So here's my story.... Last season was my first ever burning a pellet stove. I'm using a 2007 Englander 10-CPM that came in the house I bought last year. At first I had a lot of issues... I didn't know how to clean the thing properly, the previous owner had installed the wrong exhaust blower, etc. It was a pretty steep learning curve but after a few months the thing was a beast. I used it as my primary heat source for a 2200 sqft tri-level split house and it would keep the place very comfortable with outside temps in the teens or twenties. The only problem I didn't manage to get solved was the glass sooting up. Even with the stove burning hot and breathing well the glass completely soots over after about 24 hours of use. It's a mix of dark black soot and lighter ash particles. The gasket around the glass is fraying and generally looks in bad shape. My question is, could this gasket be causing the door glass to soot over? I love the heat this stove puts out and it would be great if the glass would stay clean longer so it would add a little ambiance to the room as well.
