Our Olivia Pellet/Corn stove has been real good until tonight. The hopper was full. It had been burning 2 hours. My husband turned it up to 5, which is the highest setting, and we've done this many times before. After awhile he smelled something strange and called me into the room. Flames were coming out of the hole the pellets fall....so pellets in the auger were burning? We grabbed every extinguisher we could find. Turned the stove off. And waited. The fire in the pot burned out and everything died down. The inside of the hopper wasn't hot at all. So I presume the burned/warm pellets are sitting in the auger right now. I'm going to call the company in the morning, but what would you do?
