Great information for us coal junkies in this posting. Please don't forget to update the posting when you discover how you finally solved this issue. Thanks, Lisa

While I'm waiting for Poconoeagle to get out of bed and got over here to look at my stove situation, :) , I'll try to recap that answer to Richard post I tried 5 times yesterday.

The fireplace provides the chimney for the stove. There is no basement. The cottage is up on stone piers, wind blowing clear through except for the plumbing I've enclosed. I crawled around under there and saw no clean out. I did see a red/black/yellow snake. That's it for crawling around.

Sweep said all was sealed up top when he finished a couple of months ago. I'll ask him about methods and materials.

If I can squeeze behind the stove to cram fiberglass insulation up the chimney I will. Thanks for the tip.

It burned better last night -- it was cold! I got a high reading at the top of the stove of 275, which isn't enough to bake cookies. I'm trying to remember which trunk my down vests are packed in.

Hope YOU ALL are warm :shifty:

How tall is that chimney?
If you have 15 ft you should be good to go.
Liner might have got a squish in it?
If you can drop a light on a cord down to visually confirm...
The pipe is clear that eliminate one possibility.

Hey Lola,
Congrats! Hope you're warming up. I got my Kodiak fired up today also and its burning well so far.
Really nice of Poconoeagle to help out.
For those that are following you, what was the issue?
Pocono Pines is nice. Are you in one of those older homes on the "main drag" that I like so much, with the porches and stone?
We're sorta neighbors.....I'm in Bear Creek, go to Blakeslee, make a right.

Lissen up, peopos!
Dr. Poconoeagle has blessed this stove! (What an incredibly kind guy to arrive on the scene.)
Two major contributors to my long, whining, stove complaints:
1. Me. I was too timid and ladylike in my ash shaking. If I saw one or two live coals drop, I'd cease disturbing the fire. Soooo, ash was choking the draft. My poking technique was refined, as well.
2. The baro is set right next to the stove, but should be a pipe's length, say 18 " away from the stove body. That's why I always had to wrap it in foil. And the Sweep had not screwed the pipes together, just nested them--not good for the occasional coal explosion...(or for my three day headache.)
I am pleased to say that the brownies I put on at 400 will be done shortly. All are invited, but please bring milk.

Only if you made them with walnuts. You can't make good brownies without Walnuts. And yes, a tall ice-cold glass of milk. :D :D
