New to the forum been a service tech in the hearth industry for around 3 years and the hvac industry for 12 years before that. I am now the owner of a Harman PC45 pellet stove installed a gas stove for a customer and was told that if i wanted it to put it in the trailer and was told that it did not work. While removing the pellet stove i found that the 3 inch exhaust pipe on it was choked down to about a 1 inch diameter with soot. Got it home and into the shop plugged it in and it took right off and lit right up without any exhaust pipe, so guessing the problem was the choked off exhaust pipe and needing a very thorough once over as far as i can tell for now. The questions that i have for now are 1. How old is this stove it has the black door with a wooden handle serial number of 004438 test date of 1998 2. Is the draft inducer supposed to run continuosly once plugged in or does it just go through a test procedure once plugged in only had it plugged in for a few minutes and it had started to burn right away and didnt want to smoke myself out of the shop so i unplugged it.
