If this stove is not properly installed, a house fire can occur. For your protection, follow the installation
instructions provided. We recommend contacting local building or fire officials regarding restrictions and
installation inspection requirements in your area. We also recommend that your Kuma stove be installed
by a properly trained and licensed installer, preferably an NFI (National Fireplace Institute) expert.
DO NOT CONNECT THIS UNIT TO A CHIMNEY FLUE SERVICING ANOTHER APPLIANCE.
Do not burn garbage or flammable fluids such as gasoline, naptha or engine oil. Do not use charcoal
lighter fluid or similar liquids to start or “freshen up” a fire in this heater. Keep all such fluids well away
from the heater while in use. Storing these fluids near a stove could cause a fire.
DO NOT CONNECT TO ANY AIR DISTRIBUTION OR DUCT SYSTEM.
DO NOT OVERFIRE. If any part of the stove or chimney glows, the stove is in an over fire condition. If
this happens, shut the air control off immediately. Over firing can cause damage.
WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL IN A SLEEPING ROOM.
7.
An improperly drafting stove can cause smoke and carbon monoxide to enter the home.
Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide monitors are recommended to be installed in the
same room as this heater.
8.
CAUTION: THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF THE FLOOR, WALLS, ROOF/CEILING, AND
VAPOR BARRIERS MUST BE MAINTAINED.
DO NOT USE SINGLE WALL PIPE OR CONNECTOR PIPE FOR ANY CHIMNEY
APPLICATION, EXTERIOR OR THROUGH THE WALL OR CEILING. Single wall pipe may only
be used as a connection between the stove and an approved masonry or stainless steel chimney. Single wall
pipe may not be used as a connector in mobile homes.
When installing into an existing masonry or metal chimney, examine the chimney system carefully. If you
have any questions, seek professional advice. We recommend having existing chimneys cleaned and
inspected by a qualified professional prior to the installation of your new stove.
NOTE ALL MINIMUM CLEARANCE REQUIREMENTS TO COMBUSTIBLES. Installation must
comply with minimum clearances as listed in this manual. (see section 6) Clearances may only be
reduced by means approved by the regulatory authority.
Do not operate this stove with the door in an open position, except for cracking open during start-up.
Continued operation with the door open can cause overheating of the unit, and expose embers to nearby
combustibles.
Do not operate with broken glass. Do not abuse glass such as striking or slamming the door.
This stove must be connected to a minimum 6” diameter listed chimney that complies with U.L. type 103HT
factory built chimney or a code approved masonry chimney. If the masonry chimney does not meet code, a
U.L. 1777 approved liner must be installed.
When connecting single wall or double wall connector pipe to the stove and chimney, use 3 screws per pipe
joint including 3 screws securing the pipe to the stove. Depending on the type of double wall pipe you are
using, it may also be necessary to fasten it at the chimney. Simpson Duravent’s DVL double wall uses a
snap lock connector and does not need screws.
Use only approved components for Chimney and Connector. Field fabricated or “makeshift” components
are not allowed and can cause a fire.
DO NOT USE THIS STOVE WITHOUT INSTALLING THE BAFFLE BOARDS AND CERAMIC
INSULATION PACKAGED WITH YOUR STOVE.
When connecting this stove to a masonry chimney, make sure you observe all applicable clearances
including walls, ceilings and other combustible material. A masonry chimney must be minimum 6” diameter
and constructed with a liner according to NFPA code 211. If you have any questions about the condition or
the code compliance of your masonry chimney, please speak with a qualified professional.

Section
2 – Free Standing Installation Instructions
INSTALL AND USE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE MANUFACTURER’S INSTALLATION
AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS ONLY. WHILE MOST ANYONE WITH BASIC
CARPENTRY SKILLS CAN SUCCESSFULLY AND SAFELY INSTALL THEIR KUMA WOOD
STOVE, IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT IT IS INSTALLED BY A QUALIFIED
PROFESSIONAL WHO IS PROPERLY TRAINED AND LICENSED–PREFERABLY AN NFI
CERTIFIED (NATIONAL FIREPLACE INSTITUE) EXPERT.
CAUTION: The structural integrity of the floor, walls, ceiling/roof, and vapor barriers must be
maintained. Use additional bracing if required. Never cut a load bearing wall or engineered truss. Use
elbows if necessary to offset the pipe.
CAUTION: NEVER INSTALL A STOVE IN A SLEEPING ROOM.
Stove Components: (each component has installation instructions included. See sec. 8 for a complete
list of accessories)
1. Stove body (K ASP)
2. Pedestal or leg kit (KA PK 2, KA LG SB, etc.)
3. Door Kit (KA DR 1B, KA DR 1P, etc.)
4. Outside air kit (KA OA 2)
5. Optional Blower (KA BL 3)
STEP 1: DETERMINING THE STOVE LOCATION:
When choosing a stove location there are a few things that should be considered.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Try to choose a location that is centrally located in the house.
Try to choose a location that will be easy to access from your wood storage area.
Survey the roof area above and around the location of the chimney exit. Be sure there are no
dormers, roof valleys or any other roof irregularities that could cause difficulty when trying to set
and seal the roof flashing.
If possible, survey the attic area above and around the location of the chimney. Be sure there are
no major obstructions such as plumbing, heating ducts, electrical wires, phone cables, etc. Also
check the crawl space below and around the stove location for the same obstructions.
WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL IN A SLEEPING ROOM
STEP 2: INSTALLING THE CHIMNEY.
Use only 6” Class A solid fuel chimney that has been U.L. Safety tested for wood stoves (type 103 HT)
IMPORTANT: These instructions are a very basic guideline for the steps to installing your chimney.
For complete, step by step instructions, refer to the installation manual that came with your chimney.
Chimney installation instructions are usually located in the box with the chimney cap or chimney
support components. If you have any questions about the installation of your chimney, please
contact the dealer where you purchased your stove.
CAUTION: Use only pre-fabricated, listed chimney and connector components. Field fabricated
components and/or “makeshift” compromises could result in a chimney or house fire.
CAUTION: Inspect all chimney components for damage. Do not use any damaged chimney
components.

6.
Familiarize yourself with the clearances of the stove for the configuration in which you have
chosen to install, i.e. corner installation or straight wall installation (see section 6). Notice the
clearances listed for the chimney, this will help you determine the location of the hole in the
ceiling. Note: On metal roofs in snow regions, consideration must be given to snow loads above
the chimney that can slide in to chimney and severely damage it. Please consider snow breaks or
snow dividers to prevent damage.
Once you’ve determined the stove location based on the applicable clearances and connector type
(see section 6), be sure to check attic and roof for any obstructions. Install the chimney system
according to the step by step illustrated instructions that came with your chimney.
Special care needs to be exercised when passing the chimney through an attic space. An attic
insulation shield must be used in all chimney installations to ensure that no insulation can contact
the chimney pipe. If there is little or no attic space, or if you have a vaulted ceiling, use a tall
square cathedral ceiling support box to pass all the way through to the roof line to provide the
shielding.
Stability: If necessary, install a roof brace kit on the chimney to stabilize the chimney against
wind, etc. Generally, roof bracing is required if the chimney extends more than five feet above the
chimney exit point.
See illustrations in section 6 for all components required for factory-built chimneys, as well as
parts required to connect to an approved masonry chimney.
Chimney Height. The Installation Diagram in section 6 shows the minimum chimney height in
relation to the roof. With low pitch roofs or little attic space, the chimney can be too short. For
proper draft and best performance, a minimum overall height of connector pipe plus chimney
combined should be at least 12 feet tall, measured from the stove top to the chimney cap. If
necessary, add chimney.
STEP 3: OUTSIDE AIR SUPPLY
Outside Air – An outside air supply is required in all manufactured/mobile home installations.
1.
Kuma stoves does not particularly require that outside air be directly connected to this
stove, however, some state or local building codes may mandate outside air. If your state or local
building code requires an outside air supply use part# KA OA 2. If you are unable to supply a
direct connection to the stove or if you need additional ventilation due to room air starvation, we
suggest the following:
a. Provide a passive air supply to the home. The air vent should be a minimum of 3” in
diameter.
b. The air supply must be provided to the same room that the stove is installed in.
c. The air supply should utilize a barometric damper so that air is only supplied to the room
if the house pressure becomes negative.
Visit www.woodheat.org for more information on the use of outside air.
2.
3.
When building a hearth pad on site, be sure to leave an area open for the installation of the
outside air vent. Once the hearth is positioned according to the minimum clearances, locate and
mark out the hole for the 3” outside are vent. On a pedestal model stove, this hole may be
anywhere under the stove base. On a leg model stove, try and locate the hole to line up with the
hole in the bottom of the stove. On a pre-manufactured hearth, use a hole saw or circular saw to
cut through just the backing board then use a hammer and firmly hit the tile or stone on the top
side. If the backing board was cut to the correct depth, the tile or stone will break out very clean.
Also using a hole saw or circular saw cut the hole through the home floor into the crawl space. Be
sure to line this hole up with the one in the hearth.
If you are installing your outside air vent through the wall, use a 3” hole saw or reciprocating saw
to cut the hole through the wall. BE SURE TO CHECK FOR OBSTRUCTIONS IN THE
WALL.
8
STEP 4: INSTALLING THE HEARTH
1.
2.
3.
Free Standing Hearth size: The requirements for hearth size for the model Aspen with legs or a
pedestal are as follows: It must be non-combustible and extend at least 16” in front of the stove
face and 6” minimum beyond the sides and rear of the unit.
Free Standing thermal requirements: If your Kuma Aspen stove is installed as a freestanding
stove the hearth is only required to provide ember protection. The requirement for ember
protection is ANY non-combustible material with a MINIMUM thickness of 3/8”.
Insert Hearth Requirements (see fig. 5 pg. 22): If your Aspen is being installed as a fireplace
insert in either an approved masonry or factory-built fireplace, the following hearth protection is
required:
a. A 3/8” minimum non-combustible material under the insert that extends at least 16” in
front of the insert face as well as 6” to either side of the insert (this 16” is measured from
the face of the insert and not the ash lip).

STEP 5: Setting the stove and connecting to the chimney
1. Assemble the stove (legs, pedestal, ash pan, blower). Follow the installation instructions that
are included in each accessory box. Once the stove is assembled set the stove gently on the
hearth using cardboard to protect the hearth.
2. Position the stove on the hearth according to the clearances shown on the diagrams in section 6.
Be sure that the stove is at least minimum clearance from all combustible walls and materials. If
possible it is advisable to set the stove 1-2 inches further away from the combustibles than
required.
3. Using approved single (min. 24 MSG Black or 26 MSG Blued)- or double-wall pipe, (single wall
is not approved for a mobile home) connect the stove to the chimney. If necessary, use elbows to
offset the pipe so that the stove can remain at the correct clearance and still connect to the
chimney. Secure each pipe joint with three screws, using the screws provided with the pipe.
Secure the pipe to stove flue collar with 3 screws.
Special Requirements for mobile homes
2. If installing in a mobile home, drill a small hole through the hearth and route an 8 gauge copper
wire into the crawl space. Use a grounding connector or lug to attach the wire to the stove and to
the frame of the mobile home.
9
3.
4.
When required by local code, you will need to fasten the stove to the floor of the mobile home.
(This applies to mobile homes only). To fasten a leg model, simply mark the location of the hole
in the bottom of the legs, drill holes and bolt into the bottom of the leg from the crawl space. To
fasten a pedestal model, holes will need to be drilled in the pedestal base. Once the holes are
drilled in the base, mark the location on the floor and use bolts and nuts or lag screws to fasten.
The stove must be connected to a 6” factory-built chimney conforming to CAN/ULC-S629,
standard for 650C factory built chimneys and the top sections must be removable for
transportation of the mobile home.
Your stove is now ready for use. If your stove installation required a permit and requires inspection by the
local building department please do not forget to call for an inspection. It is important that your permit and
inspection be finalized, as some insurance companies will require the stove to be inspected. It is also a
great idea to give your insurance a call and let them know that you have installed a wood stove.
PLEASE REFER TO SECTION 4-“Wood Burning Operation Instructions” as well as “Before Operating”
checklist before lighting your first fire.

Section
3.1 –Masonry Fireplace installation
The Kuma model Aspen is certified for installation into a fireplace with a masonry chimney that is
manufactured in accordance with NFPA 211. A Safety listed 6” fireplace liner must be installed and
directly connected to the appliance. An approved U.L. listed metal liner must extend to the chimney top
terminating at the chimney cap.
To make sure that the fireplace flue is in good usable condition, contact a licensed professional
(certified chimney sweep or NFI certified technician).
Prior to installation:
1. Check for cracks, loose or damaged mortar joints, blockages, or extraordinary deterioration.
2. The chimney must have at least a 2” clearance to combustible inside and outside the house.
3. The chimney must have a 5/8” thick fireclay liner. If you have an older, unlined masonry
chimney, then you must install an approved chimney liner system including a thermal wrap that
will bring your existing chimney up to the requirements of U.L. 1777. Contact your dealer or a
licensed chimney professional if you have any questions.
4. Check for any gap existing between the masonry fireplace construction and the fascia masonry. If
there is a gap, seal with a high temperature masonry mortar.
5. If outside air is required by local building code then it should be connected to the back of the
fireplace prior to installation.
a. The outside air vent cannot exceed in length, the vertical height of the exhaust flue.
b. The outside air vent must be installed where it will remain free of snow, ice, or debris.
c. The outside air vent must not terminate close to exhaust vents.
Guidelines for installation:
1. Remove the 3 screws that affix the listing tag to the back of the stove. Important: Leave the tag
attached to the stove via the extendable lanyard. Place the tag in a location that will be easily
accessible by removing the surround panel (Suggested Locations: on the face of the fireplace
behind the surround panel or on top of the stove behind the surround panel).
2. Secure the damper in the open position.
3. Install a 6” diameter listed stainless steel flue liner according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
The flue collar on the stove must be attached to the end of the liner for quick installation and
removal:
a. Loosen the flue collar bolts and remove the collar from the stove.
b. Install the flue collar to the liner using 3 stainless steel sheet metal screws.
c. Slide the stove into place. (leveling bolts are supplied with the surround kit)
d. From inside the stove, reach through the flue collar, grab the flue collar and pull down to
the stove, lining up the holes in the collar with the bolt holes in the stove.
e. Tighten the bolts securing the flue collar to the stove
f. Install the baffle board and ceramic blanket into the stove using the directions supplied
with the baffle set.
4. Install the fireplace surround (KA FS 2P) using the instructions supplied with the kit.
SEE SECTION 6 FOR INSERT INSTALLATION CLEARANCES AND DIAGRAMS.
NOTE: Consideration must be given to ensure an adequate supply of combustion air for your insert.
*Make sure the air cover on the back of the stove is removed
*If your fireplace is equipped with an outside air source, then simply make sure that vent is
open. As with any vent open to the outside, make sure there is a rodent screen installed to
prevent any unwanted intrusion.
*If an outside air direct connection is desired, the parts included in the Kuma outside air kit
(part # KA-OUTSIDEAIR) will make this connection possible.
*If room air is used, the small gaps that naturally occur between the surround kit and the face
of the fireplace should be adequate for combustion air. Do not insulate behind the surround
panel. If combustion appears lazy, try installing some small spacers at the surround panel
edge so that it will stand off from the fireplace face ¼”. It is up to you to make sure there is
an adequate free air supply for optimum performance from your insert.
11
Section
3.2 – Factory Built Fireplace installation
The fireplace must not be altered, except for the exceptions listed below. A permanent metal warning label
must be attached to the back of the fireplace, stating that the fireplace may have been altered to
accommodate the insert, and must be returned to original condition for use as a conventional fireplace. The
following modifications are permissible: removal of damper, removal of smoke shelf or baffle, removal of
ember catches, removal of fire grates, removal of viewing screen/curtain, and removal of doors.
The factory built chimney must be listed per UL 127 (US), and meet type HT requirements of UL 103
(US). Factory built fireplace chimneys tested to UL 127-1998, may be at the fireplace manufacturer’s
option, tested to the same criteria as UL 103 HT requirements. If the chimney is not listed as meeting HT
requirements, or if the factory built fireplace was tested prior to 1998, a full height listed chimney liner
must be installed from the appliance flue collar to the chimney top. The liner must meet type HT
requirements (2100 F) per UL 1777 (US). The liner must be securely attached to the insert flue collar and
the chimney top. To prevent room air passage to the chimney cavity of the fireplace, seal the damper area
with high temperature sealant.
The Kuma model Aspen is certified for installation into a properly installed factory built fireplace in the
U.S. A Safety listed 6” fireplace liner must be installed and directly connected to the appliance and must
extend to the original factory built chimney cap
Prior to installation:
1. The following items may be removed in order to facilitate the liner installation: Smoke
Shelf/Baffle, Wood Grate, Viewing Screen, Damper, and ember catches.
2. The Fireplace itself must not be altered (with the exception of damper removal). Any nonfunctioning trims that are removed must be kept so that the fireplace can be restored to full
working order if the insert is ever removed.
3. The local building department has the final authority to approve, with a permit, the installation of
this appliance into a factory built fireplace. DO NOT INSTALL WITHOUT A PERMIT.
4. Check for any gap existing between the masonry fireplace construction and the fascia masonry. If
there is a gap, seal with a high temperature masonry mortar.
5. The installation of the fireplace liner must in no way limit the airflow of the factory built chimney.
6. The original factory built chimney cap must be reinstalled after the installation of the liner.
Notes on manufactured homes and fireplaces:
1. If you are installing the Aspen into a manufactured home, the fireplace must be manufactured
home approved with outside air capabilities.
2. The outside combustion air that is fueling the fireplace must be supplied to the air intake on the
back of the Aspen stove. Where the outside combustion air enters the fireplace will most likely
vary depending on the particular fireplace. You will need to make sure that the air entering the
fireplace will not be blocked by setting the unit into place.
3. All of the above guidelines in this section must be followed.
Guidelines for installation:
Use only pre-fabricated, listed components. Use of field fabricated components and/or using
“makeshift” compromises could result in a house fire.
1.
Remove the 3 screws that affix the listing tag to the back of the stove. Important: Leave the tag
attached to the stove via the extendable lanyard. Place the tag in a location that will be easily

Section
4 – Wood burning operation instructions
IMPORTANT:
Your new KUMA wood stove is shipped with the baffle packaged in a bag with the stove to eliminate
damage in shipping. Please follow the detailed installation instructions included with the baffle materials.
It is important that the baffle is correctly installed, if you have any questions, please contact the dealer
where you purchased your stove, or call us directly at 888-714-5294
CAUTION: HOT WHILE IN OPERATION. KEEP CHILDREN, CLOTHING, FURNITURE,
AND ALL COMBUSTABLE MATERIAL INCLUDING STORED FUEL AWAY. CONTACT
MAY CAUSE SKIN BURNS.
IN THE EVENT OF A CHIMNEY FIRE, CLOSE AIR DAMPER COMPLETELY
CAUTION:
When building the first couple of fires, be careful to build the fire small and increase the heat slowly over a
4-5 hour period. The paint on the stove “cures” with heat and needs to be done slowly. As the paint cures
it gives off a smell and even sometimes a visible “smoky” haze into the room. Make sure the area is well
ventilated during the curing operation. The smell will disappear after a few hours of operation.
A word about draft.
Draft is the force which moves air from the appliance up through the chimney. The amount of draft in your
chimney depends on the length of the chimney, local geography, nearby obstructions and other factors. Too
much draft may cause excessive temperatures in the appliance and may damage the internal components of
the stove. Inadequate draft may cause back puffing into the room and ‘plugging’ of the chimney.
Inadequate draft will cause the appliance to leak smoke into the room through appliance and chimney
connector joints. An uncontrollable burn or excessive temperature indicates excessive draft.
Recommendations on building and maintaining a fire.
Start by opening the air control on the stove to fully open. Fully open will be pulled all the way out to the
left.
NEVER USE FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS TO START OR FRESHEN UP A FIRE. Using flammable
liquids can be explosive and cause personal injury or even death.
Using a good fire starter can make lighting a fire much easier. There are several different types of fire
starter available in “chips” “nuggets” and gels. Newspaper also makes a good fire starter if it is torn into
strips.
When building a fire, use plenty of fire starter on the bottom and use small kindling directly on top of that.
Use progressively larger pieces as you stack wood all the way to the top of the firebox. Do not build the
fire too close to the glass. Leave at least one inch between the glass and the fuel. When starting a fire,
avoid using unsplit pieces of wood unless they are small such as twigs and branches, as split wood lights
easier. Once the wood is stacked in the firebox, light the fire starter and leave the door slightly cracked
open for up to 10 minutes to aid in the startup of your stove. Once the fire is well lit, shut the door, but
leave the air control in the open position for about 20-30 minutes. After burning for about a half an hour in
the open position, you can start to regulate the heat output and burn rate by shutting the air control down.
When operating you stove, periodically check for visible emissions coming from the chimney and adjust
the burn rate and fuel load to reduce emissions. Note that burning enough wood to establish a good, thick
coal bed is essential to a successful long burn. Remember to let your stove burn open for 20-30 minutes
each time you reload it with wood. Shutting the air control prematurely can cause excessive creosote in the
chimney. This wood heater has a manufacturer-set minimum low burn rate that must not be altered.
It is against federal regulations to alter this setting or otherwise operate this wood heater in a manner
inconsistent with operating instructions in this manual. Use the following as a general guideline for
desired burn rates
Low burn
Draft handle pushed all the way in
Med-Low burn
Draft handle pulled out approximately 1/4” – 1/2”
14
Medium burn
Med-High burn
High burn
Draft handle pulled out approximately 1/2” –3/4”
Draft handle pulled out approximately 1” – 1 1/2”
Draft handle pulled out all the way
Additional instructions and information.
1. Build your fires directly on the firebrick. Using a grate will allow too much air to the coal bed and
will result in incomplete combustion of the wood. Using a grate can also leave charred pieces of
wood after the fire has gone out.
2. Use only the best grade of dry wood available. Wood should be seasoned for 1 full year prior to
being used. Split wood will season much faster and better that wood left in the rounds. Burning
green or wet wood greatly increases the chance of creosote buildup and produces significantly less
heat. The number 1 cause for creosote buildup is moisture in the wood. Store your wood in a
dry location. Any wood stored near the stove needs to maintain proper listed clearance from the
stove. Keep wood away from the loading door or ash pan if equipped.
3. Small hot fires produce less creosote than long, low smoldering fires. When you start your stove
or are re-kindling (reloading) your wood stove with a full or sizeable load of wood, open the draft
fully and burn the stove at full burn for 20-30 minutes to heat up the chimney and secondary burn
system. This ensures that when the draft control is pushed in for a lower, longer burn, the stove
will burn cleaner. You should notice more upper firebox flame activity. This is smoke from the
wood mixing with pre-heated air and burning. This is called secondary burn and results in higher
stove temperature at lower burn rates and less soot and creosote build-up. Just after starting the
fire, some smoke may occur until the chimney warms up to produce some draft. During normal
operation, adjust the draft to the position required. If properly set, it will assure longest burn times
and the most even heat cycle. Larger loads of wood will create the longest burn times. Your
Aspen “washes” the primary air down over the glass, helping to keep the glass cleaner. If your
stove glass has a smoky build-up, adding dry, split pieces of wood and burning a full-open hot fire
will begin to burn the glass clean. Doing this in the morning will not only clean the glass, but rebuilds the heat level for an efficient burn, warming the chimney system as well as the secondary
burn system.
4. IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE A CHIMNEY FIRE, CLOSE THE DOOR, SHUT DOWN
THE AIR CONTROL COMPLETELY ALLOWING THE FIRE TO GO OUT. DO NOT
FIRE THE STOVE AGAIN UNTIL THE CHIMNEY HAS BEEN CLEANED AND
INSPECTED FOR DAMAGE.
5. Break in period. In addition to the paint curing, several other things may occur as the stove breaks
in.
a. Popping and creaking: As the metal heats up and cools down, it moves. This movement
can cause a normal popping or creaking sound that will likely decrease over the first
several fires.
b. Performance: It is normal for the first few fires to seem a bit lazy. As moisture
evaporates from the brick, the fire will become more active. A layer of ash in the bottom
of the stove will also help to keep your coal bed hot and active. A good thick coal bed
and full load of wood are keys to optimum performance.
c. Smoking: As the stove heats up for the first time, a small amount of haze or smoke will
bake off of the stove, mostly due to the paint curing process. Oils on the metal will also
cause a slight haze, but will subside within 2-3 hours. Smoke detectors may go off.
6. This heater is designed to burn natural wood only. Higher efficiencies and lower emissions
generally result when burning air dried seasoned hardwoods, as compared to softwoods or to green
or freshly cut hardwoods. DO NOT BURN:
a. Garbage;
b. Lawn clippings or yard waste;
c. Materials containing rubber, including tires;
d. Materials containing plastic;
15

Construction or demolition debris;
Railroad ties or pressure-treated wood;
Manure or animal remains;
Salt water driftwood or other previously salt water saturated materials;
Unseasoned wood; or
Paper products, cardboard, plywood, or particleboard.
The prohibition against burning these materials does not prohibit the use of fire starters made
from paper, cardboard, saw dust, wax and similar substances for the purpose of starting a fire
in an affected wood heater. Burning these materials may result in release of toxic fumes or
render the heater ineffective and cause smoke.
*Densified fuel- It is ok to burn densified fuel (i.e. fuel that has been compressed from wood waste
such as sawdust into a densified form such as a log or brick). These are sometimes called energy logs,
energy bricks, or bio-bricks. These fuels must be from natural wood products or plant based only. Do not
burn logs that have glues, waxes, or other binders in them. Care needs to be given when burning these
densified fuels in order to prevent overheating the stove. If any part of your stove glows, you are over
firing. Because of their density, these fuels contain high BTU content. Do not burn too many at once at a
high burn rate. Common sense must prevail.
Optional blower operation instructions
To install the blower, follow the instructions packaged with the blower. Plug the blower into the nearest
115V grounded circuit taking care to route the power cord away from the stove body. Turn the variable
speed knob to ‘click’ onto high speed. As the knob is turned clock-wise, the blower speed decreases to
your desired speed. The blower speed should match the desired burn rate on your stove: i.e. low-burn
rate...low blower speed; high-burn rate… high blower speed and so forth. When routing the blower power
cord, take care to keep it away from hot surfaces or surfaces that could case abrasion.

Section
5 – Maintenance
Use the table below as a general maintenance schedule for your stove. See below the table for detailed
information on performing the maintenance. CAUTION: When replacing parts, do not substitute any part
or material other than factory parts or a factory authorized substitution. If you have questions about
substitute parts, contact your dealer.
Ash disposal
Every 1-2 weeks
Chimney inspection and cleaning
Every 2-3 months
Gasket replacement
Every year or as needed
Glass cleaning and replacement
As needed
Brick replacement
Replace broken bricks as needed
Clean and inspect stove
Every 2-3 months or as needed.
Replace ceramic insulation
Every year or as needed
Ash disposal – Every 1-2 weeks
1. Empty the ashes when the fire is out. Never try to empty the ashes when the stove has an active or
full fire.
2. Whenever ashes get 3 to 4 inches deep in your firebox, and when the fire has burned down and
cooled, remove excess ashes. Leave an ash bed approximately 1 inch deep on the firebox bottom
to help maintain a hot charcoal bed. Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tightfitting lid. The closed container of ashes should be placed on a noncombustible floor or on the
ground, away from all combustible materials, pending final disposal. The ashes should be retained
in the closed container until all cinders have thoroughly cooled. DO NOT PLACE THE ASHES
NEAR THE HOUSE OR IN THE GARAGE.
Chimney inspection and cleaning – Every 2-3 months
1. Refer to the chimney manufacturers installation instructions for additional information on cleaning
the chimney. We recommend having the chimney cleaned by a licensed professional chimney
sweep.
2. When wood is burned, it releases tar and other organic vapors. When these vapors combine with
moisture, creosote is formed and enters the chimney. When the stove is burning on a low setting,
the exhaust can be moving slow and the chimney can be relatively cool. This combination of slow
exhaust and a cool chimney causes creosote to stick to the walls of the chimney. When creosote
accumulates, it causes the draft to slow and the problem of creosote accumulation will compound.
If the creosote is not removed on a regular basis, a chimney fire can occur which can damage the
chimney and/or stove. Therefore, the importance of regular chimney maintenance cannot be
emphasized enough.
3. Every few months inspect the chimney for build-up of creosote or soot. Clean as necessary.
Generally, a ¼” build-up or more should be cleaned.
Gasket Replacement – Every year or as needed
1. Gaskets need to be checked at least once a year. The gaskets on your stove are designed to keep
unwanted air out of the firebox. Neglecting these gaskets can cause a decrease in burn times,
more wood consumption and possible over heating of the stove. When checking the gaskets, look
for wear areas that show fraying or cutting. Check the gasket for softness by pressing them with
your finger and give a slight tug on one area to see if the glue is still holding. Gaskets that are cut
or fraying can cause small air leaks in that spot. Gaskets that are hard will not conform to the
stove and may leak air. Gaskets that are not held in with glue could come out at an inconvenient
time. The gaskets that need to be checked are: Door gasket and glass gasket. Refer to section 8
for part numbers for the correct gasket for your stove and check with your dealer for parts
availability.
Glass cleaning and replacement – as needed
1. Never clean the glass when it is hot.
2. Clean the glass with an approved stove glass cleaner, never use an abrasive material like
sandpaper or steel wool
17
3.
Your stove is equipped with an air wash system that will self-clean the glass. If the glass is black
or covered with soot from slow burning, simply load the stove with good, dry, split wood and burn
at high burn for about 20- 30 minutes and the glass should burn clean.
4. Never build a fire against the glass.
5. When closing the door be sure that no pieces of wood are protruding from the door opening that
could touch the glass. Excessive stress like closing the door on a piece of wood will break the
glass. If the glass ever breaks in your stove, don’t panic, simply shut the air off and let the fire
burn out. Do not continue to operate a stove with broken glass. Do not leave the stove unattended
with broken glass.
6. To replace the glass it may be helpful to remove the door from the stove and place on a clean soft
work area. Remove the retaining ring screws and retaining ring, remove the glass and dispose of
properly, CAUTION: BROKEN GLASS WILL BE SHARP. Clean the door thoroughly where
the new piece of glass will install. Set the new piece of glass into the door and replace the
retaining ring and screws. Glass replacement must be 5mm thickness, approved clear ceramic
glass such as Neoceram, Robax, Pyro-ceram, or other glass approved for high temperature
applications. Do not use tempered glass or Borosilicate. See section 8 for replacement glass part
number and size. Be careful to tighten the screws evenly, uneven pressure can break the glass.
Tighten the screws just enough to hold the glass firmly, overtightening can cause uneven pressure
and can break the glass.
Brick replacement – As needed
1. Bricks should be inspected and replaced if necessary at least once a year. Cracked bricks are fine
as long as they remain in place.
Clean and inspect stove – Every 2-3 months or as needed
1. Your stove should be fully cleaned and inspected once a year. Every 2-3 months, visually check
the stove interior, especially for ash build up on top of the ceramic insulation. This is a great time
to inspect the bricks, gaskets, ceramic blanket and the rest of the stove for signs of abnormal wear.
Start by shoveling all the ashes out of the stove and emptying the ash pan. Use a shop vac to clean
the hard to reach places. Look at the inside of the stove for signs of wear, paying close attention to
the burn tubes. Discoloration of the stainless steel is normal.
2. FOR INSERT.
a. Remove the surround panel by unscrewing the two adjustable retaining screws on the
front of the top panel.
b. Remove the front two burn tubes.
c. Remove the ceramic insulation and the two baffle boards.
d. Use a 7/16 wrench or socket wrench to remove the two flue collar retaining bolts and
push the liner up out of the stove, or if there is room, reach in above the stove and pull the
liner out.
e. Pull the insert forward to inspect or clean. NOTE: it is not necessary to remove the
insert if a full height liner has been installed to the chimney top. Only the baffle tubes,
insulation and boards should be removed for cleaning. Partial liners can build up soot in
the fireplace cavity and will require insert removal for proper cleaning.
Replace ceramic insulation – Every year or as needed
1.
At least once a year, check the ceramic insulation on top of the baffle in your stove. The ceramic
insulation is designed to keep heat in the stove and increase efficiency. As long as the insulation
is in place it can be left alone. If the insulation becomes torn during cleaning, simply lay it back
together tightly in that area. If the insulation tears to multiple pieces, it should be replaced,
smaller pieces can become caught in the draft and cause a restriction.

7 – Trouble Shooting
Stove burns lazy at start up.
Stove back-puffs or smokes into the room at start up.
Stove smokes out the door when it is open.
Stove won’t shut down.
Stove won’t burn hot enough. Lazy burn.
Burn time too short.
Stove burns lazy at start up.
1. The chimney is still cool, allow more time to warm up. Burn longer with door slightly cracked.
2. Wood is not seasoned (still green). Wood should sit for about 1 year, split and loosely stacked if it
was cut green.
3. Wood is well seasoned but has a lot of surface moisture. Your wood supply must be covered.
Check your tarps or other covering to see that no rain or snow is getting to your wood. Wood
should be covered on top, but open on the sides to allow air movement to aid in drying.
4. Check the air supply to the stove. If you have installed outside air, check the ducts for blockage.
Stove back-puffs or smokes into the room at start up.
1. Chimney is cold. Cold chimneys can produce a “reverse draft” where cold air is rushing down the
chimney into the stove. Open a door or a window for about 5 minutes to equalize pressure in the
house then try restarting with small strips of newspaper. Using small strips of newspaper or an
approved fast burning fire starter and small pieces of kindling will create heat faster to help
reverse the cold air.
2. Chimney and/or the chimney cap needs to be cleaned. Your chimney should be checked and
cleaned if necessary every few months. Even a small amount of buildup can cause a draft
restriction, for example: ¼ inch of buildup on the side wall of a 6” chimney reduces the effective
area of the chimney by about 20%. Pay close attention to the chimney cap, especially if it has a
screen. Screened chimney caps can become blocked enough to restrict flow in just a few weeks.
Screened caps are required by H.U. D. code on mobile homes only. Non-mobile residential
installations may remove the screen part of the cap. Check local codes.
Stove smokes out the door when it is open.
1. The door was opened too quickly. Crack the door open just a small amount and let the stove
“breathe” a few seconds before opening all the way.
2. Chimney and/or the chimney cap needs to be cleaned. Your chimney should be checked and
cleaned if necessary every few months. Even a small amount of buildup can cause a draft
restriction, for example: ¼ inch of buildup on the side wall of a 6” chimney reduces the effective
area of the chimney by about 20%. Pay close attention to the chimney cap, especially if it has a
screen. Screened chimney caps can become blocked enough to restrict flow in just a few weeks.
3. Chimney is too short or other conditions exist such as a hillside home location, high winds, trees,
etc.
Stove won’t shut down.
1. The ash pan may not be sealing correctly (pedestal model). Check the ash pan gasket for tearing
or fraying. See the ash pan instructions in section 5. Even a small amount of undesired air can
keep the stove from shutting down.
2. Check the main door gasket and glass gasket for proper seal. See section 5 for instructions on
checking your gaskets.

Check the air supply to the stove. If you have installed outside air, check the ducts for blockage.
If you are not using outside air, be sure you have removed the cover plate on the back of the
pedestal. (pedestal models only)
Atmospheric conditions. Occasionally, barometric episodes occur that affect draft, thereby
affecting stove performance. If your stove has been working fine and performance drops
suddenly, this is most likely the cause, and will usually go away within a few days.
Your fuel load may be too small or the wood size too large for the coal bed. A small bed of coals
requires re-kindling to build up the heat, only put large chunks of wood on a very hot and active
bed of coals.
Burn time too short.
1. Your fuel load may be too small or the wood size too large for the coal bed. A small bed of coals
requires re-kindling to build up the heat, only put large chunks of wood on a very hot and active
bed of coals. If there are large chunks of charred wood left after the fire has gone out, the coal bed
was not hot enough.
2. Fuel quality. Harder, denser woods produce longer burn times. Likewise, softer woods produce
shorter burn times.
3. The ash pan may not be sealing correctly. Check the ash pan gasket for tearing or fraying. See the
ash pan instructions in section 5. Even a small amount of undesired air can keep the stove from
shutting down.
4. Check the main door gasket and glass gasket for proper seal. See section 5 for instructions on
checking your gaskets.
