Smoke and soot from my pleasant hearth stove

Your chimney must be properly installed above the roof line to prevent downdraft. The soot issue may be cause by burning wood that is too green, not dry enough to burn clean.

Safety is a concern when using a wood stove in your house. Be informed about the dangers of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors are mandatory by law in some states. Protect yourself and your family.

We have just had a wood burner stove fitted at some cost and we seem to have rather a lot of smoke smell in the room we thought with a stove this wood eliminate this . .

You won't be able to eliminate all smoke odors with any woodburning system that I am aware of. On a new installation it's possible that part of the smell is coming from light oil coatimg on stove from manufacturer burning off. I would also check setting on damper,and make sure chimney is clean. On manual damper I set them at full open at start. Then when I have a good hot fire going I shut mine down to 3/4. I would do some trial and error to find what works the best for you. I hope this helps. Thanks

I purchased an aqua star 1600h-lp to be installed in a cottage. Question is, the cottage is heated with a large wood stove/fireplace. The water heater is located in a bathroom at the other end of the...

I would say that the wood fire/stove must have a heck of a draw to affect the bathroom heater. Maybe a separate air supply from outside via a pipe,to the stove meshed off against vermin would decrease the problem. Plus it could stop cold air being sucked across the room from an outside door.
Downdraft through the heater could happen with either vertical or horizontal vent. More important is the direction of the prevailing wind [horizontal] ingress of water/snow etc [vertical]
We often use the separate air supply in the UK and if the pipe bore is large enough 4" plus it seems to work ok.

Distant needed around a woodburner stove in a fire place.

This type of outdoor fireplace is only designed for outdoor use. If you are thinking of using it indoors, I would not suggest it. The exhaust flume if not made to be used on the inside of a house. It should only be used outdoors with ample space around it to avoid touching patio furniture, grills, etc.

Does stove-top need downdraft if microwave has oven-hood combo?

We have a stove with no downdraft, and a microwave with a hood above it. It works just fine. I expect you could keep your downdraft and put a microwave without a hood above it, and that would also work. I don't think, however, you can buy an above the range mocrowave oven, that slides in on brackets, which will not have a hood.
