Disclaimer - I am stupid. So don't do anything I say, you've been warned. So after my Harman squeal problem and the 10 different ways to deal with it, I was told. I tried many, and decided I would make a little guide to help others deal with it. This is just my opinion, and the sounds we all experience maybe different. It seemed like a lot of people AVOIDED finding the problem, if possible. Many had to turn to dealers or were under warranty. Some things people said caused the problem. Rubbing metal parts / rubbing fines. Full fine box / Fines getting jammed into places. Built up creosote at end of Auger/Chute. Bad motor / parts. Some cures people said: Mix graphite powder into unit / spray graphite powder Scrape end of auger area Replace motor / auger / bearing Vacuum fine box / lubricate inside Lubricate motor shaft Run the unit on HIGH for a extended time Vacuum from bottom of hopper. Move auger blade around left / right / beat it (Don't do this...) Now every problem is different, not being a fan of graphite / lubricants. Graphite in many cases masks problems, you commonly see people put graphite in locking mechanisms as a “cure”. Having taken apart many locks, usually there is a problem, that the graphite is masking. Many time's the lock just needed a cleaning. Likewise, lubricant has it's places, but with sealed bearings, sealed greased motors, you shouldn't need lubricant. Also lubricant will attract dust/fines, so I'm going to avoid putting any in my fine box as long as possible. In my case the fine box was FULL, the bushings were coated in fines, and after cleaning, the squeal the did not go away. Also the end of the firebox end of auger was clean and free of build up. Here is my guide to addressing the squeal issue, by cleaning the stove thoroughly by removing the auger and motor. First things first. Do a overall cleaning of unit per manual. Empty and vacuum the fines box. Scrap the fire box, and around the auger chute. Run the unit, see if it helps. If not, let's go a little farther Pulling motor and auger. Unplug the unit. Remove the right, bottom, and back covers. You will see a motor connected to the auger with a fan on it. If you want to try and find the noise, plug the unit in, don't electrocute yourself, and run it in test. You should be able to tell if the noise is coming from the back or front. Unplug unit, to remove motor, unplug it from stove, via terminal connections. They should be color coded. You may have to remove some zip ties, so have some extra on hand. Now you can either remove the auger plate (Two 1/2” nuts), and pull the motor/auger all at once, or undo the cam block (One (7/16” nuts), and pull the motor first. Now that the auger and motor is removed, you should be able to clean the chute / auger extensively, and vacuum the fine box / rear of chute out more effectively. In my case, fines had filled the unit, and were getting built up all over the end of the Auger at the bushing. Also my cam block screw had come a little lose, which could have caused issues as well. Now with the motor separated from the Auger. Hold the auger in the empty chute, and give it some spins. There should be no rubbing of the auger and it should spin freely with no resistance. There are a couple of ways to test the motor. Plug it in to the stove, run it in test mode, and watch/listen. The motor should spin at a constant rate (Matching feeder light) and not slip. You can also manually turn the motor with your hand / wrench. Just be careful not to damage the shaft. Reassembly – Make sure cam block is on in right direction. There are 2 ways to do this, mount the auger on stove, then mount the motor on the auger. Assemble the auger and motor then mount it on the stove. While option 1 is the way I believe it was meant to be done. I believe option 2 is the better choice because you will be able to put a lot more torque on the cam bolt easily(Connects motor to auger), and lining it all up behind the stove is not the easiest thing (But doable) Some useful tools - Flat head screw driver 7/16" 5/16" and 1/2" Sockets / Wrenchs Mirror (For viewing burn pot holes) Vacuum with hepa / fine debri filter 2" inch wire brush for cleaning chute. Here is where you can either pull the bolt off the cam and remove motor, or just remove auger plate nuts, and pull it assembled. Motor/Auger pulled. Only takes 3 nuts, and 2 terminal connections to pull it. I had a lot of fines stuck against the auger bushing, and that I removed. Remove the cam bolt to separate the two. Now you can clean the fire box chute thoroughly, my vacuum hose is a 1" so I actually run it through. Also use a 2" grinding wheel to clean the chute. Other picture shows where auger sits, and the 2 bolt's that hold it in place. Re-assemble. Make sure your CAM bolt is on tightly, and lined up with the straight shaft on the motor. Mine had come lose, which may have caused some of my squeal problems. Notice the rubbing on the shaft, the unit was still catching the auger and turning, I'm guessing when the pellets were just right, it caused shaft to slip. This made in USA tool kit was really all I needed to work on this made in the USA piece of equipment. This kit has come in handy many many times. Good luck!
