In the pages that follow, we will give you advice on wood heating and controlled combustion as well as technical specifications regarding installation, operation and maintenance of the model you have chosen.
The chimney is the engine that drives the wood-heating system. Use a chimney that is UL-listed, with an inner diameter to match the stove’s outlet collar (6” for all Drolet wood stoves); Try to run the chimney inside the building for as much length as you can. A tall and warm chimney will produce a good draft;...
Figure 1: HT-2000 Pedestal Installation : 1. Remove all bricks and insulations in the appliance. 2. Slowly, lay down the stove on his back. 3. Install legs or the pedestal with the supplied nuts and bolts. Stand up the stove and place it with the required clearances.
BRICKS AND INSULATION INSTALLATION (HT-1600) 1. Remove from the stove all bricks and insulation. 2. Install all side bricks (11 x 4 1/2" x 9" & 1 x 4 ½” x 8 3/16") as shown in drawing below. 3. Install the back bricks (6 x 4 1/2" x 9") 4.
BRICK AND INSULATION INSTALLATION (HT-2000) The stove is normally supplied with secondary air tubes in position. To install the baffle bricks and white ceramic insulation, it’s necessary to remove the two front secondary air tubes. First place only one baffle brick and one white ceramic insulation. Use the same method to put the other baffle brick and insulation.
AIR TUBES INSTALLATION (HT-2000): The secondary air tubes are painted different colours . The back tube is yellow, the middle on is red and the front is unpainted. Before installing, make sure the locating holes in the tubes (holes near one end of the tube) are on the left side. Insert one tube in the right side air channel and slide it to the right as much as possible.
DOOR ADJUSTMENT In order for your stove to operate properly, the door should be adjusted periodically to provide an air tight fit. To adjust: • Remove the lock pin (spring pin) by pulling and turning it using pliers ("wise grip") •...
THE BENEFITS OF INSTALLING A BLOWER A blower can be installed at the back of your DROLET stove. This option is necessary if you wish to redistribute into a room the heat trapped at the back of your stove. By forcing hot air toward the front, the blower enables you to extend the radiation power of your stove.
REQUIRED POSITIONING THE STOVE It is very important to position the wood stove as close as possible to the chimney, and in an area that will favour the most efficient heat distribution possible throughout the house. The stove must therefore be installed in the room where the most time is spent, and in the most spacious room possible.
Your wood stove should be placed on a non-combustible surface. The floor protector should be under the stove, eighteen inches beyond the front and eight inches beyond each side of the fuel loading and ash removal opening. If there is a horizontal section of chimney connector, the floor protector should go under it and two inches beyond each side.
CLEARANCES It is of utmost importance that the clearances to combustible material be scrupulously respected upon installation of the stove you have selected. Refer to the tables below : Figure 6: Clearances to combustibles CANADA Model HT-1600 15/12 HT-2000 19/10...
3" (76 mm) between the top of the shield and the ceiling must be respected to allow vertical air circulation behind the shield. The shield must extend 20" (500 mm) above the stove top and 18" (450mm) to each side of the stove.
CHIMNEY Your wood stove may be hooked up with a factory built or masonry chimney. If you are using a factory built chimney, it must comply with UL 103 or ULC S629 standards; therefore it must be a Type HT (2100°F). It is extremely important that it be installed according to the manufacturer's specifications.
IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU USE DRY WOOD ONLY IN YOUR WOOD STOVE. The wood must have dried for 9 to 15 months, such that the humidity content (in weight) is reduced below 20% of the weight of the log. It is very important to keep in mind that even if the wood has been cut since one, two or even more years, it is not necessarily dry, if it has been stored in poor conditions;...
Make sure that there’s enough air circulation while curing the stove. The odours could be smelled during the 3 or 4 first fires. Never start your stove outside. You will not be able to see if you are over heating.
IS HAPPENING EADJUST THE AIR INTAKE CONTROL AT A LOWER SETTING • T HE INSTALLATION OF A LOG CRADLE IS NOT RECOMMENDED IN YOUR DROLET WOOD STOVE • N EVER PUT WOOD ABOVE THE FIREBRICK LINING OF THE FIREBOX CREOSOTE FORMATION AND NEED FOR REMOVAL When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapours, which combine with expelled moisture to form creosote.
ASH DISPOSAL Ashes should be removed from the stove every few days or when ashes get to 2 to 3 inches deep. Always empty the stove when it is cold, such as in the morning. Always dispose of ashes in a metal container with a tight fitting lid. Place this container on a non combustible floor or on the ground, well away from all combustible materials, pending final disposal.
