Hi folks. I have a 2011 Thelin Gnome pellet stone. Background is I bought it used last year. Worked great for my garage and only weird thing was that after it cooled down the fan did not auto shut off. I replaced the sensor but that did not change it.

Regardless I just let it cool and then shut it off manually.

This past weekend I ran it friday night. Went to bed with the wife under instructions to shut it off but .....I think a bit too much wine and I woke up to it still running with no fire and seemed fine. I shut it down.

Went out later in the day and now nothing happens when I turn it on. The board lights up and the feed system works but I am getting nothing out of the fan.,

The local repairman is booked thru Thanksgiving so just seeing if anyone has any experience with this or tips.

Scratch that. The feed system is not working either as well as the fan. The switch panel lights up

In my experience,most sit in the corner, look pretty and collect dust. Perhaps uses a few times a year. They are known for the motor going bad, and the control boards don't have the best reputation. Only things I can recommend is use the search box above, and also search the net.

Update. I decided to clean the stove out thoroughly and took it off the exhaust pipe. Plugged it back in and it worked. Great.....until it did not work again. Fan started slowing down a few hours into the burn and then it just went out again.

Have someone scheduled for a couple weeks but I guess I'm glad it seems like its not the circuit board. Maybe the motor? Any input is appreciated
