I just got this Earth Stove HP40 and 20 feet of pipe. It ran ok at the house I am just wondering if anyone has any words of wisdom on these older stoves. Anything I should beware of on it? I have a manual for it that it came with and it seems like a pretty basic stove with manual light and manual fan speeds. Thanks for any thing anyone might know on this older stove!

No one has anything to say on these stoves at all?

You have to give people a chance. It is Thanksgiving and not everyone is on the computer. Someone with your stove type/make will chime in--just not instantaneously.

If you do a search within this forum on Earth Stove hp40, you will find a couple hits, but doesn't seem to be a lot of people who have them out there.
This is one link- https://www.hearth.com/econtent/index.php/forums/viewthread/9507/#110328 Person seems to have some experience with these stoves, maybe PM him.
I see at least one other post where it doesn't appear the guy ever got an answer.

Burning Chunk,
I have had mine since it came with my house, couple of years now. It heats up most of my house daily when it is cold. I love it, but there was no manual for it in all the house paperwork. Mine needs some maintenance but can't find a manual for it. Got a copy of your manual?
I usually put in a half hopper at about 4 in the afternoon and by 5 the house is quite toasty and lasts the rest of the evening. My heating bill is half of what it was without using the stove.
We love it. U have even had to cook on it during a storm. My small generator will run the fan and we stayed quite warm. In fact some neighbors stayed because we had heat!
Good luck with your stove.
Vicki

They're not bad. Earthstove was acquired and killed by Lennox so you'll have to get parts from a secondary source or find a dealer with old stock. They heat well, they're positive pressure which you don't see a lot of any more.

Had the stove running non stop other then to clean out the ash pan area since we got it for over a month now. It does pretty good it still is running a little rich though but i have the damper over the draft fan all the way open and am giving it as much air as it will put in the fire box. I think it is just the 25 feet of pipe that is giving it the trouble with a good clean burn. It is a old tank but does what we want it to do for our basement quite well. Thanks for the reply not many of these things out there that i can find.
