Hi guys. I have an older St. Croix Hastings stove. It must be about 15 years old. It's been a work horse and has served me well. I have always had some issues with the versagrate motor being loud. I've dealt with that, but the stove is about 5 feet from me in my living room, so when it's on, between the fan and the motor, it can be kind of loud. Also, since last year I've noticed the glass ashing up faster than normal. I've cleaned the stove and done the leave blower method. I took the stove outside this fall and took it apart and blew it out. Took the fans out and blew everything out. I'm pretty sure I got as much of the ash out as I could. My flame pattern is very good, but the fact that after a couple of hours, the glass is already cloudy is making me wonder if there's another issue. I know I will probably be told it's an air issue, or the stove isn't clean, but I don't know what else i can do to clean this thing. I also replaced the combustion fan this year hoping that would help. No difference. I'm debating trying a comfortbilt HP22N, but just don't want to regret it considering overall, my Hastings has been a good machine. Any thoughts or suggestions?
