    Newbie... How do I use my new soapstone stove?

    Hi! I’m new here. We just got ourselves a new Hearthstone Homestead soapstone stove. We did our two break in burns. So today I wanted to start cranking up the heat.

    Confused about measuring temperature

    Hi, new to wood burning but absolutely love heating our home with it so far. We just installed a Timberwolf EPI22 insert but I'm trying to make sure I'm burning at optimal temps (not worried about being too cold more so too hot). I have a basic magnetic thermometer mounted just above the door...

    Stove Burning Hotter This Year... Why And What To Do?

    I have been burning in our Jotul F 500 stove for about eight seasons now. Each season comes with a few incidents where the fire seems to rage out of control. But this season is different. It seems to occur much more frequently. Almost any time I load the stove full with wood (usually at...

    Heat n Glo I35F - No Flame Adj; How Warm Should it be?

    We had a Heat n Glo I35F installed in Dec 2015. The fan was making a high pitched squeal which was swapped out under warranty. Then, the replacement fan started making a different noise which was attributed to a wire that had somehow come into contact causing a vibration type noise. The fan...

    New insert using a stove thermometer question

    Hello I recently had a quadrafire 3100I insert installed. It puts out a decent amount of heat and does a decent job of heating the hearth room, living room, and the kitchen if I use the blower on it. Anyways I have a question. I think I'm a good judge of getting the burn rate and temperature...

    P43 room temp issues

    I have a harman p43 stove. When I attempt to run the stove in room temp mode the stove will not regulate the temperature. If I set it for 70 degrees I will wake up in the middle of the night to find it 80 degrees. On initial startup if I turn the temp setting down the status light goes out but...
