    I cleaned my stove out today, and after cleaning out the fines trap, I noticed a glob of grease leaking from the auger motor. I am thinking a bearing is out on it to cause that leak. This doesn't look normal, but I thought I would check here.

    Thanks,

    Jerold

    I believe that is a bushing not a bearing. It may be worn enough to allow grease to get by but is should not come totally unglued to the point the motor is inoperable. You may want to order a spare if it bothers you.

    Not normal... How old the is the stove? Any chance it could have been there since day 1? Guess i would wipe it off and see if any further leaking occurs. Still leaks - If you're handy, fix it or replace it and save as a backup.

    The stove was purchased Feb 2012. I'll have the dealer replace it under warranty.
