Lopi Pioneer Pellet stove - need help

Posted by mikus29 (My Page) on

My lopi stove blew its fuse and caused the home circuit breaker to open as well. I replaced the fuse and reset the breaker. Plugged the stove back in and the control panel has no power(or anywhere else that I can tell).

I tried a different outlet with verified power, also.

Can anyone help me figure out what to look at next? Could a power surge have fried the control panel before the fuse did its job? Is there some other sacrificial component within the stove I should check? Is there a reset procedure not found in the owners manual?

I've combed the owners manual and can find no reference to a second fuse or other electrical protection features.

It's getting a bit chilly with just cheap electric heater fans going.... brrr...

Problem solved. There is a fuse on the control panel that is not listed in the owners manual. After finding and replacing that fuse and dismantling the feed screw in the hopper, the stove is now operating normally. It must have been an obstruction binding up the the pellet feed screw, causing an electrical overload.
