    Good Afternoon All :)



    I need grease for the auger motor bearing on the 25PDVC



    -grease type recommendations/requirements??

    -does a normal grease gun with a standard fitting work??

    -Is there a procedure or is it just attach gun and squirt until it ooozes??



    Thanks for the recommendations!!!

    Ken


    Am also getting some dry moly spray for the auger tube/chutes and to spray the combustion fan blades. :)

    just squirt it in. How old is your unit? I have been known to pull it apart and clean in there too. You can use that dry molly on your whole stove, it shines shoes and tastes great with eggs according to Don.

    hey ken,

    the bearings we use in that stove are a "stock" pillow block bearing , and yes they have a zerk fitting for greasing, but the low rpm rotation of the bearing means it really does not need greased. we leave the zerks in basically to keep the dust out.

    what i do when i work on refurbs if the bearings are stiff in their "wobbling" function i take the bearing out of the block and clean it out well then just apply a little dry graphite to the outer race of the bearing then reinsert it into the pillow block. (the bearings are not pressed into the block), if you take the bearing off the auger shaft look on the inside of it where it would normally face the front of the stove , there are 2 recesses in the block, rotate the bearing 90 degrees from the block then turn it to where the bearing lines up with these recesses and the bearing slips right out of the block

    Hello

    I have reburbished some real old rusty ones like the ones Mike throws away. :)

    Here is what I do.

    This stove had dirty augers with pokey little auger burrs, black carbon on the bottom auger, and dirty auger chutes.

    Just from sitting in a damp garage, the exhaust blower housing was extremely rusted!
    See > http://www.hearth.com/talk/threads/...-blower-exhuastion-and-a-little-rusty.108195/

    After some Satin Black paint and a new room blower, the stove would not even fire up because the ignitor was WAY out of alignment
