    Default Superior CF4360 Gap at Smoke Chamber/Piping Transition

    Gentlemen:

    I'm looking for any information on a Superior CF4360 FP#Y-73057 regarding a visible gap at the smoke chamber/flue transition.
    Anyone else ever see one of these that really looks like the gap belongs there?

    In almost thirty years of hearth servicing, we've never come across this particular model.

    I'm guessing that this is a fireplace made by Superior? For the most, we are only humble home inspectors and we need a little more information at times..

    If you have a picture it would be very helpful, but I wouldn't think that you would want to see any gaps.

    Hi Scott,

    I'm looking for chimney inspectors' feedback on this particular issue. I realize that home inspectors wouldn't have information on this.

    Cool Re: Superior CF4360 Gap at Smoke Chamber/Piping Transition

    Hi Bart, how have you been?

    I am not intimately familiar with this model Superior box so I cannot help you on it. I do know there is an intentional gap on all Heatilators and most Heat&Glos for the last 15 yrs. This is where the cooling air from the bottom and side louvers dumps into the flue to:
    a) cool the firebox
    b) turbo charge the flue gases.

    The old Heatilator Mark 123 did this using louvers at the top of the smoke chamber.

    If Lennox (Superior) Tech Support cannot help, try Jimmy Kress at Specialty Supply in Cherry Hill, NJ. He sells replacement parts to sweeps for older Superior and Marco units and advertising in Alt. Energy Retailer Mag. 800-331-9234

    HTH,
    Bob Harper

    Keep the fire in the fireplace.
