WoodMaster / Re: Water Level Indicator
« on: January 28, 2019, 04:47:56 AM »
I have a 4400 model, guessing they are pretty much all the same.

The "Float Level" is found on the top of the water jacket, toward the front of the unit.

The metal has to be removed and the batt insulation, as well.
Because of the Control Panel, I'd remove the Right side metal, as you look at the stove.

A large Crescent wrench/adjustable wrench will remove the bung/float assembly, it has a wire coming out of it.

I've been going thru plenty of Ash.
Tree guy, a buddy, mentioned it looked like "swamp ash", the kind you'd find in "bottom lands"
He was correct, I had cut it in a wet area, full of seeps.
The single digit and below zero temps will have us burning a bunch thru the next week.

Fire Wood / Re: 290 Farm Boss

I've gotta' a 290 with 20" b/c combo, it's been a good saw, have only run a dozen tanks of fuel thru it, (it was pretty much new old stock when I came across it) I'll put an 18 b/c on it when I wear the 20" combo out and probably open the muffler up and re-tune it after this winters' flogging.

Hey guys,
thanks for the suggestions...went out yesterday and got the problem solved...quick too..
In case anyone else with a Woodmaster ever has this problem...here is the steps I took to solve.

1.  Rod has a hole through the end...Woodmaster baffle is a thin plate with a piece of square stock mounted on the top with a hole drilled through it...rod gets pinned to hole...easy enough.

2.  Burned most of wood in furnace through...shoveled ashes out, the put coals aside in wheel barrow.

3.  Put a few pieces of wood in the box to build up some height, lay a piece of plywood down on the wood...now I have a nice surface to lay on.

4.  Looking down from the stack (now that it has cooled a little), line rod up through square stock

5.  Slide damper plate back about 3 inches...do this by hand...In furnace, put nail or bolt through the end of the rod, now I can pull the damper piece back towards the furnace entryway.

6.  Once the damper makes it to the front of the furnace, it can be removed, cleaned up, and re-inserted.

7.  Feed rod in until it meets the damper piece...damper piece will tilt down just enough to align the rod's hole and the hole in the square stock...insert your bolt,,,and push the rod back into place.


I could not find a decent picture or description of this process...so if anyone else has this happen...i hope it helps.

When I built the fire back up, I had only lost about 15 degrees and that was with the house calling for heat...not too shabby.

Thanks for the post and description of your fix. Just came in from a 12 1/2 hour shift and the good wife told me the rod slid out of the stove when she went out to feed the hungry beast. Looks like I have a plan for Tuiesday morning(I get to work 2 more long shifts, and the weather will be mid 50's Tuesday)
