Help! I've got a big catering coming up tomorrow and the auger on my YS1500 has stopped feeding pellets. I emptied the pellet hopper and cleaned out all around the auger, and also cleaned around the auger inside the chamber in case there was char buildup. It turns fine for awhile and then just stops. If I jiggle it around it will turn about 1/2 turn and stop again. There is no scraping noise or anything, it just stops.

Thanks!

Thanks to Herb's late night message, this problem was solved! Over the winter the screw on the auger had come a bit loose, allowing it to start slipping occasionally and stop feeding pellets. Simply tightening up this screw solved the issue and we cooked all day with no problems! Thanks again to the great support of Yoder Smokers!!
