Fixed the air draw problem on my aspen wood burning stove today. The problem was the primary air plate see Fig 34 of the Aspen manual. Remove the primary air plate you will notice a slot / notch / cut out whatever you want to call it that faces towards the rear of the firebox remove one inch of material from both ends of the slot Making it 2 inches longer. You will need to use a grinder for this. ...

Junked a Jotul stove that I couldn't keep lit for more than 10 minutes without babying it to death. Never got it to work. Took a chance with the Aspen. Some newspaper, some kindling, one match...Bam! Heats the entire upper floor to 68° for hours on end without re-loading. Burns all night, no problem. Heat control works fine. Wish I'd gotten the Aspen first...but then I probably wouldn't ...

Read most every review on this site when prepared to buy the Aspen. Seemed to be 50/50 on likes and dislikes. We ended up getting the Aspen for our 1900s farm house. It is in a family room this is about 400sqft which is connected to the 600sqft kitchen. It heats both spaces to a comfortable 68-70 degrees and this is even during a spell of single digit temps in Virginia. For performance; yes ...

It is a great little stove. Will burn 18"pieces of wood as long as you can get it in and are able to shut the door. I never burn uncured wood....that's like shooting yourself in the foot to do that. I use a couple of pieces of "fat wood", crochet in some dry kindling like little pine twigs. Then place something that burns relatively easy like pine or citrus and also some hard wood on ...

This is a very nice stove if you don't need to heat with it. It looks quite nice, but it has a basic design flaw that prevents it from burning properly with the door closed. The inlet air goes in in the middle of the back, wraps around a small channel between the castings, then into the firebox in the front middle. That path is so restrictive the fire goes out unless the door is cracked. The ...

I bought an Aspen used a little over a month ago. It has been running 24/7 ever since and the stove works fine. The stove was chosen for the specific BTU rating, we only need about 22,000 btus on the coldest days in the area of the stove and this unit has no issue keeping up. Like any stove the chimney is the engine and a good draft is required. Sizing for the heat load is often overlooked and ...

Here'a a thought - go online to Vermont Castings and read the owner's manual. This stove performs exactly as the manual says it will. No better and no worse. Also, pay attention to the wall and floor pad clearances in the manual. That's what your building department will be looking at.

The Aspen burns front to back and if you clog up the front air intake the stove won't operate and only smolders. For the money, an Aspen can't be beat. It's durable and attractive and it heats ...

I think most of the complaints in reviews are due to a bad chimney. Too big, too cold, too many bends, or blocked with creosote will definitely screw up this stove. You do need to keep the air vents clean, but it isn't hard - about 20 minutes of "post season overhaul" will do the job. Like most black painted stoves, the paint needs to be touched up occasionally. .
