    We just bought an Englander corn/pellet stove and we are having a hell of time getting it to heat up a medium size room. We need advise as to what we are doing wrong. Maybe it is the settings? Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated. The model number 10-CDV it is lighting but it is not getting hot. We are using pellets and we have also try corn.

    If you post which unit you have, Mike or myself should be able to get you all straightened out. Is it a 10-CDV or a 10-CPM? The former is a non-autolighting corn/pellet stove, and the latter is an autolighting multi-fuel stove. Either unit is a capable heater and should be able to heat your room sufficiently. Can you describe the problem in more detail? IE, are you getting the stove lit properly, or are you having a hard time even maintaining a fire? Are you burning corn or pellets?

    We have a 10-CDV unit, it is not an auto lit stove although it is a combination stove (corn and pellet). So far we have been able to light and maintain the fire for days but it is not heating the room sufficiently or the house. When we purchased the stove we were told that it would heat 2200 sq. feet and so far it has not been able to heat even 400 sq. feet. It is slightly putting out heat but not enough. Please help.

    From the owners manual at Englanders web site "WARNING: USE OF OUTSIDE AIR IS MANDATORY WITH THIS UNIT." .. Do you have an an outside air kit connected to your stove because it could be starving for an air source..

    Is this a new or used stove that you bought?

    Please describe your installation in detail, or post some pictures. Do you have the outside combustion air connection hooked up? Are you burning pellets or corn? What heat range and blower speed are you running the stove on?

    Post your Model and Stuff on here But I would just call Englander with your Model Number, Serial Number and Date of Manufacter. they will steer you right. I'm in your area where did you buy your stove, if you don't mind me asking.
