    :question: I have a 55 SHP 10. I am running it on 2 or 3 heat setting. The glass soots up. I clean it everyday and the next day when I empty the stove, I clean it again. Is it from the heat setting or is it the nature of the beast?

    Wrong forum - but yeah, nature of the beast. One damp paper towel per day when you clean the ash off the burn plate.

    Hmm, I have the same stove but I don't seem to have any problem with mine sooting up. Maybe I got lucky last night as I just hooked the stove up yesterday morning ;-).

    They seem to soot up more on the lower settings. Inefficient combustion.

    Can you turn up the low air settings?

    My stove soots up the glass faster on the lower settings. Modifying the LFF and LBA settings should help keep the glass cleaner for a longer period of time. It just may the brand of pellets are going to burn dirty regardless of what you do with the settings.

    If my stove DIDN'T have sooted glass I'd think it was broken! ;-)
