    This is the first pellet stove we've ever had and we're a little concerned with the noise of the fan. Apparently putting it into the "quiet" mode isn't even going to do anything, either. We have ours right in the midst of our living space so that it will distribute heat well, but I have to say I'm a little less than gung ho on this right now. :(

    If anyone has any suggestions on dealing with the sound issue, I'm all ears. ;)

    mine is better now it had a bad high heat sensior they came in replaced it and it is quieter dont under stand what that had to do with the noise but now it will keep running,the stove puts out alot more than my old stove so the little bit of extra noise is not that bad.they think it caused the fan to run harder to cool down.
