A wood stove without a thermometer is like a car without a speedometer. Informed operation of your stove’s controls shows you when the fire consumes wood too fast, exceeding the stove’s efficient operation zone.
It’s impossible to know accurately, by looking at the burning flames, the temperature of your stove and flue. This thermometer enables you to avoid burning too hot, so you can prevent damage to your stove.
An under-fired wood stove is smoky, causing hazardous creosote and tar to form in the stove pipe. The thermometer informs you when burn rate is too cool, and tell you when optimum firing is achieved for safe operation.
Select a position on flue pipe a little higher than 18 inches above the wood stove. First, drill a three-sixteenths-Inch hole through both stove pipe walls. Second enlarge slightly only the exterior wall hole to one-quarter-inch. Slide magnet (first) and eyelet (second) onto probe, then
insert probe completely through both stove pipe wall into the flue. The magnet will stabilize the assembly securely on steel pipe and, when properly installed, prevent smoke from escaping the flue.
Expected life of a probe thermometer.
Because of highly corrosive gas exhaust in flue pipes, the probe eventually corrodes and will cause inaccurate readings. Replace after 4000 hours of wood stove burning
GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR MOST WOOD STOVES:
900°F (500°C) And Hotter: Safety hazard, could ignite existing flue creosote. High temperature may be reached during initial stove firing, but is not advised for continuing operation. Burning too hot wastes wood, shortens burn time.
400°F - 900°F (200°C - 500°C): Optimum operating zone. Efficient wood-burning without generating excessive smoke and creosote.
400°F (200°C) Or Cooler: Incomplete combustion, casing soot, smoke, and hazardous creosote.

Very Fast Shipping
Received my order in less than the time expected. Surprised and happy!
I was concerned that the glass wouldnt be real ceramic, but it is. it only took them 3 days to get it cut and delivered. it took 2 weeks when i ordered from woodland last year. much better job at cjs. thanks
Replacing the glass was a breeze
This is my first time doing business with FastReplacementglass.com, and I am impressed with their customer care, they actually care!!!!. I have talked to Kimberly in person twice and communicated via email more than a couple of times in regards to getting a replacement glass for my fire-place glass bi-fold doors. Actually the glass procurement was the fast and easy part, and it came fast with accurate dimensions finished with a pencil edge that matched the other glass panels perfectly. The challenge after receiving the replacement glass was to find the proper gasket to replace the old used gaskets. Kimberly is very knowledgeable and has solutions for unique problem jobs like mine turned out to be.
Glass had to be resized to meet order once. Customer service was amazing. Unfortunately the glass was not. Even with the resizing and additional information provided the glass failed to meet the specifications required. Although the company was amazing to work with, I will have to go somewhere else with my business.
I am REALLY pleased! The picture of it does not do it justice. That is the prettiest piece of wood, and a contractor doing some work in my home said that the grain in the edge looks just like Damascus steel. I do wish the pic could give you a better indication of what I will enjoy for the rest of my life!
