Many of you know that i have had alot of issues with the stove, so here is a little update. I have not given up yet, and Im currently burning and watching my family member who has asthma, and she seems to be doing ok. After my grandfather, uncle, and I looked at the stove we all agreed that the combustion blower needs to be adjusted, as well as the stove pipe, and a new gasket needs installed. Not hard to do but it is under warranty so I called the stove company. They finally showed up after a month. The gasket is not center, and i have to try and get the scuff marks off mile tiled hearth. I also noticed after he left, the stove pipe has a small buckle in it from him pulling and pushing on it.. I will be redoing seals, and adjustments come spring.. All the other dealers in the area only work on quadrafire so Im SOL. Sorry for the long story,. I know you all have never met me, but I am the most laid back and easy going person you will ever meet. Im not hard to get along with and feel spending 3k total, that i should not be asking to much when I do not want my stove to leak.
