Testing Information

This manual describes the installation and operation of the Striker™ S160 non-catalytic wood heaters. These heaters meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s emissions limits for wood heaters sold on or after July 1, 1990. This heater has been developed, tested, and constructed in accordance with the requirements of UL 1482, ULC S627-00 and HUD standards and is listed by OMNI Test Laboratories, Beaverton, OR. It has been approved for residential, mobile home, and alcove installations.

General Safety Precautions

1.When this room heater is not properly installed, a house fire may result. To reduce the risk of fire, follow the installation instructions. Contact local building or fire officials about restrictions and installation inspection requirements in your area.

2.Wear gloves during installation to avoid injury from sharp edges on the stove and/or its parts.

3.This unit is designed and engineered to burn only dry, well-seasoned wood. Burning wet wood will greatly reduce the Stove’s efficiency, produce excessive amounts of smoke, and can cause dangerous chimney fires due to creosote build-up.

4.Before opening the door, the draft control must be fully open to avoid possible combustion flash (ignition of hot volatile gases as the door is opened).

5.Do not use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid, or similar liquids to start or “freshen up” a fire in this stove. Keep all flammable liquids and combustible materials 36” from any point of the stove when it is in use.

6.While burning, fuel utilizes oxygen from the air in the room. Be sure to allow an adequate amount of fresh air into the room where the stove is burning.

7.The outside surface of the stove will be hot while burning properly and can set items like clothing and curtains on fire. Keep furnishings and other combustible materials away from the stove. Using the heat from the stove to dry wet clothing can be hazardous if clothes are placed too near the surface of the stove.

8.Do not allow children to play near the stove without close supervision. Do not touch the stove while it is burning. Use extreme caution while the unit is in use. Surface temperatures become dangerously hot and can cause serious burns.

9.Do not allow anyone to operate the stove who is not familiar with the operating instructions.

10.Attempts to achieve heat output rates that exceed stove design specifications can result in permanent damage to the stove. Never leave your stove unattended on high burn rates.This maycause overfiring. Overfiring the stove may cause a house fire. If the stove glows, you are overfiring.

11.Use smoke detectors near your stove as well as in sleeping areas. Keep a water hose or hand-operated fire extinguisher close for safety.

12.Inspect your chimney at least once a month during the burning season to check for soot and creosote accumulations. Any accumulations over 1/4” thick should be removed by a professional chimney sweep. Do not attempt to burn out heavy creosote accumulations with a hot fire. If large accumulations are occurring, review your burning procedures.

NOTE: DIAGRAMS & ILLUSTRATIONS ARE NOT TO SCALE.

 

13.If a creosote fire should develop, the fire department should be called immediately, and then attempts should be made to control the fire until assistance arrives. If a “runaway” fire should develop causing over-heating of the stove, the door and draft regulators should be closed immediately. The fire should die down once deprived of oxygen. After a severe chimney fire, the complete chimney system should be checked before further use.

14.Do not operate with a grate or with an elevated fire. Always build the fire on the surface of the firebrick.

15.Please read this entire manual before you install and use your new room heater. Failure to follow instructions may result in property damage, bodily injury, or even death.

Drafting

Your wood stove is dependent upon a properly functioning chimney for optimum performance. It is a high efficiency appliance that loses much less heat up the chimney than older appliances and fireplaces. For this reason it is important to match the stove to the chimney. The chimney has two functions: 1) It draws combustion air into the appliance (without air, no fuel will burn) and 2) It exhausts combustion by-products. Your new Country™ Collection stove is what is known as a “natural draft” appliance. The appliance depends solely on the natural draft of the chimney system to draw combustion air into the unit. Draft is the force that moves air from the appliance up into the chimney. The amount of draft in your chimney depends on the length of the chimney, local geography, nearby obstructions, and other factors. Too much draftmaycauseexcessivetemperaturesintheappliance.Slow or inadequate draft equals poor combustion and possible smoking problems. The two main culprits of poor chimney draft are: 1) A chimney too large for your appliance and 2) A chimney with not enough height to produce adequate draft for your particular stove model. Your Lennox Hearth Products dealer will be able to advise you on matching a proper system for your new stove. Inadequate draft will cause the appliance to leak smoke into the room through the stove and the chimney connector joints. An uncontrollable burn or a glowing red stove or chimney part indicates excessive draft. Also see Troubleshooting on page 18.

Negative Pressure Warning

This appliance is not designed to be operated in a negative pressure. Very airtight homes with large kitchen exhaust fans, or homes with furnace cold air returns located in close proximity to the wood stove or fireplace insert may create negative pressure in the same room as the heating appliance. This can create dangerous back drafting of the stove and chimney joints, drawing combustion by-products into the home. Be sure your home has adequate makeup air to eliminate negative pressures caused by the above-mentioned sources. Outside air connected to the appliance probably will not resolve such a problem as the stove or fireplace insert is not the source of negative pressure. Lennox Hearth Products accepts no liability for damages resulting from

negative pressures described above.

Creosote

Creosote---Formation and Need for Removal---When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors, which combine with expelled moisture to form creosote. The creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of a slow-burning fire. As a result, creosote residue accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited, this creosote makes an extremely hot fire. The chimney and chimney connector should be inspected at least once every two months during the heating season to determine if a creosote build-up has occurred. If creosote has accumulated, it should be removed

to reduce the risk of a chimney fire.

Ash Disposal

Ashes should be scooped out of a cool stove with a small metal shovel. Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tight fitting lid. The closed container of ashes should be placed on a non-combustible floor or on the ground, well away from all combustible materials, pending final disposal. If the ashes are disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise locally dispersed, they should be retained in the closed container until all the cinders have thoroughly cooled. Ashes can ignite up to 72 hours after removal from the stove.

Fuel

This unit is designed and engineered to burn, dry, wellseasoned wood only. Dry, seasoned wood is that which has been cut, split, and allowed to dry under a covered area where air is free to flow and circulate under and around the wood (not under a tarp or plastic). Make sure wood is not stacked directly on the ground, it may absorb moisture from the ground. It should be allowed to dry in these conditions for a minimum of six months, preferably one year or more.

IT MUST BE UNDERSTOOD THAT WOOD CANNOT BE LEFT IN ANY KIND OF WET OR DAMP AREA OR IT WILL NEVER BECOME COMPLETELY SEASONED. Your stove will not operate at the level that it is meant to unless you use seasoned, dry wood. Do not burn driftwood or wood that has been in salt water, doing so will void your warranty. Do not burn treated wood, coal, garbage, cardboard, solvents, or colored paper. Burning treated wood, garbage, solvents, or colored paper may result in the release of toxic fumes.

This type of burning will also void your warranty.

Break-In Period

If your stove has a Gold or Nickel-Plated Door, be sure to clean it with Windex brand glass cleaner and a very soft cloth to remove any fingerprints and residues prior to the first fire and before any fire if the gold has been handled or soiled. Do not close the door tightly during the “Break-in Period.” Also, open the door frequently (every 5-10 minutes) to keep the gasket from adhering to the curing paint. Ventilate the house well during these first firings as the paint gives off carbon dioxide and unpleasant odors. It is recommended that persons sensitive to an imbalance in the indoor air quality avoid the stove during the curing process.

Please be patient with the heat output of your stove for the first few weeks. The steel will go through a curing process that eliminates moisture, which is deep in the steel and firebrick. This moisture will reduce initial heat output of your stove and may make it difficult to start. After you have broken in the paint on the stove it will be necessary to build hot fires to thoroughly remove the moisture from the appliance. Running the stove with the draft fully open for 1 to 1-1/2 hours after starting and adding generous amounts of fuel during the first week or two should complete the curing process. We recommend the use of a thermometer attached to the stovetop or chimney. Temperatures on the connector pipe should run in the 250-600 degree range. (DO NOT OVERFIRE

THE STOVE DURING THIS PROCESS. IF THE STOVE OR CHIMNEY BECOMES RED, REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF AIR

ENTERING THE STOVE IMMEDIATELY).

Paint Curing

Your new Striker™ S160 is painted with Forest High Temperature Paint that cures during the first few firings. We recommend that you put your stove through a regimen of three burns. The first two should last for 20 minutes each at 250 degrees (the stove should be allowed to cool completely between each burn). The third should be a burn of at least 450 degrees F. for 45-60 minutes. The paint will become soft, gummy, and emit non-toxic smoke during these burns. After the stove cools down for the third time, the paint will harden. DO NOT BUILD A LARGE ROARING FIRE UNTIL

THIS CURING EFFECT IS COMPLETE OR YOU MAY DAMAGE THE FINISH OF YOUR STOVE. Spray can touch-ups should be done only with Forest brand paint, available from all Lennox Hearth Products dealers.
