The Jamestown J1000 Pellet Stove

The Jamestown J1000 is a very slim stove, only thirteen and a half inches deep, which is suitable for fitting into small spaces. Because the stove is so slim, the insert can sit on a hearth pad and not penetrate the fireplace depth at all. ( See comments below)

The J1000 produces 38,000 btu. and is rated to heat 1,800 square feet. It has a maximum burn time of thirty eight hours which can be extended to seventy two hours with a hopper extension.

This stove has a large choice of options, including two leg styles or a pedestal base, an etched picture in the glass viewing window, and a steel carpet/floor protective plate. See options below. Also included as standard is a brick effect fireback.

The burnpot is heavy duty cast iron.

The Jamestown J1000 has no ash pan or ash drawer. Ashes must be scooped out of the ash dump.

The figure of 88% overall efficiency seems high and probably relates to an optimal burn rate.

Unlike the specs say, the depth is NOT 13.5 inches. it is in fact 21 " deep. I called Jamestown about this and they said the standard way of measuring is without the door and the 2" addition on the back.



Clean the burnpot and glass air wash bracket


Clean out ash, clean the heat exchanger, clean inside the firebox.

After every ton of fuel

Clean ash from internal stove venting.


Clean the combustion and convection blowers and the back of the stove. Check and clean the flue.
