Wood-Fired Boiler must be cleaned regularly to maintain top efficiency. A good
practice is to establish a routine for the storage of fuel, care of the appliance, and firing techniques.
Turbulator assembly should be exercised every day of boiler usage when the unit is hot.
Ashes should be removed as needed. Recommend weekly.
Clean heat exchangers annually with a 2 inch bore brush or similar device.
Inspect refractory and nozzles every month to check condition.
Grease door hinges annually.
CLEANING THE HEAT EXCHANGER
Every day of boiler use, the turbulator assembly should be exercised. To perform this
maintenance, grasp the turbulator agitation lever on the upper left side of the Boiler (see Figures
11 & 12) and firmly raise and lower it several times. The turbulator arm will only move a short
distance (from the 6 o’clock to the 3 o’clock position) back and forth, and should be left as shown
in Figure 12, below.
When the turbulator agitation lever is moved back and forth, it clears the heat exchanger tubes of
any buildup of soot and ash that might have collected from the normal functioning of the Boiler
