Anyone have any Ideas on how to keep the flapper connected to the blower from becomming stuck?   Seems to come from creosote.

Slide a paper clip onto the flapper which will raise it slightly. I have had one on mine for 2 years. It also helps to keep the fire from going out during warmer weather. Hope this helps.

Mine done that a few times, but I used the paper clip idea. Haven't had it stick since.
