The Breckwell P22 Maverick Pellet Stove and Pellet Insert

The Breckwell P22 is the 'budget' model in the Breckwell range. That being said, It has all the facilities of the more expensive stoves.

The P22 provides 40,000 btu. and a burn time of up to 45 hours from the standard hopper. A hopper extension allows a capacity of 110 lbs. increasing the potential burn time to 110 hours.

This stove is supplied as the basic insert unit. You decide whether to specify a pedestal base or the leg option. The legs come in either nickel or black.

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

The P22 has a large ash capacity for a stove of this size, it is recommended to be emptied only after burning a ton of fuel. See comments below.

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 P22 not be run for more than an hour at a time on the high heat setting to prevent damage.

The hopper extension, while being a useful addition, does not improve the looks of the stove.

The P22 does not have an ash pan. Ashes must be scraped 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.
