    Start the stove with bottom bottoms on 641 heat setting on 5 fan on 5 when fire is burning and convection fan turns on move heat on 1 fan on 1 set bottom buttons at 461 that will slow feed rate.

    Do what I said in my last post move bottom 3 numbers to 461 in other words change the low fuel feed button to 4 and run it on 1 1...if you need more heat change back to 641 and move your heat and fan button to desired comfort level.

    You can also try 3 on low fuel feed but don't go lower than that try 4 for a while and try it

    Press the lower left button ( low fuel feed) the # 6 should come up press arrows to adjust same for low burn air

    If you didn't change your mode then don't worry about it, it should be factory...we can deal with that later if what I said don't work.

    I still would change the middle # to 6 (low burn air). Keep it on 1 1. Yep play with 3 or 4 on your low fuel feed I'm sure you will get close to the results you are looking for.

    Just remember if you change the heat range above 1 move your low fuel feed back to 6

    I must be having a brain fart, low burn air should be 4 not 6 you were correct...run 441 or 341 sorry about that.
