I am moving into a house which uses propane heat. There is a pellet stove in the living room which appears to operate except the auto feeder isn't feeding the pellets. Could this an easily fixable problem? An ideas on what to check; I am a fairly able handy man and am willing to take it apart if needed. Thanks!

I would plan on trashing the pellet stove and put in something like a propane or gas fireplace instead. I have had all the alternative heaters and they all have the down side. Pellet stove have a blower that runs at a high speed (to keep the pellet lit) and it is really noisy. I could never depend on the pellet stove as it often jammed and would quit while i was asleep or gone. They are also hard to light. They run too much and you get a stove full of pellets that you have to clean out before you can relight.
good luck
