I've had my Yoder since around May. It's worked flawlessly until today. I'm cooking some butts and it started making a strange noise. It occurs when the auger is activated. The best way to describe the noise is it's like the old "Operation" game. The one where if you touch the sides when removing the part it buzzed at you. The pit is keeping temp, so I know the auger is still turning. Any suggestions?

Buzzing was due to vibrating of the auger housing on a metal section of the hopper. Email tech support was great and when I had an additional question regarding the fix, phone support was great. A bit of velcro between the two parts took care of the noise.
