    Mt. Vernon AE Moisture in Flue

    Was on a call yesterday clean and inspect issues with convection blower jam or some error code on menu prompts at thermostat. Did the clean removed exhaust

    motor and moist soot/mud looking stuff was inside. looked at the cap little hood type with concrete sloped sealed with no signs of leaks. It did rain heavily the last

    weekend but have never seen moisture in the exhaust compartment before. Cleaned out as much as possible buttoned it up, unit ran fine. Been running into

    serveral pellet inserts that haven't had service for 4-5 years and its the pits. Takes longer to clean, usually problems with fans/ignitor/thermocouple, bad news all

    coupled with some expensive conversations. Was wondering if you guy come across moisture in the flue on pellets much and what would you to reccommended

    preventative action safeguarding the electronics?
