    the cement you used is to glue rope and band seals/gaskets, not really meant for stove seal. but i suppose it will work just be a pain when you take the pipe off the stove.

    That stove design has been around a long time,works well.Post a picture of the "vent thing" you are talking about.If you did not burn the stove outside,you will get some smoke,from paint and oils,inside.

    thats not a bad fire. It takes a little while for the stove to get up to temp and it is its first fire so don't get discouraged. your going to have to learn the stove settings to fine tune to your liking. now every time you change a setting it takes 30-40 min for the stove to adapt. its slow but you'll be happy when the bugs are worked out

    Several things-1 you should have at least 3 foot vertical rise in your exhaust,per manual.2-you should have installed the parts for outside air,per manual, 3--MOST important--you are missing the impingement plate that covers the big hole behind the flames,will never get good heat without it.

    Easy to find the smoke leaks. Bring a flash light and have the room dark as evening. Then turn stove on. Look at all your joints on the exh pipe with the flash light and you will find the leaks. I use high temp clear silicone over any joints but you can also use high temp tape. One problem with buying a stove out of the area is no service. But having said that you should find a phone number to call and a company rep will help you suggest answers to your problem.. A good idea would be to find someone who is using a stove like yours and ask them for advice.

    Some are not very efficient.Where I live propane and electricity is expensive,so works out well for me. http://www.harmanstoves.com/Shopping-Tools/Buying-Resources/Pellet-Fuel-Savings-Calculator.aspx https://www.treehugger.com/clean-technology/pellet-stoves-vs-wood-stoves-which-is-greener.html and there are other online calculators you can use.

    Wow where in the hey do they get these numbers. It said 15-25 hours burn time on one 40lb bag, at this rate il be lucky to use two bags a day.... not including labor and the pain to reload it all the time... alls im saying is if natural gas is an option. Run to it, do t walk.. tell stnick il be broke this year lol

    Check the bottom 3 numbers (buttons below heat and blower buttons)

    Also check what mode your stove is in. Should be set to D mode.

    A quick search on this site for englander 25pdvc will provide tons of information.

    I have the same stove and use a bag about every 22 hours on medium heat settings.
