From Traeger:
"Why won't my Grill Ignite?

  1. If your grill is plugged into an electrical outlet with a GFI (ground fault interrupter) plug, chances are the hot rod has absorbed or been exposed to too much moisture and is leaking to ground causing the plug to trip.
  2. Open your cooking chamber lid, remove cooking grill, angled drip pan and U-shaped firepot cover. Is there ash build up in the firepot and/or around the firepot? If so, this needs to be cleaned out. The ash is choking out the fire.
  3. Check the fuse on the back of the control board. To do this, first UNPLUG the grill from the electrical outlet. Then, unscrew the control board and look at the fuse-is it blown or not?
  4. If the fuse is good, check for power by switching the colored plugs first. Unplug the purple plug and the orange plug. Plug the purple plug into the orange plug. Now plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the grill on. Does the induction fan operate? If so, you will need a new hot rod and fuse. If not, you will need a new control board. Unplug the purple from the orange and reconnect the plugs together to their correct color plug.
  5. Always start your grill on the SMOKE setting.

Why is my pellet stove blowing fuse when plugged in

There can be several reasons. It would help me to know what make and model, but heres a start.....1} Make sure your using the correct fuse.2} Look for any debris or items which have entered the unit that could be shorting out the circuit. Also look for loose connections or wire spades that have come loose and shorted 3} Next see if the combustion and convection blower is turning freely. They should spin with ease. If in doubt, make a test cord from an old extension cord and try the blower directly by DISCONECTING it from the stove wiring and hooking the test cord to it then plug into a power strip carefully.4} Check the auger... Can you wiggle it around with your hand? If so then use the test cord in the same fashion as the blower. Augers tend to jam up and that can blow the fuse depending on the make of stove. 5} Look at the igniter and wire to assure that it is in visibly good condition. These are some good places to start. If none of these are help, it may be worth while to call a repair tech or manufacture help line. Be prepared for a long hold if you call during peak winter season. Good luck.

My Traeger (BBQ070) will feed the pellets, but there is no ignition to burn the pellets.

Be sure check the fuse behind the control board when pellets auger in but do not ignite.

Harman P68 pellet stove glass fuse blows after 1 minute.

You can do some troubleshooting by looking at the glass fuse after it has failed. If the element looks melted and there is no other discoloration, then the fuse probably blew as a result of an overload somewhere. If the fuse is burned black, then it's probably a short in the system.

You can meter the motors to see if they are shorted anywhere or open.

It sounds like you may be correct about the circuit board.
