My Traeger is making noise and I think its coming from the auger turning. Is there a way to lubricate the auger? Or do I just need to plan on it dying soon? Is there a way to just replace the auger? Or should I plan on buying a whole new Trager grill? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Empty all pellets including the ones in the auger. See if it makes the same noise empty. And yes the auger is a replaceable part and not very difficult to switch out.

Do you have a link where I can buy a replacement auger?
What kind of a sound is it making? Mine makes a groaning or clicking noise from time to time. I’ve read that if you get too much sawdust mixed in there you could get scraping sounds too. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
