    Stove pipe question.

    Hi Gang, My pellet stove pipe leaks. When I fire up the stove and do the flashlight test, it leaks from several spots in my pipe. I continue to put sealant all over the seams and connection points, but I just cant get it to seal tight. I don't have very much pipe. Its 4 feet tall and then a 90...

    Where can I buy high temp duct tape?

    Hi Gang, I would like to wrap a layer of tape around a couple of joints on my stove pipe. Can anyone recommend an online store where I could make a purchase? My local stores don't have it nor does Mountain View. Thank you!

    Does this end cap look right to you?

    I agree that silicone will fix it, but it looks like it was designed to let exhaust out. Why?

    Does this end cap look right to you?

    Hi Gang, So I have been smelling some exhaust in the room, so I did the flashlight test to see if I could find some smoke. I could see some coming out from the end cap on the T that connects to the back of my stove. Look at this design. It appears to be made to allow smoke out. There are 4...

    I bought my stove on craigslist for $400. It is a St. Croix Prescott. No complaints. It might be worth taking a look on craigslist.

    Where can I get the best deal on a combustion fan?

    Got my Combustion Fan from stove-parts-unlimited.com yesterday. Just wanted to give a quick shout out to those folks! Fast and free shipping! Great price! Installed it last night. Required me to dis-assemble the stove more than I would have preferred, but not that big of a deal. Stove is...

    How do I fit my combustion fan in my stove?

    Hi Gang, I am trying to replace the combustion fan on my St Croix Prescott. I got the old one out by using force. I hate to use force to install the new motor. Can anyone give me some tips on how best to fit this thing back in? Do I need to take off the back of the stove and do a fair amount...

    Heaters or Nature's Harvest from HD

    No complaints about Heaters. They work great for me. I don't really notice much difference between brands. I only buy the cheap stuff though.

    Do most big box stores in your area still have plenty of pellets? Mine did as of two weeks ago.

    Heatr's

    I bought a couple bags of Heatr's. I was pleased, so I went back and bought a bunch more. I must agree that the AWF White Pines do burn noticeably hotter, but are more money. Cant go wrong I guess.

    New to this and need help!

    I found mine on Craigslist for 480 bucks including every bit of piping I needed. It was in need of a good cleaning. Works great so far! I would think you could find a nice insert for far less than 2K. Here are a couple of choices in CT. (Not sure where you are.)...

    Pellet Chute for basement

    Could you recruit a couple of High School kids to shuttle the bags to the basement? Pay them 10 bucks an hour or something? Would the flimsy pellet bags survive the ride down the shoot? If a few of them rip, that could be a pain.
