Comments: Dealer. While a great guy and super friendly and helpful he contracts installs out. Issue have to be dealt with installer who is always booked a minimum of two weeks out

I’ve been having issues with it lately. Last year I noticed that the door wouldn’t seal even when the latch is adjusted and only in the top right corner. Had it checked out and they replaced it under warranty. Checked it again this year 2018 and it is doing it again. Lopi is saying it was most likely overfired which it wasn’t and actually used less this last year than before. Possibly took out the combustor as it has fallen apart. Will see what they say here soon. Can’t load it very full as it’s only an easy to west loader.

I rushed buying a stove and didn’t really shop around so if I had to do it again I probably wouldn’t have picked this one. Lesson learned
