    Greene Supreme are the exact same pellet as "New England"....you will probably get the same poor results.

    What other pellets are available in your area?

    Walmart here only has one brand TreBio $4.96 a bag , the first ones I bought are very dark almost a green color. They burn ok but not very hot and soooo much ash its not funny :(
    The next bunch they got are very light colored and are very hot and very little ash. Same brand but a much better pellet, even better that the Eastern embers.

    I find Green Supremes to be quite ashy as well. The heat is OK but a bit dirty. I just started a thread on Northeast Pellets. If you have them in your area I'd try them.

    i'm a little bit confused
    after we go back to the AMBIANCE the glas is dirty too
    i replace the door and glas gasket b4 and add a 90` elbow at the end of the exe pipe
    at the moment we have behind the stove a 45` then 1food straight horizontal and the 90` open end to the ground
    on the same outside temp we burn 1 bag now a day (b4 2bags in 3 days)

    with confused x-mas wishes
    fred

    I.m not an expert. and I don't know a thing about your stove , but looking at the pic of how black the glass is looks like the fire needs a little more air.

    Don't have your stove either. There was another thread from someone with black glass issues as well that might be worth reading through. http://www.hearth.com/talk/threads/black-glass.101460/ It seems like more of a problem than pellets, even though I personally think NEWP are horrible.
    Another thread on your stove that might be helpful http://www.hearth.com/talk/threads/drolet-eco-45-weak-blower.100385/ One of the experts on this site doesn't seem to like your brand of stove, didn't explain why. I see you just got this stove Nov. 2012. Did it ever burn clean? It it never did, less likely it is a cleanliness issue, although burning NEWPs there could be hidden ash somewhere. Sorry can't be very helpful.

    Don't have your stove either, however, your pics of the gasket are interesting. I don't see an air wash anywhere which could explain why the glass is so dirty. The pellets as everyone else has been saying are high ash in any stove so I don't see an issue there.

    Just looked up specs for stove at northern tool lists an air wash "to keep the glass clean". Wish I could help more.

    thx folks for your input will try more "air"

    the old glass gasket was only on the topside from the glass but the manual say complete around.

    on the door gasket when the door was closed you can push a postcard in :(
