    Air wash is at the bottom of the door glass. Open the door(stove off of coarse) and you'll see a tin strip that runs along the bottom. Use something thin to slide in and out.

    It is a small gap around one side of the glass that allows a small amount of air to be drawn across the back side of the glass keeping combustion byproducts from getting to the glass, ash eventually plugs this small gap up and stops the air flow.

    Usually it is along the bottom edge.

    If you have a compressor, remove the door by opening it and lifting it up. Take the door outside and hit it with air. If you do this with the stove running have someone video tape the results and post the video.
