Well, the stove came at the end of August, and I am just now installing. Looking to fire it in the next couple of days.
Had a couple of questions. Seems that the combustion fan is REALLY close to the vent pipe, like on top of it. Not sure
how to run the various wires from the fans. The color coded tie wraps are clear enough. What I am concerned about is
the heat. How close is too close? Tie wrap them away as best I can? Assembly was a snap, but I was curious about the feeder
angle. Not having burned coal yet, I do not know, but the angle of the grate looks like the coal would just slide off. I thought
maybe I had installed up side down. But, you can't do that or so it appears, right?
I have killer draft in my chimney, with the wood stove I ran there before, I had a manual damper, and had to run it closed
all the time. I am curious to see how the new one with the weights will work. Dead cold, I can put a match out with the suction
from the hopper!
Looking for oiling points on the fans, can not find them. I searched and read previous threads on it, I still can not find them.
And a last question, can I run a longer wire to the thermostat control? Stove is in basement and I wanted to control temp in the
floor above. But 20 ft is not even close. Are longer lines available or is there a limit to how long it can be?
Thanks in advance, sorry so many questions. :o

Hopper angle is pretty steep.

Wires should be fine when wire tied away from flue pipe.

You can run up to 100' of cat-5 wire for thermostat. Home Depot has wire & connectors.

The oiling points on the fans are small holes on either side of motor.

If you don't have one, get a manometer to check draft (.04).

And just a reminder of Carbon Monoxide detectors.

Also,Manual Dampers not required or recommended, Just the Baro Dampers.

Once you get it burning, the ash will keep the coal from falling off the grates. Starting a fire is a different story, you need something to keep it from falling of the rates, small piece of metal (angle iron), it will push if off and fall into ash bin anyway once it gets going.

Thank You, it is a comfort to have experienced help. The stove came with the little metal collar for start up. Think I will
try to find "cowboy coal" as that seems to be cheapest/easiest way to fire. Still to warm here in the Boston area to fire up.
I am ready to go, just need some cool weather! :roll:

You may want to fire it up while it is warm out. With a new stove you will get paint smell and smoke this is normal let the stove burn hot a few hours to "cure" it. if it is nice out this will allow you to open doors and windows. i even used a box fan to move smoke and smell out. Remember it is normal to get smoke in the house with a new stove. Hope this helps
