    Hello, could use some help here. I have a 25 - pdvc englander pellet stove - 8 yrs old . bottom auger motor replaced Jan 2016 ... stove works perfect for 2 hrs then the bottom auger stops turning . it's not jammed at all , I can move it , it just stops turning . control panel does not indicate any E - codes so I press the off button myself . settings on control board - fuel feed 4 , burn air 4 , on temp 1 ... I believe these are factory preset . Could this be an auger motor overheating or control panel issue ? Thank you Dann

    Yes,could be motor overheating, control board problem,possible worn out auger bearing, making auger drag.I recommend checking for voltage at auger motor when it dies.

    Try swaping the top and bottom augers and see if it stops.
