Have you installed the hopper insert? Are you using Weber (or the same size) pellets? Have you removed the finger guard? Have you installed the welded chute? These are all topics that have been discussed multiple times and any of them may cause problems. If you answer these questions you will get multiple suggestions.So for the second time I had this problem where pellets are not getting to the fire pot! Last time I had the problem I cleaned out the hopper and it started working fine! But really didn’t understand what was happening! I should have taken a photo. But one could see where the sawdust had built up and jammed up at the bottom of the hopper. Is this part of an upgrade needed?
Yeah, the finger guard is about 95% of all pellet feed issues IMO. This is assuming everyone now has the newest chute/ auger. I have been using the Weber pellets exclusively but am not sure if that’s as big a deal now that I have the welded chute. I like them so I suppose I’ll just keep using them. The ramp is something I never bothered to install. I figure the same exact profile of pellets exist in my SF without the ramp but instead of the ramp, I have more pellets under that profile.Have you installed the hopper insert?

Yes. Weber distributed a welded one-piece auger assembly last year to replace the original two-piece auger. It is free to all registered owners of record and should definitely improve your performance.Well now its working again. After taking my shopvac to the clog, and then restarting it. It went right up to temp! No sweat! My turkey is in the brine for tomorrow! I saw that there’s an upgrade to the hopper design on utube. Anybody done one of those?
I love mine and I’ve cooked on lots of units. Enjoy and welcome.Just registered and first post but have been following the forum for a while. Just ordered a Gen2 EX6 here in the US direct from Weber....been looking at this thing from day one and was really sad to see all the issues people were having with them but I've been following its progress and it seems like they have got things resolved for the most part. Hoping this Gen2 is good to go out of the box. Couldn't pass up the deal Weber has on them right now....$200 off and free shipping adds up to a 20% savings.
