After 3 plus years of running the stove near the coast, it had developed some rust. So I removed it to the outside and sanded down the rust spots I could find. For the first layer of paint I went with a Rustoleum high heat spray paint that I have used before with good results. I was ambevilant about mixing Rustoleum and Stove Bright but I am glad I did, as the Rustoleum paint gave much better coverage and filled into the metal nicely. Then I sprayed on some of the Stove Bright metallic black which left me disappointed as the paint did not cover very well and seems easy to scratch off. I really went crazy in the exchange tubes and sprayed major amounts of the Rustoleum in there as there was some rust dust and I am hoping the paint will slow it down. And while I had the stove out, I figured I would take apart the auger for some grease maintenance. Interestingly Enviro lists the auger motor as being manufactured by someone else instead of Gleason Avery, so I was surprised to find Gleason Avery. It's good because Gleason Avery has a friendly customer website that lets you buy them direct. http://www.gleasonavery.com/catalog/pellet-corn-stove-motors.html I was ready to replace the bushings but they looked pretty good so I left them in. Instead I put some high heat auto grease on them. I then put some high heat black silicone on the cover and placed it back on. Funny thing I noticed when reinstalling the auger motor was that the shaded part of the pole was facing to the inside of the stove but when I unscrewed it the locking screw was facing to the outside. This makes me believe the locking screw was not on the shaded side of the pole but on the round side. Small thing but it might explain some weird movements from the auger at times. I then prayed some Wurth 2000 on the motor hoping to grease it up a little. Hopes this helps anyone who has to do this.
