Channing III Summer Maintenance

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

I bought a Channing III and it worked great this year, Sorry if this has already been asked. I am ending my heating season soon and want to clean and do maintenance so I have another great heating season in the fall. Does anyone have a cleaning and maintenance procedure for my stove? since I am new any information would be great I know I have to clean the fly out but I want to due maintenance on the rest of the stove and I cannot seem to find any take apart or maintenance guides is there instructions I can download anywhere? I got paint to make it look new but I want to properly maintain the moving parts.
Thank you in advance for any help

This is the Alaska section but more "State of Alaska"
But it's not that important.
If it was as easy as burning oil, everybody would be burning coal.
Forum reality, If you ask wheres a good steak house? You will be informed that what you really want is pork chops.
Enjoy it for what it is worth.
