    I only have one question. Going from 220 volts to 110 volts. What is the track record at the lower voltage. Do they use the same boards, motors, etc. Waiting for resident electrical engineers to expound.

    The stove was made specifically for the 110V market. I never had an issue with 110v on any of my previous pellet burners, doubt I will with this one.

    If it was made for the North American market I guess most of the reviews would be European and irrelevant. If you have changed the motors and board it wouldn't be the same stove (durability and performance wise). Having said that wish you the best with your new stove. Will watch for further up dates about performance.

    Hi Fildo, I finally installed my Palazzetti stove and have it inspected,it is really nice and warm,I kept it on #3 as you suggested for now, to avoid the curing paint smell, I will keep watching and let you know, thanks for the advice.

    Greetings Phildo and fellow FUBARS! I got up close and personal with your "water heater" at a stove shop. I actually went to see the Ecoteck Elena - not a good hopper design as it is open to the convection blower area-Maybe the Italians dont have any sawdust in their pellet bags :). Anyway, the store had an all steel Prima on the floor. Having had an Austroflamm Integra for 16 years, not much of the new stuff impressed me. This Prima is built like a tank (the all steel version looks like a prison cell for Leprechauns;) The sales rep would not let me break it down as there were other customers in the shop so I would like to see your review before I pull the trigger. How difficult to get behind the plates to clean the pipes and are the pipes stainless steel? The links to your pics and reviews error coded for me. I will log back on using Firefox or Goonagle chrome to see if that allows access. Asking in the store by the way was $5K for the colors and $4K for the black steel. Your source is affiliated with the same OR distributor for RIKA. Hopefully if he drops the line here in the US, he will still be able to order parts. I hope you like my temporary pellet stove.

    The interior of the stove is cast iron with two heat exchangers, very easy to remove and clean. I clean the stove once every 10 days or so and it takes me about 10 minutes. ;)

    Hi Pilldo and all friends, the Palazzetti Ecofire Prima is a great pellet stove, it is a heat generating machine , we all love it even my youngest teenage son loves it, it is precision made and very nice looking, I am like Fildo I have some experience now with this stove, the installation was a little bit challenging, anybody needs feed back, I am here to help.

    Hi Tay,

    Stove looks great! If you develop any rattles with the stove let me know, I have a simple fix for them. Otherwise, mine is pumping out the heat everyday!:)

    Thanks FILDO ,
    For the air intake I used a 3" PVC pipe with a 45'elbow (glued togother) and a dome screen on the outside, the cut using a 3" drill pit and the fit is very exact , My stove has no vibration noise at all, I think your stove has some slight rattling noise because of the cast iron shell, it could be fixed as you said or with a dap of hi heat silicon in between the plates. After I installed my stove I found a vent adapter on the iternet that could fit nicely on the sove vent which is a vehicle steel exhost adapter one end 3/12" ID the other end 3" OD 4"or 6" in length. My heating system uptairs did not turn on once since I istall the stove it is between 70'-72'. image.jpg

    Hi Tom,
    The Palazzitti Ecofire Prima is a great pellet stove, I hope we do not have problem with it in the future, it is well made and super efficient with a lot of heat generation, I vacuum it empty the ash pot every day and take out the backplate every week to clean and vacuum, I also screen the last quarter of the wood pellets in the bag to separate the sawdust ,that is all.thanks
