Hamer's Hot Ones pellets.
Alexander's Lawn & Garden on rt. 273, Newark, Delaware: $289 per ton
Backyard Fun Store on rt40 in Bear, Delaware:...
Just another follow up. After a week or more of 70 degree temps and windows open the weather turned cold again. I got the new vacuum switch hooked up...
Did your old vacuum switch look like this?
I am in Northern Delaware.
I prefer Hamer's Hot Ones over all other pellets.
For reference: a ton of Hamer's in "our area" is currently $285...
As the stove is currently burning off the rest of the pellets in the hopper I won't be doing dollar bill test today.
I was told buy the...
Yep. My exhaust fan spins real free.
Before the winter this year I removed exhaust pipe and cleaned it. I also did vacuum down in that portion of...

I've pulled that...
I believe you were answering it while I was posting a response to somebody else.
Thanks. The sucking question has been answered.
I tip my glass to you all.
And yes I do have to pull stove out. It's a fireplace insert.
Sucking will wait until tomorrow. I have more...
Yes - aside from pulling the auger housing off and cleaning that part of the stove (can that even be done?) I fully cleaned the stove prior to this...
Auger has pellets, and hopper is not empty.
When I jumper the vacuum switch the auger instantly turned and dropped pellets into fire pot.
I completely removed hose. Blew through it. Then I attached hose to nipple on auger housing and blew through it. I also used a piece of thin wire and...
So how much vacuum should be getting pulled through that hose?
Should I be able to hear the vacuum if I unplug the hose where it enters auger...
Yes. I blew. It wasn't clogged.
The second I bypassed that metallic "vacuum box" and turned the stove on the auger kicked right into life.
