Sadly, I don't know the provenance of the stove at all. It was in the house when we bought it 6 years ago, and this is the first year I've fired it up. I'm still early in the learning curve, but we're loving the heat it puts out.

Just put in my newly designed Hitzer 354 Radiant Model.

This was my first redesign of a stove inside and out. Heat shields have been added to both sides of the stove in the form of plated diamond wire mesh. The shields do not block any of the heat that would normally be radiated by the stove but keep small hands from being burned. The older style Hitzer Logo has been installed on the damper handle. The firebox has been redesigned to allow for an extra 25 pounds of coal. The doors and over the fire air inlets have been repainted with high temp silver by the wife and the rest of the stove was painted with a new type of hi gloss hi temp black paint that I like much better then Rutland. Quite happy with our new stove and plan on doing a few more upgrades along the way to make it even more efficient.

Thanks,
Glenn

This is my Keystoker Koker that was installed on Monday. I had the duct's tied into my existing heat pump ductwork. I had them install a domestic hot water coil, and a coal trol. I had it fired up for three days but had to shut it down this morning due to a high carbon monoxide level in the house. We are thinking that it is an issue caused by poor drafting conditions when the wind blows. I have a chimney sweep coming next week to look at it and to make sure everything is safe. We had installed five hardwired CO/Fire alarms in the house and it was a good thing. One in the basement, one on the first floor, and three in the bedrooms. I used to four gas meter from the fire company and found a CO Reading around 25 PPM when I went downstairs. I ordered a Dwyer Mark II Manometer to watch the draft from here on out. I may have to look into a vaccu-stack. The chain is attached to a scale to measure precisely how much coal goes in and ash comes out. It must be an engineer thing. If anyone has one please let me know if if solved your problem. Please feel free to comment on the instillation. I thought Keystoker did a great job.

CO detectors...gotta love them...what would of been the story if you hadn't had them?

Hope you find the resolution of your insufficient draft problem.

Looks like you have a fairly new house there, and since you were heating w/ a HP you never notice this...maybe your house is just a wee bit too tight for combustion make-up air. If so you may need to allow for some air by cracking a window or even make a dedicated make-up inlet somehow.

You did the right thing by shutting down till the problem is resolved. :)

I would second that. It would be the first thing I would suspect. Consider a fresh air inlet.

Very nice neat installation.

how tall is your stack? being an exterior stack it should be higher than the heighest portion of the home, at least higher than the highest interior ceiling of the home. Unless you went with spray foam even new construction isn't that tight. opening a window or allowing more makup air prevents the house stack effect from overwhelming an improperly built chimney; it's a bandaid that doesn't really solve the problem. you don't need a chimney sweep, all you need to do is look at the stack, if this is the case (and it is ;) ) then you can either band-aid it or get a mason over there to correct the problem.

From this picture it appears your barometric damper is not level. I'd suggest making it level and thenn resetting it.

Well, she's not as attractive as many of the other stoves, but for burning bit she works beautifully at least! Here's my Warm Morning model 500:

Nice stove. She looks good there. I burned a Warm Morning for many years. I really got my moneys worth out of her. Enjoy the stove and stay warm.
