Thank you all again for your help , may God truly bless each and every one of you. I with the help of Greg did get a fire started last night thank goodness for phones as Greg gave me play by play on what to do. Glen called to check on me right when he got off the road and also walked me through some more steps along with found out that I have family from Reading so I am kinda like a hometown boy !! hehehe. So what has happened since last night I know you are all wondering.
First I had to little of fire maybe 4 inches dead coal , 1 inch of fire and a whole lot of ash and unburnt coal. Then I had 4 inches of dead coal and a grate full of fire falling into ash pan ( thank you Glen for your advice at this time
) I started seeing blue flame dancing by the firetrap and became alarmed but Glen assured me it was just gas burning off the coal because the dead coal never was burning just blue flame on top of it . I adjusted again and I now have 4 or so inches of unburnt coal ,4 or so inches of fire and 3-4 inches of ash. my house has gone from around 52 deg to 62 deg in about 12 hours I am keeping hopper 2/3rd full and watching it. It does tend to dig from the center so i keep pushing coal that way but here is the clincher !! I am at work !! I have left it alone at home so I am starting to have more faith in it. It did fine over the night and I hope to get home to a house at 68 deg which is where I have my thermostat set at.
Thanks for the new coal locations what a blessing this is because Lebanon is just really right down the road from me. Also I will pull hopper this weekend and reset it just because I want everything right. I pray that I have finally crossed the hill on all these issues and I have God above to thank for leading me to all you fantastic people. I again from the bottom of my heart thank each and everyone of you for all you have down ., I will keep you posted and again God Bless each and every one of you !!
Love in Christ Jesus
