In my case it is 8' from the ground and so no cap is indicated. So if you have a cap remove it and look inside. Of course, one weird idea is that it is near to the ground, has no cap and for some reason dirt has accumulated there blocking the air intake. weeds etc. been a weird summer. Well I think that was a summer, I was never quite sure. "Nil carborundum desparandum" - don't let the bastards grind you down.
Thanks. I store my chimney pipe in my shed for the summer and cap the vent housing. It's clean, no blockages. When installed its about a foot off the ground. Ive never had the bottom of the tee capped. Good idea....
At this point:
- Ive checked the pusher block assembly and it appears to function correctly
- Ive pulled the combustion motor, its clean and apparently spinning properly and it was seated
- Chamber from cumbustion motor to grates is clear
- other two motors are working fine.
- Put it in test mode, and good volumes of air are coming out of the chimney and the heat distribution vent into the house.
- No error lights on panel
- air out of grates is still suspect and the problem here.
Left to check is the intake pathways from outside.
I broke down and called my dealer; left message. For now Ill ask him for advice on the subject. If he complies, Ill take another stab at this. Hes been helpful in the past but if I fail to resolve Im going to have to call him in
