Before using the stove, please make sure that the baffle plate in metal is properly placed (on the hooks or fastened to the bolts depending on the model) for optimum combustion and preventing soot on the glass.

  1. Locate the metal baffle plate in the stove: To access the metal baffle plate, gently remove the top vermiculite plate (see first picture below) from the fire chamber. It may be necessary to remove several other vermiculite stones in order to remove the baffle plate. Be careful as the tiles are fragile.
  2. Make sure that the baffle plate is firmly fixed to the top of the combustion chamber either on the hooks or fastened to the bolts.
