The Englander 25-pdv needs regular maintenance to prevent problems arising, particularly paying attention to carbon build up around the front of the auger and its tube which can bind the auger, cause the lower auger motor to overheat, and create a squeaking noise in operation.
The standard brass louvre and door trim raises the appearance of this stove above utilitarian.
Scrape burn pot clean.
Every Three Days:
Inspect burn pot, clean wear plate, clean out air holes.
Clean ash from behind the baffle plate, scrape creosote from the front of the auger and tube (this can bind the bottom auger and cause a squeaking noise). Remove ash build up from flue pipes.
Remove and clean the burn pot, replace the gasket. Clean the combustion blower and its tube, replace gasket. Inspect flue and clean if necessary.
Every Two Years:
Replace the door gasket.
