pucks not fully dropping in SG
« on: December 08, 2016, 06:58:31 am »
Hey guys,


I just noticed the other day  every once in a while the puck feeder acts like its not going far back enough to fully drop a new puck. I noticed 1st hand the past weekend after rubbing a topping on some meat that the puck on the burner was burnt out and no new puck was getting fed.  pressed the feed button and notice the puck would ALMOST drop fully in but still be caught on the push arm, so when it pushed it just lifted the puck back up to the feeder.


This doesn't always happen,   in the past 2-3 meals ive done id say its happened 3-4 times (2-3 hours of smoke per meals)

I blew out the SG of any wood chips that might of caused the issue but havent tested it again yet.... anyone else have any issues like this?  the arm seems to be working fine visually....
