i went to give the channing III its first run of the season and the cumbustion an would not work at all. I slid out the assembly manually moved the fan for a few minutes and now it will work but sounds a squeally and is a lot louder than I remember. is there any type of lubricant or anything you can spray to quiet it down or other fixes?

If you search on here you'll see how people deal with or fix it. Some spray stuff inside it well others take it apart and lube it from the inside.

Use very little lube, two or three drops on each bushing is enough.
Nothing is impossible for people who don't have to do it themselves.
