automan, sounds like ours are the same. Do you have any problem with the temp rising with the door like that? I do not have any with mine, and it makes sense if the door is slightly pulled away, no chance of it getting "glued" to the tube.

I might put a little spot weld on the draft tube and grind it to the right height. That will get rid of the paper clip for a more permenant repair.

Well, I lost another Love controller today. Got home last night, found controller readout dark and the the damper door open. I think I'm going to sink a ground rod and bond all the parts to the frame. Very strange..............

Great pics Chicken farmer.

Did you get that controller straightened out?

Wondering if I should buy one as a back up?

I haven't had a chance to sink a ground rod yet. The auto industry is running flat out right now, and it takes most of my spare time. Ridgewood sent a replacement out that day. Those guys are awesome. When I lost the first controller, they sent one out. When I went to change it, I found some loose wiring. I've seen loose wiring do some wierd stuff on controls. I swapped in the new controller and put the old controller on the shelf, just in case. So, now this time when the controller went dead, I had that other suspect controller on the shelf. So, I swapped it in just to check it out. And it worked!! And it's still working!! Ridgewood sent me a new controller so I have a spare on the shelf. I really need to get that ground rod in..............
