Is it a stoker? The burn plate with the little holes could be clogged with coal fines or maybe the combustion air needs adjustment.

Your idle feed/air/timer settings may need adjustment. Please tell us how the boiler is set currently.

Also, 10-15 % unburned coal in the ash is common during periods of low demand.

Call us at the shop 570-752-1811. Probably the idle air setting is to low if you just started noticing this. Also could just be the coal,

Geeze guys, you make it damn near impossible to consider other brands when I look for my stoker! Can't put a price on customer service. :up:

I told you they not only watch this forum everyday (including weekends), but they man the phones and take time for a lot of things (including pm's that we never even see to their customers).

I think its hillarious that their largest competitor is the total & complete opposite when it comes to customer service and/or parts and/or willingness to help their customer base. (I wont call out and name this competitor but many of you know first hand of whom i speak).
