St. Croix Lancaster

From St. Croix
Lancaster corn stoves have all the features of larger corn burning stoves, but are more compact in size for those smaller areas in your home.

The Lancaster is 20" wide by 28.5" tall or 37 1/8" tall with legs. The stove has a heating capacity of 1800 square feet and a max heat output of 40,000 BTUs. It will hold up to 35 lbs of corn or 70 lbs with an available hopper extension.

All these people complaining that their stove doesn't work. Well maybe if they did the REQUIRED weekly maintenance it would be fine. You HAVE to clean the ashes out. If it shuts off that means it isn't getting a vacuum and is dirty. I know I ran mine for 5 years no problem until now when it shuts off because it isn't getting a vacuum. I took the time to read the operation manual and discovered ...

St Croix is far better than Harman. Less bells and whistles means less that can go wrong. 12 years with mine I replaced a fan motor because it got loud, yeah probably could have replaced a bearing but how long would that have lasted. It keeps the house clean. For a reviewer that said it made your house dirty. You are mistaken. More likely dust or black or not is caused by either no outside ...

Once you are able to get the information you need to properly maintain the stove it heats beyond its expected capacity. The most common problems with the stove is it becomes difficult to keep the fire from going out. This is caused by ash that is blocking air chambers that are not mentioned In the maintenance manual. To the left and right of the burn pot on the brick wall are two metal round ...

I have been using this stove for about 9 years and just love it. Back in 2005 i used corn as it was I believe $125.00 a ton. I burnt corn for probably 4-5 yrs then switched to wood pellets because of price, The corn was very dusty and messy on the siding and actually corroded my aluminum soffets. As far as this stove the main problem I have had is the bearings went out on exhaust blower 2 times ...

We have had our stove for several years and it has worked great for us. We've had a few minor repairs but they were all very easy to make on our own without having to call in a repairman. We are looking into getting another one for our daughter now.

I've had mine 89 years and have like it. We have burnt corn and pellets. My exhaust is a 4" straight pipe, and I use a straight sraw on my in put. Mine is ona 4 season porch with tile over concrete and the floor keeps warm. Keep it clean, total cleaning once a year and otherwise follow instructions. I have had less than 24 hours down time over these 8 years, 24/7 . Run it on high at least 1 ...

Do NOT buy a St. Croix stove. We have had two - both are disasters. The first was a pellet/corn stove. It filled our house with black ash. My wife called our home, 'the coal mine' because everything was so dirty. The St. Croix rep came to our house, couldn't figure out the problem. After several adjustments to OUR home (heat exchanger, etc.) - still didn't work right. The dealer replaced ...

I've had this stove now for about 7 years, with 5 of them in active service. Over the last three years, it's been more and more cantankerous. At this point, there are days when it won't fully start, burns perfectly for an hour or so then suddenly shuts off, shuts off when you open the door (but sometimes not), or won't go beyond the lowest setting, but runs fine in that setting. I've cleaned ...

This particular stove requires about 2 hours of intense cleaning per week. Even-Temp took over St. Croix, but when you call they say you have to call your dealer. We have tried EVERY suggestion the dealer (Ace Hardware) has thrown at us. They suggested: Try different brand of pellets Have professionally cleaned Burn only on high Clean chimney There are hidden chambers that fill with ash ...

Needs frequent cleaning for consistent efficiency. Lots of crevices to clean out, I use canned air to blow the ash out and a shop vac to clean. This is okay in fall or spring weather, but in the dead of winter it gets cold when it needs cleaning. I have no back up heat. Nice little stove overall, very attractive.

This is a GREAT New Stove. Burns Hot, Clean, & easy. It heats almost 3000 square feet in my home. Love the ease of pushing a button to start, and just empty the ash pan. St. Croix has another amazing product & we are very impressed with this stove, have been telling everyone.

Have had it in a 100 year old drafty farmhouse in North Dakota for the past two winters. Works well. Easy to take care of. Added the hopper extension so we could go a bit longer between fills during the long, cold winter nights when temps hit 30 below and colder. Burns clean, is easy to take care of and works well. Will have a battery backup for this coming winter so the fan and auger continue ...

St. Croix Greenfield

The Greenfield in appearance refers back to the traditional cast iron wood stoves, but it's uniquely designed to burn economical corn as its fuel.
