Can the stove use a direct vent pipe to a masonry chimney, and then switch to a single wall SS flex pipe inside chimney? A proper cap for SS pipe would be placed on top of chimney
Yes. You would need the DuraVent DirectVent Pro Masonry Chimney Conversion Kit and the DuraVent DirectVent Pro Aluminum Flex.
Thanks for the question!
Can stove be vented into a masonry chimney if the chimney is already being used for a wood cook stove in another room? In other words, could the 2 stoves share a vent pipe?
To answer your question no, you would need to install a direct vent pipe separately for the unit.
Thank you for your question!
How much space/clearance is needed above the stove for building a mantle over it?
The reccommended clearance to combustables off of the top of the stove is 45-1/2". Thanks for the question!
When you lose power and all fire places are started by electronic switches, How do you light the fire places with a match?
It depends on the ignition type, but in general you wouldn't use a match. An electronic ignition system will have a battery backup, while a millivolt system doesn't require any power to operate. Thanks for your question!
Does this fireplace give you the option to have a down vent also like the jotul lillehammer looking to replace a pellet stove and the vent is a 4inch pipe 14in from the gloor
No, the Oxford is a top vent only and requires 24" of rise off of the stove. Thanks for your question!
How do you cpntrol the. Smoke to go out ????
The Oxford is a direct vent gas stove. It's a sealed system. While there shouldn't be any "smoke" the fumes are exhausted through the direct vent piping system. Thanks for your question!
I had an open propane gas fireplace log set I removed number of years ago because we didn’t like the gas smell. Does the direct vent keep the smell out of the house?
Yes, a direct vent stove or fireplace is a sealed system. It pulls the fresh air from the outside and vents the fumes back to the outside. Thanks for your question!
Does this product come with a blower?
The blower is not included with the stove, here's a link to the blower option. Thanks for your question!
Will this operate cleanly and effectively at 5000 feet above sea level?
It will need to be derated locally. The burner orifice must be reduced by 4% for every 1,000 feet above 2,000 feet. In your case, the orifice must be reduced in size by 12%. There are no high altitude conversion kits available. Thanks for your question.
Will it heat a 400 square foot room?
It should be able to heat that and more. Thanks for your question!
Does it need electricity to run
No, the millivolt system does not require any power to operate. Thanks for your question!
What are the thermostat amd remote capability options?
A thermostat or remote with this stove only have on/off capabilities, no flame height controls. Thanks for your question!
Do you ship to Maine
Yes, we ship to Maine and the contiguous US. Thanks for your question!

The Oxford is manufactured in Halifax, PA. Thanks for your question!
Does the top of the stove heat up so I could do simple water heating or food cooking?
The top of the stove heats up, but it probably wouldn't be good for any kind of cooking. Thanks for your question!
How big an area does this heater heat
According to the manufacturer, 700 - 1,200 Sq Ft. The acutal area it can heat depends on the climate, building and other factors. Thanks for your question!
Can this be installed in a manufactured home? HUD approved?
According to the installation manual "This appliance may be installed in an aftermarket* manufactured (mobile) home, where not prohibited by state or local codes." Thanks for your question!
Can a gas fireplace stove have a blower?
Yes, some stoves include blowers, others have blowers as options you can add. Thanks for your question!
Can this stove be installed on a second floor?
Yes, this stove can be installed just about anywhere, second floors included. Thanks for your question!
Does the vent pipe have to go straight up can it go straight back into a chimney?
The vent pipe can go into a masonry chimney using a chimney conversion kit such as the DuraVent 46DVA-KCA. Thanks for your question!
Can the exhaust/chimney/flue for this stove go inside an existing 6" stove pipe (formerly used for a wood stove)?
You can use a chimney conversion kit with this stove which maintains the direct vent system through an existing chimney. Let us know if you'd like more information. Thanks for your question!
Can it run without electricity? We have limited power. Also, I live in SE AK, what are my shipping options?
Yes, the Oxford does not require electricity for operation, only the blower requires power. At this point we do not offer shipping to AK. Thanks for your question!
Does it have a blower fan? If not does the manufacturer have a blower fan accessory?
The blower is not included, but can be added. The part number is FK26. Thanks for your question!
I have three questions:
1. Can the stove be played on a hardwood floor?
2. What is the flue diameter and it’s maximum length?
3. Can you add a 6” or 8” black metal cylinder around the flue at it’s base of ~ 4’ long for aesthetic purpose and for added safety?
Yes, the stove can be placed directly on a hardwood floor. The outer stove pipe diameter is 6-5/8" and has a maximum of 40 ft vertical and 20 horizontal. You could add something additional around the vent pipe, but I don't think you would find it necessary. The pipe is designed to be exposed and is painted black. To add safety, you would need to protect the area around the entire stove as the stove will be as hot, if not hotter than the vent pipe itself. Please let us know if you'd like additional clarification. Thanks for your questions!
Do any stoves have a 7 day programmable thermostat
None of the stoves include a 7 day programmable thermostat, but you can connect one to a stove. You just need to make sure the thermostat is a universal type or works with millivolt gas systems. Basically, the thermostat must run on battery power and operate as a switch for the stove, it can't draw it's operating power from the stove like it would a furnace. Thanks for your question!
Are there options to vent through the back of the stove?
No, the Oxford is a top vent only. The Napoleon Bayfield or Knightsbridge have rear vent options. Thanks for your question!
Questions about the Oxford Majestic direct vent gas stove, model OXDV30.
Does this stove include a flow control knob to adjust the flame height?
I have seen several variations on the last letters of the model number for this stove such as OXDV30DVSB, OXDV30SB, and OXDV30SP. In the specifications you list this one as OXDV30NVSB. What is the difference?
Yes, there is a control knob on the gas valve to change the flame height. The correct model number is OXDV30SP with the SP meaning "standing pilot" the other versions of the model number relate to the older models that are no longer in production. Thank you for pointing that out and thanks for your questions!
