Re: stove exhaust fan's cover is stuck, so it's clogged...
Best way is a butter knife ...you run it alongthe out side edge. the cover can be pried and bowed out a little with out bending it. Once out soak in hot water with dawn dish soap to clean all parts...(not the filter)

E805The stoppage of the exhaust fan is detected, or a failure in rotation of the fan is detected. (iR/GP400 or later machines)The detail code, which can be checked with DISPLAY,
You can try to clean up the fan
With the stove off, remove the back wall cover for the fan. Remove fan, clean and lubricate, if needed. Install fan after cleaning. Bend back wall cover so that it is bowed away from fan, if needed. and install.
Which pellet stove do you have? A lot of pellet stoves have a part inside called a Draft Flow Switch the size of your palm and hook to the Draft Flow Switch is a Draft silicone hose and this will get clogged with debris you will need to look at your diagram to see if you have that on your stove. If you do you will need to "gingerly take off the hose and blow through it. and re connected to the draft flow Switch. After sometime the hoses become brittle. Another thing to look at is the exhaust at the back of the stove cleaned out and you are getting your pellet stove cleaned out by a chimney sweep.
It might take some work, but you should be able to get at the exhaust vent by removing the grill, light fixture and fan. Might be best to try and find where it is vented to, hopefully an outside area.
If you can, there are some small over the counter type of things you can use to try and clean the vent. One is a window brush that is on a long pole, found in the window cleaning area of the Home Depot. This is a soft brush that will not damage (famous last words) the exhaust vent.
There is also a flapper door of sorts that closes at the fan when the fan is not running. Might be that the flapper is stuck in the closed position.
The fan that pulls the hot air through the dryer and pushes the exhaust out through the vent hose is plugged with lint. You will want to remove the cover on the fan and manually clean the fan out. I had the same problem with my dryer, I was astounded by the amount of lint that was trapped in the fan.
Also look inside the cloths drum on the back wall and make certain the hole in that wall are not clogged with lint also. Use a flash light and make sure the hole are perfectly clean.
Good luck, clean it all out and let me know.
usually, by the time that a large clog has built up in the narrow neck behind the brushes,
that is easy to find when the cover plate is removed,
some has also got into the fan impeller,
not so easy to see
and restricts suction
the fan housing is held on the front of the fan & motor with clips, it disassembles easily and the lint and such can be flicked out of the impeller
then the exhaust of the motor to the bag can be likewise cleaned
You said, your not heating also exhaust fan on dryer is not working screen show a
problem has been detected with the model selection connection
Sometimes this can happen when the vent line is clogged.
1. Check if the lint filter is full and needs to be cleaned.
Try this first.
2. Then check if the outside screen covering the exhaust vent if this is even half blocked
with lint there will be no heat! This screen is to keep small animals out!
Try checking this and if it is clogged or the spring loaded door is stuck closed.
Try to clean the lint out of the corners of the flap door,
and or remove the screen permanently!
NO ANIMALS LIKE TO GET BURNT,IT'S HOT IN THAT TUBE! They sense this and stay clear.
It is 2 years that mine is off and all is fine. Let me know how it goes!
Bless You huuum PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!
because the motor that turns the drum is also the motor that turns the fan blade to blow the air.
open the rear portion of the dryer and you can find the fan blade, made of plastic, being covered by the vertical duct that came from the drum. then the outlet of the fan assembly goes out to the exhaust of the dryer.
another could be problem would be a clogged exhaust duct. check the exhaust duct or the hoce that is attached to it. see to it that it is clean and no blockade.
