Ah yes-been through this one as well! I thought I had waterproofed well, but on a week-long storm there just is no such thing. Yes-the insulation under the floor gets wet. It took about two weeks of continual fireings to get it back, but DON't WORRY! It will dry!!

Meanwhile, enjoy the fires and the steam!

Thanks again for all the suggestions. My oven is finally dry and I am getting floor temps up to 850 degrees. It took numerous hot fires over a three week period.

Good news Stephen.

I end up going thru the same process every spring. It is a way to get rid of dead fall branches and pruning from the spring yard cleanup.

Hi all,

I finished curing my oven, used it once, then 3 quite heavy storms in one week made me end up in the same situation as described here. I'd like to know if I should gradualy fire it up to prevent damage to the floor. Or is this of lesser importance here?
