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.
Planning The Installation
We suggest that you have an authorized Travis Industries dealer install your stove. If you install the
stove yourself, your authorized dealer should review your plans for installation.
Check with local building officials for any permits required for installation of this stove and notify your
insurance company before proceeding with installation.
Preparation for Installation
•
Check for damage to the exterior of the stove (dents should be reported, scratches can be fixed by
applying touch up paint).
•
Check the interior of the firebox (replace cracked firebrick and make sure baffle is in place).
The stove can be lightened by removing the firebricks and baffle. - see page 27.
Stove Installation Considerations
The table below details the six most common types of installations and the considerations for each
type. Alternative methods of installation are available if they comply with local building codes.
Installation Type
Considerations
Standard Ceiling with a Factory Built Chimney
(Page 14)
• Requires ceiling and roof penetration
Cathedral Ceiling with a Factory Built Chimney
(Page 14)
• Cathedral style chimney support required
Exterior Factory Built Chimney
(Page 15)
• Uses two elbows to route chimney outside
• Provides best draft
• Provides best draft
• Exterior chimney is hidden from the room
• Elbows reduce draft
• Optional exterior chase reduces cold air blockage
Hearth Stove Positive Connection
(Page 15)
• Utilizes existing masonry or zero clearance (metal) chimney
• Provides good draft due to full reline
• Easier to clean than direct or horizontal hearth stove
Hearth Stove Direct Connection
(Page 16)
• Utilizes existing masonry or zero clearance (metal) chimney
• Requires construction of a "block-off plate"
• Draft reduced due to elbows & chimney cross section
Hearth Stove Horizontal Connection
(Page 16)
• Utilizes existing masonry chimney (not approved for zero
clearance (metal) fireplaces)
• Draft is good because of vertical section above stove

Stove Clearance
(as outlined in this manual)
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 n o t)
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
Installations".

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.
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.

Starting a Fire
Since the dawn of time man has debated the best way to start a fire. Some use the boy-scout "teepee", 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.
N e v e r 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
grate 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.

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. Ashes should be retained in the closed container until all
cinders have thoroughly cooled.

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

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause
Smoke Enters Room
During Start-Up
•
Cold Air Blockage - burn a piece of newspaper to
establish a draft.
•
Close the doors - if the flame is not getting enough air,
first make sure the air control is open (all the way in).
If additional air is needed, a small crack in the door is
all that is needed.
•
Cold Air Blockage - burn a piece of newspaper to
establish a draft.
•
Not enough starter paper - use additional newspaper if
necessary.
•
Not enough air - first make sure the air control is open
(all the way in). If additional air is needed, a small
crack in the door is all that is needed.
•
Let the air stabilize before fully opening the door. Push
the air control in before 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.
•
Wood is Wet - see the section "Selecting Wood" on
page 21 for details on wood.
•
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.
•
Air Control is Not Wide Open - Make sure the air
control is all the way in. Slide the control back and
forth to insure the control is not stuck.
•
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.
•
This appliance burns for up to 8 hours. Depending
upon wood, draft, and other factors, the burn time may
be shorter. Make sure the doors are sealing and not
allowing air into the firebox - See the section "Door and
Glass Inspection" on page 24 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
23
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 n o t 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.
1
Let the stove cool completely (at least two hours after the last coal has extinguished).
2
Place a cloth or cardboard protector over the hearth to catch ash and protect against
scratching.
3
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.
A
A
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.
AAA
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. Open the door and lift straight up to remove the door.

Door Handle
To tighten the door cam, remove the door handle and discard one of the washers
betwen the door frame and cam. To loosen the door cam, add a washer between
the door frame and cam.
Check for Creosote Buildup
Creosote buildup should be checked monthly during the heating season. Either look down the chimney
from the top or remove a chimney connector section. Any more than 1/4" of buildup requires chimney
cleaning. Creosote develops quickest when burning at a low temperature or when burning unseasoned wood. When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other vapors which combine with
moisture to form creosote. Creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney flue and creosote
residue accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited, this creosote makes an extremely hot 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.

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.

Firebrick and Baffle Inspection
Use the illustration on page 27 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 three 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 perimeter of the glass is enclosed with channel gasket to prevent damage. The glass retainer
holds the glass against the door frame and is secured with 12 screws. Remove the screws and
door retainer to access the glass. When installing, do not over-tighten the screws.
Replacing the Door Gasket
The door gasket inserts into the outer groove of the door frame. Stove gasket cement holds it in
place. Before installing, remove any residual cement. Lay the gasket in place (start at the upper
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
The door handle consists of several components. See the illustration above for a component list
and installation order. For details on adjusting the door handle see page 25.
