    from Jamestown, CO asked:
    March 10, 2018
    Is there a electric motor that turns the blades?
    1 Answer
    All of the Caframo fans rely on heat from the stove top to trigger the motor.

    from Lancaster OH asked:
    December 29, 2017
    Can you use this for a fireplace ?
    1 Answer
    Since these fans must rest on the flat, heated top surface of a wood, pellet or gas stove, you would not be able to use an Ecofan.

    Do I need to have this fan in place when the fire is started, or can I place it on an already hot wood stove? Will it be damaged if I place it on a stove that has been burning at a consistent 500 degree for days?
    1 Answer
    That would not be a problem at all.

    from Ossipee, NH asked:
    January 9, 2016
    How do you clean this Caframo Ecofan AirMax 812 heat powered wood stove fan?
    1 Answer
    The fan body itself is an aluminum finish and can be wiped down with a damp cotton rag. The set screw should be loosened and the fan blade removed from the motor before cleaning, as to prevent bending the blades. The fan motor can be lubricated with a couple drops of a good machine oil, such as 3-IN-ONE.

    Sheryl
    from NH asked:
    January 6, 2016
    How well will this Caframo Ecofan AirMax 812 heat powered wood stove fan do in an open concept home?
    1 Answer
    The Ecofan will only push heat from the hot surface of a wood stove throughout a room and will not provide any amount of measurable added heat to the entire home. These fans work very well to induce a flow of convection, better distributing heat further away from the fan and delivering the cooler air back to the stove to be heated. They typically make about a 4-5 degree difference in the space a wood stove is effectively heating.

    Tim
    from Shelton, WA asked:
    January 6, 2016
    What happens if the stove temperature climbs over this max temperature that these fans are set to handle?
    1 Answer
    Exceeding the 650 degree maximum temperature can cause damage to the motor or the thermal generator.

    Randy
    from Newport, RI asked:
    August 11, 2015
    At what temperatures can I use this Caframo Ecofan AirMax 812 heat powered stove fan safely?
    1 Answer
    This fan is designed to operate between 185 and 650 degrees. Because of the sensitivity of the thermal generator, the 650 degree threshold should not be exceeded. Doing so will damage the generator and the electric motor.

    Doug
    from Warren, PA asked:
    October 7, 2014
    Does this model adjust its speed automatically?
    1 Answer
    This fan will gradually ramp up CFM output as the temperature of the stove increases. The fan will begin turning around 185 degrees and will continually gain momentum until the stove reaches between 225 and 250 degrees. From that point up to the maximum of 650 degrees, the fan will be turning at maximum speed and producing the full 175 CFM of air movement.

    Gary
    from Pocono Lake, PA asked:
    January 31, 2014
    Will this fan work with a coal stove?
    1 Answer
    As long as the top of the stove does not exceed the 650 degree maximum that is listed for this model, the fan can most certainly be used. Regularly exceeding the 650 degree limit can damage the thermal generator used with the fan.

    Nick
    from Sellersville, PA asked:
    January 10, 2014
    Can I use the Eco fan Airmax powered wood stove fan for my fireplace?
    1 Answer
    The Caframo Eco Fans will operate only when placed upon a surface in which the temperatures will reach approximately 225F. If your fireplace has a flat space in which to set the fan, it may be prudent to ensure the surface reaches a high enough temperature to operate the fan.

    January 11, 2013
    Is this fan good for continual use? What is the life of this fan?
    1 Answer
    These fans are ideal for continuous use. They are built to run all winter long. The manufacturer offers a one year warranty. However, this fan should provide you with service far beyond the expiration of this warranty.

    Eco fan rocks!
    I’m so happy we bought this. Only used our wood burning stove twice since purchasing this fan, but both times there was a notable difference. We rely solely on our defiant encore wood burning stove to heat our 1200 square foot home. This little fan that I had many doubts about, blew me away-pun intended! More warm air was pushed into the furthest parts of the main living space. Granted it’s still not winter here in northeast PA so I’ll re-review in mid January when it’s -22 degrees here!

    👍
    Changeable weather pattern here in N. California. Right when the fan arrived we zoomed into very warm weather so have only needed to fire up the woodstove a couple of nights - maybe not enough of a test drive! But it does appear to be warmer upstairs. We live in a 2 story open plan Octagon with a lot of air mass to heat - seems to be doing the job needed.

    Works great!
    My house is drafty and I had been discouraged that the heat from the wood burning stove just stayed in the corner of the room. Some friends told me of the fan they had seen while on a mountain vacation that sat on top of the stove. I ordered the version that required less heat to activate. It arrived promptly and lived up to the description, fanning the heat away from the stove and heating the whole lower part of the house. I do notice that the fan doesn't always get started on its own ,but I give it a spin and off it goes.

    Caframo Ecofan
    We are very pleased with the fan’s performance. Our living room ceiling is about 22 feet high and most of the heat would go straight up. The fan has made the temperature better as it pushes warm air out into the room instead of allowing all of the heat to escape upward.

    Our Awesome AirMax!
    The 812 came out of the box and ready to go to work for us. It has made our log home feel so much warmer. We have a huge vaulted ceiling, the peak is about 24 feet from the floor, so lots of air space. The Ecofan has made the kitchen stay at 70 degrees, when before it would be around 64 in the morning. That is a big difference. Order one today and you will not be disappointed.

    This little guy really moves the warm air
    So I was very skeptical when I first received my Ecofan, pulled it from the box and saw just how small it really is. However, for the past month, we have been thoroughly impressed with the amount of heat this small fan can pushed to the room/rooms it's pointed at. Our wood stove is in our dining room and our adjoining kitchen and bathroom were always cold due to lack of airflow. Now, with the Ecofan, those rooms are actually comfortable, even in the morning waking up with minimal wood still in the stove. And the Ecofan is incredibly quiet - you can literally barely tell it's running because it's so quiet. And, best of all, it's using power from the heat of my wood stove unlike my electric fan that I've tried using in the past (which is much bigger, loud and much less effective than the Ecofan).
    ProsSmall Attractive design Powered by heat (operates for free) Very effective
    ConsOnly wish it came in an even bigger model with even higher airflow.

    Worth Every Penny
    Once I purchased the Ecofan, I couldn't wait for it to arrive to see if all I thought it would do was true... Well, let me tell you, it is all that, plus... Not only can you skip worrying about plugging in a fan to move the heated air throughout your home, but it is so much more efficient by allowing the heat to evenly disperse throughout your home using less wood to get the same results that you would receive when burning a much larger fire... I highly, highly would advise anyone who wood-heats their home, as I do, to choose it: one or two, whatever your needs are, as they are very good at fulfilling their claims... Oh, yeah, my home is 2500 square feet, 2 floors, and now I am getting results- even heat throughout it with less wood.

    I am going to buy another one!!!!
    I purchased the ecofan about mid winter. I heat strictly with wood. I love this little fan. It was great at dispersing the radiant heat throughout my living area. I have three other family members who purchased after seeing mine. I will buy a second one so I can point in two directions for a more even distribution. It worked like a charm all winter. Easy to clean - just took the air hose to it and blew the dust off. No messy fan clean up. If you have a wood stove or even an insert you need one of these - especially when the power goes out - the heat from the stove kept it going with no problem. Thanks to the inventors and producer of this little guy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy Day

    Ecofan
    Well made device, works probably as anticipated. It doesn't blow air out like an electric fan, which is sort of weird. The fan is super quiet, which is really nice. The fan turns so fast that to me there is an expectation that you would feel air blowing when you hold your hand in front of it. I still don't really understand why you cant.

    It Really Works!
    We use the Ecofan AirMax 812 to help spread the heat from our oil burning stove in our house. The stove is pretty much the same as a wood burning stove, but you don't have to keep adding wood once you get it going. The stove is in the corner of a fairly large room with cathedral ceilings. We purchased the Ecofan rather than buy an electric blower. The fan works as advertised; quietly and without using electricity. We purchased it from the eFireplaceStore rather than Amazon as the price was slightly better. In addition, the company sent emails to confirm that it had been shipped "and" checked to make sure that it had arrived. I was impressed with the service.

    Caframo Ecofan AirMax 812
    I very much like this fan. When I ordered it I had so reservations, but when I put it on the stove and experienced it those reservations went away. As advertised, it is quiet. I starts on its own as soon as the surface temp comes up and the next morning when I come down its common to see it working with only coals still glowing. The only question I still have is how long it will work before something needs repair. I strongly recommend the AirMax 912.

    This fan has provided the much needed distribution of heat from our wood burning stove in our cabin. Prior to this fan, all the warmth concentrated over the stove and rose to the ceiling. Now, the heat is distributed throughout the entire cabin providing the much needed warmth in the adjoining bedroom as well as throughout the entire living space. Love it........wish we had it years ago!

    Great Gift
    I gave this item to my son as a Christmas present. He just bought his first house in Maine and it has a small wood stove. He loved it ! Did not believe it would actually work so spent time watching it before believing. I was really glad to have found something great to give as a present that I know will be used.

    Great Stove Fan
    Works great. Helps circulate heat to other rooms of the house. I had an 800 fan before but this 812 model moves much more air and distributes so much more heat than the 800 model did.

    Caframo Ecofan AirMax 812 Heat Powered Wood Stove Fan
    The Ecofan pretty much performed to my expectations. The only disappointment is the fan blade wobbles a bit. I'm working on straightening it and it should be fine to use.

    With the fan pushing the heat out, I don't need to crank up the stove so much. I am using less wood!
    One option I wish were possible would be for the fan to be on a swivel so the fan could be directed more up or down. Also option of a taller fan would be nice so the heat can more easily flow over sofa and chairs in front of the fire.

    From right out of the box to the stove top, direct fit. Within minutes, a soft flow of warm air and totally silent. Will be getting another for the other corner of the stove top. Am extremely pleased with the AirMax 812.

    We bought our ecofan 3 years ago and are so pleased with it that we just bought one as a gift for our daughter. It is durable and attractive and the best part is no electricity needed and no searching for outlets. It moves the warm air from the wood stove across the room very effectively.

    Skepical
    I was really skeptical the first couple nights with this fan. I was expecting a blast of air I guess. Other reviewers are right - at our house at least, I doubt this fan would blow a match out from 5 feet away. But... by the third night, I was thinking, wow, this thing really works! First, I messed around with the position on the stove top. I found the sweet spot was angled away from the flue, and pulling from the direction of our sliding glass door where the colder air is. Our upstairs is about 850 sq ft, and it was always really hot in the living room where the stove is, and cold in the bedrooms about 20 feet away. Now the temperature is much more consistent between the bedrooms and living room. It may not be blasting a wind, but it's definitely circulating the air very effectively. We are burning less wood and not fleeing the sauna in the loving room like we used to. I wish we had purchased one of these a long time ago. It's a great product.

    Starts slow as temperature rises, runs quiet; and slows to a stop as stove cools!
    I wanted a fan that would start at temperatures below 210 degrees. This starts at about 150 degrees, runs quietly until stove cools off. Fan shape is sort of floral-like and black, while the fan blade is nickel. Great look!!

    I was skeptical how effective this product would be at moving or circulating heat from our wood stove, but it works!! And extremely well! I can feel the hot air being pushed around from the fan. It looks great and it is easy to use. Take it out of the box and place it on the stove, and let the energy savings roll in! This product works so well, we are considering purchasing another fan to circulate more heat!

    Love this fan. We had a smaller model 800 prior and it lasted for 20 years. When deciding to shop for a new fan I chose eFireplaceStore. The selections were clearly labeled and I was able to purchase our new fan without guessing that I was ordering correct product. The fan was shipped immediately and well packaged. The pricing of the fan was the best among the many stores I compared the pricing with. The fan allows our wood insert to really perform well with heating our 2 story home of 1800 square feet.

    Functional and unique
    I saw one of the self powered stove top fans and thought about the purchase for days finally deciding to pull the trigger. Within a week it arrived and to the woodburner it went. The thermometer was reading 300 when I placed the fan on the top surface. After a minute it started working and quickly and came up to speed. The amount of air this thing moves surprised me. I can stand 4' back and still feel it. I am positive that this gadget is making a positive impact on the efficiency of the stove. Besides that it looks good working away on its own power and is absolutely quiet.

    Fine little device
    I'd seen the Caframo Eco Fans in catalogs (typically at higher prices than I paid through the dFireplace Store), but had not seen one in action till I bought an Air Max 812 for our cabin. It moves a surprising amount of air with only the faintest whoosh of sound. We used to use an electric fan placed near the wood stove, but it was a bit noisy, and would suck smoke out the stove door unless we turned it away to stir or stoke the fire. The Caframo fan sits on top of the stove, and really makes a difference in circulating the air around the room. We liked it so much we bought a second one within a week.
    ProsQuiet, effective, and not bad looking

    AirMax 812: Great product, modest improvement
    We notice a modest improvement in how the heat from our woodstove is transmitted into our open, vaulted-ceiling living room. The fan looks great and works nicely; nearly silent, too. We're glad to have it, although it doesn't move quite as much air as I'd thought it would.

    Amazing Fan
    This little fan is unbelievable. The amount of warmed air it distributes from the top of my wood stove has made a big difference in the comfort of my log home. The stove has a designed electric fan system attached on the back to distribute the warm air to the room but it is not very efficient. In addition to that it is noisy. This little fan moves so much more warm air without a sound, and by creating it's own electricity to power it. I highly recommend this fan to anyone using a wood stove.

    Surprisingly light weight but efficient
    4 pounds shipping weight! Last time I looked for one of these they weighed 15# or more. Works great, but I didn't find anywhere in the description or specs that the MFG does not want the item to be exposed to more than 650 degrees F. Our stove can get over 1000 degrees F, so we're experimenting with risers under the unit so we don't damage it. We have found that keeping just 1/4 inch air space under the unit keeps the temp well below the 650 mark, and it still works as expected. If this info had been included in the online description / specs, I might not have purchased this model, holding out for one that could sit directly on the stove. Outside this one minor issue, the fan works great. Our forced air heater runs about 50% less once we get the hot air from the stove moving around. Bottom line - worth the sale price. If I had paid the full price, I probably would have returned it.
    Prossilent operation, moves hot air efficiently, small footprint. the blade does not spin with enough force to hurt a person if they accidentally get in the way. Has a lifting handle on top for easy re positioning, even if the item is hot, and it weighs less than 4 pounds.
    Consfan blade does not have any sort of guard, careless persons can accidentally get arm or finger impacted by blade. Online info did not tell me that the unit could be damaged if exposed to more than 650 degrees F
