Greetings!

Just installed a Drolet 1800 insert. I am puzzled as to where is the hot air supposed to come out from? The blower are pushing air into the inset but there is no opening to some out hot (I used to have two holes for output in my old Regency). Any ideas? Appreciated.
Thank you.

The gap between the stove top and the metal shroud surrounding the stove...that 3/4" - 1" tall gap the whole way across the top there...

Just start a fire. In about 30 minutes, with the blower turned on, you'll know.

That, and what brenndamotu said...
