Room Size (Sq ft): 1000 | House Size (Sq feet): 1800
Bought in 2013 , Price Paid: 3000
Location : albany, NY 12193, United States
Purchased from: Stove Dealer - Woodburning Warehouse

Likes: Good styling, best side clearance

Dislikes: Unreliable Metering/Chopping motor.

Comments: Original unit was unable to chop pellets, dealer gets bad review here because they asserted I purchased inferior pellets which caused the malfunction (they do not sell pellets and I tried brands from all the usual outlets.) Resolved that the original was defective and replaced entire unit. A short time later motor failed again, dealer replaced. Ran satisfactory for two seasons, early last season motor again failed ( the output shaft sheared from the drive gear) and was out of warranty, $147.00 cost. Replacement appeared significantly more robust, today motor failed again. Defective product DONOT BUY.
