Possible Cause
Cold Air Blockage - burn a piece of newspaper to
establish a draft.
By-pass is Closed - Open the by-pass by pulling the
ring above the door all the way out.
Close the doors - if the flame is not getting enough air,
first make sure the air control is open (all the way left). If
additional air is needed, a small crack in the door is all
that is needed.
Cold Air Blockage - burn a piece of newspaper to
establish a draft.
Not enough starter paper - use additional newspaper if
necessary.
By-pass is Closed - Open the by-pass by pulling the
ring above the door all the way out.
Not enough air - first make sure the air control is open
(all the way left). If additional air is needed, a small crack
in the door is all that is needed.
By-Pass is Closed - Open the by-pass (the ring above
the doors) using gloves or a tool before opening the
door.
Insufficient Draft - Chimney height and outside
conditions can negatively affect draft. In these cases a
small amount of smoke may enter the home. Adding
more pipe or a draft-inducing cap may help.
Wood is Wet - see the section "Selecting Wood" on
page 12 for details on wood.
Insufficient Draft - Chimney height and outside
conditions can negatively affect draft. In these cases
the fire may burn slowly. Adding more pipe or a draft-
inducing cap may help.
Air Control is Not Wide Open - Make sure the air control
is all the way to the left. Slide the control back and forth
rapidly to insure the control is not stuck.
Fireplace is Not Up to Temperature - This is normal.
The blower will come on when the fireplace is hot -
usually 15 to 30 minutes.
Electricity is Cut to the Blower - Check the household
breaker or fuse to make sure it is operable.
This is Normal - The air leading into the firebox comes
from the exterior. In some cases this air comes into the
firebox and exits up the chimney. This will not damage
the fireplace nor cool the home much.
The doors are not sealing - See the section "Check the
Door Seal, Adjust if Necessary" on page 16 for details.
