In the meantime does anyone know what the two screws would be for just on top of the door? Looks like maybe to mount some kind of plenum?

Same as my unit, Keystoker 90/105 Direct Vent. see my profile pic for setup I have in basement with top heat venting up into my duct work. Steel pipe after the elbow joint leads to an inline fan that then leads to flexible duct tubes (?) that feed into floor vents on 1st floor.

great set up Randy, I like the flu out the window (talk about easy peasy set up) :lol:

How often do you have to dump the ash pan? how large is the house your heating? how many fans/blowers do you have running in total? thanks for the great pics!

The stove is equipped with a safety fume switch. If hot coal gases are not vented outdoors, the safety switch will trip out on reset, which will shut off stoker unit. The fire will go out and cannot be restarted until reset button on safety switch cools down. Then the button must be manually reset. If safety switch trips out frequently, it may caused by:
1. Restricted or blocked vent tube between stove and exhaust fan. SOLUTION: Pull power plug from receptacle, remove ash pan, and using brush supplied with stove, reach brush into exhaust pipe. Move brush in a circular motion to clean pipe and exhaust area. Plug power cord back in.
2. Restrict or blocked exhaust pipe from stove to outside of home. SOLUTION: Clean exhaust pipe.
3. Accumulation of dust on exhaust fan blade. SOLUTION: remove screws on motor mounting bracket and thoroughly clean fan blades on exhaust motor.
4. Extreme windy conditions outside of home blowing against exhaust air.
5. Safety switch defective. SOLUTION: Replace safety switch

Field Controls, WMO-1 Blocked Vent Switch

I believe it is something you have to add to the Keystoker. I have to add it to mine.
