As long as I can’t get a new pellet stove until next year, I will do my best to keep my old Quadrafire 1000 running,,, It’s PRO’s are: it has a ceramic fire pot......lots of the new stoves have ‘tin’ones It is vented thru the wall horizontal,,, no ugly vertical stack needed. Has worked mostly pretty good for twelve years. CON’s: small hopper, only 40 pounds One burn rate, and that’s it. I found a owners manual for it online,,,though apparently many things were changed on mine when it was rebuilt so trying to make sense of it all. I am counting on all you Quadrafire fans to step up and help me with my problems......remember, you said this thing will last the rest of my life, so help, please.
