    Default I need help with the new military Space heater arctic stove

    I've played around with this stove only a coupe of times. Using diesel, It seems to burn just fine, but once in awhile it acts like it revvs up, then burps a little smoke out the door.

    I think I have all the airbubbles out of the line. Everything is on the correct setting.

    Any of you military guys fiddled with this thing?

    I have the small hunter version that has the onboard tank. I got it without the stove pipe and through experience, I have found that they are very picky about stove pipe setup and need to be vented just right.

    Mine would go out and smoke like crazy and flash back up when I opened the door. Went to a larger vent pipe and no dampener and it has ran fine.

    It also burned much cleaner with Kerosine instead of pump Diesel.

    JMHO
