The Thelin Gnome Wood Pellet Stove
The Thelin Gnome is a charming small pellet stove that looks for all the world like a traditional pot bellied wood stove. The interior workings provide all the convenience of a pellet stove.
Capable of heating up to 750 square feet, (a small home or cabin), the Gnome produces 31,300 btu. and is available in six porcelain ceramic colours.
The hopper on this stove will hold 26 lbs. of wood pellets and it can burn for 26 hours on one fill. It's the smaller brother of the Parlour
The convection and combustion fans in this stove both run from one motor, which has the advantage of quiet operation and extremely low electrical power consumption, (27 watts).
Battery backup is built in to the Thelin Gnome - all you need is a twelve volt power lead and a deep cycle battery. The battery will automatically be trickle charged. A thermostat is available as an option.

Automatic ignition will not function when running on twelve volt supply.
In a neat bit of design, the combustion and convection fans both run directly from the same motor with blades of different pitch.
When running on a twelve volt supply, the stove will not ignite automatically if the thermostat shuts it down. It must be set to cycle between high and low.
Weekly: Clean out the stove and hopper with an ash vacuum. Clean the viewing glass. Clean the exhaust fan blades and the heat exchanger. Clean the air intake fan guard.
Monthly: Check the clean out tee and the venting for a build up of fly ash.
The 'Gnome' has a 'clean' setting which uses its fan to clean the combustion housing and the fan blades making this very easy.
