Objective: Installing a 3" appliance adapter to prevent leaking exhaust at the connection where the appliance adapter joins with to the pellet stove.
The goal is to create a complete seal preventing any exhaust fumes from leaking in the home.
- Using a high temperature sealant, apply a stream around the inside of the appliance adapter. (see attachment)
- Slide the appliance adapter on to the stove’s exhaust hub, rotating the adapter back and forth to spread the sealant (much like a plumbing join). This will ensure that the sealant creates a complete, air-tight seal.
- Allow 24hrs for sealant to completely cure before running the appliance.
