DIY Wood Stove Fan for under $50
Pretty cool well done, I bet it gets lots of looks? Might give it a go one week end cheers.Steve.
I built one of these with two Perrier heat systems and they no longer work. I think I keep burning them out. Here are pictures. What am I doing wrong?
Stoves get quite hot, but most TEG/Peltier plates cannot take the high temperature. To buy one that uses high temperature solder etc so that it can take 250degC costs several tens of $. Ebay has Chinese ones claiming to take 150degC, but I have heard this is a lie, and that they break. Which ones are you using?You might get away with only a lower temperature capable Peltier plate because you are standing it off the stove surface using the smaller Pentium heatsink; this is reducing the temperature on the hot side of the Peltier, but it also makes everything less efficient.
This was a great little project but it wants a bigger fan blade. I also blew up the first module as it got too hot. So there are three screws underneath as stand offs.
Hi,I have read your input on my problems. Would it work if I do as he does, use a ac electric motor? If it does, do you know where I can find a propeller that can fit in a space with over all height of 10 cm? ....with suitble material for wood stowes?Thanks for the help.
