Eggniter Malfunction and Fix

Just thought I'd share this in case anyone else encounters this problem. I was lighting my egg (with eggniter) earlier and as soon and I got the coals lit, it malfunctioned. The fan that the motor turns (when lighting and fanning) got hung up. I took it apart and realized that there are small rubber plug type things inside the plastic framing (that don't really seem to serve much of a purpose) and one of them fell out of its place and got sucked into the fan and locked it up. I was able to locate it with a flashlight and get it out with small needle-nose pliers. As soon as I cleared it, it worked again. These things are kind of pricy so hopefully this helps you if you're as unlucky as I was.
