ASH REMOVAL AND DISPOSAL

Daily Ash Maintenance

Press the "OFF" touch pad and allow the stove to burn for five (5) minutes prior to opening the door. A long-handled screwdriver or long-handled putty knife can be used to scrape off any build-up or crust in the burn pot area. This can then be pushed to the left or right into the ash storage area.

Weekly Ash Removal

Shut the stove down by pressing the "OFF" touch pad and allowing the unit to go through the complete shut down cycle. Allow the unit to completely cool down and then remove the ashes with a scoop or an Ash Vacuum (Part # AC-AV) The ashes should be placed in a non-combustible container with an airtight lid and should always be placed on a non-combustible surface or on the ground until completely cooled and free of hot cinders. Once the ashes are removed, the burn pot should be given a complete inspection. Remove the Burn Pot Wear Plate and check for any build-up in the front of the burn area. Clean out all air holes - if necessary, a 1/8" drill bit can be used to perform this task. These air holes should be kept clean, as they supply combustion air under and around the pellet fuel.

Monthly Ash Removal

The large baffle plate  or "Impingement Plate" positioned above and behind the burn pot should be removed monthly. This can be done by lifting up the plate and pulling it out. The area behind the plate should then be cleaned thoroughly, and the plate placed back in the original position. The Burn Pot Assembly should also be thoroughly cleaned, and the wear plate should be removed and cleaned. Before replacing the wear plate, clean the burn box thoroughly.

Annual Cleaning

The stove and the flue system (Click Here for Flue Cleaning) should be given a complete cleaning at the end of the heating season.  Remove the burn pot assembly, clean it thoroughly, and re-install it.  This will require new burn pot gasket (Part # PU-BPG). Be sure to tighten the set screws when you replace them, but do not over-tighten. In addition to the cleaning mentioned earlier, the Exhaust Blower should be removed annually and the blower tube vacuumed of any ash build up.  When cleaning or replacing the blower a new combustion blower  gasket (Part # PU-CBG) should be added between the blower flange and the steel exhaust tube. Soot and Fly ash: Formation and Need for Removal - The products of combustion will contain small particles of fly ash. The fly ash will collect in the exhaust venting system and restrict the flow of flue gases.  Incomplete combustion, such as occurs during startup, shutdown, or incorrect operation of the room heater will lead to some soot formation which will collect in the exhaust venting system. The exhaust venting system should be inspected at least once every year to determine if cleaning is necessary.
