Glass on Pioneer

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 have two spots on the inside of the glass on my Pioneer that have bubbled and now there is a hole about the size of a dime.It is only through the inside portion of the glass. It looks like there are two pieces that form this glass. Jerry is this a concern and should I replace the glass before start-up. :?:

I would think as long as it's not thru the glass, it should work.
Mine is all clouded up after one season, I tried keeping it clean, but no luck. It still discolored.

I wouldn't worry too much. When they crack then it's time to change. The glass is really not glass, it's ceramic, that's why its layered.
Always use your CO alarms.
