The stove has a large, attractive arched viewing window which shows the herringbone brick effect steel firebox back as well as the fire with its realistic log set.

It comes with a thermostat as standard, with the option of corded or cordless remote controls.

This stove can burn shelled corn as well as wood pellets. The advised mix is 50:50 but corn can be used by itself. See Comments below.

If using corn without pellets as fuel in the Quadrafire Santa Fe, the corn won't automatically reignite unless it has some wood pellets mixed in. This means it's necessary to keep the stove on.

To keep the stove running, set the thermostat to maximum. Set the stove itself to low or medium so that the thermostat doesn't get tripped.



Empty and clean the burn pot


Empty ash pan, clean ash from firebox, clean window glass


Clean beneath the heat exchanger, check the door latch and gasket, clean the heat exchanger and drop tube, clean the hopper.

Every Year:

Clean the blowers, the exhaust passages and the flue. Clean out the firebox.
