Harman Accentra 2 F.S. Pellet stove Keeps blowing fuses ? Help

Posted by dcher (My Page) on

My 5-6 year old Harman Accentra 2 stopped feeding pellets for about 1 hour ( When it was calling for Pellets) and fire was going out even though the temperature was calling for fire.

Unplugged stove in hopes of resetting computer
When plugged back in the feed light lit and auger started but then fuse blew and everything shut off :-(

Replaced 6 Amp fuse and it does the same exact thing auger starts and fuse blows ...

Thinking possible Auger Motor problem ...

It is Palm Sunday and no one is answering their phones to fix it and we are supposed to be getting a snow storm here in PA. tonight and tomorrow So who knows if & when I will be able to get the 1 and only Harman dealer out to look at it.

Was working perfectly fine until this happened
Any and all help and/ or suggestions would be greatly appreciated... as it is getting cold in here already
Thanks

I had a similar problem with my pellet stove from Quadra-fire. So I called them up and the guy said that I need to turn it off long enough for it too cool down, give it a good clean out because there could be some residue, ash or build up that is getting in the way for the system to work properly. He used some other fancy words but what I heard was that it needs to be thoroughly cleaned at least every year and I haven't done that in two winters. Hope this helps and good luck!
