2300 maintenance and dealer
« on: April 03, 2011, 11:55:18 AM »
Had my dealer out this am to do a bunch of stuff that I should have done last summer / fall.  Drilled the holes.  Changed out the fusion chamber.  Changed the door gasket.  He also dUmped about 2.5 cords of split oak.  Not bad for a Sunday morning.  I've got to say he does a pretty good job of caring for my stove.

While it was clean and empty, I took a look at the air holes.  While the tool I use to clean out the openings had been doing a fine job, this time I used a heavy coat hanger wire to scrape out the air channel between the holes.  Got a lot of stuff out, even though the stove had been working well.  I then kicked on the fan the assure myself that the air channels were open.  Fired her up and got almost immediate gasification.  From now on  I'll use the coat hanger trick on a yearly basis, or more often if necessary, to guarantee good air flow.

Hey Doc,
Is the air channel you speak of behind the firebox or actually a channel cut in the fire box between holes? I believe you have a 1999 model like me, so I'm assuming it's the area behind.
I also changed my door gasket last month, it made a huge difference in airflow.

BTW, nice bass!

Yes, I was referring to the air space behind the surface I to which the holes are drilled.  I could pass the coat hanger from one hole, through the channel and past the next adjacent hole.  I could see dust like debris coming out of that hole while I worked the coat hanger.

OK on the coat hanger doctorb. I'll add it to my boiler tool pouch. Along with the crowbar, pointy screwdriver, and 6ft iron scraper. I was able to get the boiler back up last night. Just cleaning out the 4 back holes was enough to get the boiler up to 185. I guess that's hot enough to melt any creosote that had built up in the air passageways? We'll see how it's doing tonight.

Nothing for a replacement that I can find for the light.  For $13 its cheap enough.  I burned up the only one in the first year and now I know what not to do to melt them!!!
