Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Beautiful stove, large viewing area, soapstone with smooth heat.

Dislikes: This stove has a major overburn problem. Installed a damper and even with the damper completely horizontal and the stove heat controller at it's lowest level, the stove continues to burn hot. I put a lighter up to the seams (where the stones meet) and the air pulls the flame into the seams at a couple different spots. The dealer is skeptical with my diagnosis but will come out soon to replace the glass that is hazing. I will write more later, as the saga continues.
