pretty looking

5 years ago

We purchased this Jotul , model F500 in May. it is our only source of heat, replacing our pellet stove. When fire on smart it is OK, when on on, it stinks to high heaven. In this very cold weather we must keep it on on. smart isn't heating enough. We ran stove on high as I was told by installers this would to get rid of the smell , it didn't work. Don't know what else to do , SMELL IS NOT GOING AWAY !!! Need HELP

Stove expert replied: Is there enough air in the room for this size stove? Refer to pages 23 - 25 of the manual for fuel type and how to operate the stove effectively. Go back to the supplier for further assistance if the stove fails to work as expected, they may be able to assist you further as they should know the products well.
