just cleaned my stove for 2nd time[every 2 weeks] bought it middle last month. had a crapload of ash that I didn't have the 1st time... been expirimenting for a while with feed rates/room/stove temp.. feed rate 2 for a few days, then feed rate 3 so on and so on.. could this back/forth causes the abundance of ash? have a ton of Energex hardwood pellets so don't think that was the cause. also the Igniter compartment was pilled up with ash when I loosend the thumb screws and removed the plate. lot of ash just fell out but I don't think I put my finger in there last time to remove any ash when I cleaned it. I didn't see any ash pile 1st time so it just may have been laying in there and just built up last 2 weeks. I assume it's normal for the igniter area to be loaded with ash after couple weeks of constant burning?
