    Looking to coat my Harmon Exhaust Sensor Probe. Only to hopefully have less "dust" accumulate on it, less cleaning and therefor better efficiency without having to shut down the stove so much for cleaning the probe... Anyone ever try this?

    Why? I only clean mine once a year. Shouldn't need it any more than that.

    I do not recommend.Any coating that would stand up may affect the readings too much.

    If you are having to clean it often perhaps your pellets are not burning as they should?

    My second season using my P68 full time. I leave the burn rate where Harmen recommends and adjust the other 2 settings as needed, usually in constant burn mode. I am using 5-6 ton per heating season in northern CT. I notice a difference of burn "dust" that each type of pellets put out. Surprisingly, soft wood has less dust than hardwood. But softwood has left more of the baked on creosote in the burn pot ramp and sides. In any case, I am always cleaning the stove/ESP about every two weeks. One time my stove started burning like poo towards the end of this 2 week cleaning. When I check the ESP, it is coated in a layer of dust, which I figure can't be good for the probe to get a accurate reading. This same dust also coats the inside, which I would think also somewhat insulates the stove, affecting its heat extraction efficiency.
    If I'm doing something wrong, I don't know. Always open to suggestions.
