Hello everyone, I am the proud owner of a Keystoker KA-6 that was installed 10/1/12. I must say that the stove has been a joy to own and operate but I have developed a couple of problems lately.
problem # 1. Major burnt ash buildup on the burning grate that won't push off into ash pan and fresh unburnt coal spills over the sides of the grate!
I see more of this when it is cold out and the boiler is calling for heat. I called keystoker and they said to make an air adjustment, I tried this without success. The burnt coal that does go into the ash pan looks like bricks, almost sticking or welded together burnt coal.
