    Seems that Palazzetti isn`t sold by that dealer anymore. He now sells Rika.

    These look like really interesting stoves. There was one on the truck the day my insert was installed. The crew was heading to put that in after mine. Wonder if the person ever made their way to these forums.

    I know this thread is old but that stove looks and performs nicely! :)
    Yeah at my place it might seem a little out of place with my country rustic finished house, but still is a beauty. I was even thinking maybe it would look good in my more modern finished kitchen. However the hopper size is a big dealbreaker for me... during most of the heating season that wouldnt even last until I got home from work I don't think. If its below 35ºF and I don't have the wood stove going then my pellet stove is running pretty high, I've measured it at 4.25 lbs/hr on a 7 setting which is about as high as I dare run it continuously. I'm about 14hrs door to door for work so that's about 60 lbs. Now this unit is more efficient, but is it 33% more efficient than my stove? It would be close...

    The again I got the 120# model not just to run during the day but to be able to go away for a whole weekend (at least with the stove set on minimal heat)...

    The small hopper is a drawback on the small foot print euro stoves. Although compared to my past stoves, Whitfields and Quadrafires, the efficiency is very good. Heating most of the downstairs of my 1950 cape (1450 sq. feet).

    I used 2.5 tons of pellets last year during the coldest winter on record in upstate NY and that is from October 15, April 15th. On power level #4 which is probably the equivalent of you level 7, one bag of pellets last 20-22 hours. Normally I run on level 3, 24/7 and a bag lasts 30-34 hours.
    In your case, you really need the big hopper. I can tell you, the stove has saved me a great deal in heating costs.. In your case a big hopper is essential, mine not so much!

    Wow 2.5 tons during the coldest winter... nice! Not sure if I'd call Hyde Park upstate though, thats what we'd call downstate (originally from around Watertown area, and other family as far north as Massena). Northern NY can be brutal both temps and snow. If you can get 30-34 hours on a bag on level 3 that sounds like it would last just fine for me. Whats it do on a 1? While I got my stove in case of being gone over the weekend that is pretty rare (its mainly the 14hr day at work I'm worried about). The lowest my stove seems to be able to burn (despite the 1.5# spec) is around 2# per hour. My main problem is my house! Its just so poorly insulated, drafty, and not layed out well for heating. I've already been through a ton, and heated with my wood stove as well on several days below 30ºF. I think if I built a new house per my spec, designed well, and super insulated... and got a really efficient stove I would be in heaven! 2.5T/yr sounds almost like a myth to me!

    Well...Watertown is way upstate. I had to meet a friend in Loweville a few weekends ago, like it up there.I am a snowmobiler and yes, brutal winters in your upstate neck of the woods! We both have the same problem, old houses with poor insulation. If I use good quality like Okies, on power level #1 ( .8 LB/HR.) stove will run for 40 Hours if left ON. In auto economy mode where the stove cycles itself on and off, 50-60 hours @ 10K BTUs

    Hello Phil do fire,
    I hope you had a good luck with you stove. Mine was going strong tell hours ago when the elongated drum fan on the back suddenly started making loud noise ( the one that bushes the hot air in the room). I am trying desperately to fine this part online, I took it apart and seems the motor for the fan is about to die.
    Do you know any palizzetti Ecofire Prima dealers in the U.S. that sells parts?. Thanks and Happy New Year. image.jpg
    This is a picture of the fan's stickers.

    I'd start a new thread, as well as search for old threads for online parts.

    Yes Phil thanks for the reply,
    I tried to fix the fan last night, from what I see is that there are two orange silicon or rubber parts at both end shaft of the drum, the one that is close to the motor has a torn end that prevent the drum fan from moving from left to right( if I could replace this part I think I could solve the issue). The motor itself gets very hot also. I will call the numbers you provided tomorrow. Thanks and happy New Year.

    Sounds like Phil has you squared away- I wouldn't be much help anyway, I am a Piazzetta dealer but not Palazzetti. Happy new year!

    But those fan numbers are very close to the Piazzettas.

    BTW, do you know anything about a new stainless grate that was shown at last year's Western dealers show? I vaguely recall that it was supposed to be available this season.

    The Piazetta is a copy of the Palazzetti, some components are the same

    Thanks friends for the feedback, today I'll call Karen at the stove shop hoping to find the part. It has been unpleasant without the pellette stove . You can not compere forced hot air heat with pellette stove heat. Speaking of tonage I used 6 tons of pellettes last year and this year I orded the same. Happy New Year.

    Hi Phil, How do you fix that torn orange rubber part?. (It is attached to motor shaft by friction grip only) I glued it to the rotating motor shaft, but the heat deteriorates the glue bond and the wide flow fan starts hitting the side creating loud noise. Please Phil tell me the fix , thanks.
