shutting down stoker for a few days

PostBy: OBI307 On: Sun Feb 12, 2012 8:46 pm

I need to shut down my stoker for a few days Keystoker Hearth 90. Will I have to clean it as good as I do when I shut down in the spring? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Should I just vaccum it out? Will fire back up in 4-5 days. Getting some work done in basement. I dont want to shut it down but have to. Just want it to run as good as it is now when I fire it back up. Thanks

Sounds like the perfect time to do a mid-winter cleanout. Yes, I would vacuum it out, and clean the flue pipes.... Don't forget to clean the fan blades and oil the motors...
