Before installing your stove
Before installing your new stove, make sure that the location complies with the applicable building regulations. See also operating instructions for information on minimum distance for from flammable materials. If the stove is to be installed close to a brick wall or other non-flammable material, there are no minimum distance requirements. However, we recommend at least 5-7cm at the rear for cleaning access. The stove can be connected to a conventional masonry chimney, a modern modular pumice type chimney, or to an insulated metal-flue duct. Consult with your builder/installer which type suits your situation the best.
Before initial lighting
Once your stove is in place and all instructions have been observed, it is ready for lighting up. However, please take careful note of the following:
The rear section tiles should be removed before the initial lighting up. A sudden temperature change could cause the tiles to crack. The tiles are not covered by the warranty, so ensure that they are at least at room temperature before lighting up. The baffle plate and vermiculite panels may crack under hard impact. These are not covered by the warranty, so avoid any heavy blows when placing wood in the firebox. Avoid touching the stove when initially lighting up, as the paint is hardening at this stage. Touching the paint may cause the steel to show through – if necessary, it can be retouched using the spray can included in the Jydepejsen start pack (see below). It is a good idea to ensure effective ventilation during the first use, as the stove will generate smoke and an odour of paint. Do not stay close to the stove. The smoke and paint odour will dissipate after about 1-hour of operation and is not hazardous to health. For correct lighting/burning of your stove refer to the operating instructions.
Practice makes perfect
Optimum regulation of the air-vent takes a little practice. Once you have had a bit of practice with lighting the stove you will develop a natural routine. The stove will expand and contract during the lighting and cooling phase, possibly resulting in creaking noises. This phenomenon is completely normal for sheet-iron stoves, and should not be regarded as a fault. Please read the operating instructions for further guidance.
