    My first post here, so hello all! I purchased a home with a Thermo-Pride WC-27 wood stove. I've downloaded a manual for the stove and there are still a few things I don't quite understand. First of all I will say that the previous owners of the home told me that this stove was not the original that was in the home. With that said, I was reading the manual about the fan/limit control and I don't think the placement is right on mine. Here is a picture.

    According to the manual it looks like it should be installed in line with the firebox.

    Also on the plenum there is the fan/limit control and there is also a therm o disc. I can't understand why there is both installed.

    And my last question is about the stock fan/limit control. I've had problems with the coil/spring sticking and not kicking on at the proper temperature. Here is a link to the stock replacment.

    I was wondering if I could replace it with something like these.

    Sorry for the lengthy first post, but I would just like to get to know my new furnace and keep it going safely for my family. Thanks!!
