Open the fuel door and slide the primary air-control lever to the right. The lever is located on the bottom right-hand side of the stove and controls the amount of air allowed into the stove. Move it to the right to increase burn rate and to the left to decrease it. Ensure ventilation of the stove to the outside is open.
Place five or six pieces of loosely crumpled newspaper into the stove. Position a small amount of dry kindling on top of the newspaper, then more newspaper on top of the kindling. Light the bottom newspaper first, and once it has caught fire, light the top newspaper.
Close the fuel door once the fire has begun, then reopen to add larger logs once the kindling is burning. Continue to add logs as needed.
- Select a location for the stove that is centrally located, if possible, and has proper air ventilation and circulation.
- Obtain proper paperwork and permits for the installation of your stove.
- Ventilate your house during the first few burns in your stove. The paint on the stove needs to cure, and it emits nontoxic odors as that happens.
- Crack a window as you try to light the stove if your house is well-insulated and you have trouble getting drafts up the chimney.
