As a new owner of a Quad 2700 insert, could anyone please tell me their experiences and application with this unit. Of interest to me is the placement of a thermometer. Where and what type, as I have a Rutland 701 Stove Top model, but have placed it on the face of the unit above the door. How do you calibrate to give an accurate depiction of the actual stove temp? I have used an infrared thermometer to take readings of its location and the rear fire brick inside the stove, but this would give an accurate read of the internal temp would it? Also how do you get a longer burn out of this thing without overfiring it? I am very reluctant to load the stove, as I don't know it's limits or how to squeeze out the heat for a long duration. I find my max burn time with any measurable heat has been 2 1/2 hours. I realize the firebox is small but that's crazy! Has anyone used Eco bricks or Bio Logs in their units? These are touted as burning hot and long and the installer said I can burn 1 in there at a time. Seems like a waste of time if you need to constantly feed it like a Pez dispenser every couple hours. Please chime in with any suggestions for the use of this unit. Seems like a nice piece, but I think the snap disk sensor also does not function. Even when the stove heats up, the fan won't kick in. Look forward to your responses.
