Since I tried to hijack another thread , I thought I would start my own and see what you guys think. My stove started doing this. Immediately after the pellets light, the auger runs nonstop and pushes the fire and pellets out of the burn pot and into the ash pan. I immediately thought air flow problem. What is interesting is if I stop the flow of pellets, let it catch up and heat up and then resume it, it runs perfectly. If I shut it down and start it cold, we do it all over again. Needless, to say, I don't really trust it currently. I just cleaned it last Saturday, including the stove pipe, and it ran fine until Wednesday. ESP problems?
