After 18 years, my Whitfield needs to be replaced. I could spend $400.00 on a control board, as I am pretty sure that is the problem. This stove has run 24/7 from Nov. to April. Once a month I would remove the baffles to clean, run the vac through the pipe. So, I am not having a dirty stove problem. She's just getting sleepy. What woke me up though if the crazy prices out there. I went to the local pellet store dealer, basically, he is the only guy near me, and that is where I bought my Whitfield. Thought this was going to be easy. In this economy, money is a big issue. Didn't really want to spend over 2500.00. There wasn't anything in the showroom less than that. Does anyone have any input. I am liking the Lennox Montage. I thought Harman was priced too high. Really wasn't impressed with the Quadra Fire. I am so lost. Winter is a comin!! Any help would be so appreciated. Thank you.
