21 ENGLI S H 1 . 3 Be sure to note the build-up of flue gases under unfavourable weather conditions (Weather inversion) and the flue draft behaviour. If too little air for combustion is taken in, this can lead to fumes in the room in which the appliance is located, or result in the escape of flue gases. In addition, damaging deposits can be formed in the appliance and in the chimney. In the event of the escape of fumes, let the fire go out and check that all the air inlet openings are unobstructed and that the flue gas ducting and flue are clean. In case of doubt, advise a registered...

ENGLI S H 22 I N F O R MAT I O N O N H E AT I N G P R ACT I C E SUITABLE FUELS AND QUANTITIES Your appliance is basically suitable for the burning of dry chopped firewood. In addition, you can burn fuels such as wood briquettes and brown coal briquettes. Use only dry material for burning. The burning of refuse of any kind, particularly plastics, will damage your appliance and the chimney and is prohibited by the statutory regulations on emissions. FUEL QUANTITIES The appliance is designed with a flat firing layout, due to its style of construction. This means that only one layer of fuel...

23 ENGLI S H Satisfying the challenges of our time implies the acceptance of responsibility. The conservation of nature is now one of our greatest challenges. Our products are developments that correspond to the latest state of the art technology. This is an essential prerequisite for the clean, efficient and law-abiding functioning of our firing appliances. CLEAN COMBUSTION The following are important to the achievement of clean combustion: 1. THE WOOD TO BE BURNED MUST BE DRY AND UNTREATED. (Fig. 11) Standard value ‹ 15 % rel. humidity in the wood. 2 - 3 years drying and well ventilated...

CHANGING THE DRAW PLATE (Fig. 5) If the draw plate or the draw-deflector is to be replaced on your firing appliance, lift the draw plate slightly to the side and remove the side fireclay component. You can now tilt the draw plate and remove it from the firebox opening. Before initial commissioning or after re-locating the appliance, cleaning and servicing, make sure that the draw plate (Fig. 5, Part 18), and the wood collector (Fig. 5, Part 21) are correctly positioned. When using a flue with a throttle flap, this must be open. On this firing appliance, it is necessary to ensure that the...

FIRING UP (Fig. 12) In order to suppress the emission of pollutants as far as possible, we would ask you - for the sake of the environment - to adhere to the following instructions for heating up your firing appliance. 1. If your appliance and chimney are cold, or if low atmospheric pressure prevails, it is recommended that initially you burn some paper, to “drive” the coldness from the appliance and the chimney. 2. For the purpose of heating up, first lay some uncoated paper on the floor of the firebox and on top of this place 0.5 kg of softwood chippings and 1.4 kg of wood (2 logs). Pull...

ENGLI S H 26 THE ENAMEL APPLIED TO YOUR HEATING APPLIANCE BECOMES FULLY HARDENED THROUGH HEATING DURING INITIAL USE. - Do not touch the surface during initial heating. It will still be soft. - To draw off the fumes that are liberated, ensure that the area housing the appliance is well ventilated and do not prepare food in the vicinity of the appliance. - Heat up the appliance thoroughly - this will shorten the hardening time. - The hardenimg of the surface will be complete after several routine heating operations. Please refer to Chapter 1 for details of the wood fuel to be burned and the...
