I have had it happen before. Mine did it when I finished cooking and raised my temp to 400-ish to "burn-off" /crystalize the remaining grease on diffuser.
Simply, turn unit on and push prime button to force more fresh pellets thru the system.
Let burn normal for a few minutes.
Then power off and start the shut-down process again.
