Didn’t get a lot of pics, but my boy came over today and together we did the auger/motor replacement. Pretty easy just took about an 2 hours start to finish, maybe a little less. Took out the ramp, and the wire guard. Refilled turned it to 600. Took about 15 minutes to get there. Going to let it go for .5 hours. Pellet dust was compacted in the auger tube and in the flange thing that is welded on now. Could be why temps where acting up.

Those are pellets that have gotten wet... definitely not dust because they still have some shape to them. Take a few dry ones and add water-They will look like what is in the auger. They kind of hold their shape but crumble. Dust looks like dust without any shape

That auger was in bad shape.
The new one should fix the issues.

Any reason behind installing a new glow plug?
Didnt you just do that 2-3 weeks ago?

I don’t know how they got wet. Never spilled anything. Keep grill pretty clean at all times. I think it was just dust from different pellet brands. Kind of weird. But your right it does look like they got wet. I installed
New glow plug because they sent me the whole assembly new. So I just figured why not, while I have it apart...
