Everyone on here will help you out the best we can. Don't give up, it might be something simple. but the CO problem is definitely a concern. I've been running my Keystoker for 10+ years with no problems. it might be something simple in an adjustment, draft setting, blower setting. etc...
Maybe post a pic of your setup.
I see you're in Dundee, is that up by Keuka Lake? my sister has a summer home up off the lake in Pulteney, maybe when I come to check on the house or something, i could check your system if your still having problems.
I turned the idle screw up two turns and it really seems to have helped, although the temp has dropped so I would imagine that will help with the draft. I won't give up, I just don't want to die...or kill my daughter or our pets! I am most definitely going to invest in a digital CO detector and use the others as back up. I will post some better pictures of my set up tomorrow when I get a chance. It is actually pretty great. It runs off a thermostat and directs the heat up a vent pipe (what I meant by direct vent) directly into the rest of the house.
Dundee is on Keuka and Seneca Lake. I overlook Seneca Lake and am about 10 minutes from Watkins Glen....beautiful area. Let me know if you are ever in the area, you're welcome to come check it out. I know that there are features that I am not using on this stove that I would love to learn. There is actually a secondary blower up in the attic along with a distribution box that I could probably be using.
