I replaced the door gasket last week didn't help
I have a window gasket that I will install Friday
Maybe that will do it
Perhaps someone with this stove can advise on how to increase airflow as I think that might be your issue. If the stove is burning correctly then there should not be any black buildup or creosote forming in the firebox or exhaust.
I adjusted the air coming in this morning right now it's looking good and warm let it run for the next couple hours and see what I get

Installed new window glass gasket
Adjusted the door and the pellet storage door
Cleaned all blowers and oiled all bearings
Flame looks a lot better and I am not smelling the smoke smell on start
It was very faint before and now nothing
Maybe there was a leak ?
The flame is looking a lot better
It's full and going to the top
Maybe I had a leak ?
If you could smell smoke then yes you did. There should not ever be any combustion products getting out of the stove into the room under normal operation. Probably one of the vent pipe joints had a pin hole leak and has since been blocked by flyash. There is a tape product you can use to seal these joints if you suspect a leak. Using a flashlight in a dark room can help find them if you still have any.
What bearings did you oil and how?
Was this not a brand new stove, why did you feel you had to change these gaskets?
Was a brand new stove
But was stored for a year before use
Only thing I could thing of lol
I oils the bearing on the exhaust fan
And pellet argers
Did your fan motors have ports to accept oil?
Yes and the bearing is exposed on one end
It throw some oil in there once a month
Getting 14 hours at setting number 5 on a hopper
Is this good ?
Awesome install nice job. I saw the photo of North American Pellets and brought back bad memories. Lets just say you can do significantly better than North American Pellets. Way better in fact. Been burning pellets since 2008. North American Pellets are the worst pellets I have burned in my stove. There is so much ash it looks like its snowing. Sorry to be negative but wanted to let you know before you go out and buy a ton of this crap.
Only bought 2 bags lol
What pellets you burning ?
I burn Cleanfire Pacific pellets, which are a soft wood. The softwood is easier/quicker to start with auto ignite and less ash. I just went 5 weeks before having to clean and dump the ash bin. With North American Pellets its every 2 weeks. I think I get a better more efficient burn overall with these cleaner pellets. I don't have a truck so the best I can do is pick up 20 bags a trip if I go fetch other cheaper pellets from HD or Lowes. I get the Cleanfire Pacific pellets delivered from woodpellets.com Yeah they are more expensive but it saves tons having them delivered. Tons of moving them 3 less times that is. Twice to get them in the SUV and once out of the SUV plus gas and my time. Hey its not for everyone. But its what I do.
Well it was my first year with a stove and it was a great one
I will be shutting it down any day I am glad winter is over but can't wait until next year nothing like naps on the couch in front of the warm stove .

So the heating season is coming to the end
So sad I really enjoyed the stove
But now it's time to make it better
Any ideas on upgrading the fresh air in take??
This is what I got now
The OAK we have came from the manufacturer. The only difference looks like ours is black so it matches the stove and pipe and it has a flange made for it. I'm sure you can make some kind of cool flange and paint the hose black. Outside ours has a box it attaches to with slots for air intake. i thought that would be great to keep birds out but not bugs so I cut a piece of stainless steel screen and put it inside the box.
I can post some pictures if you like.
Please do when you get a minute
Here ya go. Made me dust back there though.
Lol nice wonder if I could hard pipe it
New flooring today I am doing
Nice Job, did you take video or stills of hearth pad construction? We love your pictures!
