Hello chrisbaker,
In many cases you do however the regulations vary by town and state so your best bet is to speak with your local building inspector for the right direction on this. If you fail to comply to the local requirements and had a fire, your insurance would have an out and not pay you.. The risk of doing this without official approval is too great.. Hope that helps..

How do I use a Jotel 1 stove

Google: Jotel 1 stove
This comes up with tons of answers including the instalation and user manual. If you are burning wood be sure it is dry and also pine can cause pitch build up in the flue so keep it clean or it will eventually catch fire and burn itself clean along with the building it is in.

I am trying to shut down my stove at night to keep it going. (not burning out) How do I do this?

air is still getting in from somewhere when you shut all the dampers and doors. door seals if fitted may not be sealing. if you have only tryed wood as a fuel try coal to see if it stays in. but air feeding the fire is the problem

I have a quebb master multi fuel fire/stove it has a top flue pipe fitted how can i gain access to the flue to enable chimney sweeping

Hi Davebingj, It is quit simple to solve this problem. Inside your Quebb is a removable roof. You can lift up the roof a small bit, fold it together and pull it out of the front door. Then you have full acces to the flue pipe at the end of the stove. With the sweeping gear, which can bent easily, you can sweep the chimney very good because the sod coming out is staying inside the stove and doesn't sweep aroun the room. Hope this will help. If not give me an mail at: Hubert.

Water and debris in flue liner of Jotul Stove

You should have a swept T connector at the base, with the sweep going from the stove upwards, but the other end of the T going into a removable cap - or very short length of pipe. If you only have a standard bend - replace it with the T.

This is actually normal for wood burners. In an unlined chimney, the lighter "tar" fractions from the wood would soak into the brickwork, and show through the wall in a few years. In a lined system - they have to go somewhere, and usually condense inside the flue - running back down to the base.
The "chinese hat" style cap is actually very good for everything except sideways hail.

Sorry - but it's the nature of the fuel. It is possible to use a clay based absorbent at the base - Cat litter is actually fine.
