New (To ME) HotBox. Tips and Tricks?

12v burner or 110v? I would just check the electrodes for wear, clean the burner gun assembly, adjust the air band, check the fuel pressure, see what burner nozzle it’s running, eliminate the thermostat and run the smallest gph fuel nozzle you can on it so you can get some life out of the firebox before you torch through the baffle.


Thanks brother Perez. I’m going to my local dealer this morning for orientation and a good checkup
