Cover the burner up and remove the roof vent to access the flue tube and use a wire brush with a long wire handle. (These are available at HVAC supply houses).
Push and pull the brush up and down a few hundred times to remove the rust. [emoticon]


What do you do about the spiral baffle??????????????? Doug

Once the roof vent is off, lift up the spiral baffle and clean it off.

When my burner gets covered with rust, I use a small hammer and tap on the flue to remove the loose rust that hasn't fell on the burner yet. Then I blow every thing off and all is well for a year or two.

A LOT of work when you can just blow it out in 5 minutes. Lets see, you have to remove the cover. Then you have to remove the screen cover(about 30 screws) and remove it. JUST TO REMOVE A SPIRAL BAFFLE??????????????. Then you have to reinstall the screen cover and seal it to the roof and then reinstall the top cover. AND this is hoping that they centered the refer and roof vent in the cabinet and you can easily get to the Spiral baffle if it is not aligned with the rectangular roof cut out. Doug
