I saw Geneva pellets for $239/ton. I've never used these before. Are they decent pallets?
I save mine in a big barrel and spread it on my lawn in the spring with a seed spreader. Lawns love it.
I've had my Meridian for 10 years. The only thing I've ever had to replace was an exhaust fan and a high temp sensor.
Mine had no issues as long as it was inspected by the Fire Dept. and Building Inpector. No increase
My usage, lately, is about 1 1/2 ~ 2 bags a day to keep the house around 68~70 degrees. More, if it gets really cold.
You'll realize that you won't...
I'd go with a Enviro M55 or Harman Accentra.
Add a couple of coal hods to your list. it makes it easier to pour pellets into the hopper.
If you're going with an insert, get one with a rail system. It will save you so much time and save your back when you have to pull it out for...
Ummm, I was just trying to say that if a coal fire can burn underground for 50 years, imagine how much coal there is down there.
Like the anthracite coal fire that's been burning underground in Centralia for 50 years?
It sounds like you have a clog somewhere. Wen was the last time you gave the stove a good deep cleaning? I'd be willing to bet that the vent pipe is...
Supply and demand. Everyone want pellets in the winter, therefore high prices. I buy mine in the spring when prices are lower.
I've been burning Barefoots for years and never had any issues with them. It must be a bad batch.
I had the fake logs in my stove for about a month, yeah they look nice, but what a disaster to clean. Just "accidentally" drop them while cleaning...
I give the untreated ones to my neighbor, he burns them in his woodstove. I guess he likes splitting and stacking.
I have 3 ideas:
Your ignitor may be failing
You're not getting enough air in the stove.
Your burnpot isn't lined up tight against the ignitor....
I'm surprised the Goo-Gone didn't work. It's always worked for me.
Maybe try the razor blade when the stove is hot to get the bulk of it off, then...
Let the stove cool off, apply some Goo-Gone and it will look fine.
This happens to my Meridian also. Usually it's because the burn pot and liner aren't seated right. Push the pot toward the back of the stove, it's...
As a fellow Meridian owner, I would lean towards the draft setting. Since you now have an OAK, you may want to tweak that for better results. My...
Unless you have one HUGE hopper, 4-5 days would be close to impossible
I've had an Enviro for 10 years now and I've been very happy with it. Next stove will be an M55.
My guess is that your damper isn't open enough.
I strip the stove down first, pulling all the fans and motors, so there's not much chance for damage.
The stove gets hauled out to the driveway for...
I had no issues at all. All I had to produce was the letter of inspection from the Fire Chief.
I use the air compressor on my stove for the yearly cleaning. You'd be amazed at how much ash comes out no matter how clean you think your stove is.
And the fake log set was tossed after the first clean out...........
I usually clean mine out once a week. With dirtier pellets, more often.
I guess the best answer would be: whenever the pot looks like it needs it.
That's what I do every year. No matter how clean you think your stove is: the air compressor will blow everything out of it.
Not to mention one nasty burn if the channel locks slip.
