Help! Over heating coal-trol.

PostBy: molson4725 On: Tue Mar 15, 2011 7:50 pm

Stove was burning fine all day. I Went down the basement to grab something and smelled something like plastic burning. Stove has been running like a charm all winter. Went over to the stove and couldn't smell anything. Picked up the lid to the hopper and smelled the plastic burning. Was a little confused. Checked the stove over and couldnt find anything. All fans and motors running normal. Put my hand on the coal-trol box mounted to the hopper and it was extremely hot. Also noticed that the cap that holds the fuse in was melted to the fuse! Any idea what could be going on here? Had to shut it down of course. My dealer is closed through march so I guess I will try calling Matt or Dave at Leisure Line tomorrow. Waiting for her to cool down so I can get at that box and maybe take it off. I did try to pull the fuse out and its stuck.molson4725
