    general overall attitude towards pellet stoves these days

    To help with your rant Scott the problems don't end with the pellet stove industry. I work rotating 24hr shifts, and my customers are big companies and small city governments with sensitive electronic equipment who expect me to tell them before lightning strikes their area so they can be...

    What to use to cover burn pot holes?

    Which holes did you cover up and what changes did you notice afterward?

    Ohio Issues State of Emergency for Fuel.

    That's what I was thinking. I don't think HHO and diesel cross paths in the way you think. They are close cousins but they are traded in different markets so there is a delay in the effect that one has on the other. I used to be an energy trader but never worked with liquid fuel products...

    Ohio Issues State of Emergency for Fuel.

    The governor has issued a state of emergency due to low supplies of HHO and propane. Is pellet fuel low there as well? How are you all faring with the constant bombardment of cold air? Almost every storm so far has missed NM this season and we're in a rather unique situation this year...

    My Sabrina just went nuts

    I'm leaning more towards the board just goofing up. It may not do it again but for peace of mind go ahead and do a reset anyway. The time and date won't have to be reset but you will have to set up your energy saver settings again.

    My Sabrina just went nuts

    Was the stove set on energy saver or room temp? If it was on energy saver then when you dropped the set temp it should have flashed "energy saver ok," and started the standby process. If not using energy saver the stove should have moved to P1 and would not have fed as many pellets. Check your...

    NH Ch9 forecast of -12 Deg F - Can your stove handle it? or what supplemental heat will you use?

    The wife and I stocked up on enough beer and beef at Costco to hold us for 2 weeks. I put a Prime Rib in the smoker for the first time this Christmas. Wow that was heaven.

    Propane Delivery

    My propane bill has dropped by $400/month consistently this season. I haven't even lit the boiler yet.

    My fan speeds are 2200 2330 2450 2580 and 2700 rpms. With all the winter action your state has been getting lately you need those higher BTU outputs.!!!

    MCZ Pellet Stove - Error A10 - Burner Failure (not)

    I agree that you may not want to get invasive, especially since the stove is so new and still under warranty. When you get it fixed let us know how the problem was resolved. MCZ, and Piazzetta's are slowly carving a niche for themselves in the U.S. as well.

    MCZ Pellet Stove - Error A10 - Burner Failure (not)

    I just went through your manual and two things point to an A10 error. The first cause is due to the remote but as the manual states the stove should still run. The second cause has to do with the igniter. I understand that the stove lights and runs for 20min. The manual also states that the...

    That's hard to beat. What does the dealer think of Piazzetta's? Have they come across any feedback from customers or servicers?

    Hopefully your friend is correct. On page 5 of the manual it states: "To ensure trouble-free operation the stove must have the necessary air available for combustion and this is provided through the fresh air intake. The fresh air intake must: -- have a total free cross section at least equal...

    Interesting that you can't take the feed rate up to 12. I think that you'll be able to get 5.9 lbs/hr.

    Congratulations. May it provide years of trouble free warmth. Being in Canada I'm assuming that you will have an OAK (oustide air kit) installed. If you have a ceiling fan turn it on low in the reverse direction and it will help push some of that warm air from those 20ft ceilings back down to...

    It's comprised of the Sandia Mountain, Manzano Mountain, Sedillo Hill and surrounding areas east of Albuquerque. The ski resort is on Sandia. I live on top of Sedillo hill. Taos is in the Enchanted Circle 3hrs north of Albuquerque. Taos skiing is a hidden treasure that New Mexicans would...

    Have you tried increasing the feed rate and combustion blower speed? You may be able to get a larger BTU output/hr. Yep. Gotta love Mammoth. Our local ski resort is 10 min from my house. I moved from the eastern mountains of San Diego a few years back to the "East Mountains" of NM and there...

    I'm on pace for 4.25lbs per hour or 34000BTU. I found a reference from the National Fuel Gas Code that states: "For elevations above 4,500 feet, input ratings should be reduced 4 percent for each 1,000 feet above sea level." Being over 7000ft this is right inline with what my stove is able to...

    I'm about halfway through and the sun has gone down so I'll keep going. It also gives me a chance to test 2 different brands of pellets in more of a controlled experiment rather than casually like I've been doing.

    Yes. How much of an effect it has I'm not sure. I haven't ever been able to hold the factory settings at P5. I can do it on the first level but I have the fan up to 2200rpm. The house was sitting at 80 deg inside 39 outside. I opened up some windows to keep it from getting any warmer. Flue...

    I'm unable to maintain the 7.6. I had to back it down and the best I can get is 6.6 at P5. The flame gets way too lazy and won't eject the ash so the burnpot keeps filling. This was with the fan nearly maxed out at 2780rpm. Almost 2hrs in. Chken, do you know what your flue temp was while...

    How many square feet are you trying to heat? How tall are the ceilings? When you say old schoolhouse I'm assuming not good insulating qualities or have you updated it? The Mini and the Monia are both great stoves. You can't go wrong with either choice. The Mini has a very small footprint and...

    It is strange but I've found a lot of typos in this manual. I also got a list of factory feed rate settings from a Sabrina user in Italy earlier today and he had the same ones. Page 20: "On the left side the period of pellet feed time in s/12sec period. " I took the 5.7 lb/hr divided by...

    I think I figured it out. The values for the factory settings for the Monia 4p to 10p and 16p-22p should be the Sabrina rates. The neg pressures recommendations and all of the other columns are fine. Its just the factory setting column numbers that are in the wrong place. I did a reset and...

    Snow Storm ! ! ! How much are you getting and How high are you cranking your stove?

    That one missed us thankfully. Finally got the black ice on our driveway melted enough that my wife didn't have to use chains to get up to the main road. Outside 30 deg. inside 72.
