    Auger too slow for Grill mode (sometimes)


    Looking for some help with my 2 Star.

    When I want some high temp GRILL temps, my Mak does not always come up to temp. (like 1 out of 10 times).

    I can see that it ignites OK, but after that the auger does not dump enough pellets to get high temps. Its not a issue with the pellets because it seems to work fine the next day..

    I've had my 2 star for almost 8 years now.. I upgraded the Igniter..other than than everything else is original equipment

    The best advice is to contact MAK, they can get you sorted out and running. I interpret you to say that 1 time in 10 the MAK does not come up to temp i.e. only 10% of the time it doesn't reach temp. By 'upgraded' do you mean you've installed the 'flashfire' igniter? Are you starting with a cleaned out firepot?

    You should consider upgrading at least the firmware on your Pellet Boss controller. There have been some significant upgrades/changes to the controller over the last 8 years.

    If you haven't done it yet, also upgrade to the new flame zone, especially if you want quicker, higher temps!

    The auger will turn continuously when set to grill mode and there is only one speed.
