Connecticut Pellet Stove Service

Routine Maintenance

Some of the routine maintenance tasks typically performed by Connecticut pellet stove owners include:

  • Daily inspection and periodic cleaning of the burn pot to keep air inlets open. Frequency of cleaning depends on model of pellet stove and type & grade of pellets.

  • Emptying of the ash drawer is recommended before starting new fires and occasionally during stove operation. Ash removal frequency depends on pellet type and stove design. Typically once or twice a week during the burning season, less often with some new designs.

  • Ash trap chambers should be vacuumed out before the burning season and periodically during. Ash traps are generally located behind the fire chamber and prevent excess fly ash in the exhaust from exiting the stove. Ash traps are easily accessed by owners on some pellet stove designs, professional cleaning service is required on others.

  • Cleaning of glass viewing windows. Air wash systems are built in to most pellet stoves. Air wash systems blow air currents across the viewing window to keep soot buildup off the glass. Standard glass cleaner can be effective in some situations while ceramic glass cleaner is needed in others. Glass should be completely cooled before cleaning.

  • Hoppers should be emptied occasionally and checked for accumulated sawdust materials.

  • Heat exchangers need to be scraped and cleaned. Some pellet stove models have built in heat exchanger cleaners which usually consists of a rod that can be moved back and forth. The rod scrapes the tubes clean inside the stove. Some pellet stove heat exchangers need to be accessed and cleaned by professionals.
