"OEM" or Original Equipment Manufacturer are parts that the stove manufacturer makes themselves or outsources from other suppliers for their specific stove models. When you order replacement parts for your pellet stove directly from a manufacturer or it’s retailers you can be certain that these parts will be “OEM”.
"AMP" is an acronym that stands for After Market Parts. This is equipment that is sourced out directly which cuts out the stove manufacturers hefty markup. AMP equipment works exactly the same as its OEM counterpart, especially when you’re looking at blowers, igniters, fire backs, switches, gaskets and controls, as quite often, they are made by the same exact manufacturer that supplied the OEM parts as you will see with many “Fasco” blowers and “Gleason Avery” auger motors.
Here at Stove Parts 4 Less we like to offer you the choice of the OEM and the AMP version of products whenever possible to save you money. In some cases we like to offer multiple versions of the AMP part where they are made by the same manufacturer as the original or an alternative version at an even lower price.

About the Jensen 24 Series
When properly used, your Jensen 24 can achieve 6 to 8 hours of burn time when using dried hardwood. Coal will be able to burn much longer. If you find that you furnace is firing with full flame constantly and burning for less than 3 hours, you are overfiring your furnace. This is dangerous and can lean to warped grates and other issues, so it is important to prevent overfiring by following the proper operating procedures.
You can extend the life of your furnace by following these precautions:
Make sure the ash door and feed door are properly closed Allowing the ash for feed doors to remain open can allow too much air into the furnace and cause it to burn too quickly.
Regularly empty the ash pan Allowing the ash pan to become too full can cause the grate to warp. Coal produces much more ash than wood does, so be sure to check the ash pan more often when burning coal.
Do not throw heavy / wet logs into the firebox This could crack the firebricks.
Shut the furnace down gradually Failing to gradually cool down the furnace can place excessive stress on the steel.
