minutes before opening the fuel door.
3. Excess creosote will not only restrict your draft but it
will create a risk of a creosote fire. Strictly adhere to
maintenance requirements as outlined in this man-
ual. If excess creosote has built up on the inside of
the firebox sides and door, burn a small hot fire at in-
tervals that are more frequent with start-up control
open and primary air control on high for a few min-
4. Deposits may have built up in the chimney and are

problems -- If installing into a larger flue, it
may be necessary to use a full-length liner to
achieve adequate draft for the appliance. A draft
gauge should read a minimum of .05" w.c.
(inches water column) not to exceed .07" w.c.
for optimum performance (See Draft Require-
ments, page 5).
