I'm curious as to what the temp in the house is? As for the back dial I know in the worst of it, I'm at all the heat I need on 4--oliverpower, same stove, I believe always ran about 8--fastcat, same stove--he'll have to jump in on that--point being--YOU will have to become familiar with that on YOUR stove--going into my 4th season, I never used the ash door vents, BUT, my neighbor fastcat always does--I've been playing with them open about 1/8 moon for 2 days--again--If it don't hurt anything, I'll leave them like that--ALWAYS----I have no thermo on my stove--I know--me bad--but I'd say if she is heating the house like you want--350* is perfect-- when it warms up---different ball game--when it gets real cold--different ball game--nothing real complicated--just different & you'll need to play with her again--NO, not the girlfriend--the damn stove
Sounds like you're doing fine my friend--keep us posted

won't be home till midnight. But my girlfriend
said its at 350 right now. I have the beads set at
22 like Fred said. I'm going to call her when she gets
home and find out what number she is at on the dial.
So should I always have the vents on the ash pan door
slightly open and keep them open? Or open them just
a bit for a little while and then close it?
