    Finished cleaning today. First time since mid-October
    Ash pan about 2/3 full; cleaned combustion fan blades; temp probe; exhaust pipe;
    burn pot; area under igniter; cleaned circulation fan blades and fines box.

    The squeal that we had came from the bronze bushings under the fines box cover.
    They are part of the slide assembly. So I did spray them with a silicon lubricant as
    it happened again about 2 weeks ago.

    Earlier I had stated that these were bushings for the auger.

    Was the fines box full? That's the only time mine will get a squeak.

    It did have quite a bit in it. When we had this happen about 2 years ago, the fine box was clean.
    Well, time will tell. Other than that, smooth sailing!!

    Happy Holidays!!
