Auger not working on Blaze King Pellet Stove

Can anyone help? Our Blaze King is around 20 years old. My FIL purchased it new and owing to failing health did not use it for a long time. My Wife and I acquired the house from his Estate and had the chimney swept. The stove was cleaned and lit. It worked satisfactorily for several occasions but the Auger does not seem to operate and therefore does not supply fuel to the burner. Any ideas? Thanks

Depending on how the manufacturer set up the system, there may be pellets wedging the auger. most augers are geared low enough to snap the pellet but if its something else blocking it (stick or rock etc) it may have blown a fuse for the auger drive or the drive mechanism itself. if you are going to work on the auger. UNPLUG THE STOVE AND USE TOOLS TO CLEAR BLOCKAGE as there may still be some pressure to spin auger

We have an Envirofire pellet stove. The auger won't shut off and we can't control the the speed. We had to unplug it. Any thoughts?


You didn't mention which model Envirofire Pellet Stove you have, but generally they all have a heat overload switch, which stops the auger from feeding pellets if the stove gets to hot. They may be faulty. Or The Auger Timing Control Module may have failed. Depending on the age of the stove the gasket material around the door may need replacing. If it's not a tight fit, it's sucking air into the stove and causing it to run more than it should. Normally, I would say, "If all else fails, contact their Technical Service Dept." But, apparently they don't want the consumer contacting them, as there is no contact info on their website. Nor, is there any contact info on the manufacturer's website, Sherwood Industries. "Any technical service questions should be directed to your local dealer."

Hope this helped to get you headed in the right direction in solving the problem.

Purchased a used Earth stove mp240 pellet stove and the auger does not move. we are looking for a manual or information on this stove it is an older stove we just don't know how old. Thank You


The auger motor is fed through a high temp. limit thermostat. It has a manual reset on the back of it that you have to press on firmly to reset it. Open the side panel on the stove and find the wiring. You will see the thermostat on the back side of the combustion chamber. Look very closely and reset it.
good luck!

Pellet stove


The buzzing is possibly your exhaust/combustion blower. This blower is the fan sound you hear as the stove starts up. If you ARE hearing a NORMAL fan sound, then the buzzing could be the auger motor. Do you have a Foxfire with an igniter? This tells me the series of model you have and what control system it uses.
