I had a new quadrafire 3100 installed about a month ago. I love the heat it puts out, but am concerned with the lingering smell. The first few fires had a very strong chemical smell. I knew this was normal and wasn't concerned. I opened the windows. However, I've been burning for about a month now and the smell is still there, although not as strong as it was before. I think (but am not completely sure) the smell now is the same smell from the beginning. It's not bad enough to keep the windows open, but it's definitely still a concern. I have started having chest pains in this time (may or may not be related). My wife complains of occasional headaches. So, we're pretty worried. The smell doesn't typically happen with a small fire. But when the stove top gets around 550F on the top surface (measured with an IR thermometer), that seems to be about the point that I get the smell. It spreads throughout the house and tends to collect in certain areas (seems to follow the heat). I have had the stove quite a bit hotter than that several times, which I thought would have cured the paint by now. Is it normal to still have a smell a month in? It was a floor model that I bought that had apparently been on the floor of the store for 2 years (never fired in the store). So, maybe they put more paint on it than a non-floor model would have (in order to keep it looking nice on the floor). Any thoughts? I'm very frustrated because I love the stove, but am very worried about the smell. Thanks in advance.
