Optional Blower Installation

A blower, catalog number 71000, can be installed on the stove

to improve hot air distribution throughout the room.

To install the blower:

1. Remove all the contents from the blower box. Included

with the blower should be a blower speed control.

2. Remove the screws in the round knock-out plate on the

back of the stove. Bend the knock-out plate back and forth
until it can be removed.

3. Mount the blower as shown below. Make sure the cord is

at the bottom when mounted and that it does not touch the
stove anywhere. Remove the four screws from the back of
the stove. Use one of the four screws with a washer on it
and attach the blower through one of the four mounting
legs on the blower housing. Check to make sure that the
fan blade does not touch the large hole in the rear heat-
shield. (Spin it to check all directions). Finish attaching
the blower with the other three screws. Tighten the screws
moderately tight but do not over tighten as you may strip
the holes out.

4. Plug in the fan speed control into the nearest outlet, then

plug the blower cord into the speed control. Do not route

the fan power cord under the stove or allow it to come in

contact with any surface of the stove. Read the section

Starting and Maintaining a Fire for proper fan operating

instructions on Page 15.

WARNING: In the event that you remove the blower for

any reason, make sure a cover plate (available from

Lennox Hearth Products) is installed before using the

heater. Excessive rear wall temperatures will result

if the stove is burned without the cover plate. Note:

The cover plate is not necessary if a blower has never

been installed because a knock-out will be in place

to act as the cover.

Operating Hints

1. Burn only dry, well-seasoned wood for maximum heat

output. In some states it is illegal to burn wet wood or

anything other than clean, dry wood products.

2. Your stove is designed to operate with the door closed!

Operate only with the door shut tightly at all times except

when loading wood.

3. DO NOT hit or move the baffle brick while loading wood.

Occasionally check the baffle. Make sure the insulating

blanket is always flush with the front of the baffle brick.

Loading oversized logs may dislodge the baffle bricks.



BUSTION FLASH!! (Ignition of hot volatile gases as the

door is opened).

5. Feeding excessive amounts of fuel to the stove should be

avoided. It is important to supply it with sufficient draft and

fuel to maintain a moderately hot fire. If, during overnight

burns, heavy creosote deposits develop inside your stove

and on the door, the draft is set too low - review your

burning habits!


The blower must be plugged directly into a properly

grounded three-prong receptacle, 10 VAC, 60 Hz, single

phase. Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from

this plug. Do not route power cord under or in front of


Installation must be in accordance with National Elec-

trical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 - latest edition. In Canada,

the current CSA C-1 Canadian Electrical Code - latest


DANGER: Disconnect power before servicing blower.


Be careful not to abuse door assembly by striking or

slamming it. If the door assembly or glass is broken or

damaged, they must be replaced with factory original

parts before heater can be safely operated. Use only

components provided by the manufacturer as replace-

ment parts.
