    Been reading and learning alot over the last few weeks and finally making first post. I purchased my first wood stove insert (Regency i3100) over the summer and started burning this past Novemeber. I actually have a question hoping to get some help with: I was cleaning stove out today and notice the top right baffle on the stove(when looking inside the stove) seems to be slightly curved (Does not lay flat on top of the air tubes- front edge is raised roughly a 1/4") ......So a few questions (1) Is that normal ?(2)Whats causes that? and(3) Does it need to be replaced asap or safe to continue to burn as is?...... Thanks the the help in advance!

    Ours seemed to curve a little after the first few months. Been running like that for over 2 years now.

    So long as the baffles are together, slightly overlapped and pushed back, seems to work just fine.

    Just make sure the baffles are pushed fully back and to the left and right. You should be fine. Can you upload a picture?
