    decided to get the stove ready seeing its starting to get cool out, turned it on and did not hear any pellets feeding. after looking at the stove i noticed the auger motor fell completed off the auger itself which is held up on the auger by a allen head set screw. so i installed the auger motor again, fired up the stove and still no pellets feeding. un-mounted the motor and took a quick look at it, and hile holding it the auger motor selenoid will pop in and out but will not engage the actual motor. i can feel the selenoid working but the motor will not turn. so it seems i need to replace the auger motor.
    stove is a little over a year old and says it has a limited lifetime warranty so we'll see tomorrow when i call the dealer ( told ny lennox to call dealer). wost case scenario i have to buy the auger motor which s arounf $100.
    im glas it happened today instead of when it was really cold out.......also nice its a very simple stove to work on, of course you would think lennox would have used a little loc-tite on the set screw which is huge....
