What is OEM & AMP?
"OEM" or Original Equipment Manufacturer are parts that the stove manufacturer makes themselves or outsources from other suppliers for their specific stove models. When you order replacement parts for your pellet stove directly from a manufacturer or it’s retailers you can be certain that these parts will be “OEM”.
"AMP" is an acronym that stands for After Market Parts. This is equipment that is sourced out directly which cuts out the stove manufacturers hefty markup. AMP equipment works exactly the same as its OEM counterpart, especially when you’re looking at blowers, igniters, fire backs, switches, gaskets and controls, as quite often, they are made by the same exact manufacturer that supplied the OEM parts as you will see with many “Fasco” blowers and “Gleason Avery” auger motors.
Here at Stove Parts 4 Less we like to offer you the choice of the OEM and the AMP version of products whenever possible to save you money. In some cases we like to offer multiple versions of the AMP part where they are made by the same manufacturer as the original or an alternative version at an even lower price.

Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
I have a pepin and recently pellets are piling up on the grate. does the Grate Shaft Cage Weldment have anything to do with this?
Possibly. There is a small motor that tips the shaker grate back and forth. If that motor has failed and not tipping used fuel off out of the cage weldment then you will see build up.
The small motor looks like this Versa Grate Motor.
The next time you run the stove. Observe this motor and the components that are linked to it. You want to see movement with the rod and the grate inside the firebox moving. Here is the operations manual for the Pepin: Pepin Manual
Refer to page 8 and page 12 to identify the parts that you are looking to see if they are moving to cause the tipping off of used fuel in the burn area.
