FEC 100 Maintanence Login/Join

The only place I could see to oil the auger on the FEC 100 is from inside the auger. Am I correct?

And with the draft fan do you just oil right directly behind the fan?
Thanks

Briggsy,There is a nylon wear bushing just inside the brass bushing where the auger shaft goes through. I recommend putting some grease on both sides of that every six months. There is an oil hole on the top of the auger motor bearing that you should put a few drops of 3in1 oil in every six months as well.

Thanks, I used 3 in 1 oil where the auger enters the pellet hopper, and I also used some oil inside the pellet hopper, again just where the auger enters the hopper.

I also used the oil directly behind the draft fan, on the shaft of the draft fan.

Sorry I'm somewhat electronically / mechanically dysfunctional. So, I'll take another look and if I have problems I'll give a call.

Thanks, I appreciate the help / advice.
