    Remove the combustion blower and clean the blades for 16 year old stoves or perhaps even 3 yrs olds. Wait until later if the combustion air flow is adequate.

      Remove the combustion blower and clean the blades for 16 year old
      stoves or perhaps even 3 yrs olds.

      Wait until later if the combustion air flow is adequate. Additional
      cleaning is not necessary. The blades are probably clean enough if good
      clean inside room air is used for combustion air.

      If the corn stove is set up or has ever been set up to use outside air
      for combustion air, you can believe the fan blades could use a good
      cleaning. For a corn stove between 3 yrs old and 16 yrs old, the
      combustion blower blades have moved tons of air. The design curve in
      the blades may well be smoothed out with dirt, dust, & particulate when
      dirty exhaust air got pulled back into the fan blades.

      If outside air is used for combustion air, Guess what happened to solid
      exhaust particulate that exhausted while cleaning the stove.
      Unfortunately, the intake sucked solid carbon exhaust right back into
      the intake where the sticky carbon stuff stuck to the fan blades. After
      sixteen years of operation, or perhaps even three, some fan blades
      could use a good cleaning.

      To gain access to the combustion fan, unplug the electrical 110vac
      plug. Remove the stove rear and/or side panel. Disconnect the two
      electrical connectors. Remove the two retaining nuts to the combustion
      fan.
      For corrosion protection after cleaning the fan blades, shine the
      blades with rejectX.
      For super quiet operation, lubricate both bearings on the fan motor
      with corrosionx.

      Dyke Parker can attest to the benefit of fan blade cleaning. Dyke's
      stove is sixteen years old. Dyke produced an attractive utility bill to
      enter in the corrosionx contest. Congratulations, Dyke Parket, for a
      very good job.

      The Harman pellet stove factory got bought out or sold out?
