    Hello,

    I did not see a Vacuum Switch listed or fuses?


    I have >3 (total cost for all 3 -$75 total)aftermarket Fasco combustion motors -USA built + >1 (total cost $40)aftermarket Fasco convection motor -Mexico built

    >6 Comb gaskets( 3 direct fit +3 univ )

    >1 Low temp S. disc (all temp brand 110*F)

    >Door gasket +adhesive

    >Fuses >Some bypass jumpers


    For future purchases i would like to stock >1 - (2RPM CW )auger motor + 1- Versa grate motor( Non OEM aftermarket preferred )+ Vacuum sw assm.


    Knock on wood everthing works as it should (all still original except 1 Comb motor + 1 Conv motor replaced)


    Hey, Don2222 do you know any aftermarket replacement for a Versa grate motor? (OEM or non OEM) Presently it has a Merkle Korff (4506u1-012 .25amps) maybe you might know of a cross reference , it seems to be the only motor that i can`t find except private label (darn OEM ) aftermarket eludes me for some reason on this one. Maybe you might know? It`s not broke yet but a least i`ll have a # for future reference.
    Thanks

    I only have a sheet of gasket material.

    a fuse for the control board.

    an old combustion motor that I might be able to make work again.

    <----sadly not prepared

    Parts, why you guys got parts?

    Your dealer will just come and fix your busted stove in a blizzard, what's that you say, the last time it took a month just to get the part.

    I have two spare igniters, spare gasket material, a combustion blower, a convection blower, and fuses.

    This season I plan on adding an auger motor and controller.

    Carry on.

    One auger motor (I read here that this would be the most likely part to fail so I ordered the better one right away.)
    Complete gasket set so I can copy them.

    I need a few more items just to be prepared, ignitor, vacuum hose, fuses, convection blower, exhaust blower and whatever else I think of.

    Thank you, Don2222, for replying back
    I`ve seen that before.

    Just don`t see the $$$ value on that ,i`ll just keep fishing for one .


    I did contact Merkle Korff (Email) but to no avail. Just circling the wagons for the OEM i guess, but what else is new.

    The same reason i do not like to go to the local auto stealer for parts( i mean dealer) they rob you on the price.
    Better quality at aftermarket i feel also.

    Not if the stove is new enough to have the capacitor?

    I have 2 ignitors, a T/C, Door gasket, Ash pan gasket, and a Combustion blower for the Classic Bay.

    Door gasket, ash pan gasket, combustion blower, and exhaust manifold for the Fahrenheit.

    Ash pan gasket, Door gasket, Glass gasket, burn-pot (slightly bent and replaced when new), and convection blower (Siezed up/ oiled and tested after new one came and it worked. But for how long) for 10-CPM

    Door gasket and glass gasket for 30-NC

    I wont burn LP...... If something goes down, I am gonna fix it ASAP.
