Performance
Figure 4
This appliance relies upon natural draft to operate. External forces, such as wind,
barometric pressure, topography, or factors of the home (negative pressure from exhaust
fans, chimneys, air infiltration, etc.), may adversely affect draft. Travis Industries can not be
responsible for external forces leading to less than optimal performance.
•
Standard residential installations may use single-wall connector (Mobile-Homes may not)
•
Standard residential installations with reduced clearance connector may use the clearance
determined by the manufacturer of the connector for the connector to wall clearance or the clearance
listed in this manual. Offsets must be used to maintain the stove to wall clearance. Mobile homes
must use the clearances listed in this manual under "Additional Requirements for Mobile Home

Drafting Performance
This appliance relies upon natural draft to operate. External forces, such as wind, barometric pressure,
topography, or factors of the home (negative pressure from exhaust fans, chimneys, air infiltration, etc.),
may adversely affect draft. Travis Industries can not be responsible for external forces leading to less
than optimal performance.
Leveling Bolt Installation
Two leveling bolts are included to level the insert if the fireplace has a stepped-up hearth. To install, raise
the rear of the insert up and insert the leveling bolts into the holes in the rear corners of the insert. Adjust
the bolts until they extend the same height as the hearth steps up. After the insert is installed, fine-tune
the leveling bolts to level the insert (see Figure 18).
This distance is the
hearth step-up. The
leveling bolts should
stick out this far from the
base of the insert.

Block-Off Plate Installation
Whenever this appliance is installed with a direct connection a block-off plate, or other non-combustible
seal-off device (e.g. damper adapter), will need to be installed. This device is used to seal the chimney,
insuring no smoke enters the home and providing the chimney system with a seal to promote draft. The
directions below detail the steps for construction and installation of a block-off plate.
•
Determine a location for the block-off plate at the top of the firebox below the damper area (make it
high enough to allow installation of the connection pipe). The location should be level and in an area
where it can be mounted easily. Measure the width at the rear ("A") and front ("B") of the firebox at
the height where the block-off plate will be installed (see Figure 19). Then measure the depth of the
location where the block-off plate will be installed ("C").
•
Make a cardboard template of the measurements, but add a 2" flange to each side. This flange will
be used to mount the block-off plate to the inside of the firebox. Bend the flanges downwards on the
template and place it inside the fireplace. If the template fits correctly in its planned location, go to the
next step. If it does not, make a new template with the appropriate corrections until it fits correctly.
•
With the template in place, mark the location of the flue (see “Dimensions” on page 6). This location
approximates the center of the flue when the insert is in place (a slight offset may occur based upon
insert and block-off plate placement). Remove the template and cut a 6 1/4" diameter hole centered
on this mark.
•
Make the block-off plate of 24 gage or thicker steel to match the template. Drill two holes in each
flange for mounting the plate.
•
Mount the block-off plate using masonry screws.
•
Insulate the block-off plate using high-temperature fiberglass insulation (Kaowool® or equivalent) and
furnace cement (allow the cement to dry for at least 24 hours before burning).
•
After placing the appliance and installing the pipe through the block-off plate, use high-temperature
fiberglass insulation and furnace cement to seal any cracks between the pipe and block-off plate.

Safety Notice
If this appliance is not properly installed, a house fire may result. For your safety, follow the installation
directions. Contact local building or fire officials about restrictions and installation inspection
requirements in your area.
Read and follow all of the warnings on pages 4 and 5 of this manual.
Before Your First Fire
Verify the Installation
Before starting the stove, verify that the stove is properly installed and all of the requirements in this
manual have been followed.
Keep all flammable materials 36" away from the front of the stove (drapes, furniture, clothing, etc.).
Curing the Paint
2 to 4 hours
This heater uses a heat-activated paint that will emit some fumes while
starting the first fire. Open doors and windows to the room to vent these
fumes. This typically lasts two to four hours. You may also notice oil burning
off of the interior of the heater. This rust-stopping agent will soon dissipate.
Door Gasket - The door gasket might adhere to the paint on the front of the
heater. Leave the door slightly ajar for the first fire and be careful when
opening the door after the first fire.
AAA
AA
A
AAA
Over-Firing the Stove
This stove was designed to operate at a high temperature. But due to differences in vent configuration,
fuel, and draft, this appliance can be operated at an excessive temperature. If the stove top or other area
starts to glow red, you are over-firing the stove. Shut the air control down to low and allow the stove to
cool before proceeding.
Over-firing may lead to damage of plated surfaces. If you are uncertain of over-firing conditions, we
suggest placing a stove thermometer (e.g. Rutland® Model 710) directly over the door on the stove top temperatures exceeding 800° are generally considered over-firing and will void the warranty.
Opening the Door
Turn the handle clockwise to un-latch.
Swing the door open.
The door becomes hot during use. Use a glove to open the door if the handle is hot.
To prevent smoke from entering the room, open the bypass before opening the door (see following page
for directions). You can also open the door a small amount and let air enter the firebox.

Bypass Operation
The bypass controls the flow of smoke inside the heater. When pulled out, smoke goes directly up the
flue, creating more draft. When pushed in, the smoke goes around the baffle, utilizing the secondary
combustion and making the heater more efficient.
•
When starting or re-loading, pull the bypass out.
•
During normal operation, push the bypass in.

Starting a Fire
Since the dawn of time man has debated the best way to start a fire. Some use the boy-scout "tee-pee",
some prefer the "tic-tac-toe" stack. Either way, review the hints and warnings below to ensure proper fire
starting.
•
Make sure the air control is pushed in. If additional air is needed, open the doors 1/4" during the first
five minutes of start-up. The bypass may be opened if the heater needs more draft.
Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid, or similar liquids to start
or "freshen up" a fire in this stove. Keep all such liquids well away from the stove while it is in use.
If using a firestarter, use only products specifically designed for stoves - follow the manufacturer's
instructions carefully.
If the smoke does not pass up the chimney, ball up one sheet of newspaper, place it in the center of the
firebox and light it. This should start the chimney drafting (this eliminates "cold air blockage").
Use plenty of kindling to ensure the stove reaches a proper temperature. Once the kindling is burning
rapidly, place a few larger pieces of wood onto the fire.

The air control may take several minutes to influence the burn rate. When making adjustments, you
may wish to let the stove burn for 10 minutes to gauge performance.
Ash Removal
ASHES
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 or on the ground, away from 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.

Re-Loading the Stove
Follow the directions below to minimize smoke spillage while re-loading the stove.
1. Open the air control all the way (push it in). Open the bypass (pull it out).
2. Open the door slightly. Let the airflow inside the firebox to stabilize before opening the door fully.
3. Load wood onto the fire.
Overnight Burn
This stove is large enough to accommodate burn times up to eight hours. Follow the steps below to
achieve an overnight burn.
1. Move the air control to high burn and let the stove become hot (burn for approximately 15 minutes).
2. Load as much wood as possible. Use large pieces if possible.
3. Let the stove burn on high for 15 minutes to keep the stove hot, then turn the air control to low.
4. In the morning the stove should still be hot, with embers in the coal bed. Stir the coals and load small
pieces of wood to re-ignite the fire, if desired.
Differences if chimney height and draft may lower overall burn times.
Normal Operating Sounds
Creaks and Clicks:
The 3/16" and 1/4" steel may creak or click when the
stove heats up and cools down - this is normal.
Blower Sounds:
The blower will make a slight "humm" as it
pushes air through the stove.
Hint:
Make sure the leveling bolts on legs are extended preventing the hearth from amplifying any vibrations.

Hints for Burning
•
Get the appliance hot before adjusting to low burn
•
Use smaller pieces of wood during start-up and high burns to increase temperature
•
Use larger pieces of wood for overnight or sustained burns
•
Stack the wood tightly together to establish a longer burn
•
Leave a bed of ashes (1/2" deep) to allow for longer burns
•
Be considerate of neighbors & the environment: burn dry wood only
•
Burn small, intense fires instead of large, slow burning fires when possible
•
Learn your appliance's operating characteristics to obtain optimum performance
Selecting Wood
•
Dry Wood is Key
•
Dry wood burns hot, emits less
smoke and creates less creosote.
•
Testing Wood Moisture
•
Split wood stored in a dry area will
be fully dry within a year. This
insures dry wood. If purchasing
wood for immediate use, test the
wood with a moisture meter. Some
experienced wood burners can
measure wood moisture by
knocking pieces together and
listening for a clear "knock" and not
a "thud".

and Creostoe
Why Dry Wood is Key
Wet wood, when burned, must release water stored within the wood. This cools the fire, creates
creosote, and hampers a complete burn. Ask any experienced wood burner and he or she will agree: dry
wood is crucial to good performance.
Wood Cutting and Storage
Cut wood to length and
chop into quarters.
Store the wood off the ground in a
covered area. Allow for airflow
around the wood to dry the wood.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause
Smoke Enters Room During
Start-Up
•
Open the bypass (pg. 26).
•
Open the air control (pg. 28).
•
Cold Air Blockage - burn a piece of newspaper to
establish a draft.
•
If the flame is not getting enough air, a small crack in
the door is all that is needed.
•
Open the bypass (pg. 26).
•
Open the air control (pg. 28).
•
Not enough starter paper - use additional newspaper if
necessary.
•
If the flame is not getting enough air, a small crack in
the door is all that is needed.
•
Open the bypass (pg. 26) before opening the door.
•
Let the air stabilize before fully opening the door. Then
open the door approximately 1 inch. Let air go into the
firebox for a few seconds. Once the smoke appears to
be flowing up the chimney consistently, open the door.
•
Insufficient Draft - Chimney height and outside
conditions can negatively affect draft. In these cases a
small amount of smoke may enter the home. Adding
more pipe or a draft-inducing cap may help.

Insufficient Draft - Chimney height and outside
conditions can negatively affect draft. In these cases
the fire may burn slowly. Adding more pipe or a draftinducing cap may help.

Stove is Not Up to Temperature - This is normal. The
blower will come on when the stove is hot - usually 15
to 30 minutes.
•
Electricity is Cut to the Blower - Check the household
breaker or fuse to make sure it is operable.
•
Depending upon wood, draft, and other factors, the
burn time may be shorter then stated. Make sure the
doors are sealing and not allowing air into the firebox See the section "Door and Glass Inspection" on page
33 for details.
•
Check the ash bed for coals. Often, coals are still
glowing under a slight bed of flyash. By raking these
into a pile you can re-start your stove quickly.

Maintaining Your Appliance
Failure to properly maintain and inspect your appliance may reduce the performance and life of the
appliance, void your warranty, and create a fire hazard.
Daily Maintenance (while stove is in use)
Remove Ash (if necessary)
•
Ash removal is not required once it builds up. 1/2" to 1" of ash may be desirable because it slows the
burn rate. Generally, remove ash once it has built up over 1". Follow the directions below to remove
ash.
•
Let the stove cool completely (at least two hours after the last coal has extinguished).
•
Place a cloth or cardboard protector over the hearth to catch ash and protect against
scratching.
•
Open the doors and scoop the ash into a metal container with a tight fitting 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.
ASHES
Improperly disposed ashes lead to fires. Hot ashes placed in cardboard boxes, dumped in back yards,
or stored in garages, are recipes for disaster.
Wood-burning stoves are inherently dirty. During cleaning have a vacuum ready to catch spilled ash
(make sure ash is entirely extinguished).
There are vacuum cleaners specifically made to remove ash (even if the ash is warm). Contact your
dealer for details.
Clean the Glass (if necessary)
This appliance has an airwash to keep the glass clean. However, burning un-seasoned wood or burning
on lower burn rates leads to dirtier glass (especially on the sides). Clean the glass by following the
directions below.
Allow the stove to fully cool. Apply glass
cleaner or soapy water to the inside of
the glass. Wipe with newspaper or a
paper towel.
AA
AA
For Stubborn Creosote:
Dip newspaper or a paper towel in cool
ashes and wipe it on the glass. The ash
acts as a light abrasive.
AAAA
The glass will develop a very slight haze over time. This is normal and will not affect viewing of the fire.

Monthly Maintenance (while appliance is in use)
Make sure the appliance has fully cooled prior to conducting service.
Door and Glass Inspection
The door must form an air-tight seal to the firebox for the stove to work correctly. Inspect the door gasket
to make sure it forms an air-tight seal to the firebox.
The door can be lifted off the hinges if extensive repairs are conducted.
AA

High-Temperature anti-sieze
may be used on the door
hinges to eliminate squeaks.

If the glass is damaged, replace
it - see “Replacement Parts” for
details.
Use wood stove gasket
cement to re-adhere
loose gasket.
Severely frayed or thread-bare
gasket should be replaced.
The door latch should pull the door against the face of the stove (but not so tight as to not allow full
handle rotation). If the latch requires adjustment, follow the directions below.

Creosote - Formation and Need for Removal
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors, which combine with expelled
moisture to form creosote. The creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of a slowburning fire. As a result, creosote residue accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited, this creosote
makes an extremely hot fire. The chimney and chimney connector should be inspected at least once
every two months during the heating season to determine if a creosote buildup has occurred. If creosote
has accumulated, it should be removed to reduce the risk of a chimney fire.
If you are not certain of creosote inspection, contact your dealer or local chimney sweep for a full
inspection. Excess creosote buildup may cause a chimney fire, that may result in property damage,
injury, or death.

Maintaining Your Appliance
Yearly Maintenance
Make sure the appliance has fully cooled prior to conducting service.
Touch Up Paint
Included with the owner's pack of this appliance is a can of Stove-Brite®
paint. To touch up nicks or dulled paint, apply the paint while the appliance is
cool. Sand rusted or damaged areas before preparation (use 120 grit
sandpaper). Clean and dry the area to prepare the surface. Wait at least one
hour before starting the appliance. The touched up area will appear darker
than the surrounding paint until it cures from heat. Curing will give off some
fumes while curing – open windows to ventilate.
Touch-Up
Paint
Cleaning the Air Duct and Blower (if applicable)
Use a vacuum to clean the air ducts (channels). This prevents dust from burning and creating odors.
The optional blower should be vacuumed every year to remove any buildup of dust, lint, etc.
BOTTOM OF
STOVE
Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any
buildup on the screens of the blower.
Firebrick and Baffle Inspection
Use the illustration on page 36 as a reference for checking the following items. Make sure the appliance
is cool before proceeding.
Baffle Firebricks - check the bricks along the ceiling of the firebox to make sure they are intact and have
no gaps between them. Slide the bricks to eliminate any gaps.
Baffle Supports - make sure the front and back baffle supports in are place and not degraded. Slight
scaling or rusting of the metal is normal.
Secondary Air Tubes - Check the two air tubes and collars to make sure they are intact and not severely
deteriorated. Slight scaling or rusting of the metal is normal. Make sure the push pins hold the air tubes
in place.
Floor and Wall Firebricks - replace any severely damaged firebrick along the side or floor of the firebox.

Replacing the Glass
The glass must not contact the door shell or glass clips directly. The glass gasket and glass clip
gaskets insulate the glass to prevent cracking. Do not over-tighten the glass clips.
Remove the door and place it on a suitable work surface. Remove the door gasket. Remove the glass
clips (the glass clip gaskets adhere to the glass clips). Remove the glass. Place the glass gasket in the
inner channel of the door shell then place the glass on top of the gasket. Replace the clips to secure.
Replacing the Door Gasket
The door gasket inserts into the outer groove of the door shell. Stove gasket cement holds it in place.
Before installing, remove any residual cement. Lay the gasket in place (start at the lower left corner) and
cut off any excess gasket (do not stretch the gasket. The cement fully cures with heat from the stove.
You may need to open and close the door repeatedly to get the gasket to seat fully.
Replacing the Door Handle
See the illustration above for a component list (see pg. 33 for details on adjusting the door).

side panels so they are:
1) aligned with the top of
the insert; 2) both the
same distance back from
the front of the insert; 3)
perpendicular to the floor
(use the top panel, if
necessary, to judge
alignment). Tighten the
screws that hold the side
