    Well I’m going to put new bearings in the old fan assembly and keep it on the shelf. Invariably the fan will go out during the coldest weather.

    New Enviro M55 FS stove owner

    Well I had to order another distribution fan. This will be the third. I can tell the fan is on it's way out- the bearing is making all hells kind of noise and the velocity of the output air is dropping. I can say that is certainly the weak link in this unit. This will be the third fan in 9...

    M55 Auger and Rust Removal

    Nice. That's a good write-up. I think I'm going to go through a thorough disassembly like that at the end of this burning season..

    P61 in the basement

    I've tried passive venting in our old home we built in 1999 back in WV. Didn't work as intended. The heat boxed into the basement and didn't rise with small vents.. I remember our farmhouse in Ohio, built in 1880's.. It used to have a coal furnace in the cellar, and right above that between...

    Cleaned the unit and fired it up. Been anywhere from the 30's-40's during the day and teens-20's at night. It seems as though the fan isn't quite pumping out the volume as before. I may cycle it off and tear it down and see if the fan is dirty or needs attention. This will be season 8 (if I...

    Well 28 degrees and a blizzard. The M55 is back in service today..

    Alright, I give in..

    http://www.hearthtools.com/parts/2004enviroTrouble.pdf See page 22 for igniter troubleshooting. Should be pretty generic to a lot of models. Note that it does say "check the fuses in the circuit". I don't know if there is a fuse or not, but I would suspect an ignitor that draws amps would have...

    Enviro M55 cast iron pellet stove questions

    I hear you. We burned wood for a long time, but when we moved to MT I figured a pellet stove would make more sense, and it has. Less mess, less time and pretty clean heat. Yes- I'm all about Spring right now, lol.

    Enviro M55 cast iron pellet stove questions

    For whatever its worth, we have a FS M55 and at single digits to below zero we run it on '3' with a feed trim of 2 or 3 and we will typically burn 2 or more bags in a 24 hour cycle. House is 20 years old, fairly well insulated and it stays at Oh my GOD it's hot in the family room basement to...

    Hey look at post #90 from someone posting in this thread about a worn agitator rod AND they were burning corn! New Enviro M55 FS stove owner

    New Enviro M55 FS stove owner

    Holy CARP!! That rod is worn thin as heck! Mine looks brand new compared to that! Something is not right. With it worn in the middle like that I'd wonder if the corn is too abrasive for the metal, or if the burn pot is so hot that it weakens the metal.. WOW!!

    New Enviro M55 FS stove owner

    Well we’ve had two pretty brutal nights, Sunday night / Mon a.m. was -36, and last night -30. Never got above 0 yesterday. Stove setting is on ‘3’. Any higher and you literally cannot spend more than a few minutes in the downstairs family room. Upstairs, with only the pellet stove running...

    When do you buy your bulk pellets?

    So I kinda got burned but it ended with a happy story. I went to go get pellets from my local Super One grocery store- they carry the Idaho Supreme Premium fir pellets I like. Been burning them for 5 years or so. Sold. Out. Went to Lowes. Sold Out. Went to Home Despot Sold Out. There was...

    Crazy 2018/2019 winter temps

    Meh- I was out ice fishing in -15 yesterday. Unfortunately we’re used to this crud, lol. I’d love to have a pellet stove in my shanty :)

    When do you buy your bulk pellets?

    No one here stocks pellets in the off season unless they are hold overs. And I’ve not run into any place offering bulk deals. The margin on pellet prices are pretty slim. One farm and feed store stopped carrying my fav brand when the chain grocery store picked them up- couldn’t afford to store...
