we just got a brand new KAST III and the combustion motor makes a hideous unhealthy rattle
anybody with this stove or a one with the same burner know what is normal ?

It's broke!
Fans can have noise but that is not right. Remember these combustion fans are just a comodity fan, not a heck of a lot of quality control in them. Should be simple warranty replacement.

I noticed that the hinge mounts have gaps that are direct holes into the firebox I know its not a air tight stove but I am not sure if it was intentional or a design flaw
also the corners of the door flange have the same gaps that where not welded closed

I know I'd damn sure be talkin to the dealer who I bought the stove from with any questions/concerns! If it don't look or sound right--it probably isn't!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
