Just curious what's the partial plate thats covering the combustion blower for? Increase air flow?. I don't have that on mine just curious. With all this talk about the gasket on the back of the grate im going to check mine i don't recall having one with my stove when i purchased it.
The 1/2 moon plate is used on the Hyfire II and the Econo / Lil Heater ,It is used to limit the air into the stove . The gasket is installed during assembly of the feeder . Dave[/quote]
Im taking the grate off as we speak i had to assemble my stove when i had it shipped to me from Jerry a few years back i might have installed it i dont recall will see soon. Also why would you want to limit the air flow on those models but not the pioneer and ponco?. I would think you would want max air flow . Thanks edit yes as i recall the feeder is all one unit when i got it now that im looking at it. I'll check it anyway because i usually lift the grate up enough to get the end of my vacuum cleaner in there every season to suck up the fine particles of ash etc maybe i sucked it up its probably disintegrated by now. I have this gasket i just bought to use on both doors of my pioneer and have some extra would this work? Yes there was a gasket on there didnt see it at first needs to be replaced anyway.
