Feed auger motor noisy, ground ...
Ok, this is the first I am hearing of this ground wire thing.
After season 4 with my Europa I awoke to the feed motor making a helluva alot of noise, only to see that it completely bound up and wasn't feeding pellets.
Thinking the auger was jammed I emptied the stove and took the motor and gearbox off.
The shaft spun so easily, I knew it was the motor or gears.
Took the gear box apart and noticed the grease was caked up and pretty hard.
While taking the gears out I noticed the one gear that sits on a roll pin which sits in a hole, and how the hole was getty sloppy and the gear could shift making contact with the gear housing, causing it to jamb.
Well, I regreased and reassembled everything and it seemed to work fine for a day or two, and now it is making noise again, ALOT of noise, but still turning the auger.
I actually have heard this type of noise before on other motors I have and just assumed they were getting burned out.
What does this ground wire do, clean the line voltage noise?
Where should I ground the wire too?
And I may buy a new motor and gearbox anyway just in case.

need New stove for Bio Block B ...
I showed the door to my old wood stove, it leaked smoke like a sieve since brand new, and I could never figure it out.
I burn pellet in my Dell-Point Europa, which is upstairs, and now looking to replace the stove that was downstairs with something small.
I was thinking a pot belly but I want something efficient.
Since I only plan to burn ECo or the Bio blocks, I dont plan to make a big fire.
It wa bad enough I couldn't get one going with the big stove I had, so i figured a smaller stove with just 2 logs in it will be all that i need.
Hampton Regency H200 nice,,,but even after the gov incentive it was still $1300
I'm sorry but that tax credit has to go, but that is another story.
The H200 is puny small and perfect, but I can't stomache $1300 when I see a ton of other larger stoves going for less.
Jotul 602 was another, but they said I would void the warranty burning bio blocks.
I was hoping to spend $300 -$400 on some small cheap stove. you know, the Northern tool types, or TSC types.
But if I have to spend more I guess I am stuck.
So any suggestions for a small wood/bio compatible??
