The Englander 25-PDVC was originally designed in 1998 and updated in 2004. Many thousands of units have been made.
England's Stove Works deliberately design their stoves with easy home maintenance in mind using standard tools.This pellet stove uses the standard englander double auger system. The top auger runs intermittently depending on the required burn rate and allows pellets to drop to the lower auger which runs continuously to feed the burn pot.
This stove has no ash pan. Waste ash must be scooped into a suitable fireproof container.
An outside air kit is required when installing this stove.
An electrical surge protector is Recommended.

The Englander 25-pdvc needs regular maintenance to prevent problems arising, particularly paying attention to carbon build up around the front of the auger and its tube which can bind the auger, cause the lower auger motor to overheat, and create a squeaking noise in operation.
Scrape burn pot clean.
Every Three Days:
Inspect burn pot, clean wear plate, clean out air holes.
Clean ash from behind the baffle plate, scrape creosote from the front of the auger and tube (this can bind the bottom auger and cause a squeaking noise). Remove ash build up from flue pipes.
Remove and clean the burn pot, replace the gasket. Clean the combustion blower and its tube, replace gasket. Inspect flue and clean if necessary.
Every Two Years:
Replace the door gasket.
