Review: Jotul F500 Oslo
Jotul F500 Oslo damper control problem as well
I just experienced the same problem that I think medbill411 and Keystonedig reported in reviews on this site. We love this stove Jotul Oslo F500CB purchased in July 2009. This evening, Christmas eve, the damper control would no longer reduce the volume of air for combustion. The stove was pretty full when this started and burning vigorously. Fortunately, I didn't have a more serious problem this evening since the stove has now burned down. I'll check whether the damper can be reseated as Keystonedig indicate was done when this happened with their stove. However, if this can't be fixed, I have a real problem since I don't have a conventional furnace, only the wood stove to heat our home. I've emailed our wood stove dealer but because of the holiday, I likely won't be able to discuss with them until Monday.
