Well winter seems over here but my Osburn insert got installed today. We made a raised hearth for it to sit on out of concrete which is on 4 steel pipe legs. Kind of an industrial,high tech look. Love it! I will try to post a picture soon. My question is this insert has a fan and it does not work. Unless I am mistaken and this is the kind where the fan comes on only when it gets up to temp. I know there are a couple of Osburn Insert users here.......can you tell me how its suppossed to work. I love this stove but the instructions were so horrible. My instaler has been doing this for 20 yrs and he said he had never seen such bad instructions. d.
