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.
