Wow! Amazing that you have one too, and know how to do this. I'm not feeling well right now and have actually stopped using the stove because of the smoke.

EDITING NOW: Since this is a rental and the owner does most of the handyman work, I'm going to let him clean it out someday. I already gave away all my wood and have been using a propane forced air heater in this mobile home. I had noticed the bolts on top but don't have tools and thought it should be working without taking it apart. I guess that's why they changed up the model and made it easier to open.

I'm so glad you responded to this and solved my mystery. I might have the guy whom I gave the wood to give it a go, but he is a little slow.

Thanks so much.

So I'm back again this year with the same stove. It isn't getting any air without propping it open, and then I get smoke in the house. Landlord cleaned pipe, replaced parts on roof, and says it is well underneath of the mobile home. I'm thinking it's not well under the mobile home. Any suggestions for the landlord?

Well I hope someone sees this. I used the stove last year with the door open. Now I want to try again but can't remember which way to move the lever on the bottom that supposedly lets air in. Has anyone found any more information on this? I must have seen a drawing somewhere that showed open and closed but I can't find one.

I've never had to gout. Mostly hear about men that have it. But I've had a huge more than an inch gallstone for many years. It never bothered me until this year, supposedly. I had vomiting and diarrhea and they were ruling things out and did a scan and decided it was the gallstone blocking a duct.  I'm not sure if that was it or not. Of course they want to yank your gallbladder out right away. I wasn't having it. I also had two ear infections and decided to go ahead with the anabiotic's for that. So after that all my symptoms got better and I went back to having occasional heartburn. Don't really feel like eating like I was eating last year though.

I listened to doctors online and did the research on the gallbladder. The best information I found was at gallbladderattackcom.  Learned the amount of food you eat in one setting has a lot to do with problems. Also learned that it's not the fat it's the carbs. I basically eat whatever I want. A few months ago a cheeseburger would make me run to the bathroom. But not anymore.  

My blood type is A+ but I don't believe in going by that.  I do think everybody's body uses food differently and that no one diet is good for everyone. See  http://www.mensahmedical.com/what-are-biochemical-imbalances/ They've even changed their mind that kale is good for every cancer patient.

Next month I'm having blood work to show how my body works with methylation, etc. The book, "Nutrient Power" by William Walsh explains about how they use testing to formulate a nutritional supplement that is uniquely for you regardless of your blood type.

I'm going to talk to a G.I. specialist in a few weeks. They can snatch stones that are caught in ducts with something that reminds me of those cranes in the toy boxes.  Mine is still in the gallbladder but I thought I'd ask about it anyway. I've heard they can laser them (or use ultrasound but I think that's old-fashioned now). You'd think that if my duct were blocked I wouldn't be functioning as well as I am. I'm taking NOW brand super enzymes with ox bile and Hcl but I don't think that's the only thing my body is using. https://www.swansonvitamins.com/now-foods-super-enzymes-180-caps?otherSize=NWF099&DFA=1&UTM_Medium=Shopping&UTM_Source=GOOGLE&UTM_Campaign=SWAN_National_Gen_Shopping_Null_Null_All+Products+4055-01+Digestive+Health+and+Fiber&UTM_Content=PRODUCT+GROUP&SourceCode=INTL4055&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIvfOU0Iuz1wIVSmx-Ch3l9AIyEAQYASABEgJ5D_D_BwE

Thanks for your help.

Yes,  this is the manual I have and have read. The landlord installed the stove according to the instructions. The door fits snugly onto the box. I use the fan and it doesn't affect the fire.  I've talked to Heatilator and they suggested talking to a local supplier. No one sells theses stoves anymore. I'm planning on going into a store anyway just to talk. I have a propane heater also. I'm just trying to save the cost of propane. Thanks again for all your work.

For liability reasons, speak to your landlord before trying to figure it out on your own. I'm sure he/she will be glad you asked and glad to instruct. Good luck.


I have but in the meantime he's been in a bad car accident.  He cleaned everything really well and put new parts on the top.  Also he lives six hours away.

That's a good answer. I will try to investigate it. I emailed one store and they were no help. I'll try to visit a local store and see if they know anything.

Does it look like air enters the top of the door and drops down along the door, or across the fire for more draft?


It looks like air goes into the door from all sides even the bottom. But when it's closed all of those holes are on the outside of the stove. It looks like Like a closed system on the outside of the box.
