Thanks to everybody that answered my convection blower problem my Quad 1000, though 20 years old, runs like new. However, with 'new' operation, comes a new problem. Every once in a while in the past the pot fills with pellets and won't light. Now it seems to occur about 80% of the time when the stove kicks off (it's on a thermostat), then kicks back on after a short period of time (5 min?). If the stove starts 'cold' or after an extended break, the stove ignites properly pretty much 100% of time. I THINK the thermocouple is properly set in the pot (about 1" in as far as I can tell). The thermocouple tip is touching the ceramic sleeve. The stove is clean and the heat transfer vanes are brushed off both up top, and in the back behind the plating. The only thing I can think of is that auger won't shut off on startup after dispensing pellets because the unit thinks it's still hot and fire is present. The auger just keeps dishing it out. Any thoughts?
