So this season my stove starting making a random single popping noise. It happens when pellets are being dropped into the pot. It's really loud when It does it and if I can feel it on the auger motor if I keep my hand on it. it does this randomly and not consistently. Is the motor on it's way out? Everything works as it should but it has me wondering and wanting to be prepared to repair it if it's gonna be an issue.


Thanks

Check to see if there are any really long pellets in your hopper, they can vary batch to batch
