Stove Saftey Switch Shutting Down Stove

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

Shut it down and check to make sure you got everything. Did you clean out the flue pipe going from the stove to the power venter? Did you clean out the power venter? Did you clean the C-channels along the back of the burn chamber wall (if they are there)?

Sounds like there is still a blockage in the stove, flue, or power venter still.

As Paul said you still have some issue, best way to trouble shoot is to measure the draft. Do you have access to a manometer or draft gauge? One other thing to try is to place the inlet of the vacuum directly over the tube of the safety switch inside the stove, this will pull out any obstruction that is preventing the cool air from outside being pulled in past the snap switch.
