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

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!
