    I installed a Harman Advance pellet stove about a month ago, and it ran great until today when it starting making a loud high pitched noise every time the feeder chain was moving. I put wd40 on the moving parts but that didn't solve it.

    Has anyone had this problem, or know what it is?

    Thanks

    Had that happen once two years ago. It was my combustion fan that was screaching. I have pets so there was quite a bit of dust and pet hairs that got sucked into the fins and air holes....cleaned everything out... including the fins that you see in back of the ashbox,,,,,and put a little lube.....the screaching worked itself out and ran quiet after that. If that doesn't work,,,,,maybe the motor is on it's way out?

    Check the pellet feed auger. Sounds like you have buildup there in the burn pot. Give it a good cleaning as said above. Cresote builds up at the auger rotation point

    I noticed the same noise this evening when I turned on my stove. I just had it installed yesterday...Harman XXV...and can't run it fully yet because I'm waiting for the fire inspector to do his thing. But a very loud and annoying sound coming everytime the feeder did it's thing. Any thoughts? Thanks

    Fico, if its making all that noise after just being installed, something is loose or bent. Contact the dealer.
