Figures I would guess wrong and pull it out. Easy fix. Otherwise all is well, my first day running a stoker and no issues other than freaking out a bit when the manufacturing oil started to burn off. Only lasted an hour like you said, Wiz. I do still have a way to go to really master the controls but it's a way better future than 4 tanks of oil and 4 to 6 cords of wood. Plus I am much happier supporting our local economy rather than top tier business elite, dirty politicians, and foreign countries who only love us when we write them big fat checks. End soapbox.
