Stove works fine but every time the pellets drop and the pellet feed auger turns, there is a loud grinding noise?
See this noisy video - turn your sound up.

After replacing the auger feed motor, when the pellets drop it is very quiet. :)
See quiet video - turn your sound up.

When the auger was removed the leaking grease can easily be seen!!
