    It also depends on the model year. The newer models have a "higher" output heat exchange fan motor, making them a little noisier then the older models. I believe I have the older model (am going to check next time I do a cleaning) and it is about 8' from the TV and we have no problem watching the TV with the volume at normal level.

    Big difference in noise from old blower to new. The old one was extremely quiet. The new one is what I would call "average" noise. Probably on par with the Harman Accentra and many other stoves. But, the new blower really makes the stove put out the heat and the stove itself stays much cooler.

    Billy the installer stopped by this morning and he agreed with me that the motor is a little noisy so he is ordering a replacement for it today. Should in next week.
    Yea!
    Here is the finished product-
    Love the stove, with a quieter motor it will be even better.

    My stove stopped, number 3 blinking.

    I thought it might be out of pellets but I looked into the hopper and what i thought was quit a bit of pellets there...
    But it did take a whole bag of pellets, barely.
    Started it up and is running fine.

    So the hopper does not completely empty of pellets?

    Is this typical?

    When I first started it up this season, it happened once or twice, but have not had it happen again. It seems that the pellets don't want to slide down the side of the hopper until there is a good bit of fines built up, reducing the friction.

    I had a problem with my old stove and pellets falling. when the hopper got low some pellets would stick to the side and the auger wouldnt be able to grab the pellets. the stove would shut down but some times during shut down the pellets would fall down to the auger and it would appear that there was enough pellets in the hopper. I havent experienced this on the m55. Actually my stove uses all the pellets without shuting down. They all slide down to the bottom.

    I wonder if there is a difference in the slope of the hopper walls between the free standing and insert?

    Well- the three amigos have their M55 installed-
    We are all very happy with the stove and Billy's install.
    My buddies stove's are really quite, I can't wait to have my new auger motor installed.
    There is definitely a problem with it, oh well.
    now on to other questions....

    Well I am happy to say that tonight my dealer came over with a replacement Auger motor and the stove is whisper quit- just with sweet sounds of pellets dropping and the whoosh of the fan.
    I am now completely and officially happy with my stove

    Awesome...glad you got it fixed. A quiet auger is a must! Sounds like you 3 Amigos are having fun with your stoves. You should get them to get on this forum so we can all share experiences with the M55.
