I am trying to help a family member with their gas fireplace...
The unit litghts fine, but within 20 secs of switching the fan on, it shuts down. I had NO tools with me... couldn't even remove a panel. I am thinking that it could be the hi-limit that I can see near the blower, but couldn't get to it to jump it out and test that theory. I find it hard to believe that there would be some kind of overcurrent protection that the fan could be tripping, but I am stumped. Could it be anything besides that hi-limit?
