Between the wall and the stove need to put a brick strip thickness cast brick and a layer of nonflammable insulation. Suitable for this role, steeped in the clay felt. From the inner surface of the furnace to the wall should be 25 – 30 cm, and from the furnace door of the furnace to the opposite wall not less than 1.25 m.
Masonry stoves require a professional approach and thorough implementation of the technology.

During laying it is necessary to observe the correctness of bandaging of seams and to check the geometric proportions using plumb and level, and also a cord , which pull the perimeter of the future ovens to speed. When masonry stoves should be thoroughly coat seams and wipe the excess clay. All cracks should be thoroughly greased with clay, they should be free of voids, and the thickness of seams should not exceed 0.5 cm.

The composition of the solution and the procedure of kneading

Mortar for masonry stoves are made of clay, river sand and water. The volume of water should be no more than ¼ of the total volume of the solution. The amount of sand required to be added to the solution depends on the quality of the clay. The heavier the clay, the more it will need.

Advice 5: How to clean the stove in the car

In the winter as it never becomes actual the problem of heating of salon of the car, and if the radiator of the heating system of your car is filled with mud, heating requires more time. To ensure access of warm air, wash the stove in the car, and do this without disassembling the entire control panel.
How to clean the stove in the car
You will need
  • - two hoses;
  • - clamps and tape FUM;
  • compressor;
  • vacuum cleaner;
  • pump;
  • - capacity of the fluid to drain;
  • acid antiscale, special tools for cleaning the radiator, etc.
Look in the engine compartment of your car and locate the two hose coming from the stove. Detach these hoses in different vehicles, this requires different actions. Anyway, gently remove all the disturbing details and remember the sequence of steps to fold the fastener separately.
Freeing the hose ends, lengthen them with a garden, from an old washing machine or any other hoses. Secure the joint with clamps and tape FUM, to ensure tightness, otherwise you may ruin the interior.
Lower the hose down, it will drain and raise the upper above the stove (if possible, above the panel in the cabin). Blow out with a compressor or vacuum cleaner (if there is such function) of the residual water.
Fill the stove with cleaning fluid. This can be plain water, boiling water, salt, acetic or any other acid antiscale, undiluted "Silit" or other cleansers. Of course, if you have the opportunity buy special products to clean the heater radiator. Give the opportunity to react and to soak the dirt, highly corrosive materials do not hold more than 10-15 minutes. Not very corrosive substances (e.g. cleaning products for sanitary ware), you can leave it on overnight.
Gently drain the liquid by means of a second hose. If you poured the acid, be prepared for a violent reaction and foaming. Repeat the procedure several times until the radiator starts flowing transparent liquid.
Thoroughly rinse the radiator with water. To provide the desired pressure, attach the hose to the water system of the house (bathroom faucet), use a pump or compressor. You can wash the radiator from both sides, pouring water at a time, from one side or the other.
For cooler flushing can be used deep pump. Connect it to one of the hoses and put in a bucket of water (you can add detergent or acid). Then turn on the pump and run water through the radiator. Connect the pump to the other hose and repeat the procedure.

Advice 6: How to melt the stove

Brick kiln house is a source of soft, radiant heat that is so necessary in the cold season. During the heating period, it should, though, constantly 1-2 times a day to furnace the array does not get too cold. But what if the oven is located in the country where you visit in winter, in the best case for the weekend or for the holidays? You need to prepare it for winter operation, take care of the procurement and storage of firewood. But the main thing is to know how to melt the stove.
How to melt the stove
At the end of the summer season, inspect the furnace and chimney for cracks and crevices between the bricks. If the stove is whitewashed, it is very easy to identify the traces of soot on the whitewash. Small cracks apply a clay mortar, large cracks repaired with clay with the addition of gravel. Thoroughly clean stove and chimney of ashes and soot. Do not leave valve closed: if they freeze, then when you open you run the risk of them jam or break.
Prepare the wood in advance. Preferred deciduous trees – birch, oak, aspen. Put them in a well-protected from rain and snow place and dry it within 1-2 years. If to feed the furnace raw wood, a significant portion of heat (30 to 50%) will be spent on evaporation of the liquid and lost, and the condensate will begin to destroy the chimney. Put the logs into pieces about the same size (thickness 5-10 cm 5-10 cm less than the dimensions of the firebox). Keep in the house for the firewood on the furnace 2 days to have time to evaporate residual moisture.
Melting the stove after a long break, first warm the flue to restore traction. If this is not done, then the tube cold air in the pipe the smoke will not go out and into the room. Open damper and ashbox's door. Twist the tube a few sheets of paper, light it and push the inside of the chimney through the cleanout door or flap opening. The appearance of buzz in the pipe would mean that the tube is pushed and power has been restored. Remember to close the cleanout door.
Place on a grate crumpled newspaper, birch bark, thin twigs and chips, then small logs on top of them and larger. Do not place the logs close to each other and leave a gap of 10-15 cm between the upper row of wood and ceiling of the firebox. Make sure that the damper is fully open, and the ash-pit door is ajar. Ignite the paper and close the furnace door. Once the wood is well breaks out, cover the ash-pit door, leaving a small gap for air.
To the wood burned evenly, 2-3 times stir it with a poker in the process chamber. Do not open furnace door too often as this leads to strong cooling of the furnace. As soon as the first firewood load to burn through large coals, make a new one. When burned it and evenly distribute the coals on the grate and cover the choke 2/3 to heat does not go into the pipe. Do not cover it completely, as this may cause carbon monoxide poisoning. To close the valve can be 10-15 minutes after the embers darken, flecked with ashes, and blue flames over them disappear.
The oven is not designed to burn household waste. Do not use for kindling dirty paper, milk packets, cardboard, painted or lacquered boards, resinous wood. Soot and products of combustion will rapidly accumulate in the chimney, reducing its cross section and making it difficult cravings.

Brick oven needs to heat up gradually. It is a lengthy process that can take more than a day. Don't be tempted to heat long enough to warm the house quickly. The long furnace efficiency of the furnace drops, and overheating leads to the formation of cracks in masonry and veneer. You heat the oven 1.5-2 hours, making two full load of logs. To speed up the warming of the garden after a long absence, use electric heaters.
Useful advice
In the process of kindling the stove and watch the fire and listen to him. Yellow, measuring the rustle and crackle of saying that the burning process is fine. The buzz in the firebox and very bright color of the flame indicate too strong blowing. To decrease it, shut the ash-pit door. Dark, sluggish, aptasia flame, black smoke from the chimney formed by incomplete combustion of wood due to lack of oxygen. Wide open the damper and ash pit.
