Has anyone heard this before? I have a short video of what I mean. It doesn’t make the noise every time but enough to be annoying. Maybe every 3rd time it turns on. Sometimes the whole time sometimes just a little bit and sounds normal then.

Maybe turn up or turn the volume. It takes a second or two. I can hear it.
I heard it the second time
Definitely not normal
I’d dump the pellets out and run it empty to see if it does it again
If it does I’d definitely call pitboss support

Yeah I think that’s what I’m gonna do. But prolly vacuum out the auger and run it totally empty and if I don’t t hear it then try some pellets that I was using before I changed pellets. It’s not ideal weather to be doing it but idk it’s just snow lol.

Great idea
I sift mine through a colander and store the rest in a airtight container

Yeah I should start sifting. I already keep them in air tight containers. I noticed that the cookin pellet brand seemed a little dustier than previous ones or the bag just got tossed around more. I reallly like the flavor of those pellets so I’m hoping it’s not the pellets. They seem bigger then other brands I use.
 
I still don’t know what my issue is I emptied out the hopper and vacuumed the auger out ran the grill with no pellets for a bit and still had noises. I’m wondering if it’s the motor. It’s not the right day to pull it all apart. So I added some different pellets and fired it up lol.
