Assembly Instructions For Breckwell Pellet Stove Air Pressure Vacuum Switch, 80549

To replace the pressure switch:

  1. Unplug the unit
  2. Remove service panel

  4. Remove mounting screws
  5. Install new switch in the same position as the old switch
  6. Connect vacuum hose to gray side of the switch
  7. Connect the wires to either terminal


When your stove acts out of the ordinary, the first reaction is to call for help. This guide may save time and money by enabling you to solve simple problems yourself. Problems encountered are often the result of only five factors:

  1. poor fuel
  2. poor operation or maintenance
  3. poor installation
  4. component failure
  5. factory defect

You can usually solve those problems related to 1 and 2 by cleaning the stove and/or opening up the slide damper in the unit.

NOTE: Some Breckwell pellet stoves have a small access cover located inside the firebox on the upper left-hand side which is held in by a 3/8" hex screw. Not all models have this. If your model does have this, remove the cover and clean the area above it, this will ALWAYS throw a #2 error if the area is dirty and it is often overlooked as it is not anywhere in the owner's manuals.


IF STOVE SHUTS OFF AND THE # 2 LIGHT FLASHES... Possible Causes/ Possible Remedies

  • Airflow switch hose or stove attachment pipes for hose are blocked. Unhook air hose from the air switch and blow through it. If air flows freely, the hose and tube are fine. If air will not flow throw the hose, use a wire coat hanger to clear the blockage.
  • The air inlet, burnpot, interior combustion air chambers, combustion blower, or exhaust pipe are blocked with ash or foreign material. Follow all cleaning procedures in the maintenance section of the owner’s manual.
  • The firebox is not properly sealed. Make sure the door is closed and that the gasket is in good shape. If the ash door has a latch, make sure the ash door is properly latched and the gasket is sealing good. If the stove has just a small hole for the ashes to fall through under the burnpot, make sure the slider plate is in place to seal off the firebox floor.
  • Vent pipe is incorrectly installed. Check to make sure vent pipe installation meets criteria in owner’s manual.
  • The airflow switch wire connections are bad. Check the connectors that attach the gray wires to the air switch.
  • The gray wires are pulled loose at the Molex connector on the wiring harness. Check to see if the gray wires are loose at the Molex connector.
  • Combustion blower failure. With the stove on, check to see if the combustion blower is running. If it is not, you will need to check for power going to the combustion blower. It should be a full current. If there is power, the blower is bad. If there is not, see next item.
  • Control board not sending power to combustion blower. If there is no current going to the combustion blower, check all wire connections. If all wires are properly connected, you have a bad control board.
  • Control board not sending power to air switch. There should be a 5-volt current (approximately) going to the air switch after the stove has been on for 30 seconds.
  • Air switch has failed (very rare). To test the air switch, you will need to disconnect the air hose from the body of the stove. With the other end still attached to the air switch, very gently suck on the loose end of the hose (you may want to remove the hose entirely off the stove and the air switch first and make sure it is clear). If you hear a click, the air switch is working. BE CAREFUL TOO MUCH VACUUM CAN DAMAGE THE AIR SWITCH.

NOTE: Breckwell stoves have been in existence since the beginning days of the industry. Some stoves or inserts may not have a digital control and will need to be troubleshooted by a professional.
