I have a s260 and it always ashes to the rear of the pan closest to the blower. It seems to me that the grate was pretty good size and I'm curious if this is normal or if I have clinkers? If I do have clinkers blocking the grate how can I tell and how do I get rid of them? Thanks

Clinkers? Your worried about clinkers? That thing will chew up and spit out football size clinkers like watermelon seeds. Yes to the dark dust in the corner, they all do it.
All is good. :)
