One Side Blows Cooler Air

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

Pioneer tv One side of the top blows noticeably cooler air (Not cold) than the other the other side, Is this normal? Installed stove late last week, so far so good. :D I read the site here since last spring and that influenced my purchase of the leisure line brand. It seems like I should have more to do with the stove. :)

On mine from checking the very top of the stove with my thermometer I have a temp of 116* on the right and 135* on the left so it seems like a normal thing.

Funny this should come up. My wife and I just noticed this the other day. The right side is cooler than the left. I was wondering if something was clogged up.

The blower is probably offset on the back, depending on the air flow around the stove, it could be cooler in different spots when it comes out the front.

This is normal. The blower is on the right side so the right side is always a bit cooler.
