the inside. I ended up just dishing out $60 or something for a factory made switch for the heat, because I was still paranoid even when I made a switching outlet that I had to switch the hot wire and the hot wire had to touch a hot stove... seemed dangerous. But, none the less, I put the stove back the way it was but still I did mess with it and it's not 100% factory anymore because I did open it and there is an extra wire nut on the inside. But the wood stove's blower will work fine for hours or days at times, then all the sudden it will start vibrating and rattling. I can get it to stop by reaching behind the stove and changing the RPMs of the blower and it will fix it for a few hours or days and then it will start rattling again. I'm thinking my only real fix will be to buy a new blower. But, those things are like $200. Does anyone have a creative way to get it to stop rattling by paddening it somehow with something that isn't sensitive to heat? Or does someone know where to buy a replacement blower or an aftermarket blower that isn't $200. Maybe more like $50?
