Troubleshooting
Problem Possible Cause
Smoke Enters Room During
Start-Up
Cold Air Blockage - burn a piece of newspaper to
establish a draft.
Close the doors - if the flame is not getting enough air,
first make sure the air control is open (all the way in).
If additional air is needed, a small crack in the door is
all that is needed.
Kindling Does Not Start -
Fire Smolders
Cold Air Blockage - burn a piece of newspaper to
establish a draft.
Not enough starter paper - use additional newspaper if
necessary.
Not enough air - first make sure the air control is open
(all the way in). If additional air is needed, a small
crack in the door is all that is needed.
Smoke Enters Room While
Re-Loading
Let the air stabilize before fully opening the door.
Push the air control in before opening the door. Then
open the door approximately 1 inch. Let air go into the
firebox for a few seconds. Once the smoke appears to
be flowing up the chimney consistently, open the door.
Insufficient Draft - Chimney height and outside
conditions can negatively affect draft. In these cases a
small amount of smoke may enter the home. Adding
more pipe or a draft-inducing cap may help.
Stove Does Not Burn Hot
Enough
Wood is Wet - see the section "Selecting Wood" on
page 29 for details on wood.
Insufficient Draft - Chimney height and outside
conditions can negatively affect draft. In these cases
the fire may burn slowly. Adding more pipe or a draft-
inducing cap may help.
Air Control is Not Wide Open - Make sure the air
control is all the way in. Slide the control back and
forth to insure the control is not stuck.
Blower Does Not Run Stove is Not Up to Temperature - This is normal. The
blower will come on when the stove is hot - usually 15
to 30 minutes.
Electricity is Cut to the Blower - Check the household
breaker or fuse to make sure it is operable.
Stove Does Not Burn Long
Enough
This appliance burns for up to 8 hours. Depending
upon wood, draft, and other factors, the burn time may
be shorter. Make sure the doors are sealing and not
allowing air into the firebox - See the section "Door
and Glass Inspection" on page 33 for details.
Check the ash bed for coals. Often, coals are still
glowing under a slight bed of flyash. By raking these
into a pile you can re-start your stove quickly.
