I'm a new member here, and I just found this site last night after trying to do some research. Lots of good info, but I didn't seem to see an issue quite like mine. I got a early to mid 90's Whitfield Advantage II insert about 4 years ago. The auger had been jammed and the previous owner wasn't big on maintenance, so I got it for cheap. I got it cleared out and it has been working with no issues ever since then....until now. I got it all cleaned up for this winter and started running a new bag of Blazers through it and after about 15 minutes the auger becomes jammed. I can hear the motor trying to turn and the red indicator light comes on but the auger doesn't turn. If i open the hopper lid and tap on top of the auger housing it will resume dropping pellets in to the burn pot. Sometimes it will continue on for another 15 minutes and sometimes it will jam again after just a couple of turns. When I tap on it, it will usually drop some smaller pellet particles before it starts dumping pellets. The auger will run fine with no pellets in it, but will jam shortly after adding pellets. It seems like the auger motor doesn't have enough power to push the pellets all the way up and out without a jam. Is my auger motor worn out or are these pellets the problem. I have burned the Blazers every year and not had any issues. I have also used Golden Fires, Atlas, and Lignetics as well as a couple other brands I have picked up here and there. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
