Harman super mag install today.
Install went well.
Started her up. Fine. Beautiful start...
Baro damper workin well.
Combustion fan quietly running.
Firebox temp rose, circulating fan kicks in as expected.
Hear auger faintly feeding coal. Slow push begins off the grates.
Out of nowhere. POOOOOF. Dead in the water.
Control board dead.
Fuse(6 amp glass) on circuit board toasted.
3 stores and radio shack later. New 6a fuse.
Dedicated outlet. Surge power strip. Plug in. Poof.
Fuse blows and breaker trips.
Replace fuse now with slow-blow 6a. Plug in to DIFFERENT circuit in house. Breaker trips on plug in.
Try ANOTHER receptacle. Same thing. Breaker trips AND a totally unrelated breaker trips.
Meanwhile fire smoking in box with no exhaust. Smoke trickling through stove into house. Huge exhaust fan on to outside now.
Tech supp has me direct wire the combustion fan. Clears smoke in box then I push the fire on grates into ash pan and abandon ship.
Stove shop says best they can do is send a "mechanic Monday"
930-430 day wasted today.
I have a $4k+ piece of iron art now.
Work full time. Don't have time for repeated service calls on a new stove.
My buddy who is a licensed electrician feels I sufficiently excluded a house power issue and suspects a "dead short" in the stove or it's circuit board.
Thx for listening...
