The Thelin Parlour Pellet Stove

The Thelin Parlour wood pellet stove is the bigger brother of the Gnome. It's an ornate pot-belly style stove with the convenience of operating on wood pellets.

Capable of heating up to 1,500 square feet, the Parlour produces 40,000 btu. and is available in six porcelain ceramic colours.

The hopper on this stove will hold 40 lbs. of wood pellets and it can burn for 30 hours on one fill using the low heat setting.

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 Parlour - 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 'Parlour' has a 'clean' setting which uses its fan to clean the combustion housing and the fan blades making this very easy.
