    Question:

    MY WIFE AND I JUST PURCHASED A JOTUL F600CB. THE DEALER INSTALLED IT FOR US AND PUT A THERMOMETER IN THE CHIMNEY. I BROKE THE STOVE IN AS DIRECTED FOLLOWING THE TEMPURATURE GUIDELINES, HOWEVER GETTING THAT TEMP UP TO 400 IS DIFFICULT, EVEN WITH A STRONG DRAFT. MY QUESTION IS THIS, IS THE STOVETOP TEMP THE SAME AS THE TEMP IN THE CHIMNE



    Answer:

    The temperature in the center of the chimney pipe is as much as 50% higher than the outside surface temp. So:

    400=600

    Etc.
