Hi, I am new to the forum and coal stoves. I purchased a Chappee Wood Coal Stove Model 8033 and the instuctions are in french. I am planning to install this unit in my fire place. Does anyone have experience with this stove? The person I purchased the unit made it all sound very simple- the installation and firing it up. I have attached a picture of the unit. Also the unit has an internal flue damper is there any other type of damper that I need. I have read few posts about baro dampers- any suggestions?

Hello, I have one of these stoves installed in my basement fireplace. I recommend a baro for this unit because it can get carried away when using coal. The internal damper should be open for all startups and closed down when your fire is established. Check all the door gaskets and the condition of the firebrick and grates. I recommend nut coal for this stove. You will have to shake this stove vigorously as the shaker grates don't move alot.

Thank you coalvet,

What is the purpose of the BARO- how does it work and where should it be intalled on the pipe. You mentioned that the unit can runaway with coal. How does the baro work to controll the fire.

Thanks

Hi Rooter, a barometric damper senses the draft in the flue pipe, and once the draft exceeds the force needed to open the flapper on the baro-damper, the draft will not exceed what it takes to open the flapper.. The force needed to open the flapper is adjustable with a sliding weight..

A baro damper only functions to limit the maximum draft.. This way if the wind starts to really blow, or the temperature plummets overnight, or both, the excess draft created won't pull too much air though your fire, burning the coal to fast, and possibly overfiring your stove.. The draft will be limited by the baro-damper.

There are several topics in the forums about Barometric Dampers.. Since you are new at burning coal,, I'd recommend reading the fourm some:
about startting a fire in a hand-fired stove : How to Light a Hand Fired Coal Stove
about chimneys and Baro Dampers: Baro damper?
reading about maintaining a good fire..

This will give you a good education base to start with for your first burn and first few weeks of heating with coal... you will quickly learn 'the ropes'.

Hope this helps.. Greg L
