Any one with a wood stove??

We have a Brass Flame KS-805, we have no owners manual. we are wondering how to work this thing, without burning down our house.

Make sure you put the fuel inside the stove before igniting it...

Place smaller pieces of wooden material inside and then ignite.

Add larger pieces as flames grow.

First off you need something non-combustible beneath it and behind it...

Is that single wall pipe? If so, how is it run through the ceiling?

First things first...get the chimney cleaned and inspected. Burn dry wood.

run a correctly sized chimney brush down the stovepipe first. Get a magnetic thermometer to keep on the pipe so that you can see if you are getting it too hot. Looks like single wall pipe to me, old school style. I heat 100% with wood in my house, the main house has three wood stoves so we go through a lot of wood. But it is worth it to me, the atmosphere and we do about half of the cooking on it as well.

UHHHH I dunno if that is a single wall pipe it goes up to the ceiling then there is a big black box and it comes out thru the roof.

Its on concrete blocks, the stove is definatly not new to the house. It has been here a while.

We have a fire going in it now, but when we close the door the fire goes out.

Open the vent on front of the door

There should be a "draft" on the stove somewhere to let air in

look's like single wall till the top and then it step's to triple wall ?

I would slide a piece of sheet metal under it to act as a fire barrier then build a brick/stone pad for it to sit on. The air gap behind it look's to be 6+ inch's but you should have some sort of fire barrier there as well.

First and fore most go get a temperature gauge for the pipe ! Home depot, Lowe's Tractor supply all sell them. I usually buy 2 each year and put them in 2 separate spot's. one WILL eventually go bad if you get it hot enough, wich we've all done.

If it's going out, look for a vent and open it ?
For wood you should have a damper in the Flu above the stove.
You can leave the vent open to get air for the fire to burn and close the damper so it doesn't draw a huge draft and burn to fast.

pictures are deceiving, not sure how much space is behind that thing...i'd shoot for at least 18 inches between it and the wall...my stove is a different set up, but i know with a bigger blower, the heat output literally quadrupled. so, if you can get some kind of a fan/blower to move air ACROSS that thing, not THROUGH it, you will be light years ahead of the game. if the fire is going out when you shut the door, there is a flue somewhere in the chimney, if its not within a few feet of the stove, thats probably not the problem. there may be a cap or obstruction on/in the chimney as well. if the stove isn't smoking up your house, neither of these is likely the problem. (think engine here; air goes in at the door or carb. burns in the stove or cylinder, exits through the chimney or exhaust.)
there is probably some kind of "valve" on the doors, usually a big metal knob on a screw that you can turn out to open it, this is called a damper, and it basically acts as the throttle butterfly. open it, and fire should burn.

Hopefully you figured out how to open the vent that allows the stove to pull air in... you will also need to figure out a way for air to get into your house to be sucked into the stove. I have a 2" pipe that runs through the basement wall underground about 50 feet or so until it comes up above ground for a vent to allow air into the house.

200* to a max of about 400* is optimal IF it is single wall. This would be within about 2 to 3 feet up the pipe from the stove.

Yes, we figured out the vent, it was a little okay alot rusty, took some wrenching to get it moving. There is a window right behind the unit so we can crack that for air. we dont have a basement... this is california. We barely get below freezing.

Sound good, just watch the stovepipe temps they can go up in just a few minutes several hundred degrees.

i hope you have good insurance , most states require 48" away from any window , and so many inches from any combustible such as a wall

You won't need to use it much since you have Mexican pavers on the floor and palm trees out the window.

Oh those palm trees are gone, they were way to close to the house. And were in Fallbrook, it gets pretty cold here. not freezing but into the low 30's during the winter.

What, not familiar with the Top-Down burn tech?

The way I build a fire, you dont have to add more fuel for hours.

Minimum distance for the rear is 9" so your good to go on that. Minimum clearence for a double wall non air cooled pipe is 18". The tile underneath needs to be 3/8th" thick and extend atleast 16" in front of the stove
