    Good Morning!

    We have two Englander stoves and we absolutely love them.

    The second stove sets in our unfinished basement, which is a 100-125 year two story farm house. The basement has a dirt floor and stone foundation. I have the most trouble with that stove. It either over feeds and throws out charred pellets or it over feeds and burns through the entire hopper within 12 hours on a #2 setting.

    How do I identity these stoves by model or year or does it make a difference? I'd like to be able to get more than 8-12 hrs from a 40lb sack. The neighbors have an Englander also and "claim" they fill every other day -- I also know their house is very tight and very small compared to ours.

    I saw a post with reference to Fred -- is that the Englander Fred who used to horse around in northern Missouri? If so, HI FRED from a team roping Iowa family! We miss you and the arena!

    hi cotton , which model is the one in the basement you are having trouble with , i can probably help you with it if i can get specifics. by the way , the fred refered to in that post is one of my techs, the fred you are referring to "fred ritz' has retired , and is still in missouri and is still quite a pistol. and a good friend.

    Glad to here Ritz is doing good, calling him a pistol is a nice adjective!
