    I wonder if the motor is going after five years of being my primary heat source?

    As my problem is intermittent, it has me slightly perplexed.

    The auger is not making any unusual noise. I've made sure to thoroughly remove any fines, etc. When the hopper is full, the green auger light comes on but pellets do not come out in time. This has been causing the stove to burn out.

    When I empty to the hopper, it seems to work perfectly. I can then fill the hopper to 1/2 or 3/4 and have no issues. However, if I fill it I run into issues again! Is it the weight of the pellets?

    I started having issues at the end of last season. After a thorough cleaning, I started this season fine but seem to be having the problems again now.

    I appreciate any feedback!
