Riding the hole todayOoh, I don’t know rdust. The setting N corresponds to a different throttle plate angle depending on if the stove is warm or ice cold. At the n position the blade is partially open unless the stove is hot. I propose that the throttle blade is more open at colder temperatures than warmer ones which conflicts with your theory of operation. The bimetallic coil thermostat responds by trying to hit set point whether current stove temperature is above or below.
I can verify this by turning the thermostat down until I hear the throttle blade close. It closes at a lower thermostat setting way below the n when cold.
At a super low thermostat setting like full minimum I think the throttle plate will never open. You’re riding the hole no matter what.
25c inside, 1c outside
5 splits in cold stove this morning and will ride the hole for a 12 hr burn. Might reload tonight or maybe let stove go cold for a morning restart. My house only drops 2 or 3 degrees Celsius in 12 hrs overnight, and sometimes gains 2 or 3 degrees Celsius during the day when sun in out with a cold stove and no other heat on.
Insulation and a tight house paid off as I now heat 1280sq ft on 1 cord of wood only, no other heat source on.
