The fire pot on my Quadrafire pellet stove is fused shut.

Customer Question

The fire pot on my Quadrafire pellet stove is fused shut. Not jammed. It seems rusted. This happens every year. I don't know how to open it. I can't open it. My husband is not longer available to help. How do you unfuse it?

what you could do is heat the outside rim with a torch and then give it a tap with a hammer all around and give it a try
