My thought on this is; even it were open, with the cap down air should not be getting into the firebox.  On my 1400 I have a squirrel cage blower attached to the solenoid box.  When the fire star indicates the need for a fire, it turns on the blower and opens the solenoid to allow air into the firebox.  I'm thinking (and I usually get trouble when I do) that even if the door to the solenoid box is closed, as long as the cap on the elbow is open it's allowing passive air to enter the solenoid box through the blower opening.  Granted it'll take longer for the fire to get going but once it starts there's no stopping it as long as the air is allowed to enter the solenoid box.  That's my $0.02.  Roger

Roger you are correct that's exactly what was happening. Passive air can flow through even without the squirrel cage spinning.

Did you ever find a fix for this issue or the breaker tripping.  I have had the exact same problem with a 2012 Eclassic 1400.  As soon as firestar controller powers on the breaker trips, I unplugged solenoids one at a time, turning power back on each time til I found the problem to be the secondary high solenoid on my unit.  As long as that solenoid is unplugged everything works.  I tried replacing the solenoid with a spare I had on hand and same thing happened, tripped the breaker on the unit.  I consulted with my dealer and they seemed to think it was the firestar control panel gone bad (it had been through 6 seasons.  So I bought a new firestar II control panel from them, hooked it up, exact same thing happened, breaker tripped as long as that solenoid was connected.  I should also mention that when my problem first began that solenoid was chattering, opening and closing so fast that it was like a rattle, so the lid wasn't stuck with cresote.  On a positive note, I have had the unit running with that solenoid disconnected for 2 weeks and everything is functioning fine, normal burn times, reaction chamber is hitting 1200 degrees, etc.

I used a graphite lube on the arm after I cleaned it with a brake clean and it helped mine. The lube dries so it doesn't collect dust or debris. It also looks like you are getting a bunch of moisture in your burns with the liquid marks on the elbow. I get some buildup on the inside lip but is minor and has never caused a boil over.  Have you checked that elbow for buildup and do you have a bunch of creosote in it? I changed my burn splits to 192-172, 20 degree diff and it cut creosote to almost nil. I have not had my solenoid stick since then. In watching my firestar graphs if I am not getting at least 1150 degrees I know there is an issue. Wetter wood, solenoid not operating, plugged elbow, etc.

Holder are you confident the replacement solenoid you installed was new and that it is a good solenoid? Could you ohm in out with a multimeter?
