Question about Heating & Cooling

Inside our metters stove where we put the wood I have noticed that there is a gap at the sides of stove. It looks like burning wood or hot coals could fall down there, is that normal.

SOURCE: GE side by side freezer shelves falling down

This appears to be a known problem with at least a couple of GE models (It has been happening in our freezer too). There is a GE Service bulletin at https://customernet.geappliances.com/OTIS/fs/home_images/REF01-10.pdf that seems to describe the fix as them sending out new shelves (and maybe someone to install them?)

Can i hook up a thermostat to my hot blast wood/coal stove to control the heat in my home


Yes, you most certainly can. It depends on how handy you are and to what extent you are willing to go to make this happen. A lot will depend on how comfortable you are with electrical wiring and understanding HVAC controls and their function.

First though, this is the typical way a wood fired forced air furnace is designed to operate. There is a control transformer and relay to control either a combustion air fan (that you do not have) OR a motorized damper for combustion air that you also do not have. The relay closes on a call for heat from the thermostat and opens the damper from its minimum position to allow combustion air into the firebox. As long as there is solid fuels (wood) in the heat chamber, the fresh supply of combustion air will allow the fire to burn or begin to burn very quickly.

As the temperature in the wood furnace plenum increases, the automatic fan control will start the fan and it will run as long as the bonnet temperature is higher than the fan'on' setpoint on the fan control... Now the house warms up and the thermostat satisfies which allows the combustion air damper to spring back to the minimum position, causing the hot fire to die down due to lack of combustion air.

The now smoldering fire will not generate enough heat to keep the fan running too long, so the automatic fan control shuts the fan off until the house cools approximately 2 degrees below thermostat setpoint. The thermostat calls for heat and opens the damper and on goes the cycle....

An important item to remember is that on the automatic fan control, there is a 'limit switch' function. The motorized combustion air damper or the combustion air fan must be wired through the limit switch in case the bonnet temperature exceeds 200 degrees F. This function will then allow the damper to go to the minimum position or the combustion air fan to go off, causing the fire to cool down due to lack of adequate combustion air.

You don't want the thermostat controlling the circulating fan directly, because of two things: 1). If the fire is out, there is no heat to circulate but the thermostat wouldn't know that and it would start and run the fan continuously until a fire is built. and ....
2). You would still be running up and down the stairs monitoring the fires burn rate by opening and closing the lower door manually.

ALL the components you need are readily available from WW Grainger....basically : a fan/limit control
a thermostat
a 110v x 24v 40 va control transformer
a 24v spdt relay
20 ga. two conductor thermostat wire
24v actuator and linkages to mount to the existing combustion air damper. A bit of creativity is required here. I would not recommend retro-fitting a combustion air fan.
14-2 wg romex for wiring the fan control

Again, it depends to what extent you are willing to go to achieve the end result. Will it be exactly like a new system?? No, but it will operate a lot better than that which you describe.

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 do i get even heat thru out the house with a daka wood stove


http://www.hearth.com/talk/categories/main-hearth-forums.4/
You burn wood, and smoke goes up flueway.
You're not running chimney smoke through ductwork so you have a heat exchanger.
What kind of heat exchanger?
probably air since you're running through ductwork?
How much hot air or hot water is coming off heat exchanger?
How big of a space can be heated with that amount of heat?
Is the exchanger located in optimal location?

Considerations.
One room log cabin with fireplace will not stay very warm.
One room house with big wood burning stove in center, with hot flue pipe running across the room and exiting on far wall, will get warm-hot, but will cool off fast.
Why?
Because the BTU output of firewood is much less than electric, coal, oil, or gas.
Otherwise they would have made wood-burning steam locomotives. But the locomotive boiler cannot get hot enough with wood ... the boiler needs coal to produce enough BTUs to boil water fast enough to rotate the turbine and turn the wheels.

Maybe your wood stove output should be measured.
Don't forget a huge percentage of fire heat goes straight up flueway.

Is there a manual for an Acorn ranger wood stove


I haven't found one.... What i did was put a paint-marker line on the closed position.. Get a decent fire going with the door cracked open about 1" (5-10 min) - set both dampers to 1 full-turn open and close the door. Once it starts kicking heat (another 5 to 10 min) reduce it to 1/8 to 1/4 turn open. Seems to burn great like this. I use mine in the shop so i'll also thrown green and punky wood that I won't burn in my house in the belly of this beast and load it up at the end of the day and then close it down completely. It will burn the green / punk wood all night and will still have lots of coals after 12 hours.

How do I use the wood for the smoker


I notice you have an offset smoker. The idea is to get the coals going in the firbox (the smaller circular chamber). The heat from the coals will rise into the main smoking chamber (the large circular chamber) where the food is.

It is difficult to keep your temp set right (about 250) when smoking ribs, brisket or pork **** on a less expensive offset smoker. I don't know what kind you have but it looks like a Brinkman or Charbroil. I'm not being snobby about this as I have a Silver Smoker myself ($185 at Menards).

The solution is to modify it. Search the web for terms like "smoker mod/s". You should be able to find directions on inserting a heat deflection plate, extending your smoker pipe, even adding bricks to the bottom of the smoker chamber to hold the heat. Good luck.
