    Did you ever figure out if the catalytic combustor is working? Can you see it glowing if you look through the glass into the top of the firebox when the stove is up to temp and the bypass lever is closed? If that is a cat thermometer it should be soaring up around 1000* or more when the cat lights off..

    I have a ton of wood the previous owner left behind. It's under the deck, which I do not like for a storage area because it attracts vermin to the house, so I am going through all of that, first.

    I have no idea. I will look. The thermometer has moved, now, to mid-operating range, just the other day as I stuffed it full and let 'er rip. It does not have numbers, just "Too cool" "operating range" and "too hot". I will look and see if I see a glow. Would that be the honeycomb above the "shield" as I call it?

    And it sounds like his is working if the needle is going into the 'operating range.'

    Wouldn’t hurt to make a follow up call, you know, just to “make sure they got the e-mail” and squeak your wheel a bit.;)

    I just checked. The cat is dancing orange, and my needle is in the lower 1/3 of the operating range. The probe appears to go into where I imagine that cat lives.
