Model number is ***** It does not have an exhaust fan. Exhaust vents straight up thru flu. I found manual and I need to test voltage output at hydro generator or at least remove it and check for blockages .

Yes if it does not kick on at all the generator may be stuck and not seeing water flow through the unit can you check that first?
