We have had our stove for about a week and a half. Love it! Heats the whole house, but then again we have a 1300 sq ft home, 2 level home and basement. I burn corn, I really think this would solve a lot of people's problems that I am reading about. (Soot on the siding and all.) Corn burns so clean that there is no smoke outside at all, and we are getting a consistent burn and heat. I start the ...

I'm constantly messing with the settings. I am burning wood pellets. If I set it at 0-0 then it barely burns at all. As soon as more pellets drop in, it all but puts the fire out. If I crank it as high as the feed rate will go then I get a huge orange flame, but it burns real black. I love the stove for its efficiency, I'm just tired of black soot on my house and constanly messing with the ...

I bought three Maxfires last fall. I have used both a Harman PC45 and a Quadrafire AE for one season before buying the Max Fire 115. Once you get the settings done the Bixby runs great and puts out consistant heat. I like the way you can program it to suit your specific needs using Bixcheck and my own computer to adjust the software or update to a newer software. The settings are fairly easy just ...

Sset your stove at 0-0. This seemed to fix it for us, also make sure there are no ashes blocking the vent hole where your ash pan is. how about stove not cleaning out it jams instead.

This is the best buy I've made in a long time. No problems since we bought it back in October. It's so easy and clean and it amazes me how efficient it is.

I now have had my stove for about two weeks. It seems to work great, but sometimes touchy, About once a week it just shuts down. Once there was flashing lights, once it just took a break. In both cases, I cleaned out the ash and fired right back up. It does put out a lot of heat! I have been burning pellets and this is my first stove. I don't like the fact that the factory does not answer emails. ...
