    The Caframo Ecofan Original 800CAXBX Heat Powered Stove Fan is a must have if you live in a region with harsh winters or experience regular power outages in the cold. Having a wood stove in your home is imperative to keeping warm but, as everyone knows, heat rises. That's where the Ecofan comes in. Caframo Ecofans run solely on the heat produced from your stove. That means they work even with power outages! Not to mention they help solve the issue of too much heat rising into the room. This fan creates its own electricity and pushes warm air up to 100CFM (cubic feet per minute). It works best on stoves with a surface temperature between 230 and 650 degrees Fahrenheit. Generating no additional noise during operation and coming completely assembled are two features that also make this fan a great gift. With this cordless, highly energy efficient fan, you will enjoy the power of a blower whenever your stove is hot.

    from Pickens, SC asked:
    January 11, 2017
    Would this work on a wood framed mantel over a gas log fireplace?
    2 Answers
    No, the surface temperature on which you would place the fan would have to be a minimum of 230 degrees. Your mantel should not be getting that hot.
    on January 12, 2017
    This would not work for a gas log fireplace or on a mantel.

    January 5, 2017
    We have a wood stove installed in our fireplace with not a lot of clearance for a fan on top. Are there 'shorter' versions or could this be used under the stove? We have an electric fan installed on the bottom of the stove, but I am looking for other options.
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, we do not carry a shorter universal fan.

    from Birmingham asked:
    December 29, 2016
    What do you need to operate it? Do you have to buy any fuel resource to operate it initially? Does your stove have to be on to operate it? If yes, how does it save you electric energy cost, especially if you have an electric stove. In addition, how many square feet or square meters of space can this unit warm up effectively?
    1 Answer
    This fan operates off the heat that is radiated off the stove. The heat is used to turn the blades of the fan. The fan itself does not generate it's own heat it just moves air from above the stove. This particular model moves air at a rate of 100CFM and requires the surface temp of the stove to be 200 degrees to operate. We do sell similar fans that only require 175 degrees, and other that move air at a rate of 175 CFM. What exactly are you intended applications for this fan?

    I recently ordered this Caframo Ecofan. However, I noticed in the confirmation email that the fan is powered by heat. My stove is not very hot, as there is a stone top (it is warm, not hot). Will this fan still function?
    1 Answer
    In infrared or other surface thermometer should be used to verify surface temperatures reach the required range of 230 Degrees - 650 Degrees Fahrenheit .

    from Spencerport, NY asked:
    January 7, 2016
    Will these Caframo Ecofan original 800CAXBX heat powered stove fans work if placed on top of a cast iron steam radiator?
    2 Answers
    They would indeed operate if the radiator has a flat and level surface reaching temperatures of at least 230 degree F. I would first recommend using an infrared thermometer to confirm the surface temperature to further confirm. If the temperature is lower, you may consider the Caframo Ecofan CA 806 Heat Powered Fan for Gas & Pellet Stoves as it begins to operate at even lower temperatures.
    Chris C.
    on January 7, 2016
    Yes. The speed of the fan is dependent upon the temperature of the surface upon which the unit is positioned. To obtain the maximum speed the surface temperature should be about 300 - 400 degrees (such as a wood stove) but it will operate on lower temperatures. The lower the temperature, the slower the fan.

    Will it hurt a finger if one puts it on the blade when it is going fast?
    1 Answer
    The blades are spinning at a high enough velocity where this would be difficult to do. It is always a good rule to keep children away from a wood stove, especially when the surface of the wood stove is hot enough to turn the fan blades. If there is a concern about this, a consideration may be purchasing a Fireplace Screen Child Guard.

    from Dallas, TX asked:
    January 3, 2016
    Will this unit work upside down as long as it is on the hot surface per the temperatures required?
    1 Answer
    While these fans have not been tested for use upside-down, there theoretically should be no problem. As you know, these units operate by heat being transferred from the fan base up to the thermo-electric pad in the center of the fan. As long as there is direct contact between the base of the fan and the appliance and the appliance reaches operating temperature, the fan should operate.

    How is this Caframo Ecofan original 800CAXBX heat powered stove fan mounted?
    2 Answers
    These are simply set on the top of a wood burning stove. There is no hardware or attachment needed in order for this Ecofan to operate.

    on December 17, 2015
    That's right , the heat of the stove is turned into electricity ,which then powers the fan. The hotter the stove the faster the fan spins ,pretty cool !

    I bought this Caframo Ecofan original 800CAXBX heat powered stove fan to place on the hearth or the mantle of my fireplace. It is not working in either area. What do I need to do to get this fan to work with my open fireplace?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, the Ecofans will only work when placed atop the surface of a stove as the base must be in contact with the heated surface in order to properly operate.

    My Caframo Ecofan suddenly developed a rattle when in operation. There is no problem with it spinning nor does it spin more slowly than before. Does this sound like something that will resolve if I replace the motor?
    1 Answer
    If there is any play when the motor is pushed in or pulled out, it will need to be replaced to stop the noise.

    Can a Caframo Ecofan get too hot? I have one of these Caframo Ecofan Original 800CAXBX heat powered stove fan and it stopped working. Are there replacement parts available or do they come in only a one unit sale?
    1 Answer
    If you have the fan in question, these fans can indeed overheat if they are placed on a surface above the operating range of 230 Degrees - 650 Degrees Fahrenheit, however, we offer the replacement motors for these fans on each product page for the corresponding fan under "Popular Accessories for this Item."

    Will this Caframo Ecofan Original 800CAXBX heat powered stove fan work well on a wood burning fireplace insert?
    1 Answer
    If the surface temperature of your insert reaches 230 degrees, the fan would work, however, there may not be much room for air flow due to the lack of space on this surface. I would use an infrared thermometer to check the surface temperature first.

    Would this Caframo Ecofan original 800CAXBX heat powered stove fan work on top of a small gas fireplace?

    What are the dimensions of the base plate of this Caframo fan? Also, is there anything protruding from the back of it? How much space is recommended from the back wall surface to the back of the fan?
    1 Answer
    The base of this fan is 4" x 3". There is nothing protruding from the rear of the fan. It is advised that the fan be used towards the rear of the stove, about 6"-12" from the back wall depending on the size of the stove.

    from Kansas City, MO asked:
    March 2, 2015
    How is this fan installed? Are there pictures that show the fan after it is installed?
    6 Answers
    The fan is set atop a wood burning stove closer to the rear of the stove top in order to operate most efficiently. If you view the photos shown on our more popular Caframo Ecofan UltraAir 810 we have attached customer submitted photos showing the placement and operation of their fans.
    Chris C.
    on March 3, 2015
    No installation of this fan necessary. One simply places the fan on its base on top of the stove toward the rear. The heat of the stove then powers the blades.
    on March 3, 2015
    from Columbia, SC
    There is no need to install the fan. You simply set it on any flat surface of your woods stove and it begins to circulate the heat once it warms up.
    on March 3, 2015
    from CO
    You'll want to set the fan on the back corner of the stove where it can draw cooler air from the back. I have a cabin off the grid and, since purchasing the fan, I really noticed a difference in how fast I can take the chill out of it. Hope this helps.
    on March 3, 2015
    from Kawkawlin, MI
    One simply sets the fan on top of the stove towards the back of the stove top. There is no installation to be done. The directions tell the consumer that. I like mine because I can go to bed with it running and I don't have to worry about turning it off. When the heat cools down it just stops turning. I also appreciate that there is NO noise while the fan is running. It is completely silent!
    on March 3, 2015
    from Lake Tahoe, NE
    The installation is simple. Remove the fan from its box and place it on the top of your wood stove. It is a great little device that is quiet and efficient. Sorry, I don't have any photos.

    We have a soapstone stove and its surface temperature is always at least 500-600 degrees. Would this fan work with our stove? Would it ever melt to the soapstone?

    Will this Ecofan work on a pellet stove?
    1 Answer
    As long as the upper lid of the stove meets the 230 degree minimum temperature, the fan will work for your application. My recommendation is to check surface temperatures with a magnetic or infrared thermometer before purchasing the fan to ensure the surface will be hot enough.
    on December 10, 2014

    from CT asked:
    December 5, 2014
    If I set a couple of these Ecofans in front of the fire in my fireplace, would they work?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, no. The ecofans rely on the high temperature difference between the upper and lower halves of the fan. In order for the difference to be high enough, the fans must be in direct contact with the hot chassis of a stove.

    from Flagstaff, AZ asked:
    November 30, 2014
    How does the CFM measurement of a fan relate to the square footage of a home? For example, for a 1600 sq. ft. one level home, what would be the appropriate CFM needed?
    1 Answer
    When it comes to the Ecofan products, the higher the CFM, the better. There is not a set rule for the amount of CFM needed to circulate air throughout the entire home. There are many factors to take into a account, such as the floor plan of the home, ceiling height, materials used in construction, and air changeover. It would take a stationary, non ducted fan with an output of well over 1000 CFM to circulate the air through the entire home. As such, the Ecofans can only realistically be expected to circulate the air in the immediate area they are located.

    from Grass Valley, CA asked:
    November 23, 2014
    I have a large stove and wish to purchase the correct fan. What would you suggest?
    1 Answer
    This particular fan would work fine for your stove. However, the Airmax 812 is capable of producing about 2/3 more CFM than this unit.

    A Very Nice Fan! Does a Good Job
    I was amazed how this fan works. We have a rather large family room where the wood stove is, and the stove has its own fan built in, so we are using this as an extra boost to help move the heat a little more. This fan would probably be a real nice boost for a wood stove in a smaller room. It does do okay in our large room as far as helping to circulate the heat a bit more. I would certainly recommend this fan!
    By Bob from Colrain, MA on February 24, 2017
    Not for Pellet Stove
    This doesn't go on until the stove reaches a very high setting They do sell one that will start turning at a more reasonable temperature, say 100 to 130. It costs almost twice as much, but if you want a fan to run buy the more expensive one. Mine is in a box in my shed because it only turns on when the house is 85 degrees.
    ProsCheaper than itssister
    ConsWon't turn on very often with a pellet stove. Probably very good with a wood stove.

    Nice experience
    This fan is very nice for a small room. This is the smallest of them all. It's some what intrusive as it stands tall on the stove. It moves the air around and creates a form of turbulence. The fan turns really fast and makes a little noice but not intrusive. Wislity is nice and well built.
    ProsWell built and it does what it made for. Fun to see when you come home that the stove is still 'on' because the fan is spinning. Good indicator of how hot the stove is.

    Our finished basement where we have our wood stove used to be hot near the stove and cold the farther you moved away from it. That is normal right?

    not sure
    I was delighted to receive the Ecofan and put it right to work upon opening the package. It began spinning and moving heat. After two weeks, it would spin if I spun it to get it going. Now, it doesn't spin/work regardless. I haven't moved it, never mind dropped it or some other thing that might cause it to stop working. Maybe the motor needs to be replaced already?

    The Ecofan I ordered arrived just before the "Blizzard of 2015" (aka Juno) and when put atop my wood stove (a Jotul 602 or is it 620) moved heated air effectively throughout my room and throughout the storm. Silently. That's right -- silently.

    We love this fan! It distributes the heat from the woodstove throughout the house! And the price is very reasonable.
    ProsQuiet and good-looking, efficient.

    Nice product.
    Nice product, but very fragile. Don't drop or get anything to hit the fan as it's working.
    ProsDistributes heat very well.
    ConsFragile. Wish I had gotten the larger version.

    Best idea yet!
    I like the Caframo Ecofan! It saves me money by not needing electricity. The best thing is I can retire at night and the fan still runs----with power fan I would have to turn it off going to bed. It is COMPLETELY silent and that is very good. I recommend the product to everyone. I bought one for myself and one for my son. The price was better than ones recommended by a friend.
    ProsAll of the above
