Convection
RAIS stoves are convection stoves. This means that the stove’s back and side panels are
not over-heated. Convection means that there is a circulation of air, which ensures that
the heat is distributed more evenly throughout the entire room. The cold air is sucked in
at the base of the stove up through the convection channel, which runs along the stove’s
combustion chamber. The heated air pours out at the top of the stove, which ensures a
circulation of warm air throughout the room.
The stoves are equipped with a “cold” lever – RAIS special feature – which means you
could almost do away with gloves. Be aware, however, that all exterior surfaces become
hot during use - so take extreme care.

RAIS - Manual for RONDO & MINO II
Installation instructions
The following pages give instructions for the safe and proper installation of this heating appliance in the UK. These instructions cover the basic principles of installation, although detail
may need slight modification to suit particular local site conditions. In all cases the installation must comply with current UK Building Regulations, Local Authority Byelaws and other
specifications or regulations as they affect the installation of the stove. Please note that it is a
legal requirement under England and Wales Building Regulations that the installation of the
stove is either carried out under Local Authority Building Control approval or is installed by
a Competent Person registered with a Government approved Competent Persons Scheme.
HETAS Ltd operate such a Scheme and a listing of their Registered Competent Persons can
be found on their website at www.hetas.co.uk.
It should be noted that the current Building Regulations requirements are given in Approved
Document J. These requirements may also be met by adopting the relevant recommendations given in British Standards BS 8303, BS 6461 and BS 7566.
WARNING: Health and Safety Advice Notice
The installation of this heating appliance is governed by the Health and Safety at Work Act
1974. It is the responsibility of the installer to ensure that all requirements of this Act are met
during the installation works. Attention is drawn in particular to the following:
Handling:
The appliance is a heavy item and adequate facilities must be available for loading,
unloading and site handling.
Fire Cement:
Some types of fire cement are caustic and should not be allowed to come into contact
with the skin. Protective gloves should be worn when handling fire cement. In case of
contact with the skin wash immediately with plenty of water.
Asbestos:
This stove contains no asbestos. If there is a possibility of disturbing any asbestos in
the course of installation then please seek specialist guidance and use appropriate
protective equipment.
Metal Parts:
When installing or servicing this stove care should be taken to avoid the possibility of
personal injury.
Important Warning –Preparatory Work and Safety Checks:
•

This stove must not be installed into a chimney that serves any other heating appliance.
There must not be an extractor fan fitted in the same room as the stove as this can cause
the stove to emit fumes into the room.
If this appliance is installed into an existing chimney, the chimney must first be swept
and examined for soundness and suitability before the appliance is installed (see also
section headed “Chimney”).

ENGLISH
RAIS - Manual for RONDO & MINO II
Chimney
The chimney is the driving force which makes the stove function. In order for the stove to
perform satisfactorily the chimney height must be sufficient to ensure the correct draught
of 14 to 18 Pa so as to clear the products of combustion and prevent problems of smoke
emanating into the room when firing.
NOTE: A chimney height of not less than 4.5 metres measured vertically from the outlet
of the stove to the top of the chimney should be satisfactory. Alternatively the calculation
procedure given in BS 5854:1980 may be used as the basis for deciding whether a particular
chimney design will provide sufficient draught.
The outlet from the chimney should be above the roof of the building in accordance with
the provisions of Building Regulations Approved Document J.
If installation is into an existing chimney then it must be sound and have no cracks or other
faults which might allow fumes into the house. Older properties, especially, may have chimney faults or the cross section may be too large i.e. more than 230 mm x 230 mm. Remedial
action should be taken, if required, seeking expert advice, if necessary. If it is found necessary to line the chimney then a flue liner suitable for solid fuel must be used in accordance
with Building Regulations Approved Document J.
ENGLISH
RAIS - Manual for RONDO & MINO II
If it is found that there is excessive draught in the chimney then either an adjustable flue
damper or alternatively a draught stabiliser should be fitted. The adjustable flue damper
should not close off the flue entirely but should in its closed position leave a minimum
continuous opening free area of at least 20 % of the total cross sectional area of the flue or
fluepipe.
Adequate provision e.g. easily accessible soot door or doors must be provided for sweeping
the chimney and connecting fluepipe.
You should also familiarise yourself with the draught conditions for chimneys with 2 flues.
The flue outlet spigot is 150 mm in diameter.
For strong draughts, the chimney or flue should be fitted with a draught stabiliser. In which
case, it is important to ensure that there is a free flow-through area of minimum 20 cm²
when the regulating gate is shut. Otherwise, the fuel energy may not be used optimally.
If, at any time, you are unsure about the condition of the chimney, you should contact a
chimney sweep.
Remember that access to the access door should be kept clear.
Any existing chimney must be clear of obstruction and have been swept clean immediately
before installation of the stove. If the stove is fitted in place of an open fire then the chimney should be swept one month after installation to clear any soot falls which may have
occurred due to the difference in combustion between the stove and the open fire.
If there is no existing chimney then either a prefabricated block chimney in accordance
with Building Regulations Approved Document J or a twin walled insulated stainless steel
flue to BS 4543 can be used. These chimneys must be fitted in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and Building Regulations.
A single wall metal fluepipe is suitable for connecting the stove to the chimney but is not
suitable for using for the complete chimney. The chimney and connecting fluepipe must
have a minimum diameter of 150 mm and its dimension should be not less than the size
of the outlet socket of the stove which is 150 mm in diameter. Any bend in the chimney or
connecting fluepipe should not exceed 45°. 90°bends should not be used.
Combustible material should not be located where the heat dissipating through the walls
of fireplaces or flues could ignite it. Therefore when installing the stove in the presence of
combustible materials due account must be taken of the guidance on the separation of
combustible material given in Building Regulations Approved Document J and also in these
stove instructions.

For the Installer
Operating instructions
Finally before firing the stove for the first time a check should be made to ensure that the
assembly and stove installation has been satisfactory and that there are no leaks in any
seals in the appliance and appliance connections to the chimney.
Please note that HETAS Approval only covers the use of wood in the stove
and approval does not cover the use of other fuels either alone or mixed
with other fuels, nor does it cover instructions for the use of other fuels.
Ensure that the appliance and chimney flue are functioning correctly before finally handing over to the user. If necessary read the later parts of this manual for guidance on care
required when first lighting.
Inform the user that the appliance has been commissioned and ready to use and give
instruction on the safe operation of the stove.
These Instructions must be left with the user and the user should be instructed to keep
them in a safe place.
Fuel
The stove is designed and approved in accordance with EN 13240 and NS 3058 for stoking split, dried firewood. The firewood must have a water content of 15-22% and its
max. length should be the length of the combustion chamber minus 50-60 mm.
Stoking with wet firewood causes both soot, environmental pollution and bad fuel
economy. Freshly cut wood contains approx. 50-70% water and is thoroughly unsuitable
for stoking. Count min. 1 year of storage time for newly cut wood before using.
Wood with a diameter of more than 100 mm should be split. Regardless of wood size, it
should always have at least one surface area free of bark.
We do not recommend stoking with painted, laminated or impregnated wood, wood
with a synthetic surface, painted refuse wood, chipboard, plywood, domestic waste,
paper briquettes and pit coal, as this will produce malodorous smoke, which could be
poisonous.
When firing with the above-mentioned items and amounts larger than those recommended, the stove is subjected to a larger amount of heat, which results in a higher
chimney temperature and lower efficiency. This can result in the stove and chimney
becoming damaged and would void the warranty.
The calorific value of the firewood is closely connected to the moisture level of the
firewood. Moist firewood has a low heat value. The more water the wood contains, the
more energy it takes for this water to vaporise, resulting in this energy being lost.
ONLY USE RECOMMENDED FUELS
The following table shows the calorific value of different types of wood, which have
been stored for 2 years, and which have a residual moisture of 15-17%.

Drying and storage
Drying wood takes time: proper air drying takes approx. 2 years.
Here are some tips:
Store the wood sawn, split and stacked in an airy, sunny place, which is protected
against rain (the south side of the house is particularly suitable).
Store the firewood stacks at a hand’s breadth apart, as this ensures that the air flowing
through takes the moisture with it. Avoid covering the firewood stacks with plastic, as
this prevents the moisture from escaping. It is a good idea to bring the firewood into the
house 2-3 days before you need it.
ENGLISH
RAIS - Manual for RONDO & MINO II
Using the wood burning stove
Adjustment of air damper
The damper has 3 settings
Position 1
The air damper is closed, which means no air supply.
Position 2
Push the lever to the right until it stops. This position
gives full secondary air.
During normal stoking the lever is set between positions 1 and 2.
When the flames are clear and yellow, the damper is
set correctly, i.e. resulting in a slow/optimal burning.
Regulating the combustion air
All RAIS stoves are equipped with a one-handed operating lever for regulating the
damper. The stove-specific regulating mechanisms can be seen on the diagrams.
Position 3
Lift the lever upwards and push to the right. The air
damper is completely open and gives full primary and
secondary air. The position is for the lighting stage
and is not used under normal operation.
Primary air is the combustion air added to the primary combustion zone, i.e. the bed of
glowing embers. This air, which is cold, is only used in the lighting stage.
Secondary air is the air which is added in the gas combustion zone, i.e. air which contributes to the combustion of the pyrolysis gases (preheated air, which is used for the
cleaner glass system and combustion). This air is sucked through the damper under the
combustion chamber and is pre-heated through the side channels and then emitted as
hot scavenging air onto the glass. The hot air rinses the glass and keeps it soot-free.
The tertiary channel, which can be seen at the the top of the combustion chamber towards the back, serves to combust the final gas residues.
By setting the interval between position 1 and 2, the energy content in the firewood is
used optimally, as there is oxygen for combustion and for the burning of the pyrolysis
gases. When the flames are a clear yellow the damper has been set correctly. Finding the
correct position comes with time after you have used for stove for a while.
It is not recommended that you turn it down completely. A mistake commonly made is
shutting the damper too early because it feels too hot. This results in dark smoke emanating from the chimney and in the calorific value of the firewood not being used to its
fullest.

Control
If the ash is white and the walls in the combustion chamber soot-free after the stove has
been used, the air regulation was set correctly and the wood was sufficiently dry.

First usage
A careful start pays off. Start with a small fire, so that the wood burning stove can get accustomed to the high temperature. This gives the best start and any damage is avoided.
Be aware that a strange but harmless odour and smoke concoction may emanate from the
surface of the stove, the first time you fire up. This is because the paint and materials need
to harden. The odour disappears quickly, but you should check the ventilation and draught,
if possible. See also, the IMPORTANT warning notice below about persistent fumes.
During this process you must be careful not to touch the painted surfaces, and it is recommended that you regularly open and close the door to prevent the door seal from sticking.
The stove may also produce “clicking noises” during heating and cooling, caused by the
large temperature differences which the material is subjected to.
Never use any type of liquid fuel for kindling or maintaining the fire. You could be at risk of
explosion.
The stove gets very hot when in use always wear protective gloves when tending the stove.
If the stove has not been used for a while, follow the steps as if you were using it for the first
time.
IMPORTANT - Warning Note!
Properly installed, operated and maintained this appliance will not emit fumes into the
dwelling. Occasional fumes from de-ashing and re-fuelling may occur. However, persistent
fume emission is potentially dangerous and must not be tolerated. If fume emission does
persist, the following immediate actions should be taken:
(a) Open doors and windows to ventilate room.
(b) Let the fire out or eject and safely dispose of fuel from the appliance.
(c) Check for flue or chimney blockage, and clean if required.
(d) Do not attempt to relight the fire until the cause of the fume emission has been identified and corrected. If necessary seek expert advice.

Lighting and fuelling
To light the stove, use alcohol briquettes or similar,
as well as approx. 2 kg of firewood, split into kindling sticks. Set the air damper to the fully open
position.
When the flames are clear - after approx. 5-10 min.
- close the door.
Damper - see adjustment of air damper.
TIPS before firing up:
Open a door or window close to the wood burning stove.
If there is a “storm” in the stove coming from the
chimney, it is advisable to place a screwed-up
piece of newspaper between the upper baffle
plate and the chimney, set the paper on fire,
and wait until you hear a “rumbling” noise in the
chimney. This means that there definitely is a
draught in the chimney and you avoid smoke in
the room.
After approx. 10-20 min. - when you have a good
bed of glowing embers - add 2-3 pieces of wood.
Leave the door ajar until the fire has caught on
properly - close the door.
Damper - see adjustment of air damper.
After approx. 5 min. - or when the flames are clear
and stable - close the damper gradually.
It is recommendable to have a layer of ash of approx. 20 mm, as it has an insulating effect.
Light the fire and shut the
door, leaving the door ajar
approx. 10-15 mm.
Note!
During operation the
door should always
remain shut.

Cleaning and care
Interruption of operation
The wood burning stove and the chimney must be serviced by a chimney sweep once a
year. During cleaning and care, the stove must be cold.
Smoke spillage around door:
If the glass is sooty:
- Moisten a piece of paper or newspaper, dip it in the ash, and rub the sooty glass with
it.
- Now rub with a piece of paper and the glass will become clean.
- As an alternative you can use glass polish, which you can buy from you RAIS distributor.
Clean the exterior with a dry sponge.
Could be due to too low draught in the chimney <12Pa
- Check whether the flue or chimney is blocked
- check whether the extraction hood is switched on; if it is, switch it off and open a window/door in the proximity of the stove for a short while.
Soot on glass:
Could be because the firewood is too wet.
- make sure that the stove is heated properly when firing up, prior to closing the door
Cleaning soapstone:
Normal cleaning is done with a tightly wrung cloth. If necessary, the soapstone can be
cleaned with a normal diluting agent from a paint store. If there are stains which the
diluting agent cannot handle, it is possible to abrade the stone slightly.
Cleaning the combustion chamber:
Could be because the damper regulation is too low.
A stove burning too strong could be caused by:
- leak around the door seal
- chimney draught too large >22 Pa, draught control regulator should be installed.
will burn at its best with a layer of ashes of approx. 20 mm.
A stove burning too weakly could be caused by:
- too little firewood
- too little air supply for room ventilation
- unclean smoke channels
- leaky chimney
- leakage between chimney and flue
Prior to a new heating season, it should be checked that the chimney and smoke gas
connector are not blocked.
If your stove continues to malfunction, we recommend that you contact your RAIS distributor or chimney sweep.
Cleaning of the flue ways
IMPORTANT!! To ensure safe burning there must be clear yellow flames or clear embers
at all times. The firewood should not be smoldering. Therefore you should never completely cut off the air supply.
Scrape/shovel the ash out and store it in a non-flammable container until it has cooled
down. You can dispose of ash with your normal household waste.
REMEMBER!! Never remove all the ashes from the combustion chamber - the wood
WARNING!!
In case of chimney fire:
- shut off all air supply on the wood burning stove
- contact the fire department
- never attempt to put out fire with water!
- afterwards, you should ask your chimney sweeper to check the stove and chimney
Remove the baffle plate by pivoting it
up at one end and tilting it slightly at an
angle.
Carefully pull out the plate.
28
Next, remove the flue diverter by lifting it up
and pulling it forward.
Carefully lift out the flue diverter.
Remove dust and dirt and assemble in
reverse order.
