    I do not know what else to say, I found this video while on you tube, and this guy is proud that he has smoke coming out of the vent, he says that is how you know it is working right lol!:eek:

    Mine has smoke at the initial start up of the stove. Is that not good?

    I watched that video to, and saw the smoke pouring into his living area and almost had a heart attack. I am going to buy him a co2 detector!

    Why not just go out and then 3' up? I really do not understand! And he wonders why the pipe is plugged?! REALLY! Maybe because your blower is way under powered to blow ash that far up! Is he going to make a video of him cleaning up the ruins of his burnt down house too?

    He spent more on vent, than the stove. Nah, it's prob B-vent gas pipe :(

    The smoke, is from start up, that's why he said he had to go shut it down. But the way he said it, wasn't amusing.

    Sad... :( (I had to leave a comment, couldn't resist)

    That poor stove, doesn't look like she gets too much attention does it. Wonder why he has problems?

    I guess my exhaust leaks were minimal compared to this guy, when he started it up, I could not help but to laugh at all the smoke rolling out of the stove. I wonder if he lives close by to any of us, that we could try and save his life.

    A little smoke on startup is normal - but it should not be getting into the house! Period!

    Ugly stuff indeed, really makes you wonder. But, you can sleep better, knowing he's not using the pellet stove anymore.... replaced it with a gas stove. He's got a whole collection of videos out there, including one of him removing the stove... and the best part.... taking down his ugly "chimney"

    Thanks for posting, I missed that video. I like at the end when he said maybe the chimney is the reason I was having problems with the pellet stove. You Think!

    Looks like most of his house qualifies for "lack of attention" WOW !!!! His stack must also qualify for a lightning rod:p
    I think Smoke and Mad Dog should head over and show him the LBT, bring an extra extension cord;)
