I'm purchasing a fireplace insert.
I know that they need to be cleaned each year so I would like mine to
slide in and out on castors with with breaks, or maybe some kind of lift
mechanism that would disengage the wheels completely.
Is that a good idea? If so, where can I look for a contraption like that?
If youre talking about a stove insert into a fireplace , what on the
outside of the stove needs to be cleaned ? Once the insert is
installed , youll still be able to clean out the inside . Im lost as
to why youd want to remove it for cleaning ? Or is it you want access
to clean out the Exhaust Liner that youll be putting in for the
Mine is installed with an attached stainless steel liner going up the brick
chimney. Cleaning involves taking a few parts out of the stove, lining the stove
with newspaper, running the brush down the liner, then brushing off a shelf
inside the stove and disposing of the ash in the newspaper. I haven't removed
the stove since I installed it several years ago.
It was an obvious joke by the OP or he has some obsessive compulsive
disorder around cleanliness. I've an insert and follow the same
process as Bob F. After installing the bastard the last thing I want
to do is remove it once a year - specially to disconnect and reconnect
the liner to the unit.
