I bought a YS640 pellet smoker in May 2015. I noticed over the last several cooks, the auger makes a loud noise when it first kicks on. It sounds like something is vibrating and only lasts maybe 5-10 seconds. It will periodically make this noise through out the cook. Does anyone know what would cause this noise?

Check to make sure that the sound deadening is between the auger motor and the fan housing: download/Install%20and%20Repair/PROCEDURE%20FOR%20INSTALLING%20VELCRO%20TO%20INNER%20FAN.PDF

Thanks for the response, there is Velcro on the fan housing. The auger motor does have some play in it (can be slightly lifted up and down). Is this normal?

I added a new piece of Velcro and the noise stopped. Thanks for the help!
