Hi, I am a fairly new pellet stove user. I got my Harman Accentra this past march after ordering it in march. I love the pellets, they are easy to store, to carry and to feed the stove. I also love the automatization of the stove itself, basically it can work on its own and keep a constant temp with very little/none human intervention besides filling the hopper. Only drawback is that I find the Accentra design to be flawed regarding the ash conatiner, it should cover the whole bottom and not have that box in the middle, ashes get everywhere at the bottom and it is a pain to clean. The other negative factor I find about the stove is the technology used. It is impressive that the stove can work on its own, but I find that the user (me) still ahve alot of control on how the stove operates (I am talking about the control box). Because the stove is fully automatic, I shouldnt have the option to fiddle with the controls. It should detect the best settings and output most heat the most efficient way. Another thing is that the manual doesnt not explain how the changinf the settings affect the stove. The control box allows the stove to oeprate in either manual or auto mode and in any of these modes it also allows to either be controlled by a temp sensor or by constant internal stove temp, which both can be determined with the temp dial. Also fan speed and auger feed can be both set up. Now to throw into the mix and this is not explained in the manual, the stove can and will override the settings if its too hot, or the feeder is not fast enough, etc. So what is the point of having the choice if the stove will just override it whenever it feels like it? Better yet why just not leave the fan blower on max speed and the auger speed on 6 and let the stove do the rest? The settings used on my stove was auto mode, room temp, auger feed at 4 and fan blower speed middle setting. Are these the most efficient settings to keep a constant temp and burn less pellets?
