    I've noticed a lot of "fluffy" ash filling up the burnpot the seems to impact the flame. (Pictures posted)

    I have a Harman P68 Stove and in the pictures I'm burning Clean Supreme pellets on a stove temp at 3 and fan speed to high.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks - Brian

    It looks like its just a very high ash pellet. I have never heard of Clean Supreme, but I would beg to differ with their name!:)
    Edit: Are you sure that it is not "Green Supreme?"....If so....that is New England Wood Pellet in a different bag, and your post would seem to coincide with other members posts here.

    I just had my P61 installed and it came with a bag of New Englands (I pretended that I had not already compiled a list of pellets to avoid thanks to this forum-trying to be a nicer person this year ;) ).
    Anyhow, the picture you have looks very similar. I wound up pulling the ash down into the ash pan after a few hours.

    Looks familiar to me too. Burned NEWP the second year I had my stove; bought them from my dealer. So much ash it sometimes snuffed the fire out. If I was around I'd just help the ash into the ash pan. Needless to say I haven't purchased them since.

    Just use your Harman tool and scrape the ash into the burnpot. I usually scrape mine twice a day.

    I have just used up a ton of better quality pellets and went back to some higher ash pellets and back to scraping couple times a day and the ash bin filling fast:( Weather is still running more than 10 degrees below normal. 8 below this morning. Just used the last sack of the third ton yesterday.
