If its a new stove then the smell is just the paint/oils burning off. That should be over in a few hours.
Is it a sulfur smell?
That indicates the stove could possibly be venting in house.
How is the draft on the power vent?
It is an older stove I used it for a number of years, but not last year. I had to replace the vent pipe this year. Yes it is a sulfur smell. I don't have a meter to check the flow or pressure.I read a lot about it, but I never really figured out how to check the draft. Guess I got bad advice from guys who don't check draft on their stoves. It seems like I was getting some leakage at the joints in the pipe - I would not have expected that. My flue was relined when I got the stove - it is only 5 1/2 inches, so I guess it could be easy to push too much air and force it out of the stove? My barometric dampener never opened.
