    My husband installed pallet stove in our basement. The whole house smells horrible when the stove is on. There is no visible smoke. What is the problem?

    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    This topic has been covered extensively if you search around a little bit.

    But anyway, most likely your new stove is "burning off" the paint and other materials used in it's construction.

    You'll have to run it really really hot for an extended amount of time (preferably with a window open and a fan exhausting the smoky air) to completely burn away all of it.

    Some of the more clever people around here set up their stoves outside for the burn-off then install them indoors later on.

    I was wondering how you get the pallets into the hopper. :cheese: I'm sorry too I'm having a bad day and I too could not resist. I saw the post and it made me smile. The smell will go away as the newness burns off. You should be fine. If it doesn't go away then worry. BTW welcome
