    Definitely they do! Possibly get your hands on a new comb blower, switch it out and try it.......whats abt intake dampers being clogged or sticking as well?

    I know some of you mentioned about the ash in my stove. In some spots it is really dark and thick black and others it is lighter and more fine. Does this give me a hint at all?

    Changed out the two combustion blower gaskets last night. Seemed to be buring ok this morning. We will see how long it lasts before clogging.

    Well, got through about a day and a half without a clog, but then, it clogged yet again. I guess perhaps the combustion blower will be next. I guess $200 is cheaper than a new stove.

    I know this is a long shot but if I read this posting right, you have this stove flued up a chimney right? Is the stoves flue duct go all the way to the top? If not, this could cause a back pressure that doesn't allow the stove to burn right. Just a shot in the dark.
