Default Pellet Stove - How High A Flame?

I have a pellet stove and not very happy with the amount of heat
generated. I went back to the dealer and they have the flames so darn
high that it is "licking" the top of the plate inside the combustion
chamber. They said it was normal and that is the way you generate the
heat. It reminded me of a small controlled forest fire! All you could
see was flame!!!!! I have to say one thing - it was definately
generated heat! I stop'd by another place and they said the flame
shouldn't exceed 6 inches above the burn pot. Now I am really
confused. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

We have a pellet stove, it heats the house wonderfully. We don't have the
flame very high, we have the blower on med. Turn the blower up that is what
puts out the heat. You can turn the flame up a bit to make more heat too.

Interesting - and thanks for the quick reply. I'm sure it is something
I'm doing wrong. I just turned up the feed and will see how that works
out.

Thanks again.
