Hello Found more info on the Magnum Baby CountrySide Auger motor bushing. from http://www.americanenergysystems.com/Stock/LibraryFiles/t-0068babywinchestertroubleshooting1.pdf Auger Motor- The auger motor is located at the base of the auger. The motor is held on be one set screw to the auger. There are two bushings on the auger system- one is a bronze bushing located at the top and a delron bushing at the base. The long bolt next to the auger motor is meant to act as a stop for the motor. In case of an auger jam the bolt can be removed to release tension on the motor/auger. The auger motor does not receive varying voltage- it is either on or off. The on/off time will vary depending on heat setting. The auger motor for the MagnuM Baby Countryside and MagnuM Winchester is the same as the fuel stirrer motor on the MagnuM Countryside. If the auger motor isn’t running check the high limit snap disk, voltage going to the motor, obstructions in the auger, the vacuum/pressure switch, and continuity of the wiring harness. If the auger motor is run on a high heat setting and if there isn’t proper air circulation the motor will overheat and shut off. It is important to have adequate air flow in the room that the stove is operating in, if not the heat will not transfer to other areas of the home.
