The title says it all pretty much. Had the Endeavor burning since middle of October. Wood measures with a moisture meeter (included with the stove) at 16% to 22% with the occasional 28%'er (split these ones up into smaller splits). Stove is in the basement with a center of the house chimney which is lined. Chimney goes up two floors beyond the basement. All of my experience burning wood up to this year has been with an old Non-EPA All-Nighter. It seems that when I settle the Endeavor into cruising for most any burn consisting of 4-5 splits on a 300-400 deg coal bed, my stove temps always climb to the high 600's and often mid 700's. I close down the air control as far as 3/4 closed, sometimes a little more, yielding a very lazy flame (but active secondaries). I find if I close the air control down much further, the fire sorta seems to stall. I've been measuring my temps with a Kintrex IR thermometer. Single wall pipe leads 20 inches from the top of the stove to a 90 then 13.5 inches to the chimney thimble into the rectangular SS lined chimney which is capped approximately 3 feet above the peak of the roof. Are these temps normal for this stove? I'm able to keep it from running away on me but it is awfully close to Lopi's 800 degree kill your warrantee mark. I see so many people cruising their stoves closer to 500-600. I'd love to be able to get the long burns I'm getting at some lower temperatures. Is that even possible with this stove? Thoughts?
