Why does my pellet stove window get dirty?

Airflow. Poor airflow can cause even the best pellets to create a lot of smoke and soot. Many pellet stoves are designed so that the direction of airflow minimizes the amount of grime on the glass, but when vents near the doors become dirty the mechanism stops working, so the vents must be cleaned regularly.
