Offset of verticle stove pipe between stoveand chimney

The wood burning stove is connected to the chimney using four ft.of double wall and two 90 degree double wall elbows at the chimney which travels another 12 feet through the roof This oause ffset is required to aligne the stove with the cgimney. It is not possible to reposition either stove or chimney.

the problem Is that the fire is hard to start and smokes badly until the fire and stove are hot. My question is thie cause due to this pipe installation or is there another reason? If this is the problem would replaceing the two 90 degree elbows with two 45 degree elbows improve the performance? If this is the solution how is it accomplished?

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.

Why does my blazeking wood burning stove get creasote in the fire box and how do i get it out?


Hi Darlene,
Creosote consists of combustion byproducts,[smoke] that gradually builds up in the stove & chimney.MOISTURE in the wood,and slow burning greatly increase build-up. 1/4 '' of creosote is considered a hazard. Consult a professional chimney sweep,then burn only 'seasoned' dry hardwood,and when you start or re-kindle the fire,burn it hot enough to thoroughly heat the flue; this will draw the smoke up the chimney faster,decreasing the time build-up can occur. Stay Warm!

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

I'm installing a wood stove insert with a 6" flu. Can I use a 5" or 5.5" chimney liner and be ok? Thanks in advance. Jacob Ullucci


If the stove exhaust pipe is 6", you need to have a minimum of 6" all the way up your chimney. If you use a smaller pipe you will limit your flow, which causes excess cooling and crystalizing of smoke creating more creosote, and more of a chance for chimney fire. The perfect solution would be to run a 6" liner down your chimney, and connect it right to the top of your insert. Make sure you install a top plate at the top of the chimney to insure pieces don't fall outside the liner. Lastly install a stainless steel cap to keep any animals out.

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.

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.

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.
