I do not see any other unburned coal in the ash bucket . anybody have any ideas why this happends
What year is your 520 do you have the old style goose neck bolted on the bottom of the pot where the Auger & Tube goes
in. If so check for loose bolts and check and see if it is burned out around the lip if so you will need a refurb goose neck
being efm does not make the old style any more . If it is burned out the coal will fall in the ash tube everytime the Auger feeds the coal . If you have the new style pot also check the bolts on the bottom half of the pot to see if they are loose. Also check the rope gaskets . When you replaced the pot auger did you put in a new Pot bushing if not you need to .
Make sure the Pot Auger tube is against the stopper Pin that is in the goose neck on the new & old style Pot there is a shoulder inside to where the tube should be against it .
