Hi all,

Brand new to the forum and was just given a 1997 Harman pp38+ with a new distribution, auger and blower motor. I had I try all set up and figured out how to test it which both the blower and feed rate work but shut off after a few seconds in the test mode. I ran the stove for awhile but the blower did not turn on by itself with the knob all the way turned up. The auger also did not move at all. Any ideas on what I’m doing wrong or is wrong with the stove would be greatly appreciated thanks!
