    i did and put it on my watched list in case it ever happens to me. i peruse every 25pvdc thread i see just in case whatever happens. :) i dont know what dry moly spray is, i assumed that spraying a lubricate (is it a lubricant?) would be of little value with the high temps.

    I went overboard and bought this spare part for the wood stove ;) One can never be too prepared! I have always preferred the strike anywhere matches and it appears they are being banned??? This is a crock of $hit! Are they gonna ban fertilizer and household cleaners too because you could make a bomb with them too? Sometimes I wonder how some people can walk and breathe at the same time!

    Dry Moly spray is a High Temperature spray on dry lubricant the Mike Holton recommends for the augers and auger tubes to prevent auger jams. I tried it and it works great!

    In a pinch, I can light mine with a match(some gel added to the pellet). But the Mapp gas torch is just way too easy.

    I tried pooks way once and scared the beans out of myself!

    LOL I do have Super Cedars while unnecessary are a nice convenience. I have found that scoring into 6 pie wedges reliably starts the fire even with no kindling. One thing that I have found interesting is the Wiseway pellet burner "stove" and feel that this technology could catch on. If someone could produce this unit in the familiar wood stove look I think it would sell very well!

    When I bought my stove off of e-bay, it came with a whole extra spare stove, three spare control panels two spare combustion blowers and a convection blower. Everything was in pieces, but that is what I ended up with, after I put things together, the only stove part I had to buy was a burn pot that was missing.

    I now have two working stoves, but only one is installed, I thing I'll install the spare stove in my garage.

    Having a stash of parts is a real good thing.
    We have a few items, but the best thing is three stoves on the main floor.
    If one quits, just lite off another while we get parts.

    The little Whit can do the job unless its real cold, the large Whit can do it any time and the Quad can heat the entire place if need be.

    Have a stove in every corner. :)

    I still have two viable corners that I am eyeing for another stove. :eek:

    Still, having spare parts is a good plan.

    Hi Snowy

    Get a used stove cheap and fix it up for the other corner. Then if you sell it and make $$ it would be fun!

    Hi Don

    Actually, I was foolin a bit about the last two corners.
    When I installed the two Whits back in 2009, my daughter called some serious smack on me for having three stoves upstairs.

    I jokingly said, well don't get excited, I still have corners left over.

    A couple weeks went by and I moved a corner table and put some tape on the floor, outlining what looked like a hearth pad and tape on the wall outlining a vent pipe location.

    Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa ha ha ha, you should have heard the howl when they came to visit again. " OMG, YOUR NOT REALLY GONNA PUT IN ANOTHER STOVE" ?????? !!!

    I have considered a battery powered stove for use during power outages.

    You could put a Wiseway in each of the remaining corners they don't need power at all.

    Then you could tell those that come to visit that you are also thinking of pulling the plug on the 'tricity as well since you no longer need it to run the stoves with.

    Good idea Smokey. I talked to one of their top guys last summer just after they got their "Pellet Stove" EPA certified and now they are Rocking and Rolling! Interesting machine for only $1500 ! ! !
    See their new video!

    I got a identical harman minus the trim on CL for 440. No waiting for dealer or mail. Works nice in the garage too! Probably no part that can't be swapped in half an hour. Todays temp 19 with 20 plus wind. Global warming my a--. Second month below normal temps.

    I have zero spares, I know my 25 will have no issues this year :fingers crossed:
    I am having a carbon build up issue on the end of my auger tube that was never this bad though.
    I might have to adjust the auger out a bit into the burn box.

    With all the money in spare parts I'm starting to question the money saving and efficiency of pellet stove.

    Well I have some spare parts on hand but luckily have never needed any. You don't need to stock any if you have a backup heat source. All stoves will at sometime break down, just like cars. Once you get into burning pellets it just drives most of us nuts when we hear the oil burner kick in so we fix our own as quickly as possible.
