Ben Franklin Cast Iron stove
Hello, we have a cast iron stove that we just installed. However I just noticed by looking at pictures of other stoves, I believe ours is missing a piece. It looks like there must be a plate that goes in the back of the stove but facing towards the front. kind of in this shape\. Is this piece important?
For we have used our stove without it. The only thing we are having problems with is getting a draft. When we first start a fire and when it goes down, there is a lot of smoke that comes into the house.
Any help would be great.
