Dark, after reading this I decided to remove the fan solenoid cover as suggested. I will let you know what I see.  I don't burn highly dried wood, more of crap scrap wood that is free.  Lots of southern pine pieces.  I do however burn some good stuff when needed.  Lets see if I can recover quicker than before.

One more thing CB has done is that on the 2400 stoves do not have any turbulators, as the passages are rectangular in shape about 2"x 8".These stoves have alot more surface area from which to pickup up heat. Maybe some 2400 owners can chime in here. Jeff

The 1400 has a rectangular heat exchanger and no mechanical spiral devices inserted into the heat exchanger.  The 1400 only has the one large rectangular heat exchanger. Without measuring, I would guess it to be 2 inch by 20 inches and about 3 feet long.

Add me to the list...I yanked the solenoid and cover this AM. After running the boiler all summer and spending alot of time watching things burn it seemed that the low burn cycle was pointless and didn't do anything other than increase the odds of smoke. Not everytime, but alot of times, the stove would knock down to low and smoke a bit after a burning perfectly clear for a 30-40 degree run. This always irritated me and I'd often re-set it to 150 and shut it off. I spent hours fiddling with wood, coals, RC etc etc etc, but never got that final run the way I liked it. After reading this thread I felt kinda foolish that I didn't figure out to pull the solenoid ALONG time ago...haha...not seeing the forest through the trees I guess.

Anyways...I monkeyed up and didn't put enough wood in last night, so things were at 137 this AM. I got her going and pulled the solenoid....after an hour or so the stoved dropped to low, or so it thought, and puff or transition smoke. Awesome.

Thanks for the tip fellas. I'll keep a good eye on it this week and see how it goes, but so far so good.

Temps warmed up right after making the changes, so I haven't let the stove run too much on it's own. I've been home alot and have been running it in 'summer  mode'. The few times I let it run, cycling normally, it looked real good. No smoke, never even close to temp over-run/boiling over.
