Default Louisiana Grills

A wood pellet food grill I'd purchased 2 years, 11 months and 29 days ago failed yesterday, one day shy of its warranty.
*Opened it up today, fixed it in less than 5 minutes.
Well made, a screw on the corkscrew feeder had finally worked itself lose.
Looked at all the wiring, nuttin out of place, plugged it in and the whole motor assembly spun, hitting the pellet bin with a resounding thunk and then shut itself off.
"Well, that can't be good"
Saw a screw on the bottom of the assembly, hmm let's see where this goes.
Sure enough it holds the motor assembly in place...
Smoked chicken thighs are on for tonight!

*Never be afraid to open something up and look inside.
A replacement Traeger grill with cover and shelf and slightly better specs goes for just under a grand.

~Like my dad always said to a plumber, electrician or tradesman, "I don't mind you feeding your family, just not Filet mignons and baked Alaska on my dime"~

Would have MKPA, but I've been out of phone range in the deer woods. However, now that you admit it, having a screw loose fits quite well and explains a lot about you my friend, Lol. I know you most likely got my brother on facebook pretty good with your comment. But as you can see he is really liberal. He says just a little left of center, but I know better.
