Re: Tips needed for cleaning out a Pellet Stove
For the glass on the door, I don't recommend using a scrap=r or razor blade, as that can scratch the tempered glass which could cause it to shatter unexpectedly when heated.
You can buy a product specifically for cleaning stove windows. I believe it is a dilute sodium hydroxide (lye), similar to oven cleaner but not quite as strong. (It's not an acid, it's a base/alkali.) Wear rubber gloves, eye protection, and a respirator or at least a dust mask, just as you would when using oven cleaner. Breathing overspray is very painful.

The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
