DVC-500 Cleaning End of Season

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.

Purchased a dvc-500 last fall. Need help with proper cleaning of stove for the end of season.
I have read about cleaning the stove with baking soda and water after vacuming the stove.
Also is it safe to spray interior of stove to prevent rust? ( spray with what)
What about direct vent stove pipe?
Also been told to burn a light in stove to preventing rusting.
Any info will help
