After my 10 year old pellet stove sat unplugged for the summer, I plugged it in to use it for first time this season. Quadrafire stoves run through a "startup routine" when you first plug them in, but before you call for heat. Takes about 20 minutes. During that "startup routine" the control board died. Rather pungent smell filled the room. I unplugged the stove, removed the control box and opened it up to see what had fried. Best I can tell it was the transformer. Everything else looked fine. The strongest smell seemed to be the transformer. Before I put a new control box in the stove I'm hoping somebody can tell me what I should check so as not to fry a brand new control box. What might have caused the old box to cook itself during that initial startup sequence? Thanks for any help I can get.
