Hang in there buddy. Willis
yes my stove is outside in a tin shed, its a store bought furnace but a homemade hook up, i live in a double wide and cant hook to the register vents so i came through a spare bedroom window at the end of the house (so the air is blown/forced all down the house) all i have is a 6" chimney pipe (what stove calls for) and a isolated 6" duct pipe bringing the hot air into the house, the return air is outside air, i know this sounds jury rigged and it is BUT ive been burning wood like this for years (new stove this year but same set up) and its always worked fine. but this coal is giving me fits
the thermostat in the house shut off the blowers this morning and about 1/2 hr latter the inside temp in the tin shed was over 200* the top of the stove above the firebox was way over 350* and it smells like the stove is burning up
below are some pictures of what i got...
also the air coming out of the duct pipe in the house is over 250*
fire with door open
this is the top of the stove above the fire box, this is where the blower blows the air between the fire box and the tin outer cover the thermometer tip is at least 2 1/2 to 3" above the fire box and it went right over 350* in less than a minute, (the fan had just shut off at the time) PS the rusty pipe you see behind it is the hot air not chimney
