So after 10 years of marriage my loving wife and I bought our first home. Pretty exciting ! I've never owned or used a wood stove but guess what the home came with..ha,ha...So It seems to work ok , although I have no idea what kind it is. I understand the basics so far. It has a blower on the back that pushes the warm air thru 4 big tubes. The tubes actually go thru the fire. On the right side it has a control nob. It has a spring that attaches to a chain and runs the air-in flap thats on the bottom front. No ash pan . Here's a couple pics...maybe somebody can help out this newbie. Thanks!
