fume switch tripped??

PostBy: METLHED27 On: Tue Feb 04, 2014 5:48 pm

I cleaned my Keystoker 105 today and when I went to restart it, the startup produced a lot of smoke and my entire stove shut down. I'm assuming the fume switch tripped. When I pludg it in, nothing happens at all.I hope it's just that. Prior to shutting off, the vent motor was working so I 'm not sure why the stove started billowing smoke. Any ideas???

exhaust pipe clogged? Make sure you exhaust blower is working correctly.

Inside the stove, above the exhaust outlet is a hole where the fume switch inlet is. Make sure you vacuum that out before you reset it.

OK- Restarted stove and switch tripped again. I found the root cause. I had a blockage in my vent pipe at the bend in the pipe. Problem solved.
