    How do figure out if the auger motor is bad or the bearing block?
    My stove starts up fine but after a while it stops since no pellets come out. I check the bin and it's full. So I go behind the stove and check the auger motor and the top auger is stuck so I force it free and start up the stove and it's fine.
    I'll leave and return later and it burned out again. While burning I can hear the motor when it turns. It is a little louder than it used to be but I also hear slight clunking. Sounds like when I force the auger free and the motor is hitting the bottom support plate.
    Any suggestions or should I just replace the entire auger, motor and bearing block? I purchased the stove used last year and from the receipts I got with the manual nothing has been replaced since 2008(?).
    Thanks for your help.

    Pull the top auger and connect the bottom auger wires to it, turn on the stove the auger should run continuously. Make sure no wires are touching anything they carry line voltage. With the auger off try turning the top auger shaft by hand(probably need to empty hopper) and see if it catches on anything. Welcome to the forums and let us know how you make out

    Pellet stoves save money comlared to what? Depends on how big of an area and if you like to use 3 bags of pellets in 24 hours. The burn time talked about 18 to 22 hours is BS. Only if its on 1 setting for no heat

    Yes, it is loud but it heats the first floor of my 2500sq home to 72-76° before the first bag of pellets is completed. BTW I start off at 4 and when it gets warm enough I lower it to 3 or 2.
    But the pellets do make a big difference. Bought a bunch of left over pellets off CL last year which burned like garbage. Ran out and purchased a ton from the local pellet dealer and now a bag lasts about 20 hrs on 2-3 with the room at about 75ish. So freshness does make a difference.

    Lots of stoves out there, and you get what you pay for. England stove works makes a low budget afordable stove that when maintained works as advertised. All pellet stoves are space heaters, as are wood stoves. If you take the time to learn your stove and keep them clean they will serve you well.

    Sorry, ordered the bearing blocks for $7.24/ea on Amazon. Replaced them both and stove runs fine. No binding or sticking. I think it was a good $14.50 investment.
