Whitfield combustion blowers, also referred to as the exhaust fan or draft motor, pull air through the burnpot, up past the heat exchange tubes, forcing the exhaust out of the vent pipe. Keeping your stove and venting clean and free of ash blockages and heavy build-up will put less strain on the combustion blower allowing better performance and longevity. If you are noticing a lazy fire, vacuum switch tripping, or loud noises coming from the combustion blower, you should inspect and replace if needed.

There are several different OEM and aftermarket combustion blowers and exhaust motor kits available for Whitfield depending on the model. Be sure to cross-reference your part number or model when purchasing a replacement. There will be a round gasket that goes from the motor to the housing, and an oblong gasket that goes from the combustion blower housing to the stove manifold. It's important to inspect and replace these gaskets to ensure proper seal. Always make sure you use high temperature sealant around the adapter on the combustion blower that goes to your vent pipe; we always want to make sure there are no exhaust leaks.

If you are purchasing one of the combustion blower kits, please see our video below for an installation guide.

Whitfield convections fans, also referred to as the distribution blower or room-air fan, circulate air through the heat exchange tubes, dispersing the heat into your room. As the convection fan wears over time we will often notice less air coming out of the front of the stove, squealing or grinding when the fan is in operation, and/or our high limit switch tripping. It's important to clean your convection fan on a regular basis. Clean the dust and debris from the motor windings and the motor impeller wheel. Check the motor label, as some do require annual lubrication. When it comes time to replace your convection fan, follow along with our general guide video below.

The Whitfield auger feed motor is a 1 RPM clockwise (when facing shaft) gear motor. As this motor turns, the auger shaft delivers them up and drops the pellets down the chute into the burnpot. There are many safety switches in line with the auger motor such as the vacuum switch, high limit switch, and low limit switch depending on the Whitfield model. As auger motors get weak they will often make heavy noise in operation and will no longer have the torque to deliver fuel consistently. If your auger motor is not turning at all, you can test the motor to direct power to determine if it's the motor or one of the safety switches not allowing it to operate.

When it comes time to replace your auger motor follow along with our general installation guide video.
