There is black soot all thru my oven and surrounding cupboards in my kitchen.I do not use the self cleaning feature,is this normal for this type of stove?


This is NOT good. Soot comes from something burning, and that's definitely not good. Do you smell smoke or something burning? Is the stove electric or gas? I would have someone pull the stove away from the wall and check to see what is burning. It could be wires, but something is very wrong. Please don't use the stove until you have it checked out, you could start a fire. Really, please have this checked out ASAP!

How do I use a Jotel 1 stove


Google: Jotel 1 stove
This comes up with tons of answers including the instalation and user manual. If you are burning wood be sure it is dry and also pine can cause pitch build up in the flue so keep it clean or it will eventually catch fire and burn itself clean along with the building it is in.

Black smoke coming out oven when cooker and oven on at same time


sounds like the debris from previous cooking is burning. I would suggest cleaning it first. If it's not happening when one or the other is on it might be because what ever is in there is burning at a higher temp. or two it could be that the element is getting too hot and is burning the metal itself. How old is the oven, what kind and cooker? do you mean the stove part? if it's the stove part there might be a leak from the top into the stove -older stoves - the back left burner also got heat from the oven. when cooking you could but a pot or pan on it and not have to turn it on.

Stove burners won't ignoite


remove a burner cover and while observing the burner turn on the ignitor listen to it click for that burner ; you should see a tiny lightning bolt like flash if you do not tun off the burner clean the area and, try again oil and grease coat the burner gas plate and isolates the ground that the spark needs to be able to "jump" to

Water and debris in flue liner of Jotul Stove


Hi,
You should have a swept T connector at the base, with the sweep going from the stove upwards, but the other end of the T going into a removable cap - or very short length of pipe. If you only have a standard bend - replace it with the T.

This is actually normal for wood burners. In an unlined chimney, the lighter "tar" fractions from the wood would soak into the brickwork, and show through the wall in a few years. In a lined system - they have to go somewhere, and usually condense inside the flue - running back down to the base.
The "chinese hat" style cap is actually very good for everything except sideways hail.

Sorry - but it's the nature of the fuel. It is possible to use a clay based absorbent at the base - Cat litter is actually fine.

There is a vent pipe for the oven in the back usually just under the left rear burner, it is normal too get hot air there, if your drip pans are all solid you might want too change too pans that have holes in the center it should allow the top too breath a little better.
