CAUTION
After reading these instructions, if you have any doubt
about your ability to complete your installation in a
professional like manner you should obtain the services
of an installer versed in all aspects as to the correct
and safe installation. Do not use temporary makeshift
compromises during installation.
Before Installation of Your Appliance
1. Check with the building inspector’s office for compliance with local codes; a permit may be required.
2. This appliance requires a masonry or prefabricated
chimney listed to ULC S629 (Canada) and UL103HT
(U.S.). Sized correctly.
3. A 6” (152 mm) diameter flue is required for proper
performance.
4. Always connect this unit to a chimney and NEVER
vent to another room or inside a building.
5. DO NOT connect this unit to any duct work to which
another appliance is connected such as a furnace.
6. DO NOT connect this unit to a chimney flue serving
another appliance.
7. The connector pipe and chimney should be inspected periodically and cleaned if necessary.
8. Remember the clearance distances when you place
furniture or other objects within the area. DO NOT
store wood, flammable liquids or other combustible
materials too close to the unit.
Refer to certification label on back of your unit
for required clearances.
9. Contact your local municipal or provincial fire authority for information on how to handle a chimney fire.
Have a clearly understood plan to handle a chimney
fire. In the event of a chimney fire, turn air control
to closed position and CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.
10.DO NOT tamper with combustion air control beyond
normal adjustment.
11.DO NOT install these units in a mobile home or
trailer. These units are NOT mobile home approved.
Operation Precautions
Why the correct flue size is important - 6”
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. An uncontrolled burn or a glowing red part
or chimney connector indicates excessive draft. Inadequate draft may cause back puffing into the room and
“plugging” of the chimney and/or cause the appliance to
leak smoke into the room through appliance and chimney connector joints.
Today’s solid fuel appliances are much more efficient
than in the past. The units are designed to give you
controlled combustion, as well as maximum heat transfer, using less fuel to do so.
The design of your new appliance is such that the
exhaust “smoke” is now at lower temperatures than in
the past, therefore requiring proper chimney size to give
adequate draft. If your chimney is too large, the heating
appliance will have a difficult time to raise the “chimney flue” temperature to give adequate draft, therefore
causing a smoke back up, poor burn or both.
Should you experience such a problem call in a local chimney expert.
With the door closed, the rate of burning is regulated by
the amount of air allowed to enter the unit through the
air control. With experience you will be able to set the
control for heat and burning time desired.
Once the required chimney draft is obtained, operate
only with doors closed and open doors slowly when
re-fueling. (This will reduce or eliminate smoke from
entering the room).
Attempts to achieve higher output rates that exceed
heater design specifications can result in permanent
damage to the heater. The recommended wood load is
level with the top of the firebricks.
Overloading may prevent sufficient air entering the
heater to properly fuel the fire.
Operate this heater only with the door closed.
DO NOT BURN GARBAGE OR FLAMMABLE FLUIDS.
DO NOT USE CHEMICALS OR FLUIDS TO START
THE FIRE.
ALWAYS PROVIDE A SOURCE OF FRESH AIR
INTO THE ROOM WHERE THE UNIT IS INSTALLED.
FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN AIR STARVATION OF OTHER FUEL BURNING APPLIANCES
AND THE POSSIBLE DEVELOPMENT OF HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS.
THIS HEATER IS EXTREMELY HOT WHILE IN OPERATION.
SERIOUS BURNS CAN RESULT FROM CONTACT.
KEEP CHILDREN, CLOTHING AND FURNITURE
AWAY.
Optional Blower: Model S31105
120 V, 60 Hz, 0.75 Amps, 2900 rpm
DANGER: Risk of Electric Shock.
Disconnect power before servicing unit.
IMPORTANT: For optimum heater performance at
“low” burn rate, operate the fan at low speed.

1. A clearance of 18” (457 mm) between the stovepipe
and combustible materials may be required. Check
with authorities having jurisdiction in your area.
2. All pipe sections must be connected with the male
end (crimped end) toward the stove.
3. Fasten the stove pipe to the flue collar by the use of
three (3) sheet metal screws. Do the same at each
additional joint to make the entire installation rigid.
4. Maintain the required diameter flue for the entire
installation.
5. If you are connecting the stove to an old masonry
flue, be sure to have it inspected for cracks and general condition.
6. It is recommended that no more than two (2) 90°
bends be used in the stove pipe installation. More
than two (2) 90° bends may decrease the amount of
draw and possibly cause smoke spillage.
7. A damper is not required in this installation. Remove
damper plate in the chimney or secure in the OPEN
position.
8. Single wall flue pipe assemblies must not exceed 10
feet (3 m) in horizontal run.
1. This appliance requires a masonry or pre-manufactured chimney listed to ULC S629 (Canada) and UL
103HT (US) sized correctly.
2. If a masonry chimney is used, it is advisable to have
your chimney inspected for cracks and check the
general condition before you install your unit. Relining may be required to reduce the flue diameter to
the appropriate functional size.
3. To help ensure a good draft, the top of the chimney
should be at least 3 feet (914 mm) above the point
of penetration through the roof, and be at least 2 feet
(610 mm) higher than any point of the roof within 10
feet (3 m).
4. The chimney connector shall not pass through an
attic, roof space, closet, concealed space, floor, ceiling, wall or any partition of combustible construction.
5. The minimum overall height of your chimney should
be 15 feet (5 m) from the floor. (Fig. 6)

Operation
Do not use a grate or elevate fire. Build wood fire
directly on hearth. When the stove is used for the first
time the solvents in the paint will smoke off.
Wood
This heater is designed to burn natural wood only. Higher efficiency and lower emissions generally result when
burning air dried seasoned hardwood, as compared to
softwood or to green or freshly cut hardwood.
Only use dry seasoned wood. Green wood, besides
burning at only 60 percent of the fuel value of dry wood,
deposits creosote on the inside of your stove and along
the chimney. This can cause an extreme danger of
chimney fire. To be called “seasoned”, wood must be
dried for a year. Regardless of whether the wood is
green or seasoned, it should be stored in a well-sheltered, ventilated area to allow proper drying during the
year to come. Wood should be stored beyond recommended clearance from combustibles.

Instructions for First Burn - Curing the Stove Paint
Your stove has been painted with the highest quality
stove paint and has special break-in procedures. The
heat generated by the normal operation of the stove,
will serve to harden the paint.
Ventilate the house during the first three times the stove
is used. The paint on the stove will give off smoke,
carbon dioxide and an odor. Without adequate ventilation, concentrations of smoke could irritate you or cause
damage to person and/or property. Open doors and
windows and use a fan if necessary. After the initial
burns the paint will be cured and there should be no
more smoke.
Each of the initial burns should be conducted as follows:
1. The first and second burns should be approximately
250° F (120° C) for approximately 20 minutes.
2. The third burn should be between 500° F (260 to
370° C) for at least 45 minutes. The important fact is
the paint should be cured slowly. Avoid hot fires during the curing process.
During the curing process the paint will be gummy.
Once cured the paint will remain hard.
It is normal to see flat spots on painted surfaces of the
stove. The flat spots on the paint surface indicate the
hotter surfaces of the stove, and is caused by the heat
radiating through the paint. It is also expected that shiny
spots caused by friction from the packaging materials,
will disappear during the curing of the stove.
SO:
1. Remember to ventilate well.
2. Allow the stove to cure before burning for long periods at high temperatures.
3. Flat spots on the painted surfaces are normal.
4. Shiny spots on the paint surface before burning is
normal.
5. Call your dealer if you have any questions.
Building a Fire
Never use gasoline, gasoline-type latern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid or similar liquids to
start or ‘freshen up’ a fire in this heater. Keep all
such liquids well away from the heater while it is
in use.
1. Open inlet air control fully.
2. Place a small amount of crumpled paper in the
stove.
3. Cover the paper with a generous amount of kindling
in a teepee fashion and a few small pieces of wood.
30005128
Windsor High Efficiency Wood Stove
4. Ignite the paper and close door. If fire dies down
substantially, open door slightly.
5. Add larger pieces of wood as the fire progresses being careful not to overload. Do not fill firebox beyond
firebrick area. An ideal coal bed of 1” to 2” should be
established to achieve optimum performance.
6. This unit is designed to function most effectively
when air is allowed to circulate to all areas of the
firebox. An ideal means of achieving this is to rake a
slight (1” to 2” wide) trough in the center of the coal
bed from front to back prior to loading the fuel.
7. Once fuel has been loaded, close the door and open
air inlet control fully until fire is well established (approx. 10 minutes) being careful not to overfire.
8. Readjust air inlet control to desired burn rate. If
excessive smoke fills firebox, open air inlet control
slightly until flames resume and wood is sufficiently
ignited. While a basic rule of thumb is “closed-low”,
“1/2 way - medium” and “fully open-high”, refer to the
Inlet Air Control Settings chart.
9. When refueling, adjust air control to the fully open
position. When fire brightens, slowly and carefully
open the door. This procedure will prevent gases
from igniting causing smoke and flame spillage.
10.Add fuel being careful not to overload.
4. Never attempt to clean the glass while unit is hot. If
the deposit is not very heavy, normal glass cleaners are adequate with a plain, nonabrasive scouring
pad. Heavier deposits may be removed with the use
of a readily available oven cleaner.
5. Never put substances which can ignite explosively
in the unit since even small explosions in confined
areas can blow out the glass.
6. This unit has an airwash system, designed to reduce
deposits on glass.
Glass Care
1. Ensure appliance is not in operation and has thoroughly cooled.
2. Remove old door gasket and clean channel.
3. Using an approved high temperature gasket cement,
apply a thin coat in bottom of channel.
4. Starting at hinge side of door, work into around door
unit, and butt and trim to length.
5. Close door and allow three to four hours for cement
to set before restarting appliance.
Replace glass only with high temperature Robax
Pyroceram of the proper size and thickness.
Gasket Replacement
After extensive use, the sealing material which provides
glass and door seal may need to be replaced if it fails
to sustain its resilience. Inspect glass and door seal periodically to ensure for proper seal. If gaskets become
frayed or worn, replace immediately.
Contact your dealer for approved replacement parts.
The following steps should be followed for glass gasket

Windsor High Efficiency Wood Stove
Creosote
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other
organic vapors. These combine with moisture to form
creosote. Creosote vapors condense in the relatively
cool chimney flue of a slow-burning fire. As a result,
creosote residue accumulates on the flue lining. When
ignited, this creosote makes an extremely hot fire.
The chimney should be inspected regularly during the
heating season to determine if a creosote build-up has
accumulated. If this is the case, the creosote should be
removed to reduce the risk of chimney fire.
Ways to Prevent and Keep Unit Free of Creosote
1. Burn with air control open for several minutes at
numerous intervals throughout the day during the
heating season, being careful not to over-fire unit.
This removes the slight film of creosote accumulated
during low burn periods.
2. Burn stove with draft control wide open for several
minutes every time you apply fresh wood. This allows wood to achieve the charcoal stage faster and
burns wood vapors which might otherwise be deposited within the system.
3. Burn only seasoned wood. Avoid burning wet or
green wood. Seasoned wood has been dried for at
least one year.
4. A small hot fire is preferable to a large smouldering
one that can deposit creosote within the system.
5. Establish a routine for the fuel, wood burner and
firing technique. Check daily for creosote build-up
until experience shows how often you need to clean
to be safe. Be aware that the hotter the fire, the less
creosote is deposited. Weekly cleaning may be necessary in mild weather even though monthly cleaning may be enough in the coldest months. Contact
your local municipal authority for information on how
to handle a chimney fire. Have a clearly understood
plan to handle a chimney fire.
WARNING: Things to remember in case of chimney fire: 1. Close draft control. 2. Call the fire department.
Ash Disposal
This unit features a convenient ash lip for easy removal
of ash. During constant use, ashes should be removed
every few days, or whenever ashes get to three to four
inches deep in the firebox. Remove ashes only when
the fire has died down and the ashes have cooled.
Even then, expect to find a few hot embers.
Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a
tight-fitting lid. The closed container of ashes should
be placed on a noncombustible floor, well away from
30005128
all combustible materials, pending final disposal. If
the ashes are disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise
locally dispersed, they should be retained in the closed
container until all cinders have thoroughly cooled. Other
waste should not be placed in the ash can.
IMPORTANT
Helpful Hints
1. What is the correct way to start a fire?
a. You will need small pieces of dry wood (kindling)
and paper. Use only newspaper or paper that has
not been coated or had unknown materials glued
or applied to it. Never use coated (typically advertising flyers) or colored paper.
b. Open the door of the wood stove.
c. Crumple several pieces of paper and place them
in the center of the firebox and directly on to the
firebricks of the wood stove. Never use a grate to
elevate the fire.
d. Place small pieces of dry wood kindling) over the
paper in a teepee manner. This allows for good
air circulation, which is critical for good combustion.
e. Light the crumpled paper in 2 or 3 locations:
NOTE: It is important to heat the air in the stovepipe for draft to start.
f. Fully open the air control of the wood stove and
close the door until it is slightly open, allowing
for much needed air to be introduced into the fire
box. Never leave the door fully open as sparks
from the kindling may occur causing injury or
property damage. As the fire begins to burn the
kindling, some additional kindling may be needed
to sustain the fire. DO NOT add more paper after
the fire has started.
g. Once the kindling has started to burn, add some
of the smaller pieces of seasoned (dry) firewood.
NOTE: Adding large pieces at the early stages
will only serve to smother the fire. Continue
adding small pieces of seasoned (dry) firewood,
keeping the door slightly open until each piece
starts to ignite. Remember to always open the
door slowly when placing wood into the fire.
h. Once the wood has started to ignite and the
smoke has reduced, close the wood stove door
fully. The reduction of smoke is a good indication
that the draft in the chimney has started and good
combustion is now possible. Larger pieces of
seasoned (dry) firewood can now be added when
there is sufficient space in the firebox. Adjust the
air control setting to desired setting.
i. NOTE: The lower the air control setting the longer
the burn time of your firewood.

2. What type of wood is best to use as firewood?
Dry seasoned hardwood should be used. Avoid
green unseasoned wood. Green wood, besides
burning at only 60 percent of the fuel value of dry
seasoned wood, will deposit creosote on the inside
of your stove and along the inside of your chimney.
3. What does dry seasoned wood mean, and what
is considered hardwood?
Wood that has been dried for a period of one year
in a well-ventilated and sheltered area would be
considered dry seasoned wood. Hardwoods are
generally from slow growth trees (Example: Oak and
fir) Softwoods are generally from fast growth trees.
(Example: Pine and spruce).
4. Will following the above listed steps for starting
a fire result in perfect results all the time?
The quick answer is most of the time. There are
many variables that may affect your success rate
when starting a fire. Most of those variables and how
to deal with them will be learned through experience.
Your ability to start a good fire will significantly increase with time and patience. Some of the reasons
for poor stove performance will be covered next.
5. Why can’t I get the fire lit?
Damp or wet wood and poor draft are the main reasons for poor results in starting a fire. Always use dry
seasoned wood for your fire. Even wood dried for
two years will be difficult to ignite, if it has become
wet.
6. Why is there always a large quantity of thick
black smoke present in the firebox?
A large quantity of thick black smoke in the firebox,
is a good indication that the draft is poor.
7.Is it normal for soot to cover the glass at the
beginning of a fire?
Your stove has been built with an air wash system
that will help keep the glass clear when the firebox
has reached a good operating temperature and has
a good draft. Cold firebox temperature and poor draft
cause sooting of the glass. Once the firebox temperature and the draft increases, the soot will burn off.
8. What is draft?
Draft is the ability of the chimney to exhaust draw
by-products produced during the normal combustion
process.
9. What can cause a poor draft?
The most common factors for poor draft are:
a. Atmospheric pressure and air supply
b. Environmental conditions
c. Cold chimney temperature
d. Poor chimney installation and maintenance
a. Atmospheric Pressure and Air Supply
Atmospheric pressure affecting the draft from a
10
chimney can be either outside the home, inside
the home or both. Outside the home, a high-pressure day (clear and cool) generally creates a better draft in the chimney than a low-pressure day
(overcast and damp). Inside the home, normal
household appliances, such as clothes dryers
and forced air furnaces compete for air resulting
in inadequate amounts of air available to fuel a
fire and create a condition known as negative
pressure. Under extreme conditions of negative pressure the combustion by-products can
be drawn from the chimney and into the house.
This condition is commonly referred to as down
drafting. There are several factors that impact the
amount of air available in the home. Increased
amounts of insulation vinyl windows, extra caulking in various places and door seals can all keep
heat in but may also make a home too airtight.
If you are in doubt about whether or not there is
sufficient air in your home for your stove, curtail
using those appliances known to consume the
air where possible, or open a window or door to
allow air to enter the home.
b. Environmental Conditions
High trees, low lying house location such as in
a valley, tall buildings or structures surrounding
your house and windy conditions can cause poor
draft or down drafting.
c. Cold Chimney Temperature
Avoid cold chimney temperatures by burning a
hot fire for the first fifteen to forty minutes, being
careful not to over fire. If any part of the chimney
or parts of the stove start to glow, you are over firing the stove. Where possible, install a temperature gauge on the chimney so temperature drops
can be seen.
d. Chimney Installation and Maintenance
Avoid using too many elbows or long horizontal
runs. If in doubt, contact a chimney expert and/or
chimney manufacturer for help. Clean chimney,
rain caps and especially spark arrester regularly,
to prevent creosote build up, which will significantly reduce chimney draw and may cause a
chimney fire.
10.Should I close or open the air control fully when
shutting down the stove?
When shutting down the stove, fully open the air
control. This allows the chimney temperatures to
remain as high as possible for as long as possible.
Cold chimney temperatures create creosote.

not supersede any local, provincial or state requirements. Check with officials or authorities having jurisdiction in your area.
