    I've got an apparently serious problem with a relatively new Harmon Advance pellet stove. We are getting fumes/smoke inside the house. The piping has been inspected, and in fact replaced yesterday so it's all new, with no leaks evident there.

    When the distribution blower first comes on in the morning, we get a big puff of smoke out the vent, right into the room. We also smell smoke most of the time.

    Given that the piping is in good shape, I'm thinking there is a defect in the stove that is letting combustion chamber air mix with distribution air. Probably not a good thing.

    Does anybody have any experience with this kind of situation with Harmons?

    I'll be calling the dealer as soon as they open, but am hoping to get additional information in the meantime...

    Many thanks in advance for any wisdom tossed my way...
