Hello. try striking the arm crisply with a very small hammer, from all different angles..... that shock should break the clinkers away without damage to the arm... let me know how that goes.
If that fails you will need to call someone, tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest city in that case I will look for a well rated pellet stove tech to do that for you.
