    Somebody goofed up.

    Its a door. Not worthwhile getting this excited about it.
    Maybe ask for a $25.00 refund.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    It looks like someone tried to replace a lowboy furnace with one that has the blower under it. It may be a poor design, but that doesn't excuse sloppy workmanship.

    The design of the door is not the problem, lack of code and installation techniques is the problem. You are not suppose to install B vent directly to the elbow or for that matter any single wall pipe. A single wall to B vent adaptor is required to be used. Since this is required by code the hole was sized in an attempt to make sure the proper fitting was used. If this is done the hole is the correct size and there will be no problems.
    If all else fails....Try reading the directions!

    Tell it like it is and let the chips fall where they may.

    Any views or opinions stated here are strictly my own.

    They do need to be trimmed a bit. Otherwise they pull that cheapo nut out of the main furnace housing, which is generally garbage at that point and the door falls off or you have to reconstruct something to get it to stay on. The dude did get a little aggressive on the trimming. He could have used a flue starter and avoided that. I wouldn't worry about the looks of it. Get him to give you a couple of free filters and be done with it.

    I will end my comments here with this "A Picture Says A Thousand Words" would anyone in there right mind want to spend thousands to have someone do this to there new purchase? call it poor door design or justify it anyway you want, it does reflect and will reflect on the company that installed it, that furnace installation would not end up at my home looking like that.

    My first thought was...wonder what the rest of the venting/job looks like?

    Twilli says your right and that is a sad looking installation. Twilli is glad Coleman doesn't do those kind of things.

    Only if you want to cover the logs, but most folks prefer to see the logs burning.
