Hi Jaron, I did as the manual said and cleaned all pellets and ash out of the burn chambers and the ash tray. I used the propane torch to heat it up to 200 before letting pellets in and left the primary burn chamber door off until it was up to 400 degrees. It burned great until I opened the vent to cool it down some. I went for a walk and when I came back, 40 min. later, the stove had pretty much gone out. I still had pellets. What can I do about this. Also, I have purchased the vacu stack chimney top and will install that when it comes.
We also hear about a few select folks who need their Wiseway cleaned every week or two. 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.

Hi, I have recently installed a wiseway in my basement. I had to use 51" of horizontal double wall pipe to reach the outside of the house. We now have 16' of vertical pipe but it is not above at the roof of my house. I cannot keep the stove running. It will burn only about 2 hours before it goes out. How can I improve this?

Today I used my wiseway again. heating the pipe took 20 minutes. outside temperature -20C. everything worked well. The only thing I am still trying to control is the constant temperature around 500F. if not to control, then it can rise strongly and I worry about the pipes. They, like on your site, Duravent, are designed to a maximum of 570F.
