In my original pellet stove install they used a clean out T. Every few times when I was cleaning the stove I would just twist it off and empty it out. Two years ago we had our new Harmon pellet stove installed. The first year there was a slight smoky smell but we only used it for a month before the end of the season. This year at startup if the season the smoky smell was pretty bad so they came and they sealed up all our exhaust pipes including the T ( silicone all around it so I can't remove it).. Don't I need to empty that? Every time I did before there was quite a bit of ash in there so I'm assuming yes... So how do I get this silicone off so that I can empty this T again???
