Had to replaced my baffle plate also. Mine overheated a couple of times before the new feed auger cover was installed, thinking that's what did it. Got the new plate from Enviro and replaced. Easy enough, 4 bolts. They also sent 2 new screws and spacers (longer) to hold in the ceramic brick liner in place.Threerun said:So got a new baffle plate today. The old one one was warped about 3/4" in the center (between the tabs when the plate is installed- the most bulge was in the back). With the top warped, it made removal and reinstall of the plate difficult, as the tabs were pulled toward the center of the plate.
The new plate is the same diameter as the old one, so we shall see.
The new plate didn't cost me anything, but I had to return the original plate to the dealer. They were pretty amazed at the condition of the original- again I let them know my stove didn't over fire (in so much that the stove never tripped the temp sensor).
Other than that- burning about a 1/2 ton p/mo since mid October. It has pretty much stayed below freezing for the last 2-3 weeks or so, calling for single digit temps this week. No other issues, problems or complaints with the unit. Set to Hi/Lo at 75deg in the basement, keeping the upstairs at 68deg so minimal propane usage thus far. Just filled the LGP tank last week and hope to not burn through it this winter for upstairs heating.
Just making sure I understand your post. I have the Hampton GC60 which is the same as your M55 with different badges. You said, "highest setting on stove 3?" Does your stove not have 5 settings? I'm asking about this because I've had several issues with mine not heating very well and if you are heating your home at -12F on heat setting 3 it only confirms that I got a dud.-12 as I write this. Good heat coming from unit. Hi/Lo setting with thermostat. Highest setting on stove 3, feed rate 1, combustion 2. Keeps the house around 65deg. Can't ask for much more than that given the unit is downstairs.
My apologies- My stove does have a range of 1-5 for heat settings. I meant to say the highest I have set mine to is '3'. It has never been on '5'. It does a very good job of heating the house. You literally cannot stay in the basement with the stove set at '3', even if it is −12 out. The basement is finished and very well insulated. (Poured concrete. 2-6 studs insulated, then 1" rigid insulation then drywall).Just making sure I understand your post. I have the Hampton GC60 which is the same as your M55 with different badges.
