I have burnt a few fires in my new to me Quadrafire 7100..In the manual I downloaded on line from there web site it says to open outside air by turning the knob counter clockwise? When I was hooking this fireplace up it looks to me like the outside air opens by turning clockwise. Am I looking at it wrong? Which way opens the outside air? Also my blower doesnt kick on for a long time and when it does it only blows for a minute then kicks off. Then kicks off and on every couple minutes. Is this a bad snap disk or should I open the trap door and make sure its pressed against the bottom of the plate good? Last question is My fire will start but after awhile it will smolder down quite a bit. I can crack open the door and it picks right up and starts burning good till I close doors again. Could something be stopped up from sitting, There were mice living in it when I bought it from the guy I work with, or think its just my wood.Its about 20% with a moisture meter.
