Introduction
* This manual is designed for the home owner in conjunction with the technical manual. *
Rating Label Location:
Freestanding: The rating label is located on the inside of the hopper lid.
Insert: The rating label is located on the hopper cover.
Pellet Quality:
Pellet quality is important, please read the following:
Your enviro pellet stove has been designed to burn wood pellets only. Do not use any other
type of fuel, as this will void any warranties stated in this manual.
The performance of your pellet stove is greatly affected by the type and quality of wood
pellets being burned. As the heat output of various quality wood pellets differs, so will the
performance and heat output of the pellet stove.
Caution: It is important to select and use only pellets that are dry and free of dirt or any impurities
such as high salt content. Dirty fuel will adversely affect the operation and performance of the unit
and will void the warranty. The Pellet Fuel Industries (P.F.I.) has established standards for wood pellet
manufacturers. We recommend the use of pellets that meet or exceed these standards. Ask your dealer
for a recommended pellet type.
P.F.I. PELLET STANDARDS:
Fines (fine particles)......1% maximum through a ⅛” screen
Bulk Density..................40 pound per cubic foot minimum
Size..............................¼” to 5/16” diameter ½ – 1½” long maximum
Ash Content..................1% maximum (Premium grade)
..................3% maximum (Standard grade)
Moisture Content...........8% maximum
Heat Content.................approximately 8200 Btu per pound minimum
ASH: The ash content of the fuel and operation of your stove will directly determine the frequency of
cleaning. The use of high ash fuels may result in the stove needing to be cleaned daily. A low ash fuel
may allow longer intervals between cleaning.
CLINKERING: [clinkers are silica (sand) or other impurities in the fuel that will form a hard mass during
the burning process]. This hard mass will block the air flow through the Burn Pot Liner and affect the
performance of the stove. Any fuel, even approved types, may tend to clinker. Check the Burn-Pot Liner
daily to ensure that the holes are not blocked with clinkers. If they become blocked, remove the liner
(when the unit is cold) and clean/scrape the clinkers out. Clean the holes with a small pointed object if
required. Refer to the section Routine Cleaning and Maintenance.
PELLET FEED RATES: Due to different fuel densities and sizes, pellet feed rates may vary. This may
require an adjustment to the slider damper setting or to the auger feed trim setting on low.
Since Sherwood Industries Ltd. has no control over the quality of pellets that you use, we assume no
liability for your choice in wood pellets.
Store pellets at least 36” (1 m) away from the pellet stove.

Introduction
Important Safety Data:
Please read this entire Owner’s Manual before installing or operating your ENVIRO Pellet
Stove. Failure to follow these instructions may result in property damage, bodily injury
or even death. Contact your local building or fire official to obtain a permit and any information on
installation restrictions and inspection requirements for your area.
To prevent the possibility of a fire, ensure that the appliance is properly installed by adhering to the
installation instructions. An ENVIRO dealer will be happy to assist you in obtaining information with
regards to your local building codes and installation restrictions.
Be sure to maintain the structural integrity of the home when passing a vent through walls, ceilings, or
roofs.
The stove’s exhaust system works with negative combustion chamber pressure and a slightly positive
chimney pressure. It is very important to ensure that the exhaust system be sealed and airtight. The ash
pan and viewing door must be locked securely for proper and safe operation of the pellet stove.
Do not burn with insufficient combustion air. A periodic check is recommended to ensure proper
combustion air is admitted to the combustion chamber. Setting the proper combustion air is achieved by
adjusting the slider damper located on the left side of the stove.
When installing the stove in a mobile home, it must be electrically grounded to the steel chassis of the
home and bolted to the floor. Make sure that the structural integrity of the home is maintained and all
construction meets local building codes.
Minor soot or creosote may accumulate when the stove is operated under incorrect conditions such as an
extremely rich burn (black tipped, lazy orange flames).
If you have any questions with regard to your stove or the above-mentioned information, please feel free
to contact your local dealer for further clarification and comments.
Safety Warnings And Recommendations:
Caution: Do not connect to any air distribution duct or system.
Do not burn garbage or flammable fluids such as gasoline, naptha or engine oil.
Unit hot while in operation. Keep children, clothing and furniture away. Contact
may cause skin burns.
FUEL: This pellet stove is designed and approved to only burn wood pellet fuel with up to 3% ash
content. Dirty fuel will adversely affect the operation and performance of the unit and may void the
warranty. Check with your dealer for fuel recommendations. THE USE OF CORDWOOD IS PROHIBITED BY LAW.
SOOT: Operation of the stove with insufficient combustion air will result in the formation of soot which
will collect on the glass, the heat exchanger, the exhaust vent system, and may stain the outside of the
house. This is a dangerous situation and is inefficient. Frequently check your stove and adjust the slider/
damper as needed to ensure proper combustion. See: “Slider/Damper Setting”.
CLEANING: There will be some build up of fly ash and small amounts of creosote in the exhaust. This
will vary due to the ash content of the fuel used and the operation of the stove. It is advisable to inspect
and clean the exhaust vent semi-annually or every two tons of pellets.

Introduction
ASHES: Disposed ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tight fitting lid. The closed container
of ashes should be on a non-combustible floor on the ground, well away from all combustible materials
pending final disposal. If the ashes are disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise locally dispensed, they
should be retained in the closed container until all cinders have been thoroughly cooled.
ELECTRICAL: The use of a surge protected power bar is recommended. The unit must be
grounded. The grounded electrical cord should be connected to a standard 115 volts (4.6 Amps), 60
hertz electrical outlet. Be careful that the electrical cord is not trapped under the appliance and that it is
clear of any hot surfaces or sharp edges and also must be accessible. If this power cord should become
damaged, a replacement power cord must be purchased from the manufacture or a qualified ENVIRO
dealer. This unit’s maximum power requirement is 520 watts.
GLASS: Do not abuse the glass by striking or slamming the door. Do not attempt to operate the stove
with broken glass. The stove uses ceramic glass. Replacement glass must be purchased from an ENVIRO
dealer. Do not attempt to open the door and clean the glass while the unit is in operation or if glass is
hot. To clean the glass, use a soft cotton cloth and mild window cleaner, gas or wood stove glass cleaner,
or take a damp paper towel and dip into the fly ash. This is a very mild abrasive and will not damage the
glass.
FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS: Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter
fluid, or similar liquids to start or “freshen up” a fire in the heater. Keep all such liquids well away from
the heater while it is in use.
SMOKE DETECTOR: Smoke detectors should be installed and maintained in the structure when
installing and operating a pellet burning appliance.
OPERATION: The ash pan and door must be closed securely for proper and safe operation of the pellet
stove. Also ensure all gaskets on the door are checked and replaced when necessary.
KEEP ASH PAN FREE OF RAW FUEL.
DO NOT PLACE UNBURNED OR NEW PELLET FUEL IN ASH PAN. A fire in the ash pan may occur.
INSTALLATION: Be sure to maintain the structural integrity of your home when passing a vent through
walls, ceilings, or roofs. It is recommended that the unit be secured into its position in order to avoid any
displacement.
DO NOT INSTALL A FLUE DAMPER IN THE EXHAUST VENTING SYSTEM OF THIS UNIT.
DO NOT CONNECT THIS UNIT TO A CHIMNEY FLUE SERVING ANOTHER APPLIANCE.
FRESH AIR: Outside Fresh Air connection is optional. Must be connected to all units installed in Mobile
and “Air Tight Homes” (R2000) or where required by local codes. Consider all large air moving devices
when installing your unit and provide room air accordingly. Limited air for combustion may result in poor
performance, smoking and other side effects of poor combustion.
If you have any questions with regards to your stove or the above-mentioned information, please feel
free to contact your local dealer for further clarification and comments.
Since Sherwood Industries Ltd. has no control over the installation of
your stove, SHERWOOD INDUSTRIES LTD. grants no warranty implied or stated
for the installation or maintenance of your stove. Therefore, Sherwood
Industries Ltd. assumes no responsibility for any consequential damage(s).

Operating Instructions
Slider/Damper Set-Up:
The Slider / Damper must be set at time of installation. A Qualified Service Technician
or Installer must set the Slider Damper. This is used to regulate the airflow through the pellet stove. The
slider damper knob is located on the left cab side (see Figure 7).
If the fire should happen to go out and the heat output indicator has
been set on the lowest setting, the Slider Damper should be pushed in
slightly, decreasing the air in the firebox.
If, after long periods of burning, the fire builds up and overflows the
burn pot or there is a build up of clinkers, this would be a sign that the
pellet quality is poor, this requires more primary air, the slider damper
must be pulled out to compensate. Pulling the slider damper out gives
the fire more air.
The easiest way to make sure that an efficient flame is achieved is to
understand the characteristics of the fire.
• A tall, lazy flame with dark orange tips requires more air – Open
slider (pull out) slightly.
• A short, brisk flame, like a blowtorch, has too much air – Close
slider (push in) slightly.
• If the flame is in the middle of these two characteristics with
a bright yellow/orange, active flame with no black tips then
the air is set for proper operation, refer to Figure 8.
Figure 7: Slider / Damper Knob.
The combustion exhaust blower is a variable speed blower
controlled by the heat output button. This blower will decrease
the vacuum pressure inside the stove and as the heat output
button is turned down.
SPECIAL NOTES:
Pellet quality is a major factor in how the Pellet stove will operate.
If the pellets have a high moisture content or ash content the
fire will be less efficient and has a higher possibility of the fire
building up and creating clinkers (hard ash build-up).
Figure 8: Efficient Flame.
Guidelines For Fine-Tuning For Fuel Quality:
Due to fuel quality the slider damper and control board trims may need to be fine-tuned.
1.If the unit builds up on all settings, the slider damper rod should be pulled out in small increments to
give the unit more air.
2.If the unit has excesses ash build-up in the liner on the lower feed settings, the Combustion Blower
Trim should be increased one setting at a time until the problem improves (Factory Setting is #2).
3.If the fire is going out on low because the airflow is too great, the Combustion Blower Trim can be
lowered to the #1 setting.
4.If the stove has excesses ash build-up in the liner on the higher settings the Feed Rate Trim should be
trimmed down a setting at a time until the problem improves (Factory setting is #4).
5.If you need more heat and the fuel has long pellets, the majority are over 1” (2.5cm) in length, the
Feed Rate Trim can be moved up to the #5 setting. NOTE: Only do this if the fuel burns without
building up.

• Torx T-20 Screwdriver • Brush
• Soft Cloth
5
• /16” Wrench or Socket • Vacuum with fine filter bag
BURN POT AND LINER (2-3 days)
Figure 9: Burn pot assembly.
Cleaning of the burn pot and liner must only be done when stove is cold. To remove the burn pot and
burn pot liner, open the door using the door handle provided (located on the right-hand side of the stove).
Swing the door open. Lift the liner from the burn pot. Lift the burn pot from the firebox by gently lifting up
the front of the burn pot, then sliding the assembly from the air intake tube and the ignitor cartridge.
This is the ‘pot’ where the pellets are burned. Every two (2) to three (3) days (when the unit is cold),
remove the burn-pot liner from the stove and inspected it to ensure proper air flow through the liner.
Failure to keep the liner clean may cause a build up of fuel past the burn pot liner and up
the drop tube. This will cause the auger to jam and may result in pellets burning in the drop
tube and hopper. Using a metal scrapper, remove material that has accumulated or is clogging the
liner’s holes. Then dispose of the scrapped ashes from the liner and from inside the burn-pot. Place the
burn-pot back into the stove, making sure that the pipes are properly inserted into the burn pot. Place
the liner back into the burn-pot, making sure that the ignitor hole in the liner is aligned with the ignitor
tube. Pushing the liner up against the ignitor tube.
If, after long periods of burning, the fire continually builds up and overflows the burn pot or there is a
build up of clinkers, this is an indication that the pellet fuel quality is poor or the stove may need cleaning.
Check the stove for ash build up (clean if required) and adjust the slider / damper to produce the proper
clean combustion.
DOOR GLASS CLEANING (2-3 days)
Cleaning of the glass must only be done when stove is cold. Open the door by lifting the handle. The glass
can be cleaned by wiping down the outside and inside of the glass with a dry soft cloth.
If the glass has build up that can not be removed with only the cloth, clean the glass using paper towel
and a gas appliance glass cleaner, this may be purchased through most dealers. If a gas appliance glass
cleaner is not available, use a damp paper towel dipped in fly ash to clean the glass. After the glass has
been cleaned use the dry soft cloth to wiping down the outside and inside of the glass
DOOR LATCH (2-3 days)
Check the door latch every time the door is opened or closed to ensure proper movement.
10
Routine Cleaning and Maintenance
ASH PAN AND DOOR GASKETS (weekly)
After extended use the gasketing may come loose. To repair this, glue the gasketing on using hightemperature fiberglass gasket glue available from your local ENVIRO dealer. This is important to maintain
an airtight assembly.
ASH PAN (weekly)
The ash pan is located under the burner. Dump the ashes into a metal container stored away from
combustibles. Monitor the ash level every week. Remember that different pellet fuels will have different
ash contents. Ash content is a good indication of fuel efficiency and quality. Refer to “Introduction Safety Warnings And Recommendations” for disposal of ashes.
Freestanding: To remove the ash pan, simply turn the knob and pull out towards the front.
Insert: To remove the ash pan open the door, remove the burn pot liner and the burn pot, then pull the
ash pan out.
DO NOT PLACE UNBURNED OR RAW PELLET FUEL IN ASH PAN.
HEAT EXCHANGER TUBES (weekly)
Tube cleaner rod
Open the door and the rod is located under the unit
top, in the center of the stove just behind the door (see
Figure 9). This handle is to be pushed in and out a few
times (ONLY WHEN THE UNIT IS COLD) in order
to clean away any fly ash that may have collected on
the heat exchanger tubes. As different types of pellets
produce different amounts of ash, cleaning of the tubes
should be done on a regular basis to enable the unit to
run efficiently.
FRESH AIR INTAKE (season)
Figure 10: Heat Exchanger Tube Cleaner.
Inspect periodically to be sure that it is not clogged with any foreign materials.
EXHAUST VENT (season)
This vent should be cleaned every year or after two (2) tons of pellets. We recommend contacting your
dealer for professional cleaning. To clean the vent pipe, tap lightly on the pipe to dislodge any loose ash.
Open the bottom of the “T” to dump the ash, then vacuum as much of the ash out of the vent pipe as
possible.
BLOWER MECHANISMS (season)
Unplug the stove then open the right and left side panels to access the two blowers. Vacuum all dust
from motors. DO NOT lubricate the motors. Check gaskets and replace if needed.
ALL HINGES (season)
Check all the hinges on the unit to ensure proper movement.
11
Routine Cleaning and Maintenance
EXHAUST PASSAGES (season)
Removal of the firebox backing for biannual cleaning (refer to Figure 10):
• Open the door by lifting the handle,
remove the burn pot and burn pot liner.
• Lubricate all screws with penetrating oil.
• Remove the four (4) screws that hold
the brick liner retainers in place. Remove
side brick liners by sliding them forward
then out.
• Pull the center panel out.
• Vacuum and clean thoroughly.
Installation of firebox backing:
• Insert center panel with backing.
• Place the two (2) side panels back into the
firebox and reinstall the two (2) retainers
using two (2) screws on each side.
• Replace the burn pot and burn pot liner
• Close the glass door and secure.
Figure 11: Firebox Components Removal.
POST SEASON CLEAN-UP
Once you are finished using the pellet appliance for the season, unplug the stove for added electrical
protection. It is very important that the stove be cleaned and serviced as stated above.
CLEANING PLATED SURFACES
Painted surfaces should be wiped with a damp cloth periodically.
It is important to note that fingerprints and other marks can leave a permanent stain on plated finishes.
To avoid this, give the surface a quick wipe with denatured alcohol on a soft cloth BEFORE lighting the
fireplace. Never clean surfaces when they are hot. Do not use other cleaners or abrasives as they may
leave a residue or scratches, which can become permanently etched into the surface.
FIREBOX PANEL
The paint on the steel firebox panels may peel. This is due to extreme conditions applied to the paint and
is in no way covered by warranty.
REPLACING DOOR GLASS
It is recommended that your ENVIRO dealer replace the glass if broken.
The door glass is made of high temperature PYRO CERAMIC 5 mm thick. The center panel is 15.4” x 9.0”
(39.0 cm x 22.9 cm) and side panels are 2.6 x 9.0 inches (6.7 cm x 22.9 cm). They must be replaced with
(Part # EF-062). Substitute materials will not be permitted.

1. This Warranty does not cover tarnish, discoloration or wear on the plating or paint.
2. This Warranty excludes wear and tear or breakage caused by cleaning, moving or service on log set.
3. A qualified installer must install this stove or fireplace. This Limited Warranty covers defects in materials
and workmanship only if the product has been installed in accordance with local building and fire codes;
in their absence, refer to the owner’s manual. If the product is damaged or broken as a result of any
alteration, willful abuse, mishandling, accident, neglect, or misuse of the product, the Limited Warranty
does not apply.
4. The stove must be operated and maintained at all times in accordance with the instructions in the
Owner’s Manual. If the unit shows signs of neglect or misuse, it is not covered under the terms of this
Warranty policy. Performance problems due to operator error will not be covered by the Limited Warranty
policy.
5. As this is a heating appliance some changes in colour of surface finishes may occur. This is not a flaw and
as such is not covered under this warranty.
6. Some minor expansion, contraction, or movement of certain parts and resulting noise, is normal and not
a defect and, therefore, is not covered under this Limited Warranty.

Limited Warranty.

including but not limited to glass that is struck, has surface contaminates or has had harsh or abrasive
cleaners used on it.
9. This warranty does not cover products made or provided by other manufacturers and used in conjunction
with the operation of this stove without prior authorization from Sherwood Industries Ltd. The use of
such products may nullify the Limited Warranty on this stove. If unsure as to the extent of this Limited
Warranty, contact your authorized Enviro dealer before installation.
10. Sherwood Industries Ltd. will not be responsible for inadequate performance caused by environmental
conditions.
11. The Limited Warranty does not cover installation and operational related problems such as spillage
caused by environmental conditions. Environmental conditions include but are not limited to nearby

which is the result of, but not limited to, improper chimney/venting installation.

rusting. Damage caused by salt air or high humidity is not covered by the Limited Warranty.
13. Exclusions to the Limited Warranty include: injury, loss of use, damage, failure to function due to
accident, negligence, misuse, improper installation, alteration or adjustment of the manufacturer’s
settings of components, lack of proper and regular maintenance, alteration, or act of God.

inconvenience expenses and materials. The Limited Warranty does not cover incidental or consequential

advertising, packaging literature, or printed material is not part of the Limited Warranty.

or altered in any way. If the stove is used for commercial purposes, it is excluded from the Limited
Warranty.
