    I recently did my major cleaning before it gets cold enough to use my pellet stove but when I had the exhaust fan off I blew air into the hole where the vacuum tube goes to the vacuum switch and am pretty sure I blew something open that isn't currently closing. I can take the hose line off and it didn't get a hole or anything because I can blow through it and feel air on the other side but the vacuum switch isn't letting my auger turn at the moment. I can wire it directly to itself and then it turns so I know the issue is in the switch. I haven't even looked at dissembling the switch yet but I think that's my next plan of attack, is there something inside it then can "fixed"?

    Sounds like the bladder has been blown apart. I have never seen any replacement bladders for sale so unless you can make one, I would say no it can’t be fixed.
