I have a Big E pellet stove. Replaced a convection blower for the second time. First one was tree years ago. Once installed the new blower, stove runs fine but blower is running at high speed all the time. The stove was working fine before installing new blower. Any thoughts?

Miswired, or shorted triac/relay. Have you unplugged the control for a few minutes to reset it?

Potentially shorted triacs, so it's putting full power to blower all the time.

Also think those control boards have a overide button to force blower to high speed independent of feed rate selection
