mgrant, a sulfer smell almost always indicates a flue gas leak. Double and triple check your unit to ensure you have no clogged passages, no flue pipe leaks at the joints and you have a proper draft. Double check where your vent pipe goes into the chimney. Check any horizontal runs. 1/2 clogged can really lower your draft.

sorry forgot to add this. Also before you start taking your unit apart, scoop up a bucket of the coal and stick your head in and sniff it. You shouldn't smell anything. If you do, it's the coal.

Does Premium Coal from Tamaqua come from the Mammoth vein?

Well, I guess some of it does, they dont do a whole lot of mining in Tamaqua, their breaker is in South Tamaqua, but they purchase much of their coal from other suppliers.

I had my plumber come out and look at it after I had told him about the sulfur smell. He check the draft and indicated it was very strong (.08) he called AHS and discussed the draft and where it should be (.04 - .07). At that time the joints were not sealed on the flue pipes, my plumber said with the high draft he didn’t feel it necessary to seal them. I sealed them up myself and I have noticed a vast difference in the air quality (much improved) I still have a slight smell on some days but it has only been a week now. I purchased a Bacharach Draftrite Pocket Draft Gauge and check my draft daily (Plumber said it was .08) but I have not seen it rise above .05 since starting to check it. Prior to sealing up the joints it was around .03. My draft seems to be holding steady at .04 on most days but nothing less. Happy Thanksgiving to all and thank you for the post :)
