  1. I have a new Avalon wood stove and my problem is creosote build up inside the stove.
    Creosote builds up inside the stove and will burn off causing lots of smoke and panic.
    I call the fire dept thinking I have a chimney fire but it goes out when I shut down the air supply.
    I think that all the brick and pipes inside the stove causes creosote to build up inside the stove where it is very hard to deal with.
    how can I solve this prob ? I have never had a fire inside the chimney itself. Just tons of heavy grey smoke that fills the neighborhood with smoke.
    I think that all that all that extra afterburning equipment inside the stove is the problem.. any ideas to help me out.

  2. First off I my opinion it can only be a few things that are causing your problem!
    …the * Wood, * the Installation or *the Equipment,and Avalon is a very good stove line!
    These are my possible actionable solutions to your problem.
    1 Contact the folks who sold the stove originally, even if you bought it from someone else who may have used it before.
    2 Contact the installer of the stove (the one who put it in for you) and your looking for Mfg. instructions book.
    3 Contact the Manufacture, I believe the corporate Mfg. of Avalon Stoves line is *Travis Industries out of California
    It could be a number of things; blockage of screen on top, the damper in the stove is blocked shut to tight,
    your wood is to wet or unseasoned, the liner pipe connect to the wall ceiling or in any bends.
