Why does my pellet stove shut down after 5 minutes of starting it?

    Not the low limit switch but a blower motor that sticks. Somehow the second time i press the start button it frees, I saw the motor wasn't moving when I was trying to figure what was wrong. The stuck motor don't start the auger as it is supposed to. That is why the auger didn't turn the first time I press start. Waiting now for a new motor in the mail.

    You should pull the auger cover and make sure there isn't anything binding in there. I've seen nuts, bolts, nails and plastic stuck in there.
