You may have heard that a gas-burning insert is the way to go if you're looking to find an efficient and environmentally-friendly secondary heat source. But the truth is, there's an even better option. This US Stove Corn and Pellet Burning Fireplace Insert offers the same kind of efficiency and convenience as gas-fueled appliances, but with a heating capacity usually only found in wood-burning models.
Really, it's true. Just look at the numbers. This US Stove Corn and Pellet Burning Fireplace Insert can use anything from compressed wood pellets to cherry pits to warm a 2,000 sq. ft. space. It produces up to 52,300 BTUs of heat per hour and features a 78% efficiency rating.
Don't let yourself get tricked into thinking that you have to buy a gas appliance in order to add economical heat and an inviting ambiance to your home. This US Stove Corn and Pellet Burning Fireplace Insert is more powerful than your average gas insert and, because it uses what are essentially waste products as fuel, will cost you far less to operate. And, when it comes right down to it, why would you want to spend more money on gas? Isn't your high gas bill what inspired you to get a fireplace insert in the first place?

I have an existing builder grade wood burning fireplace in the wall in my house now. I want to remove it, (if required by code), and install your corn and pellet burning insert. Can I adapt the insert chimney pipe to my existing fireplace pipe?
By eFireplaceStore on September 25, 2014
The existing chimney pipe could be relined for use with the pellet insert without an issue. There are also adapters that allow the connection of the pellet piping to some brands of chimney systems, but I will need to know the brand of fireplace you are venting to be sure there is an adapter made for yours. If the unit is against an outside wall, another option would be to abandon the chimney and vent the unit horizontally through the wall.

What is the smallest opening that this insert will fit into?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on April 18, 2014
This item requires a width of 40 inches, a height of 24 inches, and a depth of 20 inches. This stands for both masonry and manufactured units.

We just installed this insert. It will burn fine at first, then we cannot see a flame and smoke will build up inside the chamber. Are we doing something wrong or is this the nature of this insert?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 9, 2012
If the unit continues to operate and does not shut down during this occurrence, the issue is most likely due to lack of combustion air. Opening the air damper a bit further will most likely alleviate the issue.

Can this fit in my fireplace? My fireplace dimension is: 30W x 19H x 17D.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 15, 2014
Unfortunately, this insert will not be able to fit into your fireplace opening. Currently, we do not offer any pellet or multi-fuel inserts that are small enough to fit into your opening. I apologize that I do not carry a unit to fit your application.

If the electricity goes out, is there a way to operate this unit manually?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 14, 2013
Unfortunately, no. Due to the many electronic components used in this heater, it must have a power source to operate. The unit can be used on generator power, as long as surge protection is provided to protect the electronics.

I am very interested in this stove. We are looking to replace our wood burning insert after ten years. How quiet is the blower and the augar burner. We have a mantel above the stove with a TV built on the wall over the fireplace. My concern is the quality of this stove...please help inform me.
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 6, 2014
This insert is a high-quality unit and one of our most popular pellet appliances. The blower and auger make enough noise to be heard, but they are not overly noisy to the point of distraction.

How would we find someone to install this fireplace and what else would we need to purchase?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 17, 2012
This is a corn and pellet insert that is meant only for installation inside an existing masonry fireplace and chimney. The only additional item(s) needed for installation can be found in the "Venting Components" tab above. You will need to run stainless steel chimney liner from the insert to the top of your chimney.
We are an online-only retailer and we do not offer installation services. For your reference, you can find out more about installation, including how to find a suitable contractor or installation specialist, using our Fireplace and Wood Stove Installation Guide.

The auger in my pellet burning fireplace is running but won't release the fuel? What could be the problem? How would I trouble shoot this?
By eFireplaceStore on February 20, 2015
It would seem there there is a jam or the auger set screw is loose. Have you visually checked that the auger itself is turning? In some cases, a loose set screw will keep the auger from turning, although the motor will run all the same. If the auger is turning, there may be a jam at the bottom of the hopper, which is keeping pellets from feeding into the hopper.

What are the dimensions of the firebox opening?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 6, 2014
Per the manufacturer, the door opening for this model is 16 inches by 18 inches, taken at the tallest point of the door arch.

Can this insert be used in a pre-fabricated fireplace?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 27, 2014
I would recommend researching thoroughly to determine the parts you will need to install the insert. We converted a fireplace for it and had to purchase additional piping to install it properly. Installation was simple once we had all the parts. The unit is very quiet and easy to use. It provides a very attractive accent to the room.
Initial Issues Resolved

I would recommend this item to a friend.
After some initial hiccups, this has proved to be a good pellet stove. We tried to order the four-inch chimney pipe, but there was some sort of problem, and we had to purchase it from another company. We also experienced some electrical issues during the installation process, but the manufacturer was very helpful and directed us how to fix a loose connection that had occurred during shipping. We use it constantly on level one or two. There is a bit of a whistling sound on the higher levels. It uses a little more than one bag of pellets each day.

I have used this stove since November, about four months. It is very easy to operate with a simple on button. About ten minutes after pressing the button, heat will start being produced. There are different brands of pellets to choose from and there are significant variations between them. Some produce more heat while others go through fuel more quickly.
Fairly Good Pellet Insert

I would recommend this item to a friend.
When I realized that there were multiple fireplaces in my new home, I decided to add a pellet insert to one of them. I had previously used a freestanding pellet stove, so I was familiar with their operation. A few of the connections came loose during shipping, so I had to fix that before using it. It is doing well as the main heat source for my 2100 square foot house. It has not dropped below 25 degrees outside yet, but I expect it will continue to perform well. Wood pellets are my fuel of choice, so I really don't know how the stove would do with corn as its fuel. I would rate it between three and four stars.
