Hi All - The cool weather has been well under way up here in northern Massachusetts, and I've been using my Sabrina stove quite frequently. You know, the stove that nearly drove me to complete insanity last winter. Well, at the risk of jinxing myself, I'm pleased to report, that the stove has been performing exceptionally well this season. In fact, I've been able to reset the parameters pretty much back to the factory settings, with absolutely no issues regarding poor combustion, clinkers or anything else for that matter. After 2 or 3 days of solid use, regardless if I use premium hardwood or soft wood pellets, the only thing left in the burn pot and ashtray, is a fine, powdery ash. As I joked in another thread, there's the phenomenon called horse-whispering, and there's also what I now believe to be stove-whispering. Because aside from all of the great advice I received from the members of this forum (especially Pascal), something unexplained has put matters to rights with this stove. Ok, enough Shirley MacLaine for now.
