    I have a whitfield advantage peelet stove. As of late it has been burning a lazy flame on heat setting number 1, often leading to the flame going out. I have given the stove a good cleaning, removesd ash trap baffles etc. I also turned up the auger speed. I have also noticed the glass is very dirty and much harder to clean then it usuall is. Any suggestions?

    Try adjusting your air damper. It seems like you don't have enough airflow into the stove.

    Have you checked you vent pipe lately? Could be partially clogged.

    i cleaned it out, but didn't clean out where it comes out of the stove. There is also a 45 a few inches away from where it attaches to the stove. Good suggestion!

    I also noticed that one of the ash trap vents were capped off. Is this normal? Should they both be open?

    you may want to try cleaning all the way to the exhaust blower and the blower housing as well.
