Customer Question
My breckwell pellet stove...

My breckwell pellet stove starts fine, the fan comes on and after about 1/2 an hour the fan stops blowing and eventually the stove shuts down

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Last few times we have tried to use it

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If possible

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

We turned the feed down from 2 to 1 and then it happened within about a minute. Don't know if that just happened by itself. Hit off button and blower fan finally came back on about 10 minutes later and is cooling now

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of the appliance? And has it done this before?

Breckwell P23 , third time

Greetings, click here for the manual please. see pages 20-23 for cleaning and trouble shooting... after you have cleaned the stove, get back to me with any questions you have regarding trouble shooting... I will go over any problems with you in detail.

So far I suspect a bad printed circuit board, 60% chance .... trouble shooting will need to be done to get any closer than that.

.

Important note about RATING my work:

I am a retired mechanical engineer and HVAC/electrical/ refrigeration and boiler contractor... with 56 years in this business. The last 20 of those years consulting for major firms nationally..

.

All I ask is please select the***RATING LINK***at the top of your page, that is the only way I am credited through the site. Rating does not affect your charges nor ability to refund if not satisfied.

.

If you need to be coached through a full diagnosis/repair,and wiring etc. for up to two days, and wish to be trained to use test instruments...... that goes well beyond' Just a simple Answer' of course, and goes beyond what most other experts here offer.....rate my simple answer so far positively.. and I will deliver that training and coaching to you All on the same dime so to speak.

.

Lacking a positive rating I can spend days helping a person at my own expense and loose my shirt,shorts and socks on the deal.

.

Attach a close up photo of the wiring diagram glued to the inside of the blower access door and I will mark it up with troubleshooting instructions then follow up with step by step training and coaching until you have a solution.

.

Photo must be exceedingly well focused. Use the 'add files' link next to your send button to get the photo to me.

.

Phone call offers:

If you wish to accept the companies $25 phone call offer,if indeed they send you one, this will go a *lot faster, but it IS 100% optional... or we can continue here in this dialog box at no additional charge.
