Jerry can tell me why my stove blows (looking at the stove from the front at the door) warm air on the left, but the right is cold all the time? Seems strange I know but it does and has since the day I bought it last fall. Just curious.

Hi Timberman,
Depending on which side you blower is mounted. The division of air wash across the back and over the top is not equal, 50/50, so one side gets a little more air then the other. As far as blowing cold air, well that's kind of hard to judge. People will tell me that the heat coming out of the register is cold, yet their house will stay 70*. When your body temp. is 98* and your feeling air that is 80*, it feels cool.
Good questions,
Jer

Well the blower is mounted on the rear right (looking at the stove from the front at the door). I didn't measure the temp. of the air or anything, but it is like there is a line drawn straight through the stove. On the right the metal is even cool to the touch and on the left starting from the middle, the metal and the air is warm. The difference is vary noticeable. Thanks for getting back with me though.

It sounds like the fan is very effective at washing the heat off the stove on the one side, Try slowing down the fan with a reostat or block part of the inlet [about 1/3 to 1/2] of the fan with a piece of cardboard, see if this evens out the airflow and if it feels like a more even temperature.
