    So I now have three controllers from my Englander 25-EP that have failed for different reasons. I'm looking for someone who repairs these and maybe I can have some spares for the next time it fails.

    Pelletstovecontrolrepair.com was suggested to me a few weeks back, I can't cut and paste right now but if you search for controller repair you will see my post for a st Croix repair service. I have not used them but it might be a good option.

    What were the kind of problems you had with the control boards?

    The relay for the combustion air blower would chatter when I would plug the stove in. It would take numerous plug unplug cycles until it would work correctly. This only happened when it was cold and humid, I have mine in an insulated pole barn. I had a tech guy who works in circuit boards at work look at it, tested the relay and found no problems. He did clean the board up and I let it dry for a week, I have not had a problem since. I'm my case it could have been some dirt making a connection where it should not have been made.

    I have since repaired the controllers myself. I know that at least one Triac and one Diac/opto-isolater had failed on each controller. I replaced all Triacs and Opto-isolators. Cost about $8 to fix each controller. Sourced parts from Digi-key. Use a really good surge suppressor on your input power to help eliminate this in the future.

    HeatWave Electronics http://pelletstovecontrollerrepair.com/ He fixed my Whitfield Advantage III this past winter. Great price.
    Do you have a UPS connected to it. Maybe you have power problems and need a good noise/surge filter ?
