    Hello

    My friend has an Osburn 2400i fireplace insert wood burning stove with circulating fan. It is a nice stove, but when a log came within approx 1/2" of the inside glass it left a round burn mark.

    Is there any way to get rid of this mark without spending the $140.00 for a new door glass?

    A little hard to see in the pic below, but I am sure you guys know. It is a faint round creasote color mark that does not come off with glass cleaner.

    Tell them to dampen a paper towel or some newsprint, then dip it into the wood stove ashes and clean the glass with the ash. Ash is gently abrasive and does a good job of glass cleaning.

    Try the ash trick like begreen suggested. It might not remove all of it because I have the same problem dead center of the glass and along the edges. Mine is not noticeable when the stove is burning but when the stove is cold you can see it. Over time the glass is going to get hazy anyway

    +1 on ash trick. 3 years running and never have anything I couldn't easily wipe away using this method.

    I have the same unit. The ash trick works better than any other cleaners I've tried. Three seasons, and something like 10 cords of wood and my glass is still clean. That should come out. Clean it while the glass is cool.

    For really stubborn spots try glass cook top cleaner.
