I replaced a Jensen wood furnace with this and I must say that I wish I would have switched to coal years ago. Anyway, I'm wondering how you know that you are burning the coal efficiently. I have about an inch of ash on the grate before it drops to the pan. Is that correct? As far as the flame goes, should it be contained in the triangle area. I have flames that are going up outside of that area. Am I feeding too much coal? The manual is not very good in showing the proper burn. I have a stove thermometer on the side of the stove and I am staying around 350-400*. Does that sound right?
I am new to this forum but I have learned a lot from searching other post. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
here is the manual in pdf for that stove if you need any info there is a lot of post on here or i maybe able to help out I'm burning on also
a couple of thing to check is on the combustion blower that it has the restricter plate on it and its set i run my combustion blower 24 /7 better burn and it helps keep the grates from warping on the control box picture you can also see how i set up my restricter plate, http://www.speedfreaksgarage.com/jeff/s ...
