Sounds like you need to force it through the vent in the ceiling with a fan

Wher to find drawings for metters canberra no2 wood stove


As a farmer's son in Shepparton, Victoria, we have always had a Metter woodstove/cooktop combination that provided heat as well as cooking food. I guess there are a lot of Metters stove still around since the founder, Frederick Metter, started his production of stoves in Adelaide in 1891. Although it was just a wood stove to us without taking much notice of its history, we still have one at our old farm homestead. But I could help you find what you want by contacting the retailer of these stoves, it all depends where you live, and you could find even spare parts for your stove, or from there you could continue with your research by asking the dealer for information. Metter wood stoves are great winter warmers but can turn a kitchen into a sauna bath in summer, unless you have large windows to allow cool outdoor air to enter the room. Here is the link...

How is air supply regulated in wood burning stoves?


To regulate air flow, there are damper devices built into the stove, flue and stove pipes. Keeping the air flowing correctly through a wood-burning stove is essential for safe and efficient operation of the stove. Fresh air needs to enter the wood compartment to provide oxygen fuel for the fire; as the fire burns, the smoke must be allowed to rise through the stove pipes, and exit through the chimney.

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!

Live in a two story home with cathedral ceilings and the vent in the master bedroom upstairs isn't blowing any air what should i do?


First thing is to make sure somehow the vent didn't accidentally get closed. If that is not the case, then you might either have a restriction in that vent; a leak in that vent; or a leak in the trunk going back to and into the furnace. Take a look at the ducting (where it can be seen) and repair any obvious damage. Also.. don't forget to check for dampers in the "room" with the furnace. I have seen these moved in the past, and are often at fault. Hope this helps.

Hot Upstairs


A good heating guy should be able to balance your dampers to increase the airflow upstairs. Keep in mind heat rises. 2nd floors are the hardest to cool. You may need to add more returns to pull the heat down the the evaporator so it can be cooled. If you are lucky you may be able to adjust your blower up to a higher speed. You may have to even add some more supply airs. Check with your local building inspector. He may be able to give you a list of contractors in your area that would be good for this type of problem. Good luck>>>

Central Air Conditioning


It sounds like a restriction in your ducting. Feel the A/C vents in the hot rooms to see if cold air is blowing out of them. If the ducts are restricted, then it is possible that the air conditioning coils are freezing up from lack of circulation. Inspect the ducts if you can to see if there is any restriction.

Note that even if you feel air coming out of the ducts, it could be ambient as opposed to cold. The best thing is to measure the air temperature coming out of the ducts. It should be around 20 degrees colder than the ambient air at the intake of the A/C.

No air flow upstairs


Cold air is denser than hot air, so is harder to move. All vents have some mechanism to regulate flow, so close all of the downstairs vents. Check to see if your furnace fan motor has more than one speed, & set it on maximum. Keeping the fan on all the time will help as well. If all else fails, you may need a more powerful fan motor.
