Frequently Asked Questions

How much fuel does it use?

The grain stove burns approximately 1 bushel per day. This will vary with type and quality of fuel being used and personal heating preferences. An average home will use 150 to 200 bushels in a heating season.

Is a chimney required?

Can the heat be controlled?

Yes, the heat is regulated by a timed metering system which regulates the amount of fuel that is being released into the fire box. A dial located on the control panel side of the unit can be adjusted to control the amount of fuel that is metered into the fire box, in turn controlling the size of the flame and the amount of heat that is produced.

How is the stove started?

The fire box is filled approximately 2/3 full of wood pellets or wood shavings (Please do not try to ignite flame using grain in the fire box. Grain should not be used as a fire starter material).  The pellets are then ignited with an approved gel or solid fire start and the door is tightly secured.  After the door is secured, the power to the stove is turned on by setting the rocker switch to the ON position which will activate the combustion air fan that provides outside combustion air to the flame. The fuel feed control is turned to low and the room air fan control is turned to low. When the burn chamber reaches operating temperature, the auger system will be activated to release fuel into the fire box. The fuel feed is started at a low setting to allow the formation of an ember bed in the fire box, and is gradually adjusted to the desired setting. The room air fan will engage as the heat builds in the burn chamber.  The room air fan will be adjusted accordingly with the fuel feed control. Operate the stove in AUTO OFF position once the stove has reached full operating temperature (approximately 30 minutes).

How is heat circulated?

A variable speed fan circulates the air throughout the area that is being heated.  The room air fan can be set with an external control on the side of the unit and is adjusted to suit the amount of heat being produced.  If the stove is operating on a low setting, the room air fan will be set on a low to medium setting.  If the stove is operating on a medium to high setting then the fan should be set on a high speed to move the heat away from the stove and into the room being heated.

How much grain does it hold?

It holds one bushel of grain which may last for 12 to 24 hours depending on individual heating requirements and the quality of grain being used for fuel.

What area will this model heat?

The PFG-060 stove will provide up to 60,000 BTU providing heat to areas in excess of 2,000 sq. ft in a moderately well insulated building.

What types of fuel can be used?

This stove is tested and certified to burn varieties of wheat, rye, corn and wood pellets as a fuel source.   Oil seeds and grains such as oats and barley are not recommended for use in this stove.

How is the stove cleaned?

This process is complete in just minutes without interruption of the flame. When the stove is burning grain continually, a clinker must be removed approximately every 12 hours.  The clinker is the hard residue or ash remaining after the grain is burned.  Typically a small amount, approximately one cup will remain from burning a bushel of grain.  This residue contains trace minerals and potash; therefore, it may be disposed of in gardens and flower beds.

Grain Burning Stoves by Prairie Fire Grain Energy. Renewable Fuel - Virtually No Waste - love less vac

If you have ever tried to vacuum out your ashes with a vacuum cleaner only to turn around when you are done to see a cloud of ash hovering around your head then you have come to the right spot. The reason for poor suction is that the vacuum has been used and a crust of ash has formed on the outside of the primary filter and it cannot breathe properly.
