first of all this is my first post on this site I appreciate anyone who’s willing to help me with my stove I have a 1200sq foot house single level house with a reversomatic r-35 probably the last stove I would choose but it came with the house we bought in 2015 in beaverton Ontario. My question is this this stove is big rated for 3000 sq ft overkill I’d say for the house but it does give us 10+ hrs of heat which is probably the only thing I do like about it . The info I’m looking for is weather this is normal for the way this particular stove should operate or burn as the manufacturer has told me it is I don’t believe them but here we go. If I open the heat control slightly open I can wrap my temperature gauge all the way around crazy hot you can smell the heat coming off it at night you can see a orange glow coming out the chimney . I’ve tried things I can damper it down it helps but I’m not convinced that’s write or should be used. I’ve replaced the door seal too now that’s another question I’m sertin that i should not be able to see the glow of the flame between the gasget and the door in my opinion the doors don’t fit or mate up evenly there’s no adjustment or anything! . I’m burning mostly ash some birch and black cherry seasoned for one year under 20% moisture content according to a mosisture meter . According to reverso cast iron doors can’t warp and it’s normal that you would be able to get that carzy heat out of it with the heat control open and that the doors don’t have to seal tightly on these stoves that is the nature of this beast . I guess bottom line is to me this sounds like bs but maybe it is the nature of the beast in my opinion this stove is junk . But basically what are you fine folks opinion?
