Got E7 motor failure trying to start up for spatchcock chicken and vegetables. Thought maybe auger was jammed with pellet dust so pulled it out and reinstalled making sure to unplug the motor wires and plug back in to be sure fully seated. No dice tried four or five times. On hold with Weber now.

Ouch...that really sucks...beginning to think that all who use these grills on a regular and heavy use basis may need to stock a fair amount of spare parts— motor, blower, etc — in addition to glow plugs. But that defeats the purpose...to say nothing of your ruined dinner plans.

That sucks!! Good news you’ll get a new motor, bad news who knows how long all that will take.

Sorry pal wish we were neighbors I’d bring you a kettle and a bag of charcoal.

Thanks! Guess I could break out the WSM for the pork butt. SmokeFire has me spoiled though. I will probably do the chicken on the Genesis. Maybe I’ll throw some pellets on the GrillGrates.

Finally got motor replacement tonight. Apparently FedEx thinks overnight means that’s how long it needs to sit in Memphis without moving.

Installed and fired up to 225 left there for few minutes and then set to 600 and hit it in 10 minutes. Pushing my luck and going to put an 8 lb pork butt on overnight tonight. Wish me luck.
