The Earth stove 1000 series is a stove that drops pellets from the hopper into a rotary “Drop cup” and then into the auger.
Earth stoves are “Bottom feeders” and the way it works is that the auger feeds the pellets into the fire tray in the center and as the fire burns, the ash is displaced out the ends of the tray by the new fuel entering the center of the tray.
In other words, adding pellets is just as you can get the fire going fast.

- Now, light the goop
- Close the door and then turn the rocker switch to draft fan and set the draft fan on High to get the pellets burning.
