Is it a full moon? I have that creapy feeling. Just an idea...... go to the good guy dealer who did the repair referral, right? Say the stove is the only heating source you have, can he do anything to help, ...like a loaner...... Once installed, you can take your time and settle the matters with the "service" guy. Tell the dealer to take it up with the tech he referred you to. Now I feel ashamed. :red: :sick: :red: Bad smokey, bad bad burner.
