Removing Debris From Auger

Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

how do you clean the worm tube ? I need to get shale or fines cleaned out. breaking sheer pins left and right.
when I get coal {rice} the delivery people chute it in coal pin but they shoveled some shale from driveway into coal bin.
can I backfeed the auger manually or is that a bad idea?

Did you look at the thread on the top of this section. It gives you breakdown of certain parts, not sure if it's the same model, but
might help in dis-assembly

Lift your drive pawl and check pawl out of the way and crank it backwards. Are your two pipes tight together inside the coupling? Wet coal is also hard on pins.
