Ah the P38 my nemesis - a total POS but you can make it function. I know I have one (P38+). Firstly, are the leads to the new ESP red or black and are they the same color as the one you replaced? Two different thermocouples and no I have never cleaned the thermocouple with glass cleaner - ever - I really can't follow that one - but the exhaust channel needs to be clean obviously. I can give you chapter and verse on this stove series but let's keep it simple and that way my ulcer medication won't have to be renewed. From your response I can estimate if you blew the main board which I don't think you did. Anyway welcome to our little board and we will try to help you. The circuitry is similar to the DVC which is a coal stove but I think I have mine tamed after 5 faultless years, now even as I uninstall it for other reasons. I have been infected with the base burner virus which you don't have to know or care about but is the only reason I switched stoves (it's a silly coal board thing). When that little stove of yours is crankin' with good pellets (and that is really the trick) it can really spew out some heat. So let's get this resolved for you. LOL.
