I have no problems other than the fan motor quit and was easily replaced,,, couple questions,,, How do I get the hottest burn,, Ive read all kinds of ideas.. but is it better with damper closed and air vents wide open??? also creosote question.. There is a time when we shut down the stove and drops below the 300 mark into creosote mode as it cools. are you making creosote during this time? ive been able to keep it cruzing between 300 and 400 but have read best to get up to 500-600 and throttle back and the elbows Ive installed do they pose anykind of problem?
