    Does anyone have any experiences with Thelin Pellet stoves? We are looking in particular at the 3000 Parlor stove!
    Thanks

    I had the Parlor 3000 non electronic ignition version and was very satisfied with it. It ran consistently with never a problem or issue. The thermostatically controlled high and low system worked perfectly for my application and when connected to a programmable thermostat, allowed even better control of the volume of pellets used, and improved control over the heat regulation when I was and wasn't there. Build quality was excellent - far superior to the Quadrafire Castille I bought at the same time (the quad interior started to rust after a couple of months of non - use, where the Thelin never had a hint of corrosion). I highly recommend the unit.

    Just curious, that's not a common complaint. Was the Thelin installed in the same location/flue as the Quad?

    The Thelin was installed in the basement - venting into 40foot chimney. The Quad is in the kitchen and using direct vent method - straight out the back wall. Both utilized at same rates, durations, and time periods, but it is the Quad that seemed most affected by environment during off season - the cast iron pieces in the back were the most affected. I now make it an annual ritual to sand and high temp paint the interior to keep it looking good, but I never had to do that with the Thelin.

    I wonder if at the end of the burn season, cleaning the inside and spraying with cooking oil (like Pam) would help?

    use WD-40 rather then cooking oil. machine oil is designed to coat metal.

    Also, I am nervous of coating with cooking oil because when it is heated, it can do funny stuff, such as form a tough polymer layer.

    (as an experiment, heat up a few drops of cooking oil in a teflon coated pan, then let it sit at room temp for a day or two. then try to get it off)
