I recently purchased my coal trol thermostat for my reading juniata stove. The house has finally gotten up to the temperature and the coal trol is doing a wonderful job of holding the house at this temperature.
In the manual it says the fire should only be 1-2" away from the of the grate. Now that the stove is up to temperature and it is holding steady my fire is back from the about 4". Its a very small fire since it's not calling for much heat, but how do I get that fire to stay 1-2" from the end of the grate as the manual would like?
i am no expert,but I think the 1-2" rule only applies as a max. limit,if you push for more,you will send unburned coal over the grate.Since you have reached your level of comfort for heat,it is normal for there to be the 4" amount as the fire calms.
