    I just started my new stove for the first time. Seems to be running fine, but there is a "haze" in the room, and I did notice a bit of "smoke" coming from the surface of it when it heated up. Its not a smoke smell like the exhaust is coming in the room, more like something else. Is this natural? I'm using an Englander 25...thank you!

    Normal, probably tells you about this in the manual. You need to burn a few smaller fires getting hotter and hotter each time. Each time you hit a new temp level it will stink a little and make a little smoke. After you do a couple ripping hot fires the smell and haze should be gone.

    I love the smell of curing paint in the morning.

    Actually I don't think they do mention it in the manual for the pellet stoves but that is in fact the paint curing and the manufacturing oils in the steel cooking off. After a few hours burning it will go away.
