    Harman XXX shut down on Manual...Why?

    I've owned a Harman since 07, mine appeared to shut down a while back as you mention here. I tried & checked everything & still at times I would find the stove off. It turned out to be one small pellet was keeping the hopper door open from time to time causing the auger not to run. Not sure if...

    HARMAN ACCENTRA 52I PELLET INSERT AUGER NOISE

    WHAT HE SAID!! Sounds like carbon build up, I use a long handle flat blade screwdriver, just be careful around the auger! Try to clean the 360 degree area

    Harman P68 - 3 years old

    I tried & tried to use room temp when I first got the stove, noticed I used way more pellets than I did with my Whitfield, so I use stove temp unless our electric is out. Note: If the pellet stove was my only means of heat, I too would run in room temp!

    Just bought a used Harman Accentra insert

    Congrats on the purchase, if you have the power cord I'd take it outside & try to run it in test mode to verify the fans & auger work, then I'd try firing it up to see if it actually works

    Harman P68 - 3 years old

    I'm curious.... do you also allow your cloths dryer to exhaust out into your house, during the winter months??? Same theory/principal here too I use a filter to catch the last of the lent, you can't imagine how nice that warm/humid air is!

    Harman P68 - 3 years old

    Feed Rate does not matter when in "RoomTemp", the computer/ room temp sensor is in control. I have a newer home, very well insulated and do pretty much the opposite of what you do. I run stove temp 95% of the time, when it gets down into the low teens or colder I switch over to room temp. Room...

    New Harman Accentra 52i not burning well

    I clean below the burn pot before every fire & only pull my stove out to clean exhaust pipe once a year, I learned, after owning the stove for 2-3 years, that you have to take a rubber mallet or the handle of a screw driver & tap/hit on the exhaust pipe to get all the ash out of the pipe! Just...

    Installing a pellet stove into an existing fireplace

    Draw the air for the OAK from the chimney, as well, not sure of your chimney dimensions but it is possible to do it this way! The exhaust pipe for my Harman is only 5' but if you do try to run the OAK from the chimney the exhaust pipe would need to be longer

    Burn pot replacement

    I see the spot you are referring to, on the left side. I would remove pot & weld it; I realize you may not have a welder but I would just McGuyver it!

    Accentra Insert - Settings

    I am not a fan of "Room TEMP" mode, I feel it uses more pellets, but it does burn hotter, actually it was 5*F a few nights ago & I did have it on room temp & the dang thing kicked the fan off when my heat pump kicked in; I like you also use my stove for supplemental heat. I typically run the...

    Alternative to Room Temp Sensor?

    So your Tstat is a 2 wire? You plug the black wire from Harman's probe into stove, red from probe into white of Tstat & then red wire from Tstat into stove? Am I seeing your picture correctly???

    I have burned many different brands over the years, Greenways for the last 2, mainly used Somersets, Country Boys, but last year when the -15*F was forecasted I purchased 25 bags from my local TSC that were FREEDOM PELLETS, they were junk.

    A tip for Harmon users filling the hopper

    This may have been discussed, but I was filling my hopper & had a pellet get on the back side of the hopper door, the door did not to shut completely so the auger would not run & my fire went out. Had the stove since 07 & this had never happened, I was about to pull the stove & start tearing it...
