i have been using a Flame King Boiler for the last 6 years. I tend to get a lot of smoke via the auger and coal bin. I do not have a optimal chimney design since I do have two elbows and tend to collect fly ash over time.
I issue I currently have is my paddle seems to have moved slightly away from the ash ring and burner head. It was never lined up very well but has worked for the last 6 years. Now the paddle barely touches the ash ring "gears". I would first expect it to be wear on the paddle, but I see very little wear. It looks like something has moved but I do not know how. Any suggestions. I live in Big Horn WY. email@example.com
