    Hello:

    I am not sure if this has been asked before but I just wanted to know if anyone knows how many pounds of pellets per hour the breckwell brands (I have a p23I) or similar breckwell models use based on each heating level.

    This is all I know From the manual: 1 & 3 are illuminated - 0.9 pounds per hour

    I would like to know the others:

    1 & 4 is illuminated - ?
    1 is only illuminated - ?
    2 is illuminated - ?
    3 is illuminated - ?
    4 is illuminated - ?
    5 is illuminated - ?

    If anyone can provide that information it will be greatly appreciated.

    Thx.

    This is just a rough estimate so do not pull out your stop watch and scale.
    #1 approx. one pound an hour
    #2 approx. two pounds per hour
    #3 approx. three pounds per hour
    #4 approx. four pounds per hour
    #5 approx. five pounds per hour

    on a Big e the rating is almost right but on 5 the burn rate is 5.5 lbs a hour
    on the smaller models it varies some stoves at 5 will only burn 4.5lbs a hour
