If using corn without pellets as fuel in the Quadrafire Castile, the corn won't automatically reignite unless it has some wood pellets mixed in. This means it's necessary to keep the stove on.
To keep the stove running, set the thermostat to maximum. Set the stove itself to low or medium so that the thermostat doesn't get tripped.
Empty and clean the burn pot
Empty ash pan, clean ash from firebox, clean window glass
Clean beneath the heat exchanger, check the door latch and gasket, clean the heat exchanger and drop tube, clean the hopper.
Clean the blowers, the exhaust passages and the flue. Clean out the firebox,
