Hi there. I have a Mt Vernon (2005?) non AE quadrafire that was working perfectly for 2-3 months (bought used) and all of a sudden the auger will not feed.
Everything else on the stove appears to be working perfectly. The therm is calling for heat (red light in rear is on), the firepot will fire when I throw pellets in the pot manually, all of the blowers work, etc.
For some reason the auger just will not move. So far I have:
Verified the fuse is good
Verified the unit starts up normally and will fire
Removed the entire auger and vacuumed out the auger "chamber"
Checked the vacuum tube and cleaned out for blockage
Removed the square cleanout inside the stove on the right side (near the blower?) and vacuumed out a small pile of ash that was in there.
Checked out the computer board for lights... Blinks blue a few times at power up, then no lights come (red or blue) on after that.
I am struggling for ideas here. I read somewhere to check the snap discs? I was curious if anyone could help describe how to check these and maybe if they can be ohm'd out, etc? What exactly are these? Temp sensitive switches?
Your help is greatly appreciated.
