  • can someone help me. I tool the baffles off my quad 1200 (there are 3) and now I they won’t go back in. Seems a as tho they either expanded when I removed them or the space they need to go back in shrunk!

    • Hi Pat, yes, these can be tricky! They must go in just so, or they will not properly fit, which you are experiencing. To get them in just right, you can refer to your owner’s manual. If this is still not helpful, we recommend you call your nearest Quad service location.

  • I have a Quadra fire CB-1200i purchased 4 years ago. It is our primary source of heat. With oil price over the past 3 years wood pellets is best. We keep it very clean (3 x) per week. this was recommended by the installer. More it is keep cleaned better the efficiency it would be. However, every year something would break down. 1st auger breaks (warranty), Next year exhaust blower breaks down ($$$). 3rd year thermo-coupple went bad ($$). This year, the 4th year the control box went ($$$). Cleaning is a snap but all the problems and this also happen to a friend of mine with same pellet stove. I would never buy a Quadra-fire again. A lot my other friends have a pellet stoves by different MFG’s have had no problems. We are not saving money each year by not using the oil heat.

  • Purchased July of 2014. Am not a pellet stove expert by any means but the thickness of the stove and the quality seem a bit cheap. It does start quick and blows hot air like a bat out of hell. As far as cleaning goes u have two choices, clean a little everyday or have a real mess at the end of the month. After vaccum ing, I switch the hoses to blow mode and really blow the heat tubes out. That’s where your heat comes from so keep them clean…

  • Recently purchased this stove….It has exceeded our expectations….It has become our main heat source…..It is carbon neutral so more people should use these….I really love the heat it produces and it leaves a slight sweet aroma of wood burning….I wish I had installed it years ago….It should pay for itself in 2-3 years…and it adds value to the house…..Will post again for an update….

  • We purchased a Quadra Fire Stove 3 years ago and we love it. The main heat in our house was oil forced hot air, but since the Pellet Stove installation this has become our primary heat. We go through on average 2 – 2.5 tons a year (small ranch house) and have seen considerable savings on our heating bill. We have had no issues, and keeping it clean is simple. AES staff is very professional and they keep our stove in tip top shape with a yearly cleaning/inspection.

  • The Quadrafire stove is an awesome carefree unit…..We have owned a quadrafire stove for about 12 years and have vitrually “0” major problems with this unit….Of course you will always have the pellet that may get stuck in the auger or an Ignitor that may decide to stop working, ( we had that happen once in 12 years ), but other than that the stove is care free…..Cleaning is simple, and the guys at AES are sonderful in cleaning your unit completely before the next season…It is the opion of the writer tht you sill not find a more efficient, care free unit than the Quadrafire Pelet Stove…..Check em out…
