    Long time no post I just wanted to share this humorous video because I have been to so many home behind other service techs that charge 400$ for pellet service and don't clean blowers. Every appliance I service I will pull blowers that can be removed and clean. Blower cleaning

    Lopi Berkshire stove

    The blower on my Lopi Berkshire stove (part #99000153) is not working properly. It turns of for a couple minutes at a time and then shuts off for ~ 5 minutes before coming back on again for a couple of minutes. It used to just keep blowing until we turned it off. Any help is appreciated.

    The bearings went out of my fan last night, there are no dealers near me anymore, and online everything is $200 or more. Is there a cheaper option, or where can I get a bearing kit and how difficult is it to replace the bearings? Thanks in advance
