General Discussion / Re: Water Jacket
April 15, 2019, 02:29:37 pm
1: Without consulting a mechanical engineer, I would say possibly 5,000 BTU out of 40,000 gets drawn out while the water is still cold. As the water heats up the jackets will draw less BTUs.

2: You can use 3 water jackets, we have 2 installed as shown in the attached picture.

3: I don't know what reference you are referring to but in the picture we are using thermal convection, the two jackets heat up our 20 gallon tank in a couple hours.

4: If you have the ability to create a custom jacket, go for it!

Sounds like it will work great! Go straight up off the top as high as you can. Then for every two horizontal feet, put eight vertical feet on top. 30 degree elbow would probably just count as part of the straight pipe.

The initial burning torch will induce a draft to go up the pipe. Smoke will follow the easiest way up and so as long as pellets are blocking the hopper run then the smoke will continue going up the flue and out. Combustion needs air and fuel so the burning pellets won't travel up into the hopper since gaskets around the lids prevent air from seeping in from that direction.

Are you using the torch initially until it gets to 450 - 500? You can also look into getting a 4" Vacu-Stack, that decreases downdrafts caused by wind.
We also hear about a few select folks who need their Wiseway cleaned every week or two. :o ??? This all due to the quality of the pellets bought. Your cheaper pellets will be poorly compressed so they do not providing enough time in the burn chamber before being blown away by the draft and deposited. Cheaper pellets are also full of nonburnable material and will fill up any pellet stove with dust. For example "Rural King" pellets for $4/bag are probably not a good choice whereas a local brand to you that costs $5/bag will not cause the trouble you see.

This is a draw issue.
Your draft is being affected by not being above your roof line. It is not able to keep a draft induced without this.
Please send pictures!

You get back smoke because your flue is not tall enough. Remove that last 45 degrees facing down. This setup will lose draw on occasion. Thanks for posting!!

Congratulations on your new Wiseway!

I don't know what door your are talking about. Can you post some pictures of your mods?

Are you above your roof line? Probably not the pellets, it is a draft issue!
General Discussion / Where is the Wiseway manufactured?
February 20, 2019, 12:24:22 pm
The Wiseway was designed, engineered and developed in Oregon, USA and is now backed by American customer service at one of the oldest American stove manufacturers, US Stove Company. They are manufactured in China.
Some pellets are horrible for ash deposits. In normal cases, ash does build up in the tubes and it needs to be cleaned. Do this once a year, or when you notice cooler temperature. You will need to take the flu off and go in from the top with an ash vacuum and try to knock it all out, then come in from the burn chamber area to get everything left over.
No, electric heat guns simply do not get hot enough.

Auto-ignite propane torches are sold everywhere and are very inexpensive. During startup of the stove that the propane torch should be used to heat up the stove pipe before igniting the pellets in order to initiate a good draft.

This is a draft issue.

Keep damper shut and keep torch burning on pellets until it gets up to 400 or so. Keep the lid off where the torch goes for 30 minutes. If the stove doesn't take off then your roof could be affecting the draft, in this case you could put another 2' of pipe on it.
No 8" pipe.

A 6" chimney is not ideal either as this stove does not produce enough combustion to sufficiently heat the air volume in a large pipe. To generate a good draft, the initial torch burn to get it started would be too much. It would be best to run 4" pipe inside your current chimney.
The fresh air intake port is on the back of the stove. The intake connects to the outside wall and needs to be within 3'. The fresh air intake port has a 3" diameter.

Fresh air intake allows the stove to run properly.
