Other Information about the Home and Stove

Likes: Top loading feature.

Dislikes: Bypass very finicky, never seems to close all the way; very sloppy. Adjusting the pressure plate does absolutely nothing.

Comments: Had to replace the bypass rod within the first two weeks of owning the stove, but the new part did not solve problem. The latest is that the bypass would not close all the way and had no way of controlling the burn of the stove. The dealer is wonderful and will make sure we get a different stove (different manufacturerer.) If anyone is interested in this stove, I would think again, as this one is on its way back to the manufacturer. The best thing going for this stove is just the looks.
