So i've been trying to get the new stove running for a couple days now and no luck. I can't seem to get any draft out of the chimney. It's 6" SS for about ten feet above about 7 feet of black stove pipe. Tee coming off the stove and goes directly up to the second floor, then once in SS I have a 15 degree offset, to a 18" straight (now diagonal), to another 15 degree offset to bring it back to vertical, then through the roof.
I've even tried putting a plumbing propane torch inside the stove to warm it up in hopes I could get the draft started - still nothing but a smokey dead mess. Using brown paper bags, birch bark, nothing seems to want to take off. Any thoughts on what could be going wrong? I'm about to yank the stove out and switch it with another old Jotul wood stove to see if a different stove will pull draft.
