hi i am new to this forum and i feel like i shouldnt be here this soon. ive been having pellet stove issues for months now so i broke down and purchased a PelPro PP130. Super excited when it came in i bought a bunch of pellets. I read the user manuel to make sure i didnt mess anything up. I did its first launch cycle to prime the stove the blower kicks on everything works normal. Well i tried the sequence 3 times and all i get is a red light flashing 4 times reading "missed ignition". well after being very frustrated because i started off so excited and confident this time i went to bed figured id try to ignite my own fire in the morning like everyone tells me the ignitor has nothing to do with how it runs after its lit. So i started a fire got it rippin it says to keep it on high for 30 min then shut it off and let it cool. I had a bonfire in this thing for 30 minutes 0 fan kicked on i can fry an egg (or my hand) on the side of it. i let it fully cool down and wanted to try again now that the paint is cured and i wont be smoked out. i manualy light a fire again got it rippin.. put the setting on 6 rather than high, it ran for 55 minutes straight got hotter than the previous run still no fan to blow heat out. the only time the fan kicks on is during the ignition process and once i start a fire and it gets going the fan shuts off assuming its waiting for the entire unit to warm up well at this point i can almost fry an egg on the backside now i know something isnt right. i am extremely dissapointed trying to keep my cool because i am very hot headed when it comes to spending this much cash on something that has 2 or more problems brand new i have 0 patience and i am hoping somebody here can help me please i live in the adirondacks and its usually 5 degrees outside luckily it is 40 right now. thank you, john

probly a good idea just wasnt sure if anyone here would know if it was something stupid i can fix myself. ether way its getting brought back to tractor supply for my money back if they cant diagnose it over the phone monday, even as charred as it is lol!!!!!:ZZZ:ZZZ:ZZZ:ZZZ
One thing you could try that wouldn’t mess with your warranty is to unplug the stove for a min or two, plug back in and may reset your control board. If you haven’t already done that:)
I do not know much about your stove but a Harmon set on stove temp manual burn instead of auto would do the same as your stove is doing
I have a PP-130 Pelpro that I purchased this year. Worked fine first ton of pellets . Started not wanting to turn the auger. Checked and had no blockage. Reset by unplugging the unit. Worked good until now. It will only feed pellets on low or high setting. Any ideas?
