The air intake control lever underneath the front lip of my Vermont Castings Resolute Acclaim woodstove #2490 moves normally, left to right, but it no longer regulates the airflow into the stove. It seems like the valve is stuck in the widest “open” position allowing a constant stream of air to flow into the bottom of the stove. Can anyone advise what the best remedy might be to fix this air valve issue.
