Over-Firing Danger

If a stove is being run too hot it can damage the unit, and this damage would not normally be covered under warranty.
It can also be very dangerous. Indications of over firing include:

  • The stove could have warped surfaces on the top or sides.

  • The impingement plate could be badly warped or burned away.

  • The painted surfaces of the stove could have an ash white color in effected areas.

  • The brick retainers could be warped or burned away.

  • Bricks could be worn away or broken.If equipped with a catalyst, it could be badly worn out or broken.

  • In extreme cases the stove hull could split, usually where brick retainers are welded in, or around the corners of the doors.

  • The flue pipe would usually have a red glow while in operation, from too much heat.
