    Are you able to see/find any mechanical components and maybe break them loose?

    I'll check in the morning. Not feeling terribly inclined to tinker with a brand new stove after burning a few kindling splits. Search of this site shows that people have experienced sicking of the bypass on other FPX inserts.

    I checked again. It's working now, but I can see it sliding open and closed, though it's not smooth like one would want. I'm going to start another thread so as to not hijack this one. Feeling like there might be some installation issues or something.

    The bypass rod runs through the output/liner connection. I had to notch the liner starter to clear it. Maybe they didn't notch it enough or the liner dropped a bit and put pressure on it.
