In the U.S., the National Fire Protection Association’s Code,
NFPA 211, Standards for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents and
Solid Fuel Burning Appliances, or similar regulations, may
apply to the installation of a solid fuel burning appliance
in your area.
In Canada, the guideline is established by the CSA
Standard, CAN/CSA-B365-M93, Installation Code for SolidFuel-Burning Appliances and Equipment.
Always consult your local building inspector or authority
having jurisdiction to determine what regulations apply
in your area.

• Avoid creating a low pressure condition in the room
where the stove is operating. Be aware that operation of an exhaust fan or clothes dryer can create a
low pressure area and consequently promote flow
reversal through the stove and chimney system. In
some cases, the optional Outside Air Kit #154335 can
be used to alleviate this condition. The chimney and
building, however, always work together as a system
- provision of outside air, directly or indirectly to an
atmospherically vented appliance will not guarantee
proper chimney performance. Consult your local Jøtul
authorized dealer regarding specific installation/performance issues.
• Jøtul strongly recommends that this stove be installed by a professional solid fuel technician, or that
you consult one if you do the work yourself. Also,
consult your insurance company regarding any other
specific requirements.

NOTE: Your local officials have final authority in
Installing the Venting
The Jøtul F 3 can be vented from the top, the rear or from
either the right or left side. Follow the instructions below
for the desired venting location.
Top-exit Venting
Matte Black and Blue Black Enamel Stoves: If top exit venting
is desired, use a 3mm allen wrench to remove the two set
screws that secure the top casting to the sides of the stove
and lift off the top casting. Lay the top casting upside-down
on a flat surface. Remove the 10mm bolt from the cross bar
and remove the smoke outlet cover. See figure 1.
Re-secure the top plate to the stove body by tightening the
set screws previously loosened.
NOTE: Ivory and Majolica stoves are built for top-exit flue
connection - there is no top outlet cover plate.
Rear-exit Venting
Matte Black and Blue Black Enamel Stoves: If rear exit
venting is desired, it will be necessary to “knock-out” the
vent hole from the rear casting. Follow the procedure below.
Brown Majolica enamel stoves are built with the rear outlet
open, however the cover plate must be removed and reinstalled in the Top Plate.
Remove the top casting of the stove by removing the two 3mm
set screws that secure the top to the sides. The set screws are
located on the outside of the stove on the top of each side panel.
Use a 10mm wrench to remove the double rear heatshields
from the back of the stove. Remove the front door to avoid
potential damage to the glass. NOTE: Loss of the hinge
washer will result in improper door alignment when
reinstalling the door.

any remaining sharp edges with a file or hand grinder.
Reinstall the top casting and front door with hinge washer.
Replace the rear heatshields and shield spacer nuts. Remove
the metal cover plates from the heatshields and reinstall.
Reminder: Reinstall the small nuts used as spacers between
the two heatshields. See fig 2.
Side-exit Venting
If venting through the side is desired it will be necessary to
remove the top casting. Using a 3mm allen wrench remove
the two set screws that secure to the top to the side panels.
Remove the front door to avoid damage to the glass.
Reminder: Loss of the door washer will result in improper
door alignment when reinstalling the door.
Using a claw hammer or a small sledge hammer strike the
center of the 6” “knock-out” disc from the inside of the
stove. The “knock-out” disc will break into four wedges and
may need to be tapped out. Touch up any remaining sharp
edges with a file or hand grinder. Reinstall the front door,
remembering the washer and the top casting.
Installing the flue collar
Place the self-adhesive gasket (Fig.3A) on the underside of
the smoke outlet (Fig. 3B).
Mount the smoke outlet with use of the supplied screws
and cross bar (Fig. 3C)
Secure the first section of stove pipe to the flue collar using
two sheet metal screws.
Stove pipe - chimney connector
The chimney connector is a single walled pipe used
to connect the stove to the chimney. For use with the
Jøtul F3 the chimney connector must be 6” in diameter, with
a minimum thickness of 24 gauge black steel.
Aluminum and galvanized steel pipe is not acceptable for
use with the Jøtul F3. These materials cannot withstand the
extreme temperatures of a wood fire and can give off toxic
fumes when heated.
Each chimney connector or stove pipe section must be
installed to the stove flue collar and to each other with the
male (crimped) end toward the stove. See figure 4.
Fig. 4
Crimped end installed
toward the stove
This prevents any amount of condensed or liquid creosote
from running down the outside of the pipe or the stove top.
All joints must be secured with three sheet metal screws to
ensure that the sections do not separate.
For the best performance the chimney connector should
be as short and direct as possible, with no more than two
90° elbows. The maximum horizontal run is 36” and a
recommended total length of stove pipe should not exceed
10 feet. Always slope horizontal runs upward 1/4” per foot
toward the chimney.
No part of the chimney connector may pass through an attic
or roof space, closet or other concealed space, or through a
floor or ceiling. All sections of the chimney connectors must
be accessible for cleaning.
5
139676-R06 F 3 CB 1/18
Where passage through a wall or partition of combustible
construction is desired, the installation must conform with
NFPA 211 or CAN/CSA-B365, and is also addressed in this
manual.
Do not connect this unit to a chimney flue servicing another
appliance.
Do not use the connector pipe as a chimney.
2.0 Chimney requirements
There are two types of chimneys suitable for the Jøtul F3:
1. A code- approved masonry chimney with a flue liner.
2. A prefabricated chimney complying with the requirements
for type HT (2100°F) chimneys per UL 103 or ULC S629.
The chimney size should not be less than the cross-sectional
area of the flue collar, and not more than three times greater
than the cross-sectional area of the flue collar.
When selecting a chimney type and the location for the
ce of the chimney, as well as the proximity of surrounding
trees or buildings.
As a result, a short masonry chimney on the exterior of a
house will give the poorest performance. This is because it
can be very difficult to warm the chimney thereby creating
inadequate draft. In extremely cold northern areas it may
be necessary to reline the chimney or extend its height to
help establish draft.
Oppositely, a tall masonry chimney inside the house is easier
to keep warm and will perform the best.
The following guidelines give the necessary chimney
requirements based on the national code (ANSI-NFPA 211
for the us. And CSA CAN-B365 for Canada). However, many
local codes differ from the national code to take into account
climate, altitude, or other factors. It is important that you
check with your local building officials to find out what
codes apply in your area before installing your new Jøtul F3.
CHIMNEY INSPECTION: A Level II (camera) inspection
of an existing chimney system must be conducted by
a qualified technician as specified by NFPA 211 when
verification of the suitability of the chimney for new or
changed conditions of service is needed or when a Level
I inspection is not sufficient to determine serviceability
of the chimney.
6
Masonry chimneys
When installing the Jøtul F3 into a masonry chimney you
must conform to all of the following guidelines:
• The chimney flue size should not be less than the cross
sectional area of the stove flue collar.
• The cross-sectional area of the flue of a chimney with
no walls exposed to the outside below the roofline
shall not be more than three times the crosssectional
area of the stove flue collar.
• The cross-sectional area of the flue of a chimney with
one or more walls exposed to the outside below the
roofline shall not be more than two times the crosssectional area of the stove flue collar.
• Larger chimney flues should be relined with a listed or
code approved liner.
• The masonry chimney must have a fireclay liner or
equivalent, with a minimum thickness of 5/8” and
must be installed with refractory mortar. There must
be at least 1/2” air space between the flue liner and
chimney wall.
• The fireclay flue liner must have a nominal size of 8”
x 8”, and should not be larger than 8”x 12”. If a round
fireclay liner is to be used it must have a minimum
inside diameter of 6” and not larger than 8” in
diameter. If a chimney with larger dimensions is to be
used, it should be relined with an appropriate liner that
is code approved.
• The masonry wall of the chimney, if brick or modular
block, must be a minimum of 4” nominal thickness. A
mountain or rubble stone wall must be at least 12” thick.
• A newly-built chimney must conform to local codes and
in their absence must recognize national regulations.
• When using an existing chimney, it must be inspected
by a professional licensed chimney sweep, fire official,
or code officer, to ensure that the chimney is in proper
working order.
• No other appliance can be vented into the same flue.
• An airtight clean-out door should be located at the
base of the chimney.
Prefabricated chimneys
If a prefabricated metal chimney is to be used it must
be a chimney type that is tested and listed for use with
solid fuel burning appliances. High temperature (ht)
chimney standard UL103 for the U.S. And high temperature
standard ULC S-629 for Canada.
The manufacturer’s installation instructions must be
followed precisely. Always maintain the proper clearance
to combustibles as established by the pipe manufacturer.
This clearance is usually a minimum of 2”, although it may
vary by manufacturer or for certain chimney components.
USA/Canada
139676-R06 F 3 CB 1/18
Chimney Height
Common method
The minimum chimney height for the F 3 CB is 15 feet.
Whether a masonry chimney or prefabricated metal chimney
is used it must rise at least 3 feet higher than the highest
point where it passes through the roof and at least 2 feet
higher than the highest part of the roof or structure that is
within 10 feet of the chimney, measured horizontally. See
figure 6.
Fig. 6
At least 3 feet
At least 3 feet
When passing through a combustible wall to a masonry
chimney this method requires the removal of all combustible
materials from at least 12” around the chimney connectors
proposed location. With a 6” round liner the minimum area
required would be 31” x 31” square.
The space is then filled with at least 12” of brick around a
fireclay liner. Remember, the liner must be ASTM C35 or
equivalent, with a minimum wall thickness of 5/8”.
It is important to remember to locate the pass-through
at least 18” from the ceiling for proper clearance to
combustibles.
It will be necessary to cut wall studs, install headers, and
construct a sill frame to maintain the proper dimensions
and to support the weight of the brick.
The bricks must be solid brick with a minimum of 3 1/2”
thick (4” nominal).
10 feet
Chimneys shorter than 15 feet may not provide adequate
draft. This could result is smoke spilling into the room from
the stove when loading the stove, or when the door is open.
In addition, inadequate draft can cause back puffing, which
is a build up of gases inside the firebox.
Other times, chimney height can create excessive draft which
can cause high stove temperatures and short burn times.
Excessive drafts can be corrected by installing a butterfly
damper. If you suspect you have a draft problem, consult
your dealer.
Wall pass-throughs
When your installation unavoidably requires the chimney
connector to pass through a combustible wall to reach the
chimney, always consult your local building officials, and be
sure any materials to be used have been tested and listed
for wall pass-throughs.
In the U.S.
The national fire protection association’s publication,
NFPA 211, standard for chimneys, fireplaces, vents and solid
fuel burning appliances permits four methods for passing
through a combustible wall. Before proceeding with any
method be sure to consult with your local building officials
to discuss any local code requirements.
Refractory mortar must be used at the junction of the
chimney and the pass-through liner. The pass-through
liner must not penetrate the chimney liner beyond the
inner surface of the chimney liner. Use extreme care when
constructing the hole in the chimney liner, the tiles can
shatter easily. See figure 7.

In Canada
In Canada the standard has been established by the canadian
standard association. The installation must conform to CAN/
CSA-B365, installation code for solid fuel burning appliances
and equipment. Before proceeding be sure to consult your
local building inspector.

This method requires the removal of all combustible
materials from at least 18” (457mm) around the chimney
connector’s proposed location. With a 6” round liner the
minimum area required would be 43” x 43” square.
It is important to remember to locate the pass-through at
least 25” from the ceiling to maintain the proper clearance
to combustibles.
The space that is cleared of combustible materials must then
remain empty. Sheet metal panels can then be used to cover
the area. However, when using a panel on both sides of the
wall each cover must be installed on noncombustible spacers
at least 1” from the wall. If one panel of sheet metal is to be
used it may be installed flush to the wall.
See section 5.3.1 and 5.3.2 of CAN/CSA - B365-m91.
Consult your local building inspector, authorized Jøtul Dealer,
NFPA 211 in the U.S. or CAN/CSA-B635 in Canada for other
approved wall pass-through methods.
3.0 Connecting to the
chimney
Masonry chimney
When installing a Jøtul F 3 into a masonry chimney through
a “thimble”(the opening through the chimney wall to the
flue), the thimble must be lined with ceramic tile or metal
and be securely cemented in place.
The chimney connector/stove pipe must slide completely
inside the thimble to the inner surface or the flue liner. It
may be necessary to make use of a thimble sleeve (a pipe
with a slightly smaller diameter than standard stove pipe).
This special pipe can be easily installed into a thimble. See
Figure 8.
8
Thimble
Make sure the connector pipe or thimble sleeve does not
protrude into the flue liner, thereby restricting the area the
smoke has to flow through. This bottle-neck will have a
negative affect on the chimney system.
The chimney connector should be sealed at the thimble with
refractory cement and the stove pipe leading to the stove
should have a minimum of three screws.
Do not connect this stove to a chimney flue servicing another
appliance of any kind.
Hearth-mount into a masonry fireplace
The Jøtul F 3 may be installed into a masonry fireplace
provided the opening is a minimum of 28 1/2” high. The short
leg package reduces the stove’s height by 2 1/4”.
When installing the Jøtul F 3 into a masonry fireplace, code
requires that the fireplace damper plate be removed or
securely fixed in the open position. A connector pipe must
then extend from the stove’s flue exit through the damper
area of the fireplace and into the chimney tile liner. See
figure 9.

The inside area of the flue liner must not be less than the area
of the stove’s flue exit, and cannot be more than three times
greater than the cross sectional area of the stove’s flue exit.
If the chimney liner is too large to accommodate the stove, an
approved relining system must be installed to resize the flue.
A new sheet metal damper block-off plate must be installed
around the connector pipe at the damper frame and sealed
with the proper sealant (usually high-temp silicone).
Fireplace installation must also observe the proper clearances
to surrounding trim and mantels (addressed in clearance
section of this manual). In addition, fireplace installations
must also adhere to the floor protection guidelines specified
in the following section.
Prefabricated chimneys
When installing the Jøtul F 3 to a prefabricated metal
chimney always follow the pipe manufacture’s instructions
and be sure to use the components that are required. This
usually includes some type of “smoke pipe adapter” that is
secured to the bottom section of the metal chimney and
allows the chimney pipe to be secured to it with three sheet
metal screws. See figures 10 and 11.
9
139676-R06 F 3 CB 1/18
4.0 Clearances to combustibles
Floor Protection
Clearances to walls and ceilings
Floor protection under the Jøtul F 3, must be any
non- combustible material with an insulative
R value of 1.1.
The following clearances have been tested to UL and ULC
standards and are the minimum clearances specifically
established for the Jøtul F 3. (See next page)
The bottom heatshield (standard equipment) is required in
all installations.
The following charts and diagrams give the required
clearances you must maintain when installing the
Jøtul F 3 near combustible surfaces.
Individual sections of floor protection must be mortared
together t,o prevent sparks from falling through to
combustible materials. Any carpeting must be removed
from under the floor protection.
In the U.S.and Canada
The Jøtul F 3 must be installed on a non-combustible surface
extending a minimum of 16” for U.S. (46 cm for Canada) in
front of the stove and 8” (20 cm) on the remaining sides of
the stove (measured from side and back panels).
This will result in a minimum floor protection of 39 cm D x
39 cm W. for U.S.,and 104 cm D x 99 cm W for Canada.
See figure 12.
In a rear vent installation the floor protection must also
extend under the stove pipe a minimum of 2” (5 cm) beyond
either side of the pipe.

If you are not sure of the combustible nature of a material,
consult your local fire officials.
Remember: “Fire resistant” materials are considered
combustible; they are difficult to ignite, but will burn. Also
“fire-rated” sheet rock is also considered combustible.
Contact your local building officials about restrictions and
installation requirements in your area.
Using shields to reduce clearances
Pipe shields: When using listed pipe shields to reduce the
connector clearance to combustibles, it must start 1” above
the lowest exposed point of the connect pipe and extend
vertically a minimum of 25” above the top surface of the
stove.
Double wall pipe: Listed double wall pipe is an acceptable
alternative to connector pipe heatshields.
Wall-mounted protection: When reducing clearances
through the use of wall mounted protection:
A
A
A combustible surface is anything that can burn (i.e. Sheet
rock, wall paper, wood, fabrics etc.). These surfaces are not
limited to those that are visible and also include materials
that are behind non-combustible materials.
39” U.S
(104 cm Can)
In the U.S. Refer to NFPA 211, standard for chimneys, fireplaces,
vents and solid fuel burning appliances, for acceptable
materials, proper sizing and construction guidelines.
In Canada, refer to CAN/CSA-B365, installation code for solidfuel burning appliances and equipment, also for acceptable
materials, proper sizing and construction guidelines.
Stove mounted rear heatshield is standard equipment on
all Jøtul F 3`s. No other stove mounted heat shield may
be used.

Notice
Accessories for woodstoves for clearance reduction have
been developed by many manufacturers. If not following
the methods of the installation codes, be sure that any
accessory you choose has been tested by an independent
laboratory and carries the laboratory’s testing mark. Make
sure to follow all of the manufacturer’s instructions.
Always contact your local building inspector or fire officials
about restriction and requirements in your area. Reminder,
it is the local officials who have final authority in the
installations approval.
Alcove
The Jøtul F 3 is approved for installations in an unprotected
and protected alcove provided the following guidelines are
followed: Stoves must be positioned as shown in figures 13
or 14.

5.0Operation
Please read the following section completely before
building a fire in your new Jøtul F 3 CB.
5.1 Combustion Efficiency
EPA qualified tested efficiency values are not currently
available for the Jøtul F 3 CB . The EPA default efficiency for
non-catalytic wood heaters is 63% per Federal Register 40
CFR Part 60, Subpart AAA.
There are, however, aspects of efficiency that you should
be aware of in order to get the most from your stove.
Operation habits and fuel moisture can have a significant
effect on efficiency. Poorly seasoned wood having a higher
than optimum moisture content, can reduce the amount
of energy transferred tothe living area as a result of the
energy expended to evaporate the excess fuel moisture
in order for the wood to burn. Operational aspects, such
as not building a robust kindling fire to readily ignite the
larger fuel pieces, can result in an inefficient smoldering
fire. Additionally, most modern wood heaters’ optimum
performance and efficiency are at the medium to medium
-low burn rates.
The location of the stove can have a significant effect on
heating efficiency, primarily in regards to distribution of
the heat. For example, a wood heater centrally located
in the residence in an open living area will likely provide
better circulation of heat than will a stove located in a
room adjacent to the larger living area.
5.2 CO Emissions
EPA qualified tested carbon monoxide (CO) values ar
not currently available for the Jøtul F 3 CB. There are,
however, aspects of CO that you should know. Most all
means of combustion produce CO, including wood fires.
Maintaining a well-established fire and avoiding operation
that produces a smoldering, smoky fire, will greatly reduce
CO levels.
It is highly recommended that a CO monitor (detector)
be installed in the same room as the stove. The monitor,
however, should be located as far away as possible from the
stove to avoid alert soundings when adding fuel to the fire.
5.3 Wood Fuel and Performance
The F 3 CB is designed to burn natural wood only. Higher
efficiencies and lower emissions generally result when
burning air-dried, seasoned hardwoods, as opposed to
softwoods, green or freshly cut hardwoods. Wood that has
been air-dried for a period of 6 to 14 months will provide
the cleanest, most efficient heat. Wood seasoned more
than 2 years will burn too quickly to take advantage of the
stove’s low end efficiency strength.
14
A seasoned log will have check marks on the ends and be
lighter than an unseasoned log which will show little or no
check marks.
We recommed using a moisture meter to determine
the moisture content of your wood. For purposes of home
heating, your fuel should have a moisture content between
12 - 20%. Wood with higher moisture content will burn,
however, very inefficiently. Most of its heat value will be
lost to driving water out of the wood. Worse, that moisture
will condense as creosote in the relatively cool chimney
flue, increasing the potential for a chimney fire. Use of
unseasoned wood defeats the purpose of any modern woodburning stove.
DO NOT BURN:
• Coal;
• Garbage;
• Synthetic fuel or logs;
• Material containg rubber, including tires;
• Material containing plastics;
• Waste petroleum products, asphalt products, paints,
paint thinners or solvents;
• Materials containing asbestos;
• Construction or demolitioin 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 particle board.
(The prohibition against burning these materials does not
prohibit the use of fire starters made from paper, cardboard,
saw dust, wax or similar substances for the purpose of
starting a fire.)
The burning of any of these materials can result in the
release of toxic fumes, or render the heater ineffective and
cause smoke.Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel,
kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid, or similar liquids to start or
“freshen-up” the fire. Always keep such liquids away from
the heater at all times.
NOTE: Avoid letting logs rest directly on the glass panel. The
logs should be spaced off of the glass enough to allow for
proper air flow within the firebox.
5.4 Air Flow and Control
Your Jøtul F 3 CB is designed to support efficient combustion
and heat transfer by directing air through the stove in two
separate channels; Primary and Secondary.
Primary Air Control
Primary air is manually regulated by the Primary Air Control
lever located at the upper right corner of the stove. See Fig.
15-A. The valve position controls the volume of primary air
139676-R06 F 3 CB 1/18
entering the firebox and thereby affects fire intensity, heat
output and burn time. Primary air is directed to the main
body of the fire through a large manifold over the door
opening at the front of the stove. The manifold also creates
an ’air-wash” to help keep the viewing glass clean.
Secondary air allows combustion of volatile gas and other
by-products of primary combustion that would otherwise
enter the atmosphere unburned. This unregulated air is
preheated as it passes over the back of the stove and through
a stainless steel manifold at the top of the firebox. This
additional hot oxygen allows any unburned gasses to be
burned inside the stove. The action of secondary combustion
can be readily seen through the viewing glass a slow, rolling
flames suspended over the main fuel bed and smaller jets of
flame extending from the secondary manifold ports. At the
same time, no smoke will be observed exiting the chimney.
This is evidence that the stove is operating at the so-called
”sweet-spot” wherein optimum efficiency is realized.
Start-Up Air Control
The start-up air control lever is located below the glass in the
center of the front door. This control is for “start - up” air only
and should not be used to freshen an existing fire or during
refueling. Never leave the stove unattended while this
control is open, overfiring could result, which can damage
the appliance. See figure 15.-B.
Fig. 15
A
B
Use a Stove-top Thermometer
Determining the primary air setting for the best overall
performance for your particular needs and installation
will be established over time through trial and error. Each
installation has unique characteristics that will affect stove
performance. Use a stove-top thermometer to monitor the
status of the fire. Place the thermometer on the stove top,
centered two one side or the other. See fig. 16. Generally
speaking, once the stove temperature has reached 400°F
- 600°F, the air control may be set in a mid-range position
to allow adequate oxygen to support efficient combustion
throughout the burn cycle.
Fig. 16
Stove top thermometer
5.5 Break-In Procedure
The Jøtul F 3 CB is constructed of cast iron and stove furnace
cement. Cast iron, while very durable, expands and contracts
as it is heated and cooled. This type of construction requires
the stove to be “broken-in” gradually so that thermal
expansion does not occur too quickly. The following steps
describe the proper break-in procedure for the Jøtul F 3 CB:
1. Light a small fire of newspaper and kindling. Only allow
the stove to reach a maximum surface temperature of
200°F (93° C). Burn for approximately 1 hour.
2. Allow the stove to cool to room temperature.
3. Light a second fire, allowing the stove to reach a maximum temperature of 300°F (149°C) for 1 hour.
4. Cool the stove to room temperature.
5. Light a third fire and gradually allow the stove to reach
a surface temperature of 400°F (204°C).
6. Cool stove to room temperature. This completes the
“break-in” procedure.
Note: Keep the stove under 400°F (204°C) surface temperature
during any “break-in fire”, with the exception of the last
“break-in” fire. If the temperature exceeds 400°F, move the
primary air control lever all the way to the left to shut off
the air supply completely. It is normal that the stove top
temperature will continue to climb until the fuel burns down
somewhat. Once the fire is out and the stove has cooled to
room temperature, continue the break-in procedure. Never
attempt to reduce the temperature by removing burning
logs from the fire.
NOTE: It is normal for a new painted stove to emit an odor
and smoke during the first several fires. This is caused by the
seasoning of the high temperature paint and will diminish
with each fire. Opening a window or door to provide
additional ventilation will alleviate this condition.
15
139676-R06 F 3 CB 1/18
5.6 Starting and Maintaining a Fire
Burn only solid wood directly on the bottom grate of the
stove. Do not elevate the fire in any way.
WARNING: THE ASH PAN DOOR MUST ALWAYS BE SECURELY CLOSED
WHEN THE STOVE IS IN OPERATION. BURNING THE STOVE WITH THE
ASH DOOR OPEN WILL PROMOTE UNEVEN THERMAL EXPANSION
AND CAN RESULT IN DAMAGE TO THE STOVE AND VOID YOUR
WARRANTY.
Traditional Fire Building
1. With both the primary and start-up air control levers in
the full open position (to the right), place several sheets
of crumbled paper directly on the grate. On top of the
newspaper, place several pieces of small dry kindling
(approx. 1” in diameter) with two to three larger logs
(approx. 3” to 5” in diameter) on top.
2. Light the fire and close the door, slowly building the fire
by adding larger and larger logs. Be sure to follow the
break-in procedure before creating a hot fire that might
damage the stove.
3. Once the stove has reached a surface temperature
range of between 400° and 600°, (204°C -316°C), adjust
the primary air control lever as necessary to generate
the heat output and burn time desired.
We recommend using a magnetic stove top thermometer to monitor the surface temperature of the stove.
The optimum surface temperature range for the most
efficient burn is between 400° and 600° (204°C -316°C).
for the best locations to place a stove-top thermometer.
Top-Down Fire Building
Many people find this method to be superior to the traditional method.
Creosote and Soot Formation and
the Need for Removal
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other
organic vapors which combine with expelled moisture
to form creosote. These creosote vapors condense in
the relatively cool chimney flue of a slow burning fire.
The creosote that accumulates in the flue is highly
flammable and is the fuel of chimney fires. To prevent
a chimney fire, the creosote needs to be removed by
sweeping the chimney and flue connector. The frequency
of sweeping will depend on how you operate your stove.
An accumulation of 1/4” or more on the sides of the flue or
connector is considered hazardous and should be removed.
In the event that creosote in your chimney or flue connector
ignites, the resulting fire is often accompanied by a roaring
noise and a crackling sound as flakes of burned creosote
break loose. lf you suspect you are having a chimney fire,
immediately close the primary air control and make sure
the stove door is closed. Call the fire department and get
everyone safely out of the house.
Trying to extinguish the fire in the stove will not help. In
fact it can make the matter worse by allowing more oxygen
through the door, which then accelerates the fire in the
chimney. When the roaring and crackling has stopped, you
should resist the temptation to open the door and look at
the fire. The fire may have suffocated, but could rekindle
when you open the door. After a chimney fire, do not use
your stove until the chimney and the flue connector has
been cleaned and inspected to ensure that no damage
has occurred.
1. With both the primary and start-up air control levers
in the full open position (to the right), place two short
1/4-split logs on the firebox floor, perpendicular to the
rear wall, about 6 inches apart.
5.7 Adding Fuel
3. Place one or two smaller logs on top of the kindling.
• Place only the Primary Air Control in the full open
position (far right). The Start-up Air Control should be
fully closed when the stove is operating.
2. Place kindling across the base logs.
5. Place newspaper between the two bottom logs under
the kindling. Light the news paper and close the door.
Continue to add kindling and small logs as necessary to
build the fire. Keep the air control fully open until the
fire is well-established.
WARNING: DO NOT OVERFIRE THIS HEATER. IF ANY PART
OF THE STOVE OR CHIMNEY CONNECTOR GLOWS, YOU ARE
OVERFIRING. A HOUSE FIRE OR SERIOUS DAMAGE TO THE
STOVE OR CHIMNEY COULD RESULT.
ATTEMPTS TO ACHIEVE HEAT OUTPUT RATES THAT EXCEED
HEATER DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS CAN RESULT IN PERMANENT
DAMAGE TO THE HEATER.
16
When reloading the stove while it is still hot and a bed of
hot embers still exists, follow this reloading procedure:
• Always wear gloves when tending to the stove.
• Wait a few seconds before opening the door.
• Use a stove tool or poker to distribute the hot embers
equally around the firebox and away from the air
inlet ports at the front center of the firebox floor.
• Load the fuel, usually with smaller logs first.
• Close the door, be sure to latch the door tightly.
• Wait 5 – 10 minutes before adjusting the air controls
to the desired heat output setting. (If you have at
least a 2” thick ember bed when reloading, it may be
possible to close the door and immediately adjust the
air control setting).
139676-R06 F 3 CB 1/18
6.0 Maintenance
Ash removal: For your protection, always wear safety gloves
when handling the ash pan.
Remove the ash pan. When the stove is in operation always
close the ash pan door before leaving to dispose of the ashes.
The ashes should be placed in a metal container equipped
with a tight sealing lid. The container should be placed on
a noncombustible floor or on the ground, well 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.
Never operate the stove with a cracked or broken glass
panel.
1. Remove the door from the stove and place on a flat
surface.
2. Carefully remove all of the glass clips from the inside
of the door.
3. Gently remove all pieces of the glass panel and
gasketing.
4. Remove all remaining debris from the glass area using
a wire brush.
5. Apply a small bead of gasket/stove cement and the new
gasket. Do not overlap the ends of the gasket rope.
6. Center the new glass panel over the gasket and reinstall
the glass clips. See figure 17.
Important: Gradually tighten the glass clips in an
alternating pattern as you would a vehicle wheel.
7. It may be necessary to re-tighten the glass clips after
the stove has been burned for a few hours and the
gasketing has seated.
Glass care
Chimney System
Ash removal will be required periodically depending
on how frequently the stove is used. Conveniently, the
Jøtul F 3 CB is equipped with an ash pan assembly for easy
ash removal, without the need for opening the front doors.
The ash pan door is located under the front ashlip of the stove.
To open the ash door rotate the door knob counterclockwise
to unlatch the door and clockwise to latch the door.
Cleaning: On occasion it will be necessary to clean the carbon
deposits and fly ash off of the glass. If the carbon and fly ash
are allowed to remain on the glass for an extended period of
time it could eventually cause the glass to become etched
and cloudy. Any creosote, which might deposit on the glass,
will burn off during the next hot fire.
The proper cleaning procedure is as follows:
1. Glass needs to be completely cool.
2. Only use a cleaner that is specifically designed for this
purpose. The use of abrasives will damage the glass and
ultimately leave the glass frosted.
3. Rinse and dry glass completely, before burning your stove.
Important:
Replace glass only with a ceramic glass panel specifically
designed for the Jøtul F 3. Do not use substitutes. Replacement
glass panels can be ordered through your Jøtul dealer.
The Jøtul F 3 CB is designed to burn cleanly and efficiently
when used according to the guidelines in this manual. In
order to maintain proper performance, you should inspect
the chimney and chimney connector at the beginning of
each heating season and then, every other month during
the heating season. Clean the chimney whenever creosote
and fly ash accumulation exceeds 1/4 inch in any part of
the system.
Chimney brushes are available from your local Jøtul dealer
or hardware supply store. Your dealer can also refer you to
a reputable, professional chimney sweep who will have all
the equipment to ensure a complete and proper job. Failure
to keep the chimney system free of creosote and build up
could result in a serious chimney fire.
Glass removal: Always operate the doors slowly and
cautiously to avoid cracking or breaking the glass. Never use
the door to push wood into the firebox. If the glass becomes
cracked or broken follow this procedure for replacement:

7.0 General Maintenance
As with your car, regular maintenance will prolong the life of
your stove and ensure satisfactory performance.
The following procedures do not take long and are generally
inexpensive, but when done consistently, increase the life of
your appliance and in turn, increase your years of enjoyment.
Enamel Care
• DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN HOT ENAMEL SURFACES.
Clean only cold enamel surfaces with a soft damp cloth
and polish with a clean dry cloth. Most stains can be removed with a solution of baking soda and vinegar. Let
this solution sit on the stain for a minute or two before
rubbing it dry with a damp cloth. Organic cleaning commercial cleaning solutions, such as Citra-Solv®, can also
be effective.
• DO NOT USE SOAPY OR ABRASIVE SOLUTIONS. These
can cause stains. Coffee, tea, and fruit jucies will also
cause stains.
• AVOID CONTACT WITH METAL OBJECTS. Trivets, kettles,
or pots, can damage the enamel.
Annual Inspection
• Empty stove of all soot and ashes. Only use a vacuum for
this job if the vacuum is specifically designed for ashes.
• Inspect the stove seams. Use a utility light to inspect the
stove inside and out for cracks or leaks. Replace all cracked
parts and repair any cement leaks with furnace cement.

Gasket Kit 157050, available from your local Jøtul Authorized
Dealer.
Check the door gasket for tightness. Close and latch the
doors on a dollar bill and slowly try to pull the dollar bill free.
If it can be easily removed then the seal is too loose. Check
several spots around the door, and repeat the procedure on
the ash pan door as well.

Gasket Replacement
1. Use pliers and a putty knife to remove the old gasket from the
door.
2. Thoroughly clean the channel with a wire brush.
3. Apply a small bead of cement to the channel.
4. Gently press the new gasket into the cement to seat it in the
channel. Close and latch the door and then reopen. Wipe any
excess cement squeezed out from around the gasket.

8.0 Accessories
Firescreen (# 350168)
The Jøtul F 3 has been approved for use as an open fireplace,
with front door open. This feature is especially nice when
the ambience of a fire is desired. Some care should be taken
when operating the stove as a fireplace.
• Always have the firescreen in place, attached to the stove
front.
• Never over load the stove, for the best appearance burn
in the traditional three log configuration.
• Reminder, when burning the stove with the screen in
place, you are sacrificing efficiency for aesthetics, and
you will be consuming wood at a much faster rate.
Warning: Operate your Jøtul F 3 CB with the front door fully
open and the firescreen in place or fully closed. A partially
opened door may result in overfiring. Also, if the door is left
partly open, gas and flame may be drawn out of the stove
opening, creating risks from both fire and smoke.

9.0 Appendix
Alternate floor protection
All floor protection materials must be non-combustible ie. Metal,
brick, stone, mineral fiber boards). Any combustible material may
not be used.
The easiest means of determining if a proposed alternate floor
material meets requirements listed in this manual is to follow
this procedure.
R-value = thermal resistance
K-value = thermal conductivity
C-value = thermal conductance
1. Convert the specification to r-value;
a.
If r-value is given, no conversion is needed.
b. If k-value is given with a required thickness (t) in inches:
R=1/k X T.
c.
If c-value is given: R=1/C.
2. Determine the r-value of the proposed alternate floor protector.
a. Use the formula in step 1 to convert values not expressed
as “R”.
b.
For multiple layers, add r-values of each layer to determine
overall r-value.
3. If the overall R-value of the sustem is greater than the
R-value of the specified floor protector, the alternate is
acceptable.
Example:
The specified floor protector should be 3/4” thick material with a
k-factor of 0.84. The proposed alternate is 4” brick with a c-factor
of 1.25 over 1/8” mineral board witha k-factor of 0.29.
Step A. Use formula above to convert specifications to
R-value. R=1/k x t= 1/.84 x .75 = .893
Step B. Calculate r of proposed system.
4” brick of c-1.25, therefore
R brick = 1/c = 1/1.25 = 0.80
1/8” mineral board of K = 0.29 therefore
R mineral board = 1/.29 x 0.125 = 0.431
Total R = R brick + R mineral board= 0.8 + 0.431=1.231
Step C. Compare proposed system R = 1.231 to specified R of
0.893. Since R is greater than required, the system is
acceptable.

EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS
NOTICE: This warranty is void if installation or service is
performed by someone other than an authorized installer
or service agency, or if installation is not in conformance
with the installation and operating instructions contained
in this owner’s manual or local and/or national fire and
building regulations. A listing of local authorized installers,
service agencies and gas suppliers can be obtained from the
National Fireplace Institute at http://www.nficertified.org/.
This warranty does not cover the following:
1. Repair or replacement of parts that are subject to normal
wear and tear during the warranty period or to parts
that may require replacement in connection with normal
maintenance. These parts include paint, gaskets, burn
plates, ceramic insulation blankets, skamol baffles and
panels, firebricks, fire grates, or glass (Ceramic glass is
warranted against thermal breakage only).
2. Damage due to incorrect installations not in conformance
with the installation instructions contained in this
owner’s manual or local and/or national fire and building
regulations.
3. Damage, including damage to enamel surfaces, caused
by improper operation, over-firing, and/or misuse.
Improper operation, such as burning the stove with the
ash door open, can damage the stove. Over-firing occurs
when any part of the stove glows red. Over-firing can
also be identified by warped plates, rust-colored cast
iron, paint pigment that has turned dusty white, or
bubbling, cracking and discoloration of the enamel finish.
Misuse includes, without limitation, use that is not in
conformance with the operating instructions contained
in this owner’s manual.
4. Damage to enamel finish including chipping, mechanical
or chemical abrasion, crazing, staining, or rust caused by
high humidity or salt air environments.
5. Damage from or repair of rust. Use of a stove-top steamer
can cause rust.

IN NO EVENT SHALL JØTUL, ITS PARENT COMPANY,

OR REPRESENTATIVES BE LIABLE OR RESPONSIBLE TO YOU
FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL,
PUNITIVE OR OTHER SIMILAR DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT
NOT LIMITED TO, LOST PROFITS, LOST SALES, INJURY TO
PERSON OR PROPERTY, OR DAMAGES TO A STRUCTURE
OR ITS CONTENTS, ARISING UNDER ANY THEORY OF LAW
WHATSOEVER. ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THE
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR OTHERWISE, ARE LIMITED

ORAL, WRITTEN OR OTHER WARRANTY WITH RESPECT TO
JØTUL OR SCAN STOVES OR FIREPLACES.

augment, or extend this limited warranty on behalf of JØTUL.
NO MODIFICATION OR CHANGE TO THIS WARRANTY WILL
BE EFFECTIVE UNLESS IT IS MADE IN A WRITTEN DOCUMENT
MANUALLY SIGNED BY AN AUTHORIZED OFFICER OF JØTUL.
An authorized installer may have been provided with certain
information related particularly to the Jøtul or Scan Stove or
Fireplace; however, no authorized installer or other person
who may service the appliance is an agent of JØTUL. No
inference should be made that JØTUL has tested, certified,
or otherwise pronounced any person as qualified to install or
service the appliance. JØTUL shall not be liable or otherwise
responsible for any error or omission by a person installing
or servicing a Jøtul or Scan Stove or Fireplace Insert.

defective, you should contact your nearest authorized Jøtul
dealer, who will process a warranty claim. IN ORDER TO

Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of
incidental or consequential damages, or limitations on the
length of implied warranties. Therefore, the above exclusions
or limitations may not apply to you. This warranty gives you
specific legal rights, and you may have other rights, which
vary from state to state.
JØTUL reserves the right to discontinue, modify or change the
materials used to produce the Jøtul or Scan Stove or Fireplace
Insert. JØTUL shall have the right to replace any defective
component with substitute components determined by
JØTUL to be of substantially equal quality and price.
The dollar value of JØTUL’s liability for breach of this warranty
shall be limited exclusively to the cost of furnishing a
replacement component. JØTUL may at its discretion
discharge all obligations by refunding the wholesale price
of any defective part or appliance. JØTUL shall in no event be
liable for any special, indirect or consequential damage of any
nature which is in excess of the original wholesale purchase
price of the product. JØTUL shall not in any event be liable
for the cost of labor expended by others in connection with
any defective component. Any costs or expenses beyond
those expressly assumed by JØTUL under the terms of this
warranty shall be the sole responsibility of the owner(s) of
the Jøtul Stove or Fireplace.
