Purpose: Baffles in wood burning appliances are designed to keep the heat inside the firebox to ensure a clean burn. They also protect the top of the appliance from over heating. They also ensure proper air flow inside the fireplace. If they are damaged or deteriorating in any way, they should be replaced.
Installation tips: To remove the baffle, first remove the secondary air tube. Simply unscrew the secondary air tube on the left side, slide the tube toward the right until the left end drops out of its hole. Slide the tube back towards the left to get the right end out of its hole.
To remove the baffle, push up and slide it off the brackets. Replace both the baffle and the secondary air tube as you removed them and be sure to have the holes on the secondary air tube facing toward the front. Do this in reverse order to get the baffle back into place. It will take some time and patience
