REPLACING YOUR AUGER MOTOR

IF THERE IS A JAM

  1. On the bottom grate under the hopper, locate the 4 screws that hold it in place and remove them.
  2. Remove the 2 screws holding in the controller.
  3. Once removed, rotate the controller so you can push it through where it was housed.
    1. Unless already removed, clip the zip ties holding all the wires together.
  4. Locate the 4 screws holding the hopper assembly on the grill and remove them (2 on either side).
  5. Carefully remove the hopper assembly.
  6. Remove the 1/4-inch bushing screw (Screw holding the auger to the grill frame).
  7. With force, try to pull the auger motor back and forth by hand to loosen the jam.
  8. Using a 5-16-inch socket wrench, remove the Shear pin, freeing the auger from the Auger motor.
  9. Once the auger is free, disconnect the old auger motor and connect the replacement.
    • See the Wiring diagram for more info on connecting the auger motor. 
  10. Insert the new auger and follow these steps in reverse to reassemble.
