    I'm getting acquainted with my new Harman, and I wonder if someone could help me with this. I noticed when I turned my stove to the "off" position after it had been on for a few hours, the combustion blower LED light stayed on. I had to leave for the day, so I couldn't hang around to see if the light went out on its own after the stove cooled down. I killed the power to the stove and went on my way. My question is: Does the combustion light always stay on even if the stove is put in the off position??

    Thanks....

    Yes, it will stay lit until the exhaust temp falls below a certain temp. This helps clear the stove of any smoke left in the burn chamber after the stove has been shut off. I'm not too familiar with your stove but my PC45 Harman runs for 5 extra hours! That is an overkill they corrected in later models. Leave the stove run it's course, the comb. blower will be off when you return.

    My Accentra runs about 1 hour after it shuts down depending on how high it was burning prior to shutdown.

    I have the same insert and it will run about 1/2 to 1 hr after turning it off.

    Hi Folkers,
    I'm looking at the same insert and live in MA, just wondering if you could share cost of the insert, piping and install.
    There's really only one Harman dealer close enough but feel like I should get some additional quotes just to check against.
    Thanks

    I paid $3473.94 about a year ago, that included installation valued at $400 bucause I already had a 4 inch pipe installed from my previous pellet insert. It also included delivery and a ton of pellets valued at $200.00. The price was complete including sales tax etc. What are you being quoted?

    I got quotes ranging from $2,900.00 to $3,050.00 for the stove, and $750.00 to $950.00 for installation. The stove quotes included $100.00 off coupon from Harman.

    sounds about right. Mine was 2799 after the $100 from Harman.

    Why would you do a thing like that? That's asking for trouble, or at the least, a smoky house.

    Yeah, my quote for stove and install was $4000...just seemed like to round of a number to have any logic behind it.

    shutting off power like that could hurt your control board

    nope, it wont. But it also wont evacuate any smoke from any remaining embers, ergo, smoke in the house if there are even the most minute of leaks!

    On page 6 of your manual it says

    "Never pull the plug or otherwise disconnect the power supply to kill a fire."

    Others above have commented on some of the why's.

    Just curious, not picking a fight, did you read your manual or did you just ask the forum what to do? Did your dealer review operation with you and show you how the controls work?

    To all (not just this poster) Why would you purchase an appliance that puts a live fire in your house and then not read the manual? Who's fault will it be if something goes wrong and you haven't even read your manual? It is not your dealers responsibility. Your dealer will give you a "review" but you need to take responsibility for your own stove. That starts with reading the manual.

    There was no live fire involved here. The fire was out and the stove was finishing its shutdown sequence. It seemed like the combustion blower was running for quite some time, and at the time I thought it unusual. But having had the stove for several months now, I understand its nuances. I have a healthy respect for fire and electricity. I read the manual, and would never have attempted to kill a live fire by pulling the plug on the stove. I understand now that combustion blower running time will vary with each shutdown.

    Interesting note about this: I called the dealer I purchased the stove from and asked "Does the combustion blower run all the time even when the stove is turned off?" They answered YES. This we know is incorrect.

    BTW, The P35i is a Fantastic Stove Insert!

    Yeah, the p35i is a good stove. It cost me about $4k with about a 25' liner through my fireplace.
