Auger too slow for Grill mode (sometimes)


New member

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.


The auger will turn continuously when set to grill mode and there is only one speed.
Contact us at MAK Grills and we will help you out :)
