Pellet Stove Smoking in house following chimney cleaning
Hi - we had our chimney cleaned last year by some pretty shady looking characters. After they left our pellet stove started sending smoke into our house every time we lit it. It didn't stop after a few minutes or a few tries and only got worse. We called them back and they said it was nothing that they "did" - sure - and just couldn't figure out what the problem is. Any ideas? My husband called one local place and they want $300+ to come out and clean it. We really don't have that kind of money to spend right now. Hubby usually can fix anything but he seems to be intimidated by the "seals" in the stove - something about silicone caulking or something that holds things together? Please excuse me for not knowing any of the actual terms. Thanks!
