Hey gang, I have not been on the forum for some time and had something come up last night that seemed a bit odd to me. I have a LopiLiberty 1750 unit in the basement. Like others the weather here in the N.W. Iowa has been dipping a bit. I put five large splits in the stove last night around 10:00 on top of a good bed of coals. I left the draft control open until they got to burning good and then shut it down over 3/4 of the way. It seemed to just want to keep on gaining steam, so I slowly keep closing down the draft until it was shut completely off. The funny part was it never lost any fire, it was burning a really nice blue flame through the back secondary tubes and was being pulled towards the front down across the door glass. I stayed in the basement and sleep on the couch for a bit to watch it. But feel asleep and woke up at 1:00 a.m. and it still had some good amount of wood left that was not burned up so I went to bed. Woke up in the morning and it was burned to a nice white ash and still toasty warm in the basement. My question is why wood it not go out, is my main draft control not closing off completely? The stove is only on its third season.
