Lots of good information in your reply. I found a thread about adjusting the bimetal draft control but I still don't have it quite right. Is there another spring assist in the draft door hinge itself?
It seems like the bimetal spring doesn't have the hurumph-umph to push open the draft door. Instead of opening the draft door the bimetal spring just bends and/or the "rod" that goes to the door bends. Either that or the draft control knob pushes itself up. Any sage advice on that ?
Manual damper installed...
As far as output, yeah it does pour out the heat !
