There is no lock or latch for the feed door. The door contains a cast iron tab that comes to rest against a small platform on the outside of the stove.

Because the materials used in such manufactured housing are more heat-conductive than those often used in conventional structures. Building codes and insurance companies recommend using a mobile home approved wood stoves.

The manufacturer recommends using only stainless steel triple wall chimney pipe if going through the wall or ceiling and stove pipe when directly coming out of the stove.

answer 2
I installed basically the same stove so I contacted my local building department to find out what they required. I was required for a chimney to have triple walled chimney pipe where it passed through any part of a combustible area such as the ceiling and or roof. In other words I had to run triple walled pipe through the ceiling all the way up until it exited my roof and it had to be a certain height above my roof line. Now below my ceiling I was able to use double walled chimney pipe if I chose to but I ran triple walled interlocking chimney pipe from my Magic Heater on up through the roof and below it I used double walled pipe. Where I live because of so many fire issues our local government agency or building department has a very strict code but at least I know its done properly. I also found out my insurance company could have denied a claim if there ever was an issue if they found out it had not been installed properly. Thus I know its done to code and its safe. Cheers

Question

clearance space issue

I am limited on space, and i notice this stove requires 36 inches, is that 36 inches from the back of the stove to the wall, or 36 inches from the front of stove to the wall. also, if i brick the wall from floor to ceiling with firebrick, can the back of the stove be about 12 to 16 inches away from the wall and still operate safely? this stove will be in a cottage I'm building that will be lived in full time, so safety is an issue more than if it was to just heat a workshop.

The clearance on this stove is measured from the back of the stove to the wall. If you place this next to a completely non-combustible wall, (a brick wall with wood studs behind it would not be acceptable) then the clearance would be 18 inches.

answer 2
This is in my opinion you should check with your local building department to be safe.If your concerned in regards to safety I would pull the required permits and than have it inspected. In doing this your insurance company should not have any issue some companies are becoming very strict in regards to free standing stoves. I have installed one similar but I used a fire proof backer board made out of cement and I used bricks just to be safe and don't forget about the floor depending what you will have. I have mine about 15 inches from the wall and you also need so many inches in front of the stove opening for safety in case a spark fell out while either loading or cleaning the stove. You also have to make sure the chimney if installed properly again your building department will make sure its properly installed also. I am a safety minded person also so I was more than willing to pay for the permits to make sure mine was installed properly. Yes it cost me some money for the permits and the inspection but I know mine is done right. Some people are not willing to pay for the permits but if one wants to be safe such as you or I than please do it. Plus in my area sense its a free standing stove I was not accessed like one would be for a fireplace. Cheers

Staff Answer
To start the fire you would open the stove pipe draft and the spin draft on the ash door. Then use small twigs or crushed paper. Open the feed door and put the paper or twigs on the floor and then top with kindling. Light the paper or twigs and close the door tightly. Close the spin draft and adjust the pipe draft.

Do not allow the ashes to become higher than the grate. Cool completely and vacuum or shovel out the ashes.

answer 2
best way to start coal - clean out bottom ash - lay 5 pounds coal bed - lots of dry kindling wood on top - open bottom vents and go - 1/2 hour later with good draft your firebox gets to 400 F ad more coal - 5 pounds at a time - dont smother your fire

your burn is a function of draft - your draft is a function of chimney height

remove ash from bottom tray

Question

200,000 BTUs?

This pot-belly and some of your other stoves seem to be advertised in a way that could mislead consumers. You rate this stove at 200,000 btus. That's about what a central-heating furnace puts out. From the looks of the stove, I am wondering if you added a zero inadvertently.

But you do this with other stoves too. So I write this as a heads-up. Someone could possibly accuse you of misleading advertising.

This pot belly stove is rated and tested for BTUs by the manufacturer (Vogelzang), it is in fact 200,000 BTUs.

This stove is not air tight, so it does not distribute the heat as well as a furnace would but it is correctly rated.

answer 3
Each fuel whether its propane - natural gas - wood - coal - all have a different BTU rating of their own. You need to understand its not the size of the stove or furnace so much as its the fuel used to produce the heat from it or BTU's. Sure a larger wood stove can produce more BTU's with a larger fire box. Wood has a much higher BTU rating than natural gas which most likely you use in your furnace. A furnace requires a heat exchanger - blower motor - duct wook & a safety housing to cover its works - all things that add to its size. I don't see in my opinion where the 200,000 BTU rating is misleading what so ever. Example - how ever simple it may be - stand in front of a camp fire compared to an electric heater & see which puts out the most heat its just a simple comparison I know. May I suggest looking up BTU ratings for different fuels. This little stove heats my 1,400 sq. foot house & only using my furnace blower to circulate the heat from it. Cheers
