    Hello, got a new stove for the addition and I'm wondering whats normal. I can get it up to temp no prob but what should I be seeing for temps? Closed almost completely down with 2 small sticks I had 650-700 front stovetop for an hour or so then 550 for 2 hours. Stack temp was 350-400. I'm conserned about warping the 2ndary air manifold that you see so much on these.

    Go for thicker splits if you can. They will burn longer and less hot initially. 650-700F is not uncommon on this stove top.

    Thats pretty normal temps for that stove and a Begreen said using some larger splits will get some longer burn times out of your 602

    Generally I cruise mine at 500 to 600. It loves to cruise with the air fully closed.
