    Hello,

    We bought a house with a 25-PDVC already installed & I'm doing a cleaning on it (Pretty filthy - I don't think it was ever done).
    I cleaned out the combustion blower & replaced gaskets, but the manual also says to remove the burn pot & replace that gasket.

    The instructions & diagram in the manual don't give much help in how to actually get the burn pot out, and I don't see any obvious screws or bolts holding it in.

    How does the burn pot come out?

    Thanks!

    Never had mine out of my newer PDV, although there are 2 bolts inder the front ash lip...according to the diagram it looks like you loosen...or take them out...I would give them a good shot of PB nutblaster..."A Great product to loosen bolts"....Check with Englander support..they are more than great with help.

    Hrm...Took those 2 bolts out but the thing doesn't budge.
    I guess I'll try Englander support.

    It was those 2 bolts under the ash lip - Thing was just really stuck in there. Gave it a few whacks and it finally popped loose.

    Thanks for the help!

    Yep, when all else fails, get a bigger hammer (and/or read the directions).

    Fletcher, go to England stoves web site and get the DVD on how to run and maintain your stove.
    It is a good video for reference even though the guys thumb nail in the video is hacked a bit and grosses out my wife.
