    I just put in a brekwell P23 Insert. The manual states that we will get a smell for the first day or so, But I'm surprised on how strong the smell is. If I stick my head behind the machine, you can tell that's where all the smell is coming from. I went and applied UL certified tape on all the joints but no change in smell...

    Current smell is like oily rubber,

    Is this normal?

    Thanks

    New stove smell is definitely normal.....I had to have a window open a crack or so for half a day or more but the smell didnt go away for 24 hours or so.

    Did you take the owners manual out of the Ash pedestal?
    Just kidding

    You want to burn it off on a low to mediam heat
    the smell will be around for a day or soo but if it keep up
    something might be wrong

    One time I had a customer complain about smoke for 4 days
    I when out and found a 6and1 screw driver melted between the Decorative top plate of the stove and the top of the firebox
    Looked like Peanut Brittle on a stick
