Stove suddenly stopped working

PostBy: tahoe On: Tue Mar 04, 2008 8:18 pm

We own an Alaska Channing III which is directly vented because we do not have a chimney. this evening the whole motor/blower stopped running. We checked the power supply and it was not that. Does anyone have any idea why it would just quit?

Is it getting power? Is there a reset button? (If not, it's your blower motor)

Tahoe,
Check your WMO-1 safety switch. If your pipes are dirty or your venter hasn't been cleaned it awhile, then that's the problem.

Just checked the WMO-1 switch, we seem to have power now. Thanks for suggesting it. We'll see if it keeps running.

Have you cleaned the direct vent fan/motor assembly and the flue/exhaust pipe lately??? When these get clogged with flyash, then the WMO-1 switch will open and shut the stove down to prevent Carbon Monoxide from being forced into the living space..
