Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 750 | House Size (Sq feet): 2250
Bought in 1991 , Price Paid: 1250
Location : Topeka, KS 66601, USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - No Longer in Business

Likes: The stove has been consistently efficient, warms entire house.. 80 in area with stove, 68-70 in rest of house (Tri-Level).

Dislikes: Lack of technical support. Dealer is out of business, and manufacturer has thus far been nonresponsive. Need simple help with wiring diagram for blowers, but am a little lost, lol. Fans can also be a little noisey when on high.

Comments: Stove was improperly installed by dealer and not direct vented. I just reworked and direct vented the stove, increasing my satisfaction 100%. All I need now is a wiring diagram...which btw, was not included in the owners manual.
