I have set my ashing at 130 since Sunday night with the 5 degree differentialit was at 120 leading up to this point. Upon the initial firing I had a really good bed of red coal going. Since then I know I have a fire but I can not see any red in there even when the blower is running. It looks dead. Temps say otherwise. I am dropping 80 to 100 pounds a day through it and I am getting mostly unburnt or partially burnt coal in my ash pan. I picked up 6 bags of Blaschack today, I am going to let my hopper run low and re fill with that and see if there is any difference in performance. I checked my manometer pipe and tube, both are clear. I have a draft of .02 now which is an improvement. If I am home tomorrow due to bad weather I am going to open all the windows and heat the great outdoors and see if I don't have a decent base fire going. The last thing that Darren mentioned to me was to re wire the asher to the blower so it only runs when the blower does. Lastly, I still have my old Extrol 30 if I have my plumber run that as well as the 60 I have now would that be sufficient amount for expansion or do I just need to go up to the 105? Thanks yet again, Ken
what are your outside temps there?
