    Just a Thanks to the Forum.

    Ready to drop 200 bucks on a sit 820 nova for my JOTUL I started poking around and ended up here.

    Reading the posts I discovered spider nests clogging the manifold supply inside the metering jet. I guess since it isn't the pilot jet we would call it the main jet.

    I pulled it and nothing. Putting it together I decided to blow through the line leading to the manifold from the valve. It was almost impossible to blow through.

    After disconnecting the other end I saw the spider nest. Looked like cotton ball packed in there.

    So thanks. What led me there was a post that someone claimed the had 4 gas valves and still wasn't fixed. Someone then chimed in saying
    "these have a 1% failure rate".

    Thanks fellas. I will donate some cash to the site as a thanks.


    Now you may see a lot of me as we are renovating and will go oil or propane and solar hotwater so I'll need more advice!!!!

    They'll be baaaaack!

    You might consider leaving the pilot burner lit through the summer, and turning the fireplace on for a few minutes each week to give those little beggars who are moving in a waaaarm welcome!
