I think I can offer a reason why the re-ignite burner only runs for 20 seconds.  I have an early 2300 dual fuel model.  What you describe sounds like the pre-ignition fan running to clear gas and smoke out of the firebox.  If I remember correctly here is what happens:
You push the propane ignite button and a fan comes on and stays on 20-30 seconds (I forget) then if you stand right next to the propane tank regulator you should hear a soft click and the sound of propane going thru the regulator.  In 2 seconds you should hear a soft 'woomp' from the firebox as the propane lights.  Gas continues to run...   Unless, you have a gummed up propane jet.  Then, instead of the woomp you hear the gas run about 5 seconds and then the propane and fan shut down (you don't want propane going in if it does not ignite, right?).  That is what is happening to you.  So,  the solution is to pull the wires off the propane jet in the back, unscrew the 2 clamps around the rubber tube and gently pull the propane jet out (still connected to the propane tube).  Clean everything, the jet, the tube into the firebox, and especially clean the little wire ignition that sits in front of the jet.  That wire has to be clean or no spark.  Reassemble and try again and listen.  From now on use the jet cleaner wire brush from inside the firebox as in my previous posts to keep the little ignition wire clean.
Hope this helps.

No its the Propane Regulator they must have gotten water in it. there is a little pin hole on the side of it and sometime it gets water in there and the regulator thinks there to much presser and it stops working. Replace the regulator and that will fix your problem

I have an EClassic 2300 that I bought in 10/08 .  I had the typical learning curve but we are extremely happy with ours.  We had the fusion chamber thing replaced at no charge and we have the cracking in the air holes too.  I live in southern Mass so it can be somewhat temperate, but we burn all year long for hot water.  I found that loading the logs left to right instead of front to back was a huge change.  I no longer need the paper clip and the fire burns great.  We dont get bridging either.   Erik

What size logs, both length and diameter, are you burning.  I have had more bridging this year as I am using logs that are not split too fine.  tthis seems to happen more with 12-14" rounds that are split once - in half - so I'm throwing in a pretty large half-moon!  they're two years dry, and burn well, they just seem to bridge more often.
My father once said, "This is my son who wanted to grow up and become a doctor.  So far, he's only become a doctor."

They are just long enough to fit side to side in the firebox, so maybe 16-18".  I split alot of large logs so I don't have many half splits.  My wood is bordering on green, but i make sure to run with the damper open when it is above 35 degrees because it goes too long between cycles.  Smaller splits seem to work the best.
