I've had my stove about 5 years now, and whenever I run it, the glass always gets dirty very quickly. Anyone know how to fix this? I think I may just have my settings a bit off, but if I can get the right settings without having to guess and check for a month, that'd be Ideal.

Easy to fix it is called glass cleaner and a rag
turn down the feed a bit or turn the draft fan up a bit.
Does your door have a gasket across the bottom of the glass? Usually that's where your airwash is. If so cut the gasket across the bottom!
I have one in my shop. The door gets sorted up within a couple of hours. I just use that stove occasionally, so i never really tried to figure it out. I assume its just a design issue.
