    You have a big house.

    What did you do to mod the burn pot in your Englander?

    I'll take pics when I clean it next time.

    I plugged the side holes and made a guard under the burn pot to force the air up under the pellets as they come out of the auger. . You will hear that tons of people on here will chim in saying that englander knows best.

    I'm not knocking them but they can only spend so much time on a product it's part of r&d. If a company could spend unlimited amount of time then there would never be recalls or updates.

    Ya they do. back of stove doesn't get hot . Knock on wood. I replaced the power cord with a custom 15 foot length just so I didn't have to have two extension cords plugged in so the curtain rests against the cord acts like a stand off

    Is it 3" venting?

    That may be why you needed to Mod your pot? If you have 2ft horiz out, then 90°, then 3ft horiz, then 90°, then 8ft vert? Thats an EVL of 19. That if your vert, ends with a vert cap. If you turned 90° and a cap, its 24. For 3" vent, 15' EVL is recommended max.

    When I set up the stove I just went straight out until i decided if that's where I wanted the stove I didn't want to drill holes in my new siding if I didn't have too. I mod the burn pot befor doing the outside vertical pieces . Once it exits outside I'm using 4 in. My evl is code. Not that it matter cause I used 3 in at my old house going 25 feet. Evl is one of those things that an engineer made up. I take it with a grain of salt. It's like that saying do u really need a warning label on scissors that says don't run while holding.

    EVL is something the engineers made up?? You maybe right, I heard that people actually believe the world is round and not flat. I saw some pictures of men on the moon, and we know that was just something dreamed up to justify spending billions. I with you brother, hang on a second I have to adjust my tin foil hat. Don't want those darned aliens hearing what I got to say.

    Beautiful home, and I Know you say that the back of the stove never gets hot, but those curtains, are way to close. That is a fire hazard! I am not busting your chops, if you can sleep at night and are cool with it, by all means carry on

    I no. Cotton burns at 250 * if it got that hot I'd be worried about the warning stickers on the back catching fire or the wall for that matter

    I sleep just fine actually its a little to warm might have to open a window. Lol

    The front of my englander is currently IR metered at 480 degrees,... the vent pipe at the rear is at 535 degrees.... feeding stove chow !! ...hmmm

    ...dont worry bout those curtains,... or the lack of a hearth barrier.

    well last time I checked the curtains are not touching the front of the stove nor the exhaust pipe. nor does my floor. but then again I made a custom pad recessed into the floor so I didn't see an ugly pad. its stained to match the floor.

    by all means do. Im all about as long as someone uses some common sense why not. there are people on here that groan and moan about changing the power cord length or some other nonsense. when I read some of these posts I sit back and laugh asking myself how do some of these people actually function in life.

    Common sense is not having a wood burning stove touching your curtains! Arrogance, and confidence can get you in trouble real quick. We actually function quite well in life, knowing that are families are safe and warm. My 2 cents!

    well the back of my stove doesn't get hot its a pellet not wood. I can put my hand on it. unless theres some magical moment things just don't catch fire for no reason. if that was the case all those people that hang a dish towel on there oven and turn them on would have burned there houses down. the curtain is in the back not on top or in front of the room blower.

    If you can lay your hand on the vent pipe then your stove is not working properly,... like I said Ive seen vent pipes on pellets stoves reach 600 degrees,... but hey, as long as your sleeping soundly.... who am I to question,.. carry on.

    if my stove pipe ever got that hot my walls would catch fire. if someone's pipe got that hot there hi temp switch has to be broken.

    yes my pipe is warm I have a temp gage on it which reads 170 185. when it starts going up I no its time for a cleaning. 600 degree pipe = cash out the window
