Appears frozen up, after probably 7 years of no use. Inherited from my brother, have read instructions and followed them, plus a lot of the instructions here. Spoke to a tech at my local QuadraFire outlet, suggested a new motor (we checked the reset button, vaccuum issue doesn't appear to be a problem, as it won't even run when pushing the main external start/reset button).
Besides applying a liberal dose of penetrating oil, any suggestions? I was able to remove the motor w/out problem, can't seem to get the auger to come off, even w/ removing the set screw...
Motor has power going to it (feels like it's "humming" when I touch it, so trying to do something), don't want to spend $180 on a new motor.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
