Vacuum Switch- Pelpro/Glowboy/Cheap/Charlie- Replaces KS-5090-1300

This metal vacuum switch fits all Pelpro/Glowboy/Cheap Charlie pellet stoves. Replaces KS-5090-1300. Note: The mounting may differ for the switch that comes with your stove. You may have to drill new holes to mount this vacuum switch.

Pressure adjustment range from 0.12 to 5.0 WC should be set to .15 for most pellet stoves so use the lowest setting on this switch.

The vacuum  switch is a safety switch that shuts the pellet stove down if the combustion (Exhaust) blower fails. If your pellet stove starts up then stops feeding pellets after the start cycle is over, then the vacuum switch is bad or the vacuum line is clogged with ash.  Also, if the auger motor does not turn you may have a bad vacuum switch.
