Lubrication for Squeaks

Lubrication for Squeaks

PostBy: Ashcat On: Sat Nov 22, 2008 9:14 pm

My ash pan door latch, and main (fill) door latch, were operating a little roughly. I bought this lithium grease, which is supposed to work well in high temperature situations, at Pep Boys for $ 3.79. This is working well for the problem areas I mentioned, and the close-up of the latch on the fill door indicates that the grease is staying right where it should, and not melting away 16 hours after application. The darker areas of grease (on the peg, which should be the hottest of these parts since it's part of the body of the stove) might suggest it's drying out a bit. I'll watch to see if this progresses.

Any other suggestions for high-temp lube products people have found helpful?

I tried anit-seeze and hi-temp silicone grease, they did not work that good.
I had a container of Permatex Ultra Disc Brake Caliper lube lying around and tried it, works great !

Thanks for the suggestions. Lithium grease so far working OK. We'll see.
