    mount Vernon AE optical lens

    Been getting a auger jam when the flight/chute is clear. Its intermitten where When ever I show up start up is fine but customer says the wall control displays error code later. Tech suggested replace flight/optical sensor/auger motor. How often have you guys had issues with the sensor?

    It is almost never the sensor, It's probably the auger motor.
    Make sure the disc is clear of debris. Remove all of the pellets completely, pull the auger motor and auger.
    Make sure there is no foreign objects causing intermittent lock ups. But if I was a betting man I would put my money on a auger motor.

    Thanks DV, yeah never had any issues with sensor when I call tech they have a part number that replaces total assembly/motor/sensor just wanted to save customer on repair if you can put one of the above three instead all all. We will see how it works out. Have a cool one.
