Hi all, I need some help.
I've already sent an e-mail to LL, but my impatience is kicking in. I wanted to hear/read what you all think. I have two issues, one big, one small. Here goes.
1) This year with in the last month or so, started dumping hot coals off the grate. This has never happened in the 6 years with the stove. I contacted my dealer, who said he believes the coal is too wet/frozen this year, and might be the issue. The Blaschak coal is very wet this year, but i'm not convinced. I've adjusted the max down from 40 to 30, and it's still doing it, like I never even adjust the thing. All the fans are working, I draft between .04 and .07 depending on the burn. I have been overshooting it seems more this year. The stove/coaltrol is set at 67 during the late night and day. At 3:30pm, its set to go up to 69. By 7pm, the house is at 71, and the stove is still crankin' away. It eventually calms down, but it takes hours. Questions, thoughts, etc, anything is appreciated.
2) I need to replace my upper door gasket. I have the gasket, what is the recommended adhesive? What is the recommended procedure, other than, remove gasket, clean old adhesive and gasket out, and install new?
Again, thanks for your time. All in all the stove has been great, this is the first year i've had any sort of what I would consider major issues. I'm up in Michigan, and at the end of December, we had alot of bad weather and power outages, I'm wondering if a transient cooked my stove control board. I don't want to randomly replace parts.
