The air damper on the Pelpro Freestanding pellet stove must be adjusted manually to suit the burn rate.

If using an optional thermostat in on/off mode, there are concerns that the life of the igniter may be shortened through increased use.

Hopper extensions are not available for the insert, which has no ash drawer.

Although the manual says a mix of corn and pellets may be used, the warranty says only wood pellets may be used.


Every two or three days

Clean the burn grate and burn pot, clean the heat exchanger tubes, empty the ash pan,

Every one or two tons of fuel

Check the door gasket, clean the air intake, combustion and convection fans, check the hopper for a build up of fines, clean out the stove ash traps.


Inspect and clean the flue vent, vacuum the hopper.
