I would start a very small fire for a day or so and inspect the inside of the stove to make sure the LPS has evaporated with the first low-temp burn before turning up the fire.
Just remember to burn the stove off after painting it before you fire it up full bore you will fill the house up with a lot of stinky paint smoke wife will besauerzbr wrote:After running my LL Pocono for the first season, going to shut it down soon and want to go over it correctly in preparation for next season. Basically, going to go over the entire stove, stove pipe, chimney and clean it all out very well of all fly ash. Clean window, empty any leftover coal, lube down as much as I can with wd-40 and finally cover with sheets so to keep any dampness off it during the warm summer months.
I have a cap to close off the outside combustion air feed and chimney entry to basement.
I'm also planning to find some of that self adhering gasket material and apply to mounting surfaces of both blower fans and on underside of stove top plate for noise dampening purposes.
Ash pans - I've already high temp siliconed the weld areas to prevent dirt from falling through, going to high temp paint the entire surface to prevent future rusting. Starting to look terrible.
Anything I'm missing? Anything I should be doing with the stoker mechanisms?
I'm really happy with this stove and once fall comes, just want to uncover it and light it off.
Appreciate your comments! Thanks!
Where can I find LPS-3? Never heard of this before?
If you were really serious, you could remove the fans, and stoker assemblies
