1.5 RPM Vogelsang 5770/ 5790 Auger Motor (hole in shaft): 80488 - CW from rear- 2 male clips- OEM #USS80488

1.5 RPM Auger Motor with hole in shaft for Vogelsang VG577/ VG5790. Replaces part # 80488. 84415. Shaft turns clockwise looking at the pellet stove from the rear. OEM.

The auger motor turns the auger, which transfers the pellets from the hopper to the burn pot. It feeds the fire and keeps the flame going. The auger motor must be replaced if it slows down or skips under a load (gears are stripped in the gear box when turning the auger.) See below for compatible models and specifications. In older stove models the auger may stop when the stove gets hot. This may mean the auger motor needs replacing. Please consult a professional in your area to determine that this is the issue. 

A hitch (cotter) pin is need to attach the auger to the auger motor. Click here to view:

These Motors are set up for counter clockwise rotation (most pellet stoves use this setting) looking from rear. The rotation can be reversed if needed.
