SECTION I: FLUE SYSTEM
A. Existing Flue System
If you have chosen a freestanding unit, this stove is designed to connect to an
existing flue system, such as masonry or a pre-manufactured Class A flue system. If you
have a masonry flue system, the inner liner should be inspected carefully for cracks; if
there is no liner in your chimney, we recommend you install a steel liner or have one
installed. If you have an existing pre-manufactured system the inner liner should be
inspected for warping or buckling. Either type chimney system should be thoroughly
cleaned before installing your new stove. We strongly recommend you have a qualified
chimney sweep clean and inspect your entire system, as the sweep can spot problems
you might overlook. The sweep in most cases can make any necessary repairs or
recommend a qualified person to do so. It is not permissible to connect this unit to a
chimney that is servicing another unit.
B. Flue Size
The proper flue size is determined by measuring the inside diameter of the flue collar
on the unit. This stove is equipped with a six inch (6”) TOP EXHAUST FLUE COLLAR.
Therefore, the connector pipe should be six inches (6”) and never less in diameter than
the collar on the stove. The area of the chimney liner must also be equal to or greater
than the area of the flue collar on the stove. If the area of the flue is greater than the
collar, it should never be more than three (3) times greater.
Example:
The area of a six inch (6”) diameter flue collar is 28.87 square inches, therefore the
connector pipe should be at least six inches (6”) in diameter but no greater than 84.8
square inches.
The black connector pipe should be 24 gauge steel and eighteen inches (18”) from a
combustible wall or ceiling. This clearance can be reduced to six inches (6”) if you are
using a double wall or shielded pipe.
C. Installation of a New Flue System
1. Masonry Flue: In the event that you plan to install or have a system installed, there
are several approaches that you can take. In the middle and late seventies masonry
flue systems became very popular, and today this type system is satisfactory. If you
are considering a masonry system, you should consult with your local building
officials for the proper procedures on this type chimney. We recommend you consult
with and have your flue built by a licensed, bonded contractor. Most masonry
chimney systems are placed against an outside wall and extend upward beside the
house. The flue thimble is then inserted through the wall, making the connection with
the stovepipe and the vertical flue. Exercise extreme caution when drilling through
the wall -- you must maintain proper clearance between the connecting liner and any
combustible material in the wall.
We also recommend you have a flue clean-out door located at least two feet (2’)
below your thimble for easy cleaning of the system. This door should be made as
airtight as possible. It is the consumer’s responsibility to ensure the chimney system
is safe and in good operating condition. The manufacturer will not be held
responsible for an accident attributed to a unit connected to a faulty chimney system.
2. Pre-Manufactured Flue System: In the past few years pre-manufactured flue systems
have become very popular, because this type system is easily installed and, when
done correctly, is very safe. There are many pre-manufactured flue systems on the
market, and when making your choice it should be U.L., B.O.C.A. or I.C.B.O.
approved. Any of these systems are constructed of the proper materials and meet
the proper safety standards. Your local dealer normally handles an approved brand
of flue pipe. There are two very popular methods for installation of this type system.
The first, most popular and least expensive is through the ceiling and out the roof.
This is the most direct route and creates a good draw because it requires less pipe. It
is less expensive because insulated pipe is needed only from the ceiling to the roof
and above -- single wall 24 gauge or thicker pipe is used from the unit to the ceiling if
you maintain the eighteen inches (18”) clearance from all combustible material.
The second method for installing a pre-manufactured system is to exit through the
wall and run the system vertically up the outside of the structure. This method is
more expensive because more insulated pipe is required -- you must use insulated
pipe through the wall and up the outside of the structure. In either installation, proper
clearances to combustibles should be maintained. Your flue pipe manufacturer
furnishes a wall thimble or ceiling support box and, when installed properly, the
correct clearances are achieved. If you are unable to install this type system your
local dealer may be able to recommend a qualified contractor for this installation. It is
the customer’s responsibility to ensure that his system is installed properly and is in
good operating condition. The manufacturer will not be responsible for an accident
caused by a unit connected to a faulty flue system.
SECTION II: FLOOR AND WALL PROTECTION
A. Floor Protection
You will not need any floor protection if your floor is constructed of a noncombustible material such as brick or concrete. If your floor is constructed with a
combustible material such as hardwood, carpet or linoleum, you must place
protection between the stove and the combustible material.
There are many floor and wall board manufacturers, however, and you should be
very cautious in choosing the proper protection. The type board you choose should
be U.L. rated and listed. After examining the area in which you plan to place your
stove and determining it requires a board, the next step is to select the proper size.
The stove you choose will determine the size board that is required. The approved
protector board should be large enough to provide a minimum of eight inches (8”)
behind the unit, eight inches (8”) on either side and sixteen inches (16”) in the front
where the door is located. This stove requires a minimum of 48” x 60” floor
protection.
B. Wall Protection
Your unit can be placed within fifteen inches (15”) of a combustible wall such as
paneling, wallpaper or drywall. In some areas local codes may require thirty-six
inches (36”) from a combustible, therefore it is very important that you check with
local officials.
Note: Flue systems and flue pipe are not furnished with the unit.
SECTION III: FREESTANDING PLACEMENT AND INSTALLATION
The first problem you may encounter is getting your stove into your home -- all of
our stove products are well constructed, which makes them rather heavy. Three to
four adults can normally handle a unit, but we still recommend using a handcart.
Never attempt to handle a heating product alone!!! The door and firebrick can be
removed to lighten the unit; if this is done please make a note of the brick placement.
After the unit is placed into position, install the flue collar, spring handles and any
optional equipment.
Chimney Connector Pipe
The black pipe must be six inches (6”) in diameter and at least 24 gauge steel
pipe. Do not use aluminum or galvanized steel pipe, as it will not withstand the
extreme temperatures generated by the stove. Also, do not use single wall connector
pipe as a chimney -- you must connect your stove to a chimney comparable to those
listed in Section I of this manual. The crimped end of your pipe should be inserted
into the flue collar and, by doing this, all the pipe will be reversed. If you use this
method any creosote will run back down the inside of your pipe and not out of the
joints onto your stove. As a safety precaution, all joints should be sealed with high
temperature silicone (AC-RTV3) and secured with three sheet metal screws.
For proper operation the chimney connector should be as short as possible and
never exceed a six-foot (6’) horizontal run. Horizontal runs of chimney connector pipe
should have an upward slope of one quarter of an inch (1/4”) per foot. You will need
to maintain eighteen inches (18”) of clearance from the wall and ceiling unless you
are using double wall or shielded pipe.
Hot Air Hook-Up
You are now ready to distribute air from the 8” outlet on the top of the stove into your existing
duct system. Always install the add-on-furnace’s 8” diameter supply duct to the hot air trunk line
of your existing hot air system, as close to the vent fan as possible. Thirty (30) gauge pipe or
heavier should be used to make this connection; using the least possible amount of pipe will help
the heat transfer to your duct system. Cut an eight-inch diameter hole in the main trunk line of
the existing furnace duct, which is usually located on the top of the central furnace. Slide the
eight-inch pipe from the add-on-furnace into the hole and seal the connection with duct tape.
NOTE: Install a 8” 90 degree elbow inside this hole so that air flow from central furnace will not
be directed back into the hot air pipe from the add-on furnace.
Thirty gauge or thicker black pipe should be used for the first two feet and then thirty gauge
or thicker galvanized pipe can be used to connect to the existing furnace duct. Sheet metal
screws should be used to secure each joint of pipe and an aluminum heat resistant tape can be
wrapped around each joint to give an airtight seal.
The CA-18 blower can be installed by sliding the flange on the blower into the channel track
located at the bottom and rear of the unit.
The AC-12 thermostat can be installed by plugging the 110 connection into the wall and the
opposite end into the blower. The magnetic thermal disc should be attached to the rear wall of the
stove in such a manner that the power cord does not come into contact with the stove. The
thermostat will turn the blower on at approximately 140 degrees and shut the blower down at
approximately 90 degrees. The frequency of the blower cycle will be affected by the placement of
the thermostat on the rear of the unit. Mounting the thermostat closer to the blower will allow the
blower to come on less frequently. We recommend the thermostat be placed in the center of the
rear wall as a starting point.
SECTION IV: OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
A. Building a Fire
CAUTION: NEVER USE KEROSENE, GASOLINE, DIESEL FUEL OR CHARCOAL
LIGHTER FLUID TO LIGHT OR RE-KINDLE A FIRE.
NOTICE: Your new unit and the connector pipe may smoke for a short period of time. This
is called “cooking out” and is no cause for alarm. It is a good idea to open all doors and
windows in your dwelling during the first few hours of operation.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Place several wads of crushed paper over the entire bottom of the stove.
Place small dry sticks (kindling) of wood on the paper.
Be absolutely sure there are no combustibles in the immediate area of the stove.
Open the two cast iron dampers on the door by turning them counterclockwise.
Ignite the paper and leave the door cracked open until the fire is burning freely.
Once the kindling is burning freely, add several pieces of split dry wood to the fire.
Allow this wood to start burning well before closing the door completely.
7. Close the door and adjust the cast iron dampers on the door by turning them clockwise.
B. Draft Controls
This unit has two draft controls on the door that control the amount of combustion air
that enters the stove that in turn controls the amount of heat the unit generates. The
controls are turned in a counterclockwise direction to let in more combustion air and
produce more heat. You will have to experiment with the draft controls in order to find
the most efficient settings for your flue system, as no two flues are the same. If you have
a problem regulating this unit please contact our Customer Service department.
C. Do Not Over-Fire Your Unit
The use of flammable liquids, too much wood or burning trash in the stove may result
in an “over-fired” unit. If the chimney connector pipe or stove turns red or white, the
stove has been over-fired. In the event this happens, close the screw dampers on the
door immediately! This condition can ignite creosote in the chimney and cause a house
or chimney fire. This type fire can cause structural damage to the chimney system; do
not use the stove again until the entire system has been checked thoroughly and any
damaged parts repaired or replaced. A chimney sweep can normally perform this
inspection.
D. Every Day Fueling
This unit is designed to burn four to five hours on one good load of seasoned wood.
Prior to loading with new wood, pull the hot ashes to the front edge of the stove, and fill
the unit with seasoned wood. Allow the stove to burn freely for at least fifteen minutes
before closing the door -- once you have a good burn, close the door and adjust the
screw dampers for your desired heat level. Follow this procedure each time you add fuel
to the unit.
E. Ash Removal and Disposal
Regularly inspect the ash build-up in your stove and remove as necessary. Ashes
should be placed in a metal container with an airtight lid. The ashes should always be
placed on a non-combustible surface or on the ground, completely away from all
combustible materials. They should be retained in the metal container until all cinders
have thoroughly cooled. If you have a masonry chimney or a pre-manufactured chimney
system, it is essential to check for creosote build-up at least twice per month.
SECTION V: CARE AND MAINTENANCE
A. Gaskets
Each unit is equipped with a gasket kit around the door which should be replaced
every two years. To remove the old gasket, pull it from the channel and scrape off the
old adhesive, then place new adhesive in the channel and then the new gasket. Close
the door and allow twenty-four hours for the cement to harden prior to building a fire.
The replacement gasket for the door is part #AC-DGKC, and can be purchased from
your local dealer or ordered from the factory (phone 800-516-3636).
B. Firebrick (Part #AC-LB & AC-SB)
This stove is equipped with fourteen (14) large and seven (7) small high density, high
temperature firebrick. If the brick becomes chipped or cracked, especially on the sides of
the firebox, it should be replaced. This item can be ordered from your local dealer or
from the factory.
C. Finish (Part #AC-MCSP)
Your stove has been painted with 1200 degree Fahrenheit metallic charcoal paint that
will retain its original look for several years. If your stove gets wet and rust spots appear,
simply buff them off with plain steel wool and repaint with AC-MCSP. We recommend
using this paint, as others may not withstand the high temperatures of a wood stove and
may not adhere to the surface. You can order this paint from your local dealer or directly
from the factory.
D. Blower System (Part #AC-18)
This unit is equipped with a 465-CFM blower, which has sealed bearings. The intake
on this blower could become clogged with lint or dust over a period of time and it is a
good idea to check this prior to the start of each heating season.
SECTION VI: CHIMNEY AND FLUE PIPE MAINTENANCE
A. Chimney Maintenance
Cleaning your chimney is not a difficult task, however, we highly recommend a
professional be contacted for this job. He can not only clean the system, but will be able
to perform a complete inspection of it. A professional can spot problems that you may
overlook.
B. Flue Pipe Maintenance
When connecting your unit to the flue system, 24 gauge or thicker pipe should be
used. Your pipe should be cleaned at least once a year and inspected monthly. Most
people will clean their pipe and stove at the end of the heating season, as this will keep
odors from entering the house during the summer months. The flue pipe should be
replaced every three to five years, depending on the thickness of the pipe (thicker pipe
will last longer).
SECTION VII: THINGS THAT COULD CAUSE YOUR STOVE TO SMOKE
It is very important that installations are made airtight. This is best accomplished by
using furnace cement at all pipe joints and where the first section enters the stove and
the chimney thimble. Any existing air leaks will cause the air to draw at points where the
least resistance is offered -- such places are pipe joints, flue thimble, flue openings in the
chimney, ash clean-out doors and cracks in the chimney. These may cause air to enter
your system and not be drawn through the stove, which could result in a cool chimney,
causing the smoke to build up in the system and eventually come back into the house.
This is called “back puffing” and can be helped by sealing all troublesome areas so they
are airtight.
There are two main causes of chimney downdrafts that cause smoke to come back
into the house. One is from an air current being deflected down the chimney by nearby
objects such as trees, a building or a hill. The other is that in many chimneys the flue
gases chill too quickly as they pass up the chimney. When the flue gas chills too quickly,
it becomes heavy and will back up in the flue system; this will often result in "back
puffing," poor combustion and smoke odors in the house. Burning the stove hotter, in
some cases, will correct this situation (be careful not to “over-fire,” see Section IV of this
manual). If you have any of these problems or a poor-drawing chimney system, contact
your local dealer or call the factory.
SECTION VIII: WHAT CAUSES CREOSOTE ?
Creosote is caused by the condensation of the vapor that exists in the escaping
smoke -- the moisture level of your fuel will determine the density of this vapor. A severe
downdraft as discussed previously will also cause creosote. Moisture will form at the
coolest point in your chimney system and at this point will tend to form creosote. The ash
is picked up by the moisture in the system and will build up or run back down the inside
of your flue. This situation can sometimes be helped by installing an “open vented” type
chimney cap, which will allow the chimney to maintain more heat to create a better draw
and keep some of the wind currents from entering the flue system. This type cap will not
correct a poorly constructed chimney or one in bad need of repair, however -- in some
cases the system will require relining or even need to be rebuilt.
