Customer Question
My breckwell stove p23...

My breckwell stove p23 keeps filling the burn pot and over fills. I then have excessive heat. Why does this happen and how can I fix it. I replaced both thermodisks and the auger motor but it didn't fix it. I need help.

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

Since winter started.

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

Yes

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

No I explained it all. thanks. My wife and I are on a fixed income and this has come at a very bad time. Propane is very expensive and we can't keep using it. We need help.
