The Breckwell P2000 Tahoe Pellet Stove And Pellet Insert

The Breckwell P2000 has a very large bay window affording an excellent view of the fire, so good that the optional brick fireback and logset are probably a necessity for the stove to look good.

This stove is modern in appearance, although first produced in 1998, and doesn't have the stepped top. It produces 50,000 btu. and will burn for 70 hours without refilling the hopper.

The P2000 has a large ash pan for a stove of this size, it is recommended to be emptied only after burning a ton of fuel. See comments below.

The control board has some trouble shooting diagnostics which, with the manual, will help to pin down possible problems.

There have been some problems with the A-E-033 convection fan seizing. This is being replaced with the C-E-029 fan. Try to make sure the newer fan is fitted.

It's recommended that the Breckwell P2000 not be run for more than one or two hours at a time on the high heat setting to prevent damage.

Ashes must be brushed or scraped into the ashpan. There is no ashpan in the insert model, ashes must be scraped out into a suitable non combustible receptacle.



Stir the burn pot, wipe the glass.


Empty the burn pot, clean the glass, brush out the combustion chamber and clean the heat exchange tubes.

Annually, or for every ton of fuel.

Empty ashes, clean interior venting, clean the blades of the combustion and convection blowers, clean the vent system, inspect the gaskets, empty and vacuum the hopper.
