This is my first experience with any pellet stove. My fiance' had bought it new in 2006. I just started researching, and learning about these stoves, hoping to get it back up and running for supplimentary heat. First,.. I took everything apart and cleaned everywhere I could. I installed the outside air intake kit. (10yrs it ran without). I added a surge protector. I got the lower auger cleaned out, and unjammed. I believe it needs both auger bearings, as the augers feel like they are just flopping around in the tubes. I noticed that someone had bypassed the vacuume switch for the top auger. I replaced the wires, figuring, I would replace the switch if needed, but it was probly bypassed for the wrong reason,(dirty stove?). I also did a hard reset, as I have no idea what others may have done in the past. The first test run, about an hour in,. .I noticed that the room blower had still not kicked on, even tho heat was starting to pick up, I felt the blower motor and it was Super Hot At that point, I disconnected the blower wires. About 10mins after I disconnected them, the stoves main fuse blew. I thought maybe the bad motor may have weakened the fuse, so the next day, I tried again, but with the room blower fan disconnected the whole time. After an hour and 20mins,.. the fuse blew again. Any idea if having the room blower motor disconnected, could cause fuse to blow? How about if that vacuume switch where bad, could that cause the fuse to blow? I will be putting the new auger bearings in, as well as the new room blower, then will test again, but if the fuse blows then, I will be at a loss, as where to check next. Oh,.. after fuse blew,.. I replaced it, and put stove into shutdown mode, at this point, the stove ran fine all the way until it shut off. Not sure if that means anything, but figured I would share all my findings.
