    I have a new Englander pellet stove bought in Sept 2017.This is the first season it has been run.I am having to replace the vacuum hose every other week because it dries out /and or cracks .I contacted Englander and they suggested putting a clamp on both ends of the hose because I kept getting an E1 code.So the stove runs better doing that but I'm going through hose like I have stock in the company.Any suggestions from experienced people out there??

    There is special hose . You need vacuum plus heat resistant hose. try googling it or maybe Grainagers or other parts supply places .

    You may be getting bad hoses from Englander, Do what Rona suggested.

    Try a automotive vacuum hose.. If you can find it go with a silicone hose... Above post may be right and the manufacturer got a bad run of hoses

    Knowing nothing about this particular stove may I add my two cents worth ?

    While admiting the possibility that the suppy of vacuum tubes is duff, is it not more likely that the environment is more hostile than planned for ? Should the tubes be exposed to serious heat ?
    I would presume that a fault in the switch would cause ambient air flowing in the tube , not flue air , so it can't be that . I would check that the flue air temperature is within the expected limits , and that anything else which could be a source of unduly radiant heat is not . Also , if the area concerned was designed to be ventilated that the appropriate holes are not blocked.

    I’m with this guy. It sounds like your leaking a lot of heat to the area where your vacuum line comes in.
