    I pulled another bad auger motor out of a 25 PDV last night which was also a Merkle Korf marked int. duty.
    The motor was fried. This is motor # 5 for three different PDV`s that I have replaced or assisted with in the past 3 yrs since bought new. We do not replace with the MK`s from Englander after the orig`s go bad.
    Overall the three of us are still quite happy with the Englander and their service but it`s really strange they would use a motor not actually rated( cont. duty) for the job it has to do. This seems to be a common problem and most likely an easy fix but for some reason they aren`t going to address it.
