What is the safest way to add more fuel (wood) to my fire?

  • When you are ready to add more wood to fire, open both the air intake (left-hand side control) and flue damper (right-hand side control) so they are opened 100% (all the way to the right).
  • Turn the door handle to unlock the door and slowly open one door a maximum of 1” and pause for 20-30 seconds to ensure proper drafting and prevent smoke from spilling into your living space.
  • Once you have achieved a proper draft, you can slowly open the doors, one at a time, and add more fuel (wood) to your fire.
