Hi all, I purchased a Montpelier Insert in September and had it installed in October. When we first started using the stove, the fan would come on at around 200 degrees regardless of what we were burning. Generally speaking, we've been burning a mix of EnviBlocks and semi-seasoned (moisture ~26%) cordwood. I had the chimney cleaned 2 weeks ago by the guy who installed the stove and he said to stop burning the un-seasoned wood. The chimney had a fair amount of creosote buildup and we don't burn 24/7 either. So now we're just burning the EnviBlocks. The past few days on Long Island have been brutally cold. And I've noticed that it takes much longer for the fan to kick on. (The fan activation temps were gradually increasing since I've owned it, but yesterday was particularly noteworthy.) Instead of being 200 degrees (between the fan outlets, above the door) the fan turns on around 300 degrees and runs for a minute or two, and then shuts off again. Yesterday I loaded the cold stove the same way I always do (4 blocks) and it began to heat up. When the blocks caught, I closed the door. But the fan didn't come on full time until the temperature of the front of the stove approached 420 degrees. It's been less than 6 months that we've had it, so I called the dealer and they want to charge me a small fortune to service the stove. They said Vermont Castings covers parts only under their crappy warranty. They said that it might be the blower, or the rheostat, etc. He couldn't tell me if the huge variation in the fan activation temps was normal or not. So what do you guys think? Do you think there's something wrong with it or is this normal? I don't want to pay to have the stove serviced if there isn't anything wrong with it. And for my fellow Montpelier owners, when does your fan turn on? Any advice? Thanks again! You guys are always a huge help.
