Don2222, if I may, A friend bought a Castle Serenity and I can not find a good diagram to show him where the ports are to clean-out his stove.
Thanks to you Don2222 and showing that lower clean-out, the stove has never been so clean nor running as well!
Man did I clear some junk out of...
A lot of good information above!
I have both, a wood stove and a pellet burner.
The wood stove is in the parlor and the main heater

Hey Don! What did you end up with?
Went to a local shop and saw the St Croix Element
Very nice unit!
He also offered an Enviro of the same size, but stated he liked the St Croix as...
Funny you should mention control board..
Had an exhausting conversation about the board with them when I first bought it.
I was after the schematic...
I couldn't believe USSC wanted $100 for what I just bought on Amazon for $16

My stove went down..
With some checking found it's the pressure switch!
So, what the heck is this and why is it there?
I'm about to bypass it to...
Bio.. Yup, won't take much I agree!
CoDave.. Saw that and really doesn't do the trick unless you already have an idea of what you're after..
Looks like I may be in the market for an upgrade
Auger motor just died and debating fixing or upgrading..
Always have wanted to upgrade.. May now...
Woody Stove is right on the point here!
I have a Shelburne and love it!
Same principles apply to the Manchester.
If you're using smaller splits,...
I'm not familiar with North Idaho, but had the opportunity to buy and passed for the Canawicks.

To those of you that use Firesides, I have to ask..
Is it just me or are they weaker than last years??
I'm seeing 70% less heat from this years...
Happy to see someone curious as I.
Potential I can now gather from breakdown of molecular structure.
Something I have just learned.....
I may just have found what I'm looking for.
I'm testing and checking the math to be certain it will do what I hope.
So far so good.
If I may request..
When you folks of quality stoves go through your next clean out, please take a picture of your pot.

This was a suggestion from another forum that made some sense if the clay...
Step one in this process of learning is I believe complete.
Paper briquettes do burn
They do produce a very fine ash (close to, if not finer than...
That's a good start Peak!
I need to research the bonding weight and content of the 'blueprint paper' I'm about to run the test on.
I have 10 logs dried and preparing for the 'real' burn test.
Time to determine criteria of the test.
If there is something in particular you wish to...
You and I should talk sometime about this 4.7 Solar you have going!
Would love to see your hook-up/circuitry!
Back on subject:...
For $660 I wouldn't have bought it either.. Paid a little over half that.
Happy I did buy it, for I never would have learned just what these pellet...
Door gasket looks good (I will still replace once goods arrive).
Glass gasket I did manage to come up with some material locally and have replaced....
Thank you guys!
