    Hello, I've got a 1992 Austroflamm Integra that I've had for about 3 years. I can't get the combustion fan to start. I've checked the low limit switch with a lighter until it clicked and the convection fan came on. The auger motor turns and drops pellets also. I don't think its the control board, but It could be. I don't know what else to do to get the combustion fan to work. Has anyone else had this problem and if so, how did you resolve it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Don

    Common causes: the motor may be "stuck" and needs a nudge to free it up. The vacuum switch could be open, for sundry reasons. A wire could be disconnected.
    More info may help. Was the stove run recently?

    The fan spins freely, but the stove hasn't been run in over a year due to work taking up a lot of my time. So I wasn't able to fix it then. I don't know where the vacuum switch is on my stove. The stove was working fine, then one day there was no air movement when I went to start the fire. I'm going to take the fan to work and the guys there are going to help me check it to make sure it works.

    Here's an update... I sent the circuit board off to be checked and it came back good. I've checked both the combustion and convection fans, they both work. With the circuit board out, I ran power to the combustion fan from where all the wiring comes together and it worked fine. So I think my problem is there isn't any power getting to the fan. I called a local pellet stove tech and since my stove is a '92, he doesn't want to work on it. Anyone have any ideas? I may just have to sell this for scrap and wait till next year and get another, newer stove. Thanks

    Thanks for the help, I've decided to give up and part this one out. At least the parts that work can possibly help someone else out. I'm going to get a new stove in a couple of months. Thanks again!
