Many times, the fan blades themselves are the cause of lowered air flow. Think of the blades edges as though they were the cutting edges of a knife. You know a sharp knife cuts its products better than a dull knife....transfer that concept to airflow. A clean blade is sharper and slices through the air much better than a thick edged dirty and dull fan blade. I've seen extreme cases where the edges were 1/8" thick and the area between the blades nearly filled with lint, dust, dog hair and the like.

Service the blower blade first and while removed inspect the inside of the stove in front of the fan with a flashlight and small mirror. That will tell you if additional cleaning is required. If your motor is a cheap little 'shaded pole' motor, it could just be dragging and operating at a lower rpm than designed, delivering less airflow. If so, it may have to be replaced. There are no oil ports on most of these small motors.

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.

We do not seem to be getting as much heat from the stove this year as last year. The stove makes a loud clanking sound when it heats up and cools down. It is a regency wood stove Model R3/R9/RA3. There...


That stove has a metal baffle on top of an air tube that can warp with age. It might be changing shape as it heats up and making your sound. If this is the case it can block the path for the stove pipe and cause performance issues. The baffle plate and insulating blanket on top can be easily replaced.

We have a pellet stove -seems to be working ok except that we have a smell of smoke like that of having a fireplace. We think everything is sealed correctly. Any suggestions?


From what I have read on these things, never had one, but they have 2 fans, maybe one, plus an auger and thermostat. The one fan would **** fresh air in from the room to fuel the fire, while the other fan would blow the heat back out from a sealed area. The auger spins constantly, slow, dropping pellets on the fire determined by the thermostat. If this is right and relates to your stove, I can see where the smell of smoke would come from. The second fan is pulling in smoke from the fire. Check the gaskets in that area. I was wondering if it wasn't just the new stove smell you were getting?

I need to wire a 24 volt double pole double throw relay to operate a fan in a furnace parrell with a wood stove.


Your problem has really got me interested in what you are attempting to do. So are you looking to diable the FAU while the wood stove is heating or activate the blower motor for the FAU when the wood stove is hot?
