Would you recommend any dis-assembly, cleaning, lubricating of the stoker mechanism. If so, is there a detailed description of the procedure available.

Thank you
Don

The stoker can be unbolted easiely from underneath (2 nuts) and it can be removed. The gearbox should not be disassembled and it not recommended.A good cleaning of the motor and a few drops of good motor oil should be all you need.

Hi Don,
The best thing to do is to remove the grate and clean under. Also reopen any air holes(1/8 drill bit). Clean the fan blades on the combustion fan and oil the motor. You will find two (2) oil holes facing upward on the motor. One is in the small electrical box mounted to the motor where the cord comes out(need to take off the cover). It is hat shaped and about half the size of your little finger nail. The other is directly in line with the first hole, but at the fan housing or the other end of the motor. Three or four drops of a 10 weight full synthetic oil will be fine or a very good spray lube. Your convection fan(s) have the same two holes, but if you don't have a spray lube you will need to stand on your head to get to them (sorry). Next drop you feeder motor, do not take it all the way off of the feeder. The studs on the feeder are very long so there is no need to take the motor off. Pull your carpet (shovel) out to check over. Now go back into the stove and clean throughly where that carpet rides. You will find fines. If by chance you take the feeder motor off, please mark it for reassembley. You can put it on ass backwards and you'll wonder why you the fire just doesn't burn right. Then your normal fly ash removel on the rest of the stove.
Good Luck,
