    hello all,

    new here, have some questions . a friend just gave me a nesco corn stove - model mh18250 , manufatured in 1997. it was given to him and he never used it and did not know much about it, other than guy said it worked. i looked in the hopper and it was full of pellets, not corn. i know some of the newer stoves burn both, and more, but is it ok to burn in this stove. also i want to install this in a walkout basement, on a raised heart. my opening in wall for vent is 3 1/2' above stove outlet, so it would come out of stove in rear, 90 deg elbow up 3 1/2' and 90 deg elbow out. does this sound ok? only reason i ask is because i found nesco website, and they show it venting straight out back of stove thru wall. nothing said of my application? website shows a "cherokee 2100" which looks identical to mine, but no answers to my questions there.

    also...... i'm in nw ct - 06098, anyone have any tips on where to get corn or pellets cheap near near????

    thanks , mike

    I don't believe you should burn wood pellets in that. Corn should be ok. You have to be careful about burn back thru the hopper even with corn. I may be wrong though.
