Installed my new progress 2/11, performed my break in fires, and began 24/7 heating. This stove spills smoke on reloads, makes a lot of expansion noise and smells like smoke when I damper it down. Contacted WS they are sending me a new redesigned cast top piece that will lay under the top stones. I hope this solves the smell issue. The noise I'm guessing is from the steel core. Smoke spill seems to be the stoves trait from what I've read here. Then there was a burn I had that approached 675f stove top and 550f flue, I shut the air and it got hotter. Just want my fireview back, didn't have any of these issues. WS is great but in my opinion with my chimney/house combo the fireview worked much better. Also isnt the dampner handle a bit flimsy compared to the rest of the stove? Give me $600 and a used fireview my progress is yours, not kidding pm me.
