Yes Thats fine, Just get some Tar and "paint" the wood with tar, you only need to do this where the pipe passes.


Good luck and hope you get it right.

Hampton bay ceiling fan broke. How to screw it back up


It already looks like it's "screwed up". ( LOL) BEFORE BEGINNING READ ALL OF THIS FIRST< PLEASE> First turn off the breaker that supplies power to the fan. Take down the whole unit up to the ceiling mounts. It looks like the wood is broken that the screw bracket used to mount the fan is on. If it is you will need to reinforce the wood and rescrew the fan mounting bracket on it. THe ball carrier from the bracket should now be secure and ready to mount the swing ball of the fan at the top of the fan unit motor. Next rewire the fan to the wires in the ceiling with the wire nuts you removed. Tighten the ball screw and push the cover plate up to the ceiling, fastening it in place with the screws provided to the ceiling plate...Done!

Find spare and repair manual for intrepid wood stove


Alex, I don't know how old your Vermont Castings Intrepid wood stove is, but the only available Owner's Manual is for their fairly new model Intrepid II wood stove.

A little quick history. Vermont Castings was an independent company 10 years ago, that was bought up by Majestic (FMC) Fireplace Company of Canada. About 5 years ago, Majestic went belly up and the VC line was purchased by Monesson Hearth Products. There have been some improvements to their wood stoves in the past couple of years, so as to meet the new EPA Requirements. So, this manual may show some things your stove doesn't have.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know. Thanks.

I was just wondering if the EPA pellet stove needs a full chimney on the outside wall or if it is just vented l with a short chimney. It says is has an outdoor air kit. I'm not sure what that intails ...


The approved method of exhaust venting is a full Type L or PL Pipe chimney. The height of which must be a minimum of 3 feet higher the highest roof structure. The outdoor air kit is used to pull fresh combustion air into the system from the outside. The exhaust venting can go horizontally for no more than 2 ft and then must elbow up to what I stated above. OR if you have a single story home, it can go up through the ceiling, through the attic and terminate above the roof. Any time the vent pipe passes thru a combustible surface it must have a fire stop.

Keep in mind, this was just a brief overview of what is required. Each stove manufacturer as it's on guidelines for safe installation that will not only meet EPA Standards, but also your local Building Code Standards and NFPA Standards. Not installing it properly or not having it professionally installed, may void any claim you may have in the future with your homeowners insurance, that resulted as a loss, because of the stove and/or it's installation.

Hope this helps.

Is there a manual for an Acorn ranger wood stove


I haven't found one.... What i did was put a paint-marker line on the closed position.. Get a decent fire going with the door cracked open about 1" (5-10 min) - set both dampers to 1 full-turn open and close the door. Once it starts kicking heat (another 5 to 10 min) reduce it to 1/8 to 1/4 turn open. Seems to burn great like this. I use mine in the shop so i'll also thrown green and punky wood that I won't burn in my house in the belly of this beast and load it up at the end of the day and then close it down completely. It will burn the green / punk wood all night and will still have lots of coals after 12 hours.

Wood burning heater when putting wood into stove lots of smoke comes into the house when door is opened.


It ain't drafting right or you have the damper closed. Look for obstructions in the smoke stack.
Wood burning tips
  • Burn only wood. No garbage, plastics, rubber, paint or oil, briquettes, paper, etc. Burning these items releases harmful chemicals into the air.
  • Burn Wise Program from EPA: Emphasizes the importance of burning the right wood.
  • Build small, hot fires instead of large, smoldering ones.
  • Don't "bed the fire down" for the night. Holding a fire overnight is a fire hazard and can create serious indoor and outdoor air pollution problems.
  • Open your damper if the smoke is dark. Dark smoke indicates more pollution is being produced and fuel is being wasted.
  • Keep your stove clean and well-maintained. Follow manufacturer guidelines; replace catalytic stove filters every 1-4 years. Have your chimney checked and cleaned at least once a year.
Use seasoned wood The best fuel for woodstoves is dry, "seasoned" wood. Seasoned wood has a moisture content of about 20% or less. It tends to be dark in color, cracked on the ends, light in weight and has bark that is easily broken or peeled. Here are some tips for preparing seasoned wood:
  • Split the wood to help it dry. Wood will dry out more quickly and burn best if the wood is cut to about 3 1/2 inches to 6 inches in diameter.
  • Cover the split firewood to protect it from the weather and stack it loosely in alternating layers, at least 6 inches off the ground.
  • Time must be given to allow the wood to reach 20% or less moisture required for seasoned wood. This process takes approximately 6-12 months. Think ahead and buy next winter's wood well in advance.
It is recommended an annual chimney cleaning to remove creosote build up and to identify potential problems. Things to consider:
  • The Chimney cap may be plugged by debris.
  • Catalytic combustor and baffles are exposed to very high heat and deteriorate as used. Replace every 1-4 years depending on use.
  • Stovepipe angles and bolts are subject to corrosion.
  • Gaskets on airtight stove doors need replacement every few years. Gaskets and seals are used by the appliance designer to control the location and flow of air into the appliance.
  • Check seams on stoves sealed with furnace cement. Seams may leak and cause you to loose valuable heat and reduce the efficiency of the unit.
  • Replace broken or missing firebricks.
  • Keep the floor of your stove clean of debris and ash.

How do we install a burner on a fireplace?


Thinking of adding a fireplace or wood stove to your home? If so, proper installation and maintenance is absolutely critical to ensuring the fire stays inside your freestanding fireplace or wood stove and doesn't venture outside of it.

If your manufactured home already has a fireplace or wood stove, it's a good idea to go look over these safety guidelines to confirm that it was installed correctly. If you plan to install a fireplace or wood stove, follow these safety guidelines carefully.

First, don't try to tackle this project yourself. While installation manuals usually provide all the instructions necessary for a manufactured home owner to install a wood-burning fireplace or wood stove, the consequences of a mistake are so disastrous, it's a task best left to experts.

It's a good idea to first check with your insurance company for their guidelines before installing these items. Your insurance policy may not cover damages if a fireplace or wood stove was not professionally installed. Plus, the manufacturer's warranty on the fireplace or wood stove may not apply unless the unit is installed by a professional.

Ok i have 10-15 yr old firebox ,red ,on tiles ,flu...


You may need to remove the hat /top on the roof and run a sweep up & down it.
Before you star,t put paper down around the stove.
Use a shop vac to vacuum. Put the hose in the fire box under the stove pipe. Tape the door the best you can. Use a respirator and safety glasses and gloves.
