    Put it on setting three and open the draft. The flame should be real active and you should have some sparks bouncing around. You don't want to see a lazy flame with dark or smoking tips on the flame.

    Ok. I am sure my half would know. But when you say open the draft.. do you mean damper if so all the way?

    I just came back from a call and I'll tell you why I always tell people to open the draft first if the pot is filling and it's smoking. This couple have a dog as big as a cow. This is the second time he's push the draft lever in. If you're having a problem, opening the draft all the way takes that out of the equation. You can reset it after you find the problem. Which leads me to the second most common issue. People call and tell me their stove keeps shutting down right after they cleaned it. That's because they forget to lock the ash drawer. You did lock the ash drawer didn't you? You'd be surprised how many new stove owners do this.

    But it is a contained unit. There are no levers outside.

    I think I must be having a truly blond moment 959e77bd693a65aed87f8574a92a90e2.jpg

    I really would like to see that install be changed to 2 4 degree bends instead of the 90 degree bends,any stove would breathe better,but,wait till yer dealer shows up.

    OK I’m going to sound really stupid here I didn’t know there was a lock on the Astros we will look at our stove in detail tomorrow morning when it is bright out. We just shut the red drawer so it’s closed. I will ask the husband. He has been the one doing all of this. I will see if he has noticed any type of luck on the ash pot

    It is a 1/4 turn thumb latch,draws the ash pan up against the gasket,I cannot believe your husband would not have done that wrong.

    He did not. He knew about it. He says it does not sit in place if not locked. Yay for that

    We may have just found your problem. It should be tripping your vacuum switch. But if it's not it's going to cause a combustion problem. I see you have cathedral ceilings. How far above the ceiling does the pipe go?

    Ok. So question. Just with where the burnt pot should fit we had it pushed into far cause we wanted it to be tight not knowing any better. Then someone said hey you need to have a fit in these little holes but it still didn’t fit right so here are two pictures which one is right the one where is fitting in the holes or one where it’s really truly back and there’s only a teeny bit of the pike showing 625dde7bce609b0456a60220d236ac90.jpg d037eeca0a3cbd0a716cb34eda9a1bdc.jpg

    There it was a woodstove in there for about 25 years. The actual rest of the pipe was the old woodstove pipe it goes up about

    From the end of the pipe from the pellet stove it goes up about 12 feet using the old woodstove pipe

    Those three elbows alone take up 15 feet of EVL. Add what looks like 3 feet of horizontal and 8 feet of vertical and you're at 22 of your 25 allowed. Two 45's instead would have you at 17.

    From the top of the actual pellet stove pipe that is where it starts to use the old woodstove pipe it then extends up about 10 feet that’s how much plywood is there then above that from the roof it extends out about approximately 45 feet from the roof

    Is there a liner in the wood stove pipe? And is it 6 or 8 inch? Whenever you go into a 6 inch pipe the pellet pipe has to be 4 inch. If it's an 8 inch pipe it has to have a liner. This gets worse by the day. Did you have this inspected?
