    Hi guys new to the page here. Just purchased a house last year and I. The basement was a beautiful all nighter wood stove. Unfortunately I don’t know much about it I think it’s the Giant moe but not sure how to tell. Has a 24x18” door opening with a glass in door. Has an 8” flue and has blower. Tried looking through the forums on here but couldn’t find anything. Any information would be awesome! Also was reading something about a baffle for the all nighter stoves what is it and where would it go?

    Thanks for any input!

    Thanks Jan I checked all those out from what I read looks like I have a giant moe fireplace model. Says it will heat up to about 2500 sqf or so which is nice! Was wondering if anyone on here can give me any info on it specs or things they did to there’s for better efficiency. I keep hearing about baffles people put on the inside. Wasn’t sure what those are all about.

    Member @coaly is the Moe and Fisher expert. He will chime in soon enough. In the meantime, keep searching on this site. There is quite some info on these stoves.

    Coaly thanks for the information. So I confirmed that I have a all nighter Giant moe which seems like a decent stove. Would love to get my hands on a Big moe seems like a significant amount more of burn time than what I have. Not sure though do you know anything about these baffles I keep reading about that people are putting in there all nighters to help heating and bud time?

    How much clearance do you have from the stove to the wall? And what is under the tile on the floor?

    There’s roughly 3 feet from corner of the stove to wall and from the back where the flue comes out to the corner of the wall is about 5 feet. And it’s in my basement it’s surrounded by concrete

    So the walls are completly non combustible? If so you are good other than lack of insulation. But if they are drywall your pipe is way to close as it enters the crock.

    Yea the walls are 8” concrete that the flue goes through. The only combustible is the floor joists but those are about 6 feet away from anything. The stove was there when I bought the house I burned it last year with whatever wood I can scratch up found that maple burnt the best in the stove and it keeps the house a comfortable 73-75 degrees all winter

    Yea when I got the house it had the carpet under and around it so I pulled it all up tiled it and made sure it had all the correct distances. And made sure everything was air tight. It has its own stand alone concrete block chimney with the rectangular ceramic flue. At least I think it’s ceramic not sure what they made it out of

    Its terracotta typically called clay liners. Did you have the liners inspected? Does the chimney have proper clearances?

    Honestly haven’t had anything inspected I looked down the chimney myself everything looks ok it burns good and pulls a great draft. As far as clearance I’m sure it does it clears the peak of the roof and it also has an air gap between the chimney and house with the aluminum siding in between so there’s an air buffer between it which not sure if that’s good or bad

    Well the fact that it has a gap is very good and very uncommon to see. It should be 1" to any combustibles. You really should have the clay tiles inspected for cracking with a camera.

    Yea it has about a 2-3” gap between the chimney and siding. And I’ll look into having a guy come check the tiles out. Thanks for all the input!

    By the time Fisher started offering glass door models, their Fireplace Series had a factory "Smoke shelf Baffle". I don't know the air wash flow across glass in yours, so be careful how much you baffle it and create soot on the glass. The baffle plate just needs to be kept shorter in the back to avoid rolling smoke into the glass too much. The baffle should be designed for the chimney, as well as the stove, so principals apply from the baffle thread in the Fisher section.
