    I have a Regency i1200 insert. this ofcorse is completely inclosed with my surround. I have a thermomoter that I stick on the body right above the top corner of the door....I get good heat at around 300 to 350, " with fan going" only once in awhile does it get to 400. Have never seen over 425. my question would be ??? do you think I am burning hotter than what this thermonotor is reading? and does anyone know how I could get a accurate reading on this burner? I can't help but to beleive it is burning hotter.... another thing is , how hot does it have to be for the wash system to work effientiantly? because it doesn't seem to wash as well as I would expect it to? and if it isn't....does this mean I am not burning it hot enough? minor things....I do get good heat...but these little things drive me crazy !!! and yes...I do have pretty good season wood, had to but some ..!@!^%*^&$% what I had wasn't dry enough

    I've read about 1100F when aiming a 'thermometer gun' at my insert's glass.

    Could be a funny spot to use a thermometer - because many stove have their air intake manifolds right there - on the sides and above the door. So check that out.

    As far as "accurate temps" there really is no such thing, because stoves vary in design.
