As I was taking the dog out, looking at the chimney and intake tube, it occurred to me you may have been referring to one of those. They both leave the house from the second floor, and I've had the chimney completely off of the house to clean it out since I began having issues. I haven't, however, inspected the intake tube other than to make certain it was on the air inlet of the stove completely.Are you absolutely sure you don't have a mouse house in the venting somewhere?
For me, a couple hungry barn cats work well.....You are not kidding. Between working in car repair and living in a rural area, I've seen them wreak havoc. We buy wire loom wrap from the local Honda dealership when repairing rodent based wiring issues. They've developed a loom tape wrap that contains something that repels rodents, and it works pretty well.
I thought you reset the board before?
Hi - new to forum and my first post. I recently acquired a 25-PDV from my father and when I plug in the system, the control board lights up with the last settings but doesn't respond to any inputs, not On or any changes to the heat or blower inputs. I checked the fuse and there is continuity...www.hearth.com
If you do call, most likely put on hold, I'd sent them an Email with problem and everything you have done... Used to be a Englander Stove person that used to help out here...I have not contacted Englander yet. Think it's a waste of time calling them without being at the stove? Work's pretty slow today...
I was starting to think email would be better. Called eight times this afternoon and couldn't get someone. Thanks for the heads up.If you do call, most likely put on hold, I'd sent them an Email with problem and everything you have done... Used to be a Englander Stove person that used to help out here...
Looks like that call will need to wait until Monday morning. M-F 8-5 schedule for the tech support is tough for a weekend stove warrior like myself. Can't help but think it's going to be a control panel issue like you said, especially after getting a good look behind the baffle plate.Best time to call support is first thing in the AM. Email will work to but very slow compared to talking through steps.
It does make sense, and I don't need to cough up the dough to replace a control panel. As an added bonus, I now know the stove inside, outside, and upside down.That does make since now. I didn’t know how far back the motor issues went.
