Location : Toronto, ON , Canada
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store -
Large glass door
Air control lever doesn't properly control air supply into stove - Impossible to have a slow, long burn.
Poorly configured air channel around back of stove results in fan blowing very little hot air.
Fan is noisy.
Rheostat to control fan speed has a short life span.
Soapstone inside insert doesn't radiate any additional heat.
Cotter pin holding handle in place loosens when stove heats up.
This is a poorly designed and executed product. Hearthstone freestanding stoves may be quality products, but this insert is a dud. So far, my dealer has been unable to get Hearthstone to acknowledge any of these problems.
