I wouldn't worry too much about the thermo (snap) disk. They generally take a little while before they close for the first time, almost like they, too, need a break in fire. After a couple of cycles, it'll start to operate the fan in 15 - 20 minutes & will stay that way til it fails, which usually takes years. BTW, The Hampton was always my favorite woodburning insert, when I was in the trade. Love those secondaries, too!
Thanks for the advice Daksy, I won't mess with it then. I was really suprised how much heat this thing put out without the fan even running. Pretty sure it would heat the whole upstairs without the fan until the freezing temps kick in
