ALWAYS FOLLOW THIS PROCEDURE TO CLEAN THE
1. Remove back and top jacket panels of the Boiler.
2. Cut insulation to expose top clean out.
Remove 1/4” steel top cover plate and rear flue plate.
4. Disconnect the turbulator rod by removing the nut and
bolt which affixes it to the turbulator shaft.
5. Remove the turbulator arms by grasping the turbulator
connecting rod and lifting them out of the heat exchanger.
6. Using a steel brush, remove any soot and ash buildup from
the heat exchanger tubes and vacuum any ash
accumulated on the top of the heat exchanger.
7. Remove ash from the lower combustion chamber.
Replace 1/4” steel top cover plate and rear flue plate
making sure all connections are tight, sealed with a high
Before removing ashes, cease refueling and allow the fire to die down. Before opening the lower
combustion chamber door, ensure the fire in the boiler is completely extinguished.
Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tight fitting lid. The closed container of ashes
should be placed on a non-combustible floor or on the ground, well away from all combustible
materials, pending final disposal. If the ashes are disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise locally
dispersed, they should be retained in the closed container until all cinders have thoroughly cooled.
ASHES USUALLY CONTAIN LIVE DORMANT COALS, WHICH MAY BURN FOR MANY HOURS
AFTER A RECOGNIZABLE FLAME HAS DISAP¬PEARED. USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN
HANDLING AND DISPOSING ASHES.
HEAT EXCHANGER MAINTENANCE
The boiler Heat Exchanger must be thoroughly cleaned at least once a year. This consists of clean-
ing the Heat Exchanger tubes of accumulated soot and ash with a wire brush (Figs. 13 & 14)
