    Fourth year with the Harman. Yesterday, heard an intermittent whistle from the stove, which, within the hour, became a constant whistle. Being an avid daily reader of this forum, I knew that I was going to 1) try to really scrape the burn pot then 2) empty and vacuum out the hopper. I shut the stove down, really scraped the burnpot, started her up, WHISTLE-LESS! Just a small thanks for all the knowledge gained here!

    Yes, there was...I clean the stove weekly, but didn't get the carbon build up closer to the auger I assume.

    might ought to yank the feed motor off the auger and give the auger a spin by hand....listen for a rub by the auger bearing....could be a chunk of sawdust stuck between the auger bearing and the end of the flights of the auger........
