I had the same problem. 6" auger - 12 foot long. Put a 115 volt one horse power electric motor on it and it would just humm. Same motor runs a flat six inch unload tube in other bins just fine. My problems were: 1) Too much auger exposed at the bottom. 2) Too much voltage drop running electricity across the farm to this one particular bin. 3) Too much of an angle. 4) Couldn't reduce any kind of flow with a slide gate. So, I took the screw out of the auger and put the right direction in to run with the PTO of a tractor. Works great. Tractor sits there at idle and does the job. Proper shielding is in place.

what size and length is your extension cord, should be larger wire for longer cord, minimum #14 and better #12 or #10, If the cord is too long or too small the motor will start unloaded but not have enough voltage to run loaded, Motors get burned up due to the cords being too long or too small
