FYI to everyone with Harman stoves built late 2007-2008. I had a Harman dealer (same one we purchased stove from & they installed the stove) come out to look at our Harman XXV stove Saturday because the squeaking was driving us nuts! The squeaking turned out to be an arm in the back by the chain (which was too tight). He did some adjustments on that & they will do more in the shop. He looked at the end of the auger tube & said we have a hole there (looks like a crack to me). He said this is caused by the lowest row of burn pot holes & is a problem in the late 2007 & 2008 stoves. It's apparently a known defect, but the dealer can't fix it until the hole is evident. Our dealer is picking up the stove today, will replace the auger tube or whatever the fix is (some kit they have) and will close up those holes by welding them in. Then return the stove to us Wednesday. Harman is paying for everything except the $55 service call charge for Saturday.
