Start-Up
Open the bypass (pg. 26).
Open the air control (pg. 28).

Smoke Enters Room While Re-
Loading
Open the bypass (pg. 26) before opening the door.
Let the air stabilize before fully 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 31 for details on wood.
Make sure the air control is all the way open. Slide the
control back and forth to insure the control is not stuck.
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.
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
Depending upon wood, draft, and other factors, the
burn time may be shorter then stated. Make sure the
doors are sealing and not allowing air into the firebox -
See the section "Door and Glass Inspection" on page
35 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.
