Shut down this late AM to do a good weekly cleaning, temps are supposed to be in the single digits here at night this week so wanted to be sure I'm real ready.
Went to fire back up and...opps... didn't have any pellets, just pellets and corn mixed. So I put that in the firepot a little firestarter jell, lit and turned the stove on. Didn't want to start, got out propane torch, got it going (I thought), goes out again, again the torch, after several attempts it is blazing nicely, sat down in the dining room next to the living room where the stove is and I hear the stove do something I've never heard, complete shut down.
Run over with the torch, open door, look at control board E-3 error code. Once I torched it again it flamed, hit the ON button and away it went no problems.
Looking up the E-3 several things could have caused it, the stove "timed out" the board didn't see a temp of 110* within a certain amount of time and for safety it shut down!
Good to know that it does what it was designed to do.
