Re: how to remove carpet glue from wood stove
I sincerely hope that you've withheld payment until the glue issue is resolved, otherwise you're pretty much screwed about having the morons do anything about it.
Aside from needless name calling of the inept installers, the label on the can of glue should clearly state how to clean up both wet and dry glue, usually mineral spirits, but don't quote me on that, read the label for yourself.
On a cold stove, you can work with mineral spirits without worry of ignition. Once you've got the majority of the glue off, you can wash the stove down with soap and water to remove the remnants of the mineral spirits. After that, fire up the stove to dry it out and you won't have any rust issues on bare metal parts. Mineral spirits will not harm painted or enamel finishes that are resistant to heat.
In lieu of finding a suitable alternative, the carpet morons owe you a new stove. Again, I sincerely hope they have not been paid or you will be dealing with this completely on your own.
