This is a continuing story of two people, four dogs, three barn cats, 8 pet turkeys, 6 guinea fowl, 20 ducks, 125 chickens, 1 rabbit, 5 alpacas, 4 sheep, a Llama, A Sicilian Micro-mini donkey, a Sicilian mini donkey and her baby and their life long dream to run a little 9 acre farm in upstate New York. After you read the blog entries, go to our regular farm web site, and then to our wonderful farm and fiber Shop that we built and opened in 2011. The links are on the left.
Step one of the testing Failed and Motor #3 is on the Way…
The pellet stove ran for a half hour wonderfully, and then I increased the auger speed to take the heat output to high. Within forty-five seconds, the motor tripped out on a thermal overload. I knew for sure, because I installed temporary leads to the outside of the furnace/fireplace insert so I could read if there was voltage present when the motor stopped. There was in fact voltage to the motor when the thermal kick-out occurred.
I called CSH Electric Motor Supply Co. and they immediately sent out another replacement motor and apologized for all of our inconvenience with two defective motors.
And now we wait again…
Though we are saving pellets…we are burning fuel oil…not a good situation with the cost of oil, however CSH impresses me with their customer care policies.
