*Due to climates, corn grades and/or moisture content, individual room temperature preferences, dwelling design, insulation, etc., exact - across the board - burn times and heated area efficiencies cannot be given. The above figures are an average based on customer feedback and may vary up or down depending upon individual dwelling variances.
Is a chimney required?
No. Pinnacle Corn Stoves are directly vented through any outside wall, or when used as a fireplace insert, directly out of an existing chimney.
How is the fire started?
The corn is ignited by using solid fire starter sticks or wood pellets and alcohol based fire starter gel.
Is there a thermostat?
The units are equipped with a manually controlled thermostat which regulates the amount of corn fed into the fire chamber, thereby controlling the temperature.
Does the room air blower have adjustable speed control?
Yes. The room blower is adjustable and may be regulated to match temperature and personal comfort levels.
Do Pinnacle Corn Stoves get hot on the top of the stove?
No. In fact, because of the hopper location in the top of the unit and the forced room air system, the top of the units remain cool to the touch.
What kind of maintenance is required?
Depending upon the temperature setting, at least once every 24 hours (sometimes twice if temperature settings are higher), a cinder forms in the fire box and must be removed with the provided clinker tool. The unit DOES NOT need to be extinguished to perform this operation. Normal daily maintenance requires about 3 minutes of time in order to remove the clinker and fill the unit with corn. Wiping the inside of the glass door with a dry rag or paper towel is also a good idea. About every 10 days to 2 weeks, the unit should be shut down and cleaned inside the fire chamber with a brush and then vacuumed out. This removes any dust residue deposits which can insulate the inside of the fire chamber and reduce heat efficiency. When cool, the glass may be cleaned with any type of glass cleaner.
Is there any smoke?
Pinnacle Corn Stoves burn 100% of the natural ingredients of the corn and emit no smoke.
How does it work?
The patented Pinnacle Corn Stove system consists of a forced air. auger fed configuration that allows high efficient operation and clean combustion of corn.
Will it burn wood pellets?
This stove has been improved from a corn only positive pressure stove to a negative pressure multi-fuel stove using a patented induction venting system which allows this stove to now safely burn wood pellets and other bio-fuels. Please read this manual carefully and follow all recommended cleaning and maintenance instructions. It should be noted that burning corn whenever possible is always preferable to other types of fuel since it is safer, cleaner and more efficient.
BATTERY BACK-UP DEVICE REQUIREMENT
This stove is equipped with a safety shut-off device to prevent a stove fire. However, if you are burning wood pellets, or any other fuel other than corn, we require that all of those customers use a battery back-up device similar to those used to keep computer systems running in the event of a total power failure. This will prevent the heat and smoke from backing up the auger tube into the hopper if the power goes out. If your power goes out for extended periods of time, then you can use an AC/DC power inverter to run the stove if you need to for emergency heating. Pinnacle has both of these devices in stock and on sale if you need to purchase them from us.
How many BTU's in a pound of Corn?
Corn is approximately 9000 BTU per pound at 13% to 15% moisture content. Higher moisture content will result in reduced BTU output.
