Dovre is actually an old gas stove manufactured by what is now Hearth and Home Technologies. This is a discontinued model. visit www.quadrafire.com for technical support. If they won't or can't help you let me know I think I have the older tech manuals somewhere.

Is the monitor 422 heater considered a direct vent wall heater


Yes, the Monitor 422 heater is direct vent type.

You must install the supplied double-walled vent tube between the heater and outdoors. Failure to properly install the vent tube will quickly deplete oxygen from the space it is operating in. That is a potentially deadly situation.

The pipe is special. The inner pipe is for hot exhaust gasses to be sent outside and the outer walled pipe is for fresh combustion air to be brought into the heater. This set up is why the heater does not create drafts in the home.

I boughta vermont castings model # 2610 cast iron radiance franklin stove it came w/pipes .............is it a direct vent or a b vent..reason why i am asking is he gave me a "t" pipe w/ screen...


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.

I have a laser 73 in a garage w/ concrete walls w/ no insulation on the walls in Willow, Alaska. This is a cabin for us so we keep this on 50 degrees most of the time. This unit is oversized for the space...


Make sure that the flue pipe is angled down outside. I can't remember the angle they recommend, but I think it should slope down about 1/2" for 12" of horizontal run. Also the Laser's are very efficient resulting in some of the flue gas condensing. This will leave some build up behind that reminds me of the stuff you find on a car battery terminal. Let me know if this helps so I can give you more suggestions if necessary.

Should the vent pipe be hot


If it is a single wall vent pipe and it goes into a masonary chimney that
has double wall pipe, you can expect the temperature to be over 120deg.

If it is double wall vent pipe all the way to the roof, I would say that
the pipe might be under 100 deg. I guess I would have to no what type
of vent config you have.

If you think that it is way hotter than you can recall in the past, if it has a induced draft blower, make sure it is operating. You could take the vent connection apart at the furnace and make sure it is not plugged.

If you have a water heater tied in with the furnace vent. You could take
a lighter or a match and put the flame near the water heater vent, if it
blows out than you have a problem with your vent system.

Things that could cause this is another fan operating, a gas or wood
burning stove or an attic fan. Could also be due to the chimney vent
not being above the roof line and on a windy day could cause
backdraft.

Vent free wall heater starves for gas


The 3/4 pipe will provide enough gas provided that it does not have a lot of elbows in the run. The more elbows you have, the less gas you have at the end of the run.

I recommend that you call the company which provides you with the gas and have them come out and look at your problem. They will be able to analyze your situatioin and make a recommendation to you. This is a free service. Good luck with it.

Need to move the unit by dismantling


Remove the two screws on the side trim. Remove the two top screws from the filter panel. Reach behind the heater and pull the sock down on the vent pipe. unclip the two clamps holding the vent pipe together. Remove the plastic elbow off of the vent termination. Slide the heater to the left to slide the vent pipe off of the vent termination. Remove the gas line after shutting the gas off.

Moved Laser 73 to differant building, need template for flue pipe


the cardboard is 28" wide and 21.5" high . Mark 8 1/8" up from bottom and 11 1/2" from the right side. This is the pivot point of the 2 holes on the card board template. from this pivot point you measure out 4 1/2 " anywhere from 12 o'clock to 3 o' clock position is where the center of your hole will start. MIne is in for 6 years and the pipes are really stuck together. I left it in for fear of hurting the vent pipe. that is the pipe in a pipe through the wall,may leak if the elbow from the heater is forced out. They say using liqued wrench helps if you give it 1/2 hour I decided to let it in. dave

Hi ejohn,

There is no valuable, practical adjustment for the flame on a Toyo Stove. A yellow flame can be caused by several things. How old is the stove? When was the last tune-up? A dirty sooty carboned up stove will have a yellow flame. A breach in the flue pipe will cause a yellow flame. An incorrect installation of the flue and exhaust hoses/metal exhaust elbow will cause a yellow flame. In the last scenario, the intake will be hooked to the exhaust and the exhaust will be hooked to the intake ports of the flue pipe. A malfunctioning fuel pump can also cause a yellow flame. The wrong fuel can cause a yellow flame, too. Most likely, your stove is dirty and needs a tuneup. It should have a bright blue flame if it is clean, and operating correctly. You can download a manual at REE, Anchorage through a Google search. If you want a more detailed diagoses, write back and give me more detail and I can help you further. Toyotech

no, because the whole combustion chamber and piping is a closed system with the exception of the intake and exhaust which is a double walled pipe. you might check the tightness of your K-1 fuel line or look for leaks under the filter compartment where the solenoid pump is located. the fuel goes into the chamber via a small copper line with a silicone gasket under the gland nut.
