It has been dry during corn harvest, with the fodder and shuck being so dry I've had a continuous problem with the cleaning shoe fan grate getting coated over and restricting the air to the screens , I remove the inspection covers on each side and bored them full of 1/2" hoping that would help some, but can't really tell if it did or not, any suggestions to correct this problem would be greatly appreciated as this is not normally a problem.

You will just have to live with it. IF you let too much fodder into the internal cleaning system it will plug things up like the bottom of the screens/chaffer/sieve. It is easier to clean of the fan screen every bin than take the combine apart to clean inside.

I keep my Stihl leaf blower in the cab of my grain truck so after dumping I can grab it and blow off all the crap off from all parts of the combine. Mike

I have the same problem in my K, when the fans get plugged up on mine it starts putting more trash in the shelled corn. I haven't found a fix yet, just have to get off and knock it off.
