Installation questions

I just bought a back vent Pocono and am in the process of installing it.
I am installing it in the basement.
It sits on a concrete floor and is backed up against a concrete block wall.

I have a quesiton.
Since the vent comes out the bottom it passes very near all the motors and power cords.
In some cases the clearances are so close there appears to be nothing I can do about it but I can put a heat shield up above the vent which would shield the feeder motor and the feeder blower and the thermostat.
Is this necessary or not?

I have put a hanger on the hopper which keeps the cords away from the vent.

First thanks for your purchase. The cords are the only thing that you need to worry about, and it sounds like you have cured that already. The is no concern with the motors. When you burn the stove you will notice that theres not a whole lot of lost heat from the pipes.
Thanks again,
Jerry :)

I recently purchased and installed a Pocono rear vent stove, the assembly and hookup went very smooth. I had a few questions about stove pipe and the barometric draft damper. I called Jerry at Leisure Line and was pleasantly surprised that he answered his phone. (something many people don't do these days) Not only did he answer his phone he spent 20 to 30 minutes discussing my installation and stoker stoves in general. Jerry is a wealth of knowledge and was a great help to me. The stove works great!! Jerry, Thanks for your help and a great product!
