Pellet stove misses ignition in the initial start up in the morning after being set low overnight. Once I restart it, it runs fine all day. I replaced the igniter but still have the issue. Main control board was replaced last year. Looks like the igniter is not getting voltage as there are in burned pellets in the ash bin.

You can get unburned pellets in the ash pan from a missed ignition due to the stove auto cleaning again afterwards. Are you Having any other problems other then a missed ignition?
