Run mine overnight for 8 hours, no flame out. More than once. No tape. And I never do more than push the pellets from the shallow side to he auger end, piling them up as the hopper level decreases. Early gen1, all updated, no finger guard.Yes. Full or not, I've always had to smoosh pellets. Emailed and spoke on the phone with Weber reps many times. None of their suggestions ever worked. I've never done an overnight cook, which is one of the reasons I bought this beast. I think my friend's theory has merit. Otherwise, I may end up using a cement vibrator and a timer.
p.s. I can't help saying how much I enjoy posts stating how everything works fine ;-) There's definitely a manufacturing process, or some other variation that causes some owners to have no problems while others have nightmares.
p.s.s. I'm living the dream! Nightmares are dreams too :-(
