I recently moved my clydesdale further into the room to take up the space between the blower outlets and the surround. I moved the surround bracket as far back as it would go and moved the unit until the surround would fit flush. Now the back edge of the front cover or fasade is visible with the bracket just behind it. I looked through the manual to see if there was a minimum distance that the bracket needed to be positioned forward of where it stops if pushed all the way back, but didn't find anything. I'm asking if this possition is OK because now I get my highest temp readings from a spot on the bracket itself instead of the stove top? I use a IR thermo with a laser to pinpoint the spot I take the readings from.
