Safety Notices
• BURN SOLID, NATURAL WOOD FUEL ONLY. DO NOT BURN ANY OTHER FUEL.
• DO NOT USE CHEMICALS OR FLUIDS TO START A FIRE. DO NOT BURN GARBAGE OR FLAMMABLE FUELS.
• DO NOT USE A GRATE OR ELEVATE THE FIRE. BUILD THE FIRE DIRECTLY ON THE HEARTH.
• IF THIS ROOM HEATER IS NOT PROPERLY INSTALLED, A HOUSE FIRE MAY RESULT. TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THIS MANUAL. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE, BODILY INJURY, OR LOSS OF LIFE.
• CONTACT LOCAL BUILDING OR FIRE OFFICIALS ABOUT RESTRICTIONS AND INSTALLATION INSPECTION REQUIREMENTS IN YOUR AREA.
• ANY EXISTING CHIMNEY SYSTEM MUST BE INSPECTED BEFORE INSTALLATION OF THIS APPLIANCE.
• DO NOT CONNECT THIS STOVE TO ANY AIR DISTRIBUTION DUCT OR SYSTEM.
• EXTREMELY HOT WHILE IN OPERATION! KEEP CHILDREN, CLOTHING, AND FURNITURE AWAY. CONTACT WILL CAUSE SKIN BURNS. USE A CHILD GUARD SCREEN TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL CONTACT BY SMALL CHILDREN.
• INSTALL CO SMOKE DETECTORS IN THE LIVING AREA AND BEDROOMS OF YOUR HOME. TEST THEM REGULARLY AND INSTALL FRESH BATTERIES TWICE ANNUALLY.
WHEN INSTALLED IN THE SAME ROOM AS THE STOVE, A SMOKE OR CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR SHOULD BE LOCATED AS FAR FROM THE STOVE AS POSSIBLE TO PREVENT THE ALARM SOUNDING WHEN ADDING FUEL.
• Avoid creating a low pressure condition in the room where the stove is operating. Be aware that operation of an exhaust fan or clothes dryer can create a low pressure area and consequently promote flow reversal through the stove and chimney system. In some cases, the optional Outside Air Kit #154335 can be used to alleviate this condition. The chimney and building, however, always work together as a system - provision of outside air, directly or indirectly to an atmospherically vented appliance will not guarantee proper chimney performance. Consult your local Jøtul authorized dealer regarding specific installation/performance issues.
• Jøtul strongly recommends that this stove be installed by a professional solid fuel technician, or that you consult one if you do the work yourself. Also, consult your insurance company regarding any other specific requirements.

1. Installation
1.1 Assembly Before Installation
The Jøtul F 500 V3 is shipped with the flue collar attached in the top position and the front ash lip and combustor monitor (thermometer) inside the stove.
• Changing the Flue Collar to Rear Exit: While holding the M6 flange nuts on the inside of the flue collar to keep them from falling into the stove, use a 10 mm open end wrench or socket wrench to remove the two M6 bolts with M6 fender washers. Orient the flue collar to the rear and use the same hardware to re-attach it to the stove.
• Take out the front ash lip, which is inside the burn chamber. The ash lip is placed loosely on top of the base plate.
• See section 5.5 for combustor monitor installation.
2. Chimney and Chimney Connector Requirements
2.1 Chimney Connector
The chimney connector is a single walled pipe used to connect the stove to the chimney. For use with the Jøtul F 500 V3, the chimney connector must be 6” (152mm) in diameter, with a minimum thickness of 24 gauge black steel. Attach the flue collar to the chimney connection using 2 self-drilling screws found in the miscellaneous kit. • Aluminum and Galvanized steel pipe is not
acceptable for use with the Jøtul F 500 V3. These materials cannot withstand the extreme temperatures of a wood fire and can give off toxic fumes when heated.
• Do not use the connector pipe as a chimney.
• Each chimney connector or stove pipe section must be installed to the stove flue collar and to each other with the male (crimped) end toward the stove. See figure 2. This prevents any amount of condensed or liquid creosote from running down the outside of the pipe or the stove top.
• All joints must be secured with three sheet metal screws.
• For the best performance the chimney connector should be as short and direct as possible, with no more than two 90° elbows.
• The maximum horizontal run is 36” (915mm) and a recommended total length of stove pipe should not exceed 10 feet.

• Horizontal runs must slope upward 1/4” (6,35mm) per foot toward the chimney.
• Where passage through a wall or partition of combustible construction is desired, the installation must conform with NFPA 211 and is also addressed in this manual.
• No part of the chimney connector may pass through an attic or roof space, closet or other concealed space, or through a floor or ceiling.
• All sections of the chimney connectors must be accessible for cleaning.
• Where passage through a wall or partition of combustible construction is desired, the installation must conform with NFPA 211 and is also addressed in this manual.
• Do not connect this unit to a chimney flue servicing another appliance.
2.2 General Chimney Requirements
The F 500 V3 is approved for use with: 1. A code-approved masonry chimney and flue liner. 2. A prefabricated chimney complying with the
requirements for Type HT (2100°F) chimneys per UL 103 .
An existing chimney system must pass a UL 1482 Level II inspection conducted by a qualified technician or building official.
The chimney flue size should not be less than the cross-sectional area of the stove flue collar, and not more than three times greater than the cross-sectional area of the flue collar.
Chimney Considerations
When choosing a chimney type and location in the house, keep this in mind: it is the chimney that makes the stove work, not the stove that makes the chimney work. The chimney allows the temperature difference between inside and outside air to create suction, called “draft”, which pulls air through the stove necessary to support combustion. Since draft is the force which moves air from the stove up through the chimney, its strength is critical to proper stove function. Besides air pressure differential, draft strength is affected other factors including: • chimney condition and height • surrounding construction, other buildings * nearby trees, local geography • wind conditions and climate

4

Any of the preceding conditions can adversely affect performance. Weak or erratic draft can cause “backpuffing”- a condition when smoke leaks into the room through the stove or chimney connector joints. Poor draft will also make it difficult to maintain a steady, controlled burn and lead to creosote accumulation in the chimney or combustor.
A short, masonry chimney on the exterior of a house will promote poor performance. This is because it will be difficult to initiate and maintain temperatures warm enough to sustain adequate draft. In extremely cold northern areas, it may be necessary to reline the chimney or extend its height to help improve performance. Conversely, a tall, masonry chimney inside the house will warm more quickly and retain heat longer.
On the other hand, overly strong draft can also cause a different set of issues such as excessive temperatures and short burn times
Ideally, whether masonry or prefabricated, the chimney should be centrally located inside the house where it will be least affected by exterior conditions and the stove’s radiant heat can be most evenly dispersed.
The following guidelines give the necessary chimney requirements based on the national code, ANSI-NFPA 211. However, many local codes differ from the national code to take into account climate, altitude, or other factors.
NOTE: Consult your local code authority to
determine what building and fire codes apply in your area before installing your new stove. Your local inspector has final authority in approving your installation.
2.3 Masonry Chimneys
A masonry chimney must conform to the following guidelines: • The chimney flue size should not be less than the
cross-sectional area of the stove flue collar.
• The cross-sectional area of the flue of a chimney with no walls exposed to the outside below the roofline shall not be more than three times the cross-sectional area of the stove flue collar.
• The cross-sectional area of a chimney flue having one or more walls exposed to the outside below the roofline shall not be more than two times the crosssectional area of the stove flue collar.
• Larger chimney flues should be relined with a listed or code approved liner.
• The masonry chimney must have a fireclay liner or

F 500 V3 Oslo 4 / 20
equivalent, with a minimum thickness of 5/8” (16mm) and must be installed with refractory mortar. There must be at least 1/4” (6,35mm) air space between the flue liner and chimney wall. • The fireclay flue liner must have a nominal size of 8” X 8”, and should not be larger than 8” X 12”. If a round fireclay liner is to be used it must have a minimum inside diameter of 6” (157mm) and not larger than 8” (208mm) in diameter. • If a chimney with larger dimensions is to be used, it should be relined with an appropriate liner that is code approved. • The masonry wall of the chimney, if brick or modular block, must be a minimum of 4”(106mm) nominal thickness. A mountain or rubble stone wall must be at least 12” (310mm) thick. • A newly-built chimney must conform to local codes and in their absence must recognize national regulations. When using an existing chimney, it must be inspected by a licensed professional chimney sweep, fire official, or code officer, to ensure that the chimney is in proper working order. • No other appliance can be vented into the same flue. • An airtight clean-out door should be located at the base of the chimney.
2.4 Prefabricated Chimneys
A prefabricated metal chimney must be tested and listed for use with solid fuel burning appliances to High Temperature (HT) Chimney Standard UL 103 for the U.S.
The manufacturer’s installation instructions must be followed precisely. Always maintain the proper clearance to combustibles as established by the pipe manufacturer. This clearance is usually a minimum of 2” (56mm), although it may vary by manufacturer or for certain chimney components.
2.5 Chimney Height
The minimum chimney height is 15 feet (4.57 m). The chimney must also be at least 3 feet higher than the highest point where it passes through the roof and at least 2 feet higher than the highest part of the roof or structure that is within 10 feet of the chimney, measured horizontally. See figure 3.
Chimneys shorter than 14 feet may not provide adequate draft. This could result in smoke spilling into the room from the stove when loading the stove, or when the door is open. In addition, inadequate draft can cause back puffing, which is a build up of gases inside the firebox.

5

F 500 V3 Oslo 4 / 20
Other times, chimney height can create excessive draft which can cause high stove temperatures and short burn times. Excessive drafts can be corrected by installing a butterfly damper. If you suspect you have a draft problem, consult your dealer.
2.6 Wall Pass-throughs
When your installation unavoidably requires the chimney connector to pass through a combustible wall to reach the chimney, always consult your local building officials, and be sure any materials to be used have been tested and listed for wall pass-throughs.
In the U.S:
The National Fire Protection Association’s publication, NFPA 211, Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents and Solid Fuel Burning Appliances permits four methods for passing through a combustible wall. Before proceeding with any method be sure to consult with your local building officials to discuss any local code requirements.
Common Method: • When passing through a combustible wall to a masonry
chimney this method requires the removal of all combustible materials from at least 12” (310mm) around the chimney connectors proposed location. With a 6” (157mm)round liner the minimum area required would be 31” x 31” (792x792mm) square. • The space is then filled with at least 12” (310mm)of brick around a fireclay liner. Remember, the liner must be ASTM C35 or equivalent, with a minimum wall thickness of 5/8” (16mm). • It is important to remember to locate the pass-through at least 18”(457mm) from the ceiling for proper clearance to combustibles. • It will be necessary to cut wall studs, install headers, and construct a sill frame to maintain the proper dimensions and to support the weight of the brick. • The bricks must be solid brick with a minimum of • 3 1/4 “ (83mm) thick (4” (106mm) nominal). • Refractory mortar must be used at the junction of the chimney and the pass-through liner. The pass-through liner must not penetrate the chimney liner beyond the inner surface of the chimney liner. Use extreme care when constructing the hole in the chimney liner, the tiles can shatter easily. See figure 4.
Consult your local building inspector and authorized Jøtul Dealer for other approved wall pass-through methods.

3. Connecting to the Chimney
3.1 Masonry Chimney Thimble
When connecting the stove to a masonry chimney through a “thimble” (the opening through the chimney wall to the flue), the thimble must be lined with ceramic tile or metal and be securely cemented in place. See fig. 4. • The chimney connector/stove pipe must slide completely
inside the thimble to the inner surface or the flue liner. A slip-connector may be used to permit adjustability and ease maintenance / cleaning access. See fig. 5.
• The connector pipe or thimble sleeve must not protrude into the flue liner where it could restrict the free flow of exhaust gas and cause poor stove performance.
• The chimney connector should be sealed at the thimble with refractory cement and each connector joint must be secured with three sheet metal screws.
• Do not connect this stove to a chimney flue servicing another appliance of any kind.
3.2 Hearthmount Into a Masonry Fireplace
Consult your local building inspector for codes on fireplace installation. The Jøtul F 500 V3 has a rear exit flue collar height of 28 1/4” (718 mm) when installed with standard legs. Substitution of Short Legs will lower the height to 26” (660 mm).
• The NFPA 211 standard (12.4.5.1) requires that a masonry flue serving a wood-burning appliance must be sealed off from room air. This can be accomplished by two methods: 1) Replace the fireplace damper with a fixed steel plate through which the connector pipe must extend from the stove to the chimney flue tile. See figure 6. Alternatively, the flue may be sealed off by installing a non-combustible plate at the fireplace opening. In either case, the block-off plate and connector pass-through must be sealed using high-temperature or other appropriate sealant. Jøtul recommends a block-off plate installed in any fireplace damper area for improved heat efficiency. 2) Install a full, listed chimney liner from the stove to a direct connection at a sealed chimney cap. Your Jøtul dealer can recommend an approved system.
• See Section 2.3 on page 5 for cross-sectional flue size requirements related to interior vs exterior chimneys.
• If the chimney liner is too large to accommodate the stove, a code-approved relining system must be installed to resize the flue.
• The fireplace installation must also conform to the tested clearances to surrounding trim and mantels. See clearance specifications on pages 22-23. In addition, a fireplace installation must also comply with the floor protection guidelines specified on page 7.

F 500 V3 Oslo 4 / 20

3.3 Prefabricated Chimneys
The Jøtul F 500 V3 may be connected to a prefabricated metal chimney following the pipe manufacture’s instructions. Use all required components. Most manufacturers offer an adaptor that attaches to the bottom section of the metal chimney and permits the connector pipe to be secured to it using three sheet metal screws. See figure 7.
4. Clearances to Combustibles
4.1 Floor Protection Requirements
The F 500 V3 requires floor protection as specified below in any installation unless installed on concrete over earth. * The supplied bottom heat shield must be installed on
the stove. • Floor protection under the stove must be composed of
continuous, non-combustible materials for protection against sparks and embers. * Individual sections of floor protection must be mortared or otherwise sealed together to prevent spark penetration to combustibe floor materials. Any carpeting must be removed from under the floor protection. • Alcove Installations: In addition to the Bottom Heat Shield, floor protection must include materials having a minimum R-value of 1.6. See Appendix B, page 27, to determine various material R-values.
The hearth protection surface must extend continuously: • A minimum of 18” (457mm) in front of the stove and from
the left side load door (measured from the door opening). • 8” (200mm) on the right side and back of the stove
(measured from side and back panels). This will result in a minimum floor protection of
54.25”W X 50,5”D (1378mm x 1283mm). See figure 8. For a rear vent installation, the floor protection must also
extend under the stove pipe a minimum of 2” (50mm) beyond either side of the pipe. Fig. 8.
Alternate Hearth Protection
A hearth pad measuring 46”wide X 50,5” deep (1168mmx1283mm) can be used only if the left side door is locked to prevent use. Door Lock Kit #155850 is available for this purpose from your dealer.

4.2 Clearances to Walls and Ceilings
The following clearances have been tested to UL and ULC standards and are the minimum clearances specifically established for the F 500 V3.
The following diagrams give the required clearances you must maintain when installing the F 500 V3 near combustible surfaces. See pages 22-23.
A combustible surface is anything that can burn (i.e. sheet rock, wall paper, wood, fabrics etc.). These surfaces are not limited to those that are visible and also include materials that are behind non-combustible materials.
If you are not sure of the combustible nature of a material, consult your local fire officials. Contact your local building officials about restrictions and installation requirements in your area.
“Fire Resistant” materials are considered combustible; they are difficult to ignite, but will burn. “Fire-rated” sheet rock is also considered combustible.
4.3 Using Shields to Reduce Clearances
Pipe shields: When using listed pipe shields to reduce the connector clearance to combustibles, it must start 1”(25,4mm) above the lowest exposed point of the connect pipe and extend vertically a minimum of 25” (635mm) above the top surface of the stove.
Double wall pipe: Listed double wall pipe is an acceptable alternative to connector pipe heatshields.
Wall-Mounted Protection: When reducing clearances through the use of wall mounted protection:
Refer to NFPA 211, Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents and Solid Fuel Burning Appliances, for acceptable materials, proper sizing and construction guidelines.
Jøtul F 500 V3 Rear Heatshield Kit #154332
This shield is specifically approved for use to reduce clearances on this appliance only. No other heat shield may be used.
See pages 22-23 for complete clearance specifications and diagrams.

F 500 V3 Oslo 4 / 20
NOTE: Accessories approved for clearance reduction have been developed by many manufacturers. Be sure that any accessory you choose has been tested and listed by an independent laboratory and carries the laboratory’s testing mark. Follow all of the manufacturer’s instructions. Always contact your local building inspector or fire officials about restriction and requirements in your area. Your local officials have final authority for installation approval.
4.4 Alcove Installation
Use of the left side load door is prohibited in alcove installations. Install 155840 Side Door Lock kit available from your dealer. Ths appliance may be installed in an alcove provided: (See figures 9 and 10) 1. The stove must be installed with listed double walled
pipe. 2. In a protected alcove installation both side walls and
rear wall must be protected per NFPA 211. The wall protection must be elevated 1”(24,5mm) from the floor and at least 1” (24,5mm)off the combustible wall to allow for an air-flow. 3. The height of the wall protection including the bottom air space must be 48”(1219mm). 4. The bottom heatshield is required in all Alcove installations. See figure 16 for installation instructions. 5. Hearth protection material must consist of: a) a UL/ULC listed Type II Thermal Floor Protector or, b) material having a minimum r value of 1.6 (see appendix B). 6. Minimum ceiling height in an unprotected installation, off the top of the stove is 41”(1041 mm). The minimum ceiling height off the top of the stove in a protected ceiling installation is 15”(380mm).
Use of the left side load door is prohibited in alcove installations. Install 155840 Side Door Lock kit available from your dealer.

4.5 Mobile Home Installations
The F 500 V3 has been approved for use in mobile homes in the U.S. provided: 1. The stove is physically secured to the floor or the
mobile home. Use Jotul Floor Mounting Kit #750304. The structural integrity of the mobile home must be maintained.
2. All chimney components, including chimney sections, supports, spark arrestor, etc., shall comply with the Standard for Factory-built Chimneys for Residential Type and Building Heating Appliances, UL 103 Standard for 650°C Factory-built Chimneys.
3. The chimney shall be attached directly to the stove and extend at least 3 ft. (0.9m) above the roof. Termination must be at least 2 ft. (0.6m) above the hightest elevation of any part of the mobile home within 10 ft. (3m).
4. In order to allow for transportation of the mobile home, the chimney termination shall be readily removed at or below an elevation of 13.5 ft. (4.1 m) above ground level and reinstalled without use of special tools or instructions.
5. A spark arrester must be installed at the termination. The net free area of the arrester above the chimney outlet must not be less than four times the net area of the chimney outlet, and the vertical height of the arrester must not be less than one-half the diameter of the chimney flue. Openings shall not permit the passage of a sphere having a diameter larger than 1/2” (12.7 mm), and shall permit the passage of a sphere having a diameter of 3/8” (9.6 mm).
6. Direct connection of the stove to an outside air source is required. Use Outside Air Kit #154335. Do not substitute any other connection method or device. See page 15 for more details. Duct termination must not be installed at a level that is higher than the air inlet located at the bottom of the stove.
7. When the chimney exits the mobile home at a location other than through the roof, and exits at a point 7 ft. (2.1 m) or less above the ground level, a guard or other method of enclosing the chimney, must be provided at the point of exit for a height up to 7 ft. Openings of this chimney guard shall not permit penetration of a 3/4 in. (19.1 mm) diameter rod, or contact with the chimney by a 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) diameter rod inserted through the opening a distance of 4 inches (102 mm).
DO NOT INSTALL THE STOVE IN A BEDROOM OR SLEEPING AREA.
Always consult your local building inspector or fire officials to determine other mobile home restrictions and requirements in your area prior to installing the stove.

5. Operation
Please read the following section completely before building a fire in your new Jøtul F 500 V3.
DO NOT OVERFIRE THIS HEATER. Attempts to achieve heat output rates that exceed heater design specifications can result in permanent damage to the heater and to the catalytic combustor.
5.1 Combustion Efficiency
The Jøtul F 500 V3 has an EPA test High Heating Value (HHV) efficiency rate of 78.4%. There are, however, aspects of efficiency that you should be aware of in order to get the most from your stove. Operation habits and fuel moisture can have a significant effect on efficiency. Poorly seasoned wood having a higher than optimum moisture content, can reduce the amount of energy transferred to the living area as a result of the energy expended to evaporate the excess fuel moisture in order for the wood to burn. Operational habits - such as not building a robust kindling fire to readily ignite the larger fuel pieces - can result in an inefficient, smoldering fire. Additionally, most modern wood heaters’ optimum performance and efficiency are at the medium to medium-low burn rates.
The location of the stove can also have a significant effect on heating efficiency, primarily in regard to distribution of the heat. For example, a wood heater centrally located in an open living area, will likely provide better circulation of heat than will a stove located in a room adjacent to the larger living area.
5.2 Minimize Carbon Monoxide Emissions
Testing the F 500 V3 to CSA B415.1-10 resulted in a carbon monoxide emission rate of .50 grams per minute. There are properties related to CO generation that you should be aware of. Most means of combustion produce CO, including wood fire. You can greatly reduce CO levels by maintaining a well-established fire and avoiding operation that produces a smouldering, smoky fire. We highly recommend that a CO monitor (detector) be installed in the same room as the stove. The monitor should be located as far away as possible from the stove to avoid alerts when the doors are opened.

F 500 V3 Oslo 4 / 20
5.3 Wood Fuel and Performance
Use dry wood.
The F 500 V3 is designed to burn natural wood only. Higher efficiencies and lower emissions generally result when burning air-dried, seasoned hardwoods, as opposed to softwoods, green or freshly cut hardwoods. Wood that has been air-dried for a period of 6 to 14 months will provide the cleanest, most efficient heat. Wood seasoned more than 2 years will burn too quickly to take advantage of the stove’s low end efficiency strength.
A seasoned log will have many check marks (cracks) through the ends and be lighter than an unseasoned log which will show few or no check marks.
We recommend using a moisture meter that incorporates probes to determine the moisture content of your wood. Meters are available at your dealer or local hardware store. For purposes of home heating, your fuel should have a moisture content between 12 - 20% on the meter gauge. Wood with higher moisture content will burn, however, very inefficiently. Most of its heat value will be lost through evaporation, driving water out of the wood. Worse, that moisture will condense as creosote in the relatively cool chimney flue, increasing the potential for a chimney fire and weak draft strengh. Use of unseasoned wood defeats the purpose of any modern wood-burning stove.
BURN UNTREATED WOOD ONLY. DO NOT BURN: • Coal; • Garbage; • Synthetic fuel or logs; • Material containg rubber, including tires; • Material containing plastics; • Waste petroleum products, asphalt products, paints,
paint thinners or solvents; • Materials containing asbestos; • Construction or demolitioin debris; • Railroad ties or pressure-treated wood; • Manure or animal remains; • Lawn clippings or yard waste; • Salt water driftwood or other previously salt-water;
saturated materials; • Unseasoned wood; • Colored paper, or • Paper products, cardboard, plywood, or particle board.
(The prohibition against burning these materials does not include the use of fire starters made from paper, cardboard, saw dust, wax or similar substances for the purpose of starting a fire.)

• Burning of any of the materials listed above can result in the release of toxic fumes, cause smoke, or render the catalytic combustor permanently damaged and ineffective.
• IT IS AGAINST FEDERAL REGLATIONS TO OPERATE THIS WOOD HEATER IF THE CATALYTIC ELEMENT IS DEACTIVATED OR REMOVED.
• NEVER USE GASOLINE, GASOLINE-TYPE LANTERN FUEL, KEROSENE, CHARCOAL LIGHTER FLUID OR SIMILAR LIQUIDS TO START OR “FRESHEN-UP” THE FIRE. ALWAYS KEEP SUCH LIQUIDS AWAY FROM THE HEATER AT ALL TIMES.
• NOTE: Prevent logs from resting directly on the glass panel. Logs should be spaced off of the glass enough to promote unrestricted air flow within the firebox.
5.4 F 500 V3 Control Functions
The F 500 V3 is designed to support efficient combustion and optimal heat transfer by directing air to the fire through two separate channels; Primary and Secondary. See figure 11.
Primary Air is manually regulated by a lever- controlled valve located at the front center of the stove, directly below the door. See fig. 12. The lever position controls the volume of primary air entering the firebox and thereby affects fire intensity, heat output and burn time. Primary air is directed to the main body of the fire through air ports at the front of the stove. Separate manifolds at each side also deliver pre-heated primary air above the front doors and create an ’air-wash” to help keep the viewing glass clean.
Secondary air is automatically regulated to promote combustion of volatile gas that would otherwise be exhausted to the atmosphere unburned. The secondary air inlet is located at the back of the stove where a temperature-sensitive bimetal coil continuously varies the volume of air introduced to fire. This air is preheated as it passes over the back and top of the firebox, directed to the secondary combustion baffle and delivered to the catalytic combustor. The combustor maintains the high temperatures necessary to burn volitile gas that would otherwise pass unburned into the atomosphere. When the combustor is functioning, no smoke will be observed exiting the chimney. This is evidence that the stove is operating in the so-called ”sweet-spot” wherein optimum efficiency is realized.

Secondary air is always available to the secondary combustion baffle and the catalytic combustor. The automatic control valve funtions to provide the appropriate amount of secondary air relative to maintaining optimal clean combustion.
When first starting or reviving the fire: the primary control lever should be set to the far right position, which permits the maximum amount of air into the stove. The greater the amount of air entering the stove, the hotter and faster the fire will burn.
Moving the lever to the left reduces the airflow into the stove and thereby prolonging the fire at a lower heat output. See figure 12.

Control Settings and Performance

Use the table below as a guide to achieve the best performance from your stove.

Burn Rate Low Med. Low Med. High High

Air Control Setting Fully to the Left 1/4” to the Right 3/8” to the Right Fully to the Right High

Blower Speed Minimum Minimum Medium

The valve lever should be set at Full Open (Right) for the first five minutes of the Low, Medium Low and Medium High burn rate.

5.5 Using the Combustor Monitor

Determining the primary air setting for the best overall performance for your particular needs and installation will be established over time through trial and error. Each installation has unique physical and environmental characteristics that will affect stove performance. Other variables affecting combustion efficiency are cordwood species and moisture content. Taking those variables into consideration, you should use the integrated Combustor Monitor to maintain the fire in the most efficient manner tailored to your specific needs and installation configuration.

You can readily monitor combustion efficiency by noting the temperature indicated on the thermometer shown in figure 13a. Follow this procedure to install the thermometer:
1. Remove the lower set screw on the right side panel of stove using a 3mm hex key as shown in fig. 13b. DO NOT REMOVE SET SCREW FOR TOP PLATE.
