Herein, how do you fix the auger on a pellet stove?
The first step is to unplug the auger. Then open the top of the stove and remove all the pellets. Once you have done this, vacuum completely to ensure there are no pellets or dust remaining around the feeder. On one side of the stove, there is a cover with screws holding it on, which allows access to the auger.
Beside above, why is my Auger not turning? f it is broken or worn out, and ensure that the belt is properly adjusted. If the belt is broken or worn out, replace it. The V-belt makes the connection between the engine and the gearbox. If the V-belt is worn out, misadjusted, or broken, the auger won't turn.

If the pellet stove is not burning efficiently or producing suitable quantities of heat, the problem could be a result of air leaks through the door seals. Take a look at the door seal and make sure it closes with a perfect fit to eliminate air leaks.
