Remote control


Ashes must be brushed from the firebox to the ash pan.

The combustion air input must be adjusted manually to match the heat setting of the stove.

If using a 50% mix of corn and wood pellets, the automatic ignition system may not work. This can be remedied by increasing the proportion of pellets in the mix.


The Lopi Leyden has a 'maintenance required' diagnostic system on the control board.


Check and clean the firepot


Clean the heat exchanger tubes, vacuum the hopper, remove fly ash from the upper baffles.

Sweep ash into ash pan and check if ash pan needs emptying. Clean the glass.


Remove the firebox back, clean the back of the stove and the vertical and horizontal exhaust ducts.

Clean the exhaust blower, convection blower and the venting system.

Check for air leaks around the door, glass and ashpan. Check the door alignment
