Greasing the Auger Bearing on 25-PDVC/ 25-PDV


The Englander 25-PDV and 25-PDVC auger bearings do not come greased when purchased brand new. See the dry channel in the pictures below. See Englander 25-PDVC auger and bearings in pictures below.

Simply pump red high temperature grease from a cartridge into the alemite (Zerk) fitting using a grease gun purchased from Lowes or Home Depot.

This should be done atleast every 2-3 years to keep your auger motor from wearing out easily.

Here are some helpful reference pictures:
