I am wondering what is the average stove top temperature of your stove during
an overnight burn ? I have a non catalyst stove.
Also, the primary air control located on the top right of my Pleasant Hearth WSL 1800 seems to be abit stiff to slide.
Will this become easier { smoother } to slide over time ? I called the company and the said there is no adjustment to it.
Thanks again all !

It should slide easily. It is designed to never close fully but my PH 2200 slides very easy. Look it over. It could have been hit and bent in shipping . A simple pry with a bar or screwdriver might be all it needs.

Like snobuilder said the rod could have gotten bent. Or there could be some corrosion. Or welding slag. Check to be sure nothing is bent and if not it will probably smooth out with use
