How to replace an Auger Motor

Most pellet stoves are built exactly the same with few differences.  In my 10 years of repairing pellet stoves, I don’t remember every working on one with an auger motor that wasn’t installed this way.  I hope this helps.

  • Unplug your stove from power.
  • If your stove is free standing you will need to remove the access screws on the back of the stove to access the motor.
  • If your stove is an insert you will need to remove the shroud and pull it out of the fireplace.
  • Remove the auger motor.  The motor is located at the very back of the stove towards the bottom and is secured by the shaft with a single bolt.  Unscrew bolt with Allen wrench.  Slide auger motor out of auger shaft (can be a fight).
  • If it won’t come loose you may need to whack it with a hammer or pry it w/ a big screwdriver.
  • Disconnect wiring from old motor and attach to new motor.
  • Slide new motor shaft into auger shaft and secure with bolt.
  • Put stove back together, plug in and start.  You should here the auger turn.

  • Well, this is twice Jason has saved my bacon! Why pellet stoves only break down in the winter is beyond me (HaHa!) this time I was sure I was up the creek being so near Christmas. Jason came through again, should have known better, last time it was New Years. Great parts at great prices and 24/7 tech support to boot. Still waiting for the place I bought the stove to call me about the part so I’ll just delete their phone number at this point. Thanks again Jason!
