Well, in my earlier post, I lamented not being able to get out the warped medallion. I kept fooling with it, and realized it was frozen in place, not even jiggling. So I got a hammer and loosened it up. It was indeed warped and pieces broke off where the warping was worst. I was able to finally get the medallion out, and the heat exchangers, and then clean it as per the instructions. It needed it for sure!
However, now it won't light. I turn it on in room temp mode, but the ignitor light doesn't come on, and the feed motor light doesnt come on. Same issue in test mode.
What would yall guess, motherboard?
Eventually status light blinks five times, showing it failed to light in whatever their time frame is.
Hate to pay someone to come out here to fix it, as the trip charge out here is nuts, and I doubt they would have the parts on board, so likely have to pay AGAIN. Ugh...

Definitely a vacuum issue. Did you replace the medallion? From all the hammering to get the medallion out you may have knocked a bunch of ash down out of your liner and it is blocking the exhaust outlet. Run your shop vac hose up the square opening above the comb. blower that is where the ash would fall into, there is a cavity at the top of that tube that houses the esp probe and the liner exits right there. That would be my best guess as long as fan is running like Mt Bob said.
