auto ignition does not work.
It should be noted we have only use the pellets the dealer sold us when we purchased the stove.(the most expensive ones they sell, ( Okanagan)
Noisy when fan is on,(real loud)
Started a deep tone rattle after one month
Dealer wants 300 bucks to come fix it,even though its one month old.


Comments: My first pellet stove and I wish I stuck with a wood stove.
I cant believe I spent over 4 grand on this thing and the manufacturer wont do anything to fix it after only one month of use.
