SOURCE: Hello, I just got an older natural gas direct

Hi John, it should say on the front or somewhere near the control panel what model it is. If you could email a good picture of it to me I might be able to tell. If it is a Monitor heater, go to www.monitor.com or if it is a Toyostove heater go to www.toyostove.com and you can download an owners manual. The most recent models of Monitor gas heater are the GF 3800 and GF 1800. The older one is the GF 500. You can send a picture to nitensheaterservice@earthlink.net.

It the opening on the stove is on top of the stove, it's a 'B' vent. If the opening is in the back of the stove it's a "Direct Vent". However, some models have a connection on the back that's facing up,. A 90 degree elbow can be used to convert it to a horizontal run to enter an existing chimney, but then it must elbow up to connect to the pipe that is required to line the chimney. You should not just stop the pipe above the damper. It needs to run all the way to the top of the chimney, then have flashing seal the chimney's clay liner and a termination cap on the top.

here is a link to the Owners Manual/Installation Instructions for a Model 2600. It installs the same way as the 2610. http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/62b85343-a800-4898-85a1-3d6d3c524259.pdf

Hope this helps you sort things out and do a proper installation.

SOURCE: How do I get wood stov in the Chimney?

With a wood stove or vent type chimney it is easy, just take a section of chimney out and insert the heater. With a brick chimney you may have room to put the heater in from inside the house. If not, lower the heater down the chimney.

ChimneyHeaters.com Chimney Heat Exchanger
Hi. I also have the toyo stove and that combined with one of these Heat exchangers will heat a 2000 sq/ft House to the point that you have to open the windows in winter.

I got mine at Chimneyheaters.com but I am sure there are of lots of places that have them.

Can't keep the wood burning in stove. How does the buck stove take in air?


To burn properly, it needs proper combustion air and proper draft. Draft is effected by the size and height of the flue the appliance is connected to and by how much combustion air is available. The appliance flue connection should not be reduced to fit a smaller chimney size. That is, an 8" flue should not have an 8 x 6 reducer to vent it into a 6" chimney.

The wood you are burning could contribute to a poorly burning fire. To burn properly, the wood needs to have been "seasoned" for a minimum of 1 year or close to it. Two years is even better. "Green"
or freshly cut wood contains an unbelieveable amount of moisture in it and a tremendous amount of the heat is wasted just "preheating" the wood to the temperature that causes it to release gasses for ignition.

I don't know the style or model of your Buck, but all wood burning appliances should have combustion air dampers of either a sliding design, rotating round design or hinged design with handle at the bottom front of the firebox. I'm sure there are some fancy new designs that have air piped in from outside the structure.

Every wood fired stove, fireplace or furnace has its own idiosyncrasies and its up to the user to determine what's required for making it operate as designed.

Tip

Alternative Heating Pellet Stoves and Pellet Inserts


Pellet stoves usually use wood pellets as their primary heat source. A pellet stove is defined as a stove that burns either compressed wood or biomass pellets to make heat to warm a home or other space.

Pellet stoves come as either free-standing units or fireplace pellet inserts which can be vented into an existing chimney. As an insert, you are able to replace your wood burning stove with this efficient and cost effect stove. Inserts also give the homeowner more of the look of a fireplace than that of a pellet stove. Pellet inserts can also be a great alternative for people who have busy lifestyles and are looking to get the beauty of a fire but prefer a cleaner burning renewable heat source.

Pellet stoves are freestanding structures that can give you the feeling that an old pot bellied stove did, tucked into a corner of a living room, den, or kitchen. Either the pellet inserts or freestanding stoves are a great alternative heating solution for keeping a house warm during the winter.

Many stove manufacturers recommend the using a corn and pellet mixture, but some are UL listed for many fuels other than pellets. These can include wheat, corn, sunflower seeds, and cherry pits.

Pellet stoves are a bit more efficient, burn cleaner, and are easier to use than conventional wood burning stoves. Pellet stoves often look very similar to wood stoves or fireplace inserts, however the similarities end there.

If you are considering burning alternative fuels then you will want to look into a pellet stove as a great way to heat your home. Pellet stoves and pellet insets have many great advantages over regular wood stoves that make them a practical heat for busy lifestyles.

I bought a house with a wood burning stove but I don't know how to operate it


First make sure everything is clean,from the chimney to the stove.insure all metal flues are tight from stove to chimney. Open damper on top of stove(some are in metal pipes). Open your draft vents, usually on clean out door at bottom. Depending on chimney draft you may need to open clean out door to get it started. Load your kindling and get it started. Add bigger wood as it catches. Turn down venting and drafting as the fire roars. Just don't shut draft before vents. You'll get used to balancing draft and vent as you go. I hope this helps

Woodstove smokes into the house


I've never used a ceramic chimney, or seen one for that matter. I know that the dual walled vent pipe works better when warn/hot. Can't explain it real well but the inner pipe gets hot while venting the heat and smoke. And between the inner and outer wall is cooler air, which is drawn down towards the wood burner. Creates a suction by the exhaust out of the center pipe. Mine smokes up the house when I leave the doors open and when it's a low flame inside. I'm sure you've checked on the manufacturers' specs for venting but, if you don't already know, look into the thermal dynamics of a dual walled vent pipe. And also a ceramic as you have. Has to be something with your stove install or vent pipe. Hope this couch advise helps!

an open fireplace is not going to heat your house only 5 feet in front of the fire place. 75% of the heat goes out your chimney and burns the wood very fast. sorry to say but if you are looking for heat you installed the wrong unit!
