Not too much that I can say good about it.

Very Dangerous because of too much crosote build up. There is nothing that you can do about it. Its a poorly designed stove. I have had many people with a lot of experience check it out and its just the stove. You can't even get the flue temp. up unless you keep the door ajar.

I really have no choice but to deal with it because I am on social security and bought it before I found this web page. I just hope that my letter will help someone else from making a very expensive mistake.
