Ordered a manometer with it. Last night it was clear of ash good fire going when I went to bed. Checked it at 2 she was almost cold. Had to put wood on. It has always been my experience that they would draw better when cold. Maybe where my house is, or it is not tall enough or something. This is about the 4th night in a row. Some of the coolest weather we have had, never had trouble keeping a fire till now. Here is the thing, this stove has a plate in it that when installed it makes the gases go a different route to the flue. Must be a double jacket deal. It will work fine if that plate is not in, but it will not put out near the heat. I think they are cooling down too much before they get to the chimney.
