Needs Movable Grates
November 7, 2013
I got my stove and was very disappointed to find that the grates are stationary, thereby making it more difficult to remove the ashes. Also there was no sliding plate to cut off air supply on the ash door. When I called and asked why there wasn't one I was told that it was to meet EPA regulations. Who knows more about making stoves? You or the EPA? How is the thermostat supposed to work with unlimited air going into the firebox? I had to fabricate my own sliding door in order to shut down the air supply. It works much better with the modifications I made.

Great Stove After You Fix It
January 2, 2013
Its got holes in the fire box door and the ash tray door for the epa i guess. But after fixing them with bolts and washers its much more efficient. Five stars so for due to to epa design limits. But 4 stars because there is a tab sticking out of the door opening i have cut my hand on several times and i have decided it doesn't serve any purpose so tomorrow I'm going to knock it over with a hammer.
Pros:
Very efficient after epa holes are fixed
Cons:
Bleeding fingers

Heats Well, But ...
July 7, 2010
Nice stove, heats the house nicely. A couple of complaints: Iím not a fan of the thumb-sized holes on the ash pan and wood doors. Also, be careful when opening the ash pan dooróthe ashes fall out! Messy!

Nice Sheet Metal Casing
August 24, 2009
Iíve shopped around for stoves, and this one is my choice. I like the fact that the circulator gets the heat all throughout the house. I have little kids, too, so especially like the casing, which is sheet metal and is less likely to burn little fingers.

Does this stove need a damper installed or do all Ashleys burn without a damper ?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on January 19, 2012

Wood burning appliances, such as this, do not use any damper in their chimney system. There is, however, an inlet air damper to control the quantity of air drawn into the appliance.

By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 31, 2013

Answer:
This circulator is indeed the closest replacement to the old C60-D and is almost identical in size and design, save for a few updates that have been made to increase efficiency and ease of operation. Your C60-D may or may not have an automatic air control thermostat. The new BEC95 will have this feature as standard.

Is this a single wall heater or a double wall heater?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on August 16, 2013

Answer:
This unit can utilize single-wall stovepipe in the room, then transition to double-wall class A chimney pipe at the ceiling or at the wall.

By Vicki from Oklahoma on November 17, 2012
How can you turn heat down on the stove when you constantly have air flow through door and ash door? We have the thermostat as low as possible and it is still really hot. On our old one there were no holes in the door and you could shut it down. That doesn't seem to work on this one.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 19, 2012

Answer:
Unfortunately, it is not possible to achieve as low of a burn as you could with your previous circulator. In order to comply with stricter EPA guidelines, the manufacturer drilled holes in the door of the unit to allow more air flow. This keeps the unit from producing as much soot by limiting how low of a burn can be obtained.

However, it is possible to plug the holes by using appropriately size stainless steel bolts, washers, and nuts. This is the only way to modify the unit to achieve the low burn you are looking for.

What should dimensions be for floor to be heat resistant, and what pipe do you use
if you don't want a chimney? The type I would like to use is to pipe straight thru the roof. Would
that be possible? Also, should the back wall be fire resistant, and how big should it be?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 9, 2012

Answer:
For stove positioning and clearances to walls and combustibles, please see page 2 of the owner's manual at the following link:

US Stove Ashley Black Wood Burning Circulator

As you can see, the back wall does not have to be fire-resistant, you just need 28" of clearance from the wall to the stove.

Floor protection requirements can be found on page 4 of that same link.

This stove can be vented with stovepipe in the room where it is installed, but you must transition to class A chimney pipe 18" before you get to the ceiling or the wall, however you plan to run your chimney system. You must terminate the class A pipe at least 3 feet above your roof and possibly more. If you need a quote for piping this unit, please see our Quote Request Form here:

By rick from Winsted, CT on November 12, 2012
Why is this not recommended for a modular home?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 13, 2012

Answer:
Primarily due to its lack of provisions for combustion air, which is required by building code for installation of a stove in a mobile home. We do offer several wood stoves that are mobile home approved, but we do not carry a circulator that has the approval.

By zach from pell city Alabama on October 31, 2011
Do you know anywhere to get or find a wood buring circulator for a mobile home?
By Kevin E. on November 1, 2011

Answer:
Due to the inefficient nature of these circulators, it is my understanding that there are no styles that are mobile home approved. However, we do have a selection of free standing wood stoves that can be used in your application.

By Carl from Atlanta GA on January 30, 2013
I am curious about the wood burning circulator. How does it work? Is it attached to a chimney at the top or rear?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 30, 2013

Answer:
Circulators function in a similar fashion to a wood stove, but use a sheet metal body and are side loading. They also use a rear flue collar and have a cooking grid that is hidden under a top door. Circulators do an excellent job of convecting heat on their own, however a blower can also be used to increase efficiency of the unit.

I have this stove. Can I use the Vogelzang 6" Barometric Damper for 6" Single Wall Flue Pipes - BD-06?
By eFireplaceStore on July 29, 2014

Answer:
A barometric damper can indeed be used with this circulator. The damper component can be rotated to accommodate installation in a vertical or horizontal part of the vent run.
By Chris C. on July 29, 2014

Answer:
The Vogelzang 6" Barometric Damper for 6" Single Wall Flue Pipes can indeed be added to the stove pipe if the heater burns too rapidly or overheats due to excessive draft.

We bought a home that was built in 1970 and it has a Wood Burning Circulator Model 7150 B and serial # F129331383 from the Ashley Automatic Heater Co. We are trying to determine how far from a combustible wall (2 or 3 inches of masonry on the wall and 1.5 to 2 inches of masonry on the floor) that the heater should be positioned. I would appreciate any help you can give me since the circulator is so old even though it is in great condition since it was in a vacation home and was a backup system to another circulator in the home.

Answer:
While I do not have specific information for the model in question, U.S. Stove did purchase Ashley Heater and continues to produce a few circulators, such as this model, under the Ashley name.

This model only requires 1/4" of clearance to a masonry floor, but will require 8" of clearance to a masonry protected wall. Are there any combustible materials in the wall behind the masonry or is this a solid masonry wall?

I have a pre-fab fireplace with chimney pipe. Can you vent one of these through the fire place. Similar to a hearth stove?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on February 17, 2012

Answer:
This type of venting system could indeed be accomplished. This appliance needs a venting system with a diameter of 6". The appliance would require solid connection to the existing chimney system. Please refer to page 3 of the manual on this item page for more information.

The holes on the ash door, are they needed for proper operation? Can you swap it out for a solid ash door?

By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 27, 2011

Answer:
Per U.S. Stove, the ash door does indeed come with several perforations in order to help the unit meet EPA requirements.

The unit is not available with a solid doors any longer, as the airflow is needed for the unit to meet efficiency standards that have been set into place.

I'm very interested in these types of stoves but we live in a mobile home. Is there a stove like this that can be put in a mobile home? Is there a way to make this mobile home proof?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 4, 2014

Answer:
The primary reason these units are not approved for use in a mobile or manufactured home is due to their lack of dedicated provisions for combustion air. Current code requires that a combustion air supply is provided to any wood or coal heater installed in a mobile home. While the heater would function perfectly well, this lack of air provision excludes them from your installation. They cannot be modified to meet this code unfortunately.

With this item, can it be used in a mobile home if used with a fresh air kit on it?
By Chris M. on November 3, 2011

Answer:
Unfortunately, not. These units are not designed to be used in a mobile home regardless of their access to combustion air.

I am really considering this Ashley wood burning stove. I remember reading that U.S. Stove bought out Ashley. Would this stove have the name Ashley on it as described in the picture? Here in central Oklahoma, we can't find any wood burning stoves that meet our satisfaction. Our old Ashley has been wonderful but as happens, it got old. We are looking for something similar to yours. Do you really offer free shipping? I am impressed with your page and your answers.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 3, 2013

Answer:
U.S. Stove did indeed purchase the Ashley product line and continues to manufacture the circulators under the Ashley brand name. Because of their dependable design and durability, they have not changed in many years. We do indeed offer free freight shipping to your area.

I would like to put in a wood heating system that I could put in the garage and have a radiator in the central air duct to heat the house. Does this sound like something you carry?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 10, 2013

Answer:
Based on your description, you may be best to use a supplemental wood furnace. This system is designed to be placed adjacent to your existing forced air furnace or can be ducted in line to your furnace supply. An example of such a furnace is the US Stove Hotblast Coal and Wood Burning Furnace with Blower. The other stoves that we offer do not have an effective take off system to heat the air in the duct.
