Attractive appearance with twin front doors. Comes with screen that fits into the door opening so you can use as an open fireplace.
Belches smoke into the room every time you open the doors to load wood. Blower is mounted on rear over the metal mfg information panel which insulates the thermostat in blower from stove and prevents it from coming on. Had to replace blower with one with more sensitive thermostat. Screen for front door hard to take off to add more wood when using as a fireplace. Unit does not seem very well thought out.
The manufacturer blew off our dealer and said there weren't any problems with the stove. We're planning to replace this stove ASAP.
