This P.O.S. was a headache from the very first time I fired it up. It would over load the firebox, the fire wouldn't go out. Dealer determined the circuit board was faulty, Enviro replaced it, dealer installed the new board and I had the same trouble all over again. When the fire did finally go out, sort of, it overloaded the fuel box and smouldered all night long and if it wasn't for me waking up to the smell of smoke in the house, it would have killed all three of us. THE HOUSE WAS FULL OF SMOKE!!
The only good thing about this stove is that the dealer warranteed the whole thing and refunded all my money.
Enviro did stand behind their product, sort of. Took a week to get another board. Good thing I had oil to back the stove up or there would have been a lot of damage to water pipes etc.
The dealer was excellent. It is not his fault that the Enviro stove was junk to start with.
As long as I am alive and still taking in oxygen I will NEVER own another pellet stove.
