New here guys and I'm learning a lot ! From my reading I see that most of the time the problem is not cleaning a stove enough or the answer to most problems is to clean the stove . My question is can you over clean your stove ? Do more harm than good ? My main reason for asking is I wire brush my heat tubes and just about anything else I can ( its a soft wire brush ) can I hurt the tubes or anything else for that matter ? Also I normally have my stove cleaned at the end of year by the company that put it in and this past season for the first time in 4 years they spray painted the inside ( the tech I had this year says we always do that ) I'm cose to being able ( I think ) to do the end of year myself . So does the paint go on everything ? They even sprayed the probe . Do I spray the heat tubes and shields ? I have a cb1200 if that makes a difference . Thanks again for all the help guys !
