    Harman Advance

    Thank you, I have that picture but it doesn’t show how all the parts interlock together. Also my side glass only has a gasket on three sides. The picture shows a rectangular gasket. I bought the stove from a dealer as a showroom model and now I’m wondering if the changed the gaskets before and...

    Harman Advance

    i have a 2010 Harman Advance and today I changed the ash pan gasket and the door gasket. Does anyone have a diagram or have you found a video of how the glass and all the clips get put back together? I placed all the parts the way I took them out but now I can’t get them back together. I’ve...

    Alright, I give in..

    Hopefully Ssyko can repair your board. Not sure what Bob was talking about that I had said that makes no sense. If it was about my friends stove having a fuse in the ground wire to the igniter and the auger not stopping when the door was open that was exactly what the Harman technician told him...

    Alright, I give in..

    With your stove I can’t positively say but on a Harman P-68 the ground wire goes to a vacuum switch and a buddy of mine put the fuse in in the ground wire by mistake and the auger wouldn’t shut off when the hopper door or the stove door was open. Not sure what safety devices are on your stove...

    Alright, I give in..

    If I counted right by looking at your board and using the wire schematic Ssyko posted the section that has damage is where the hot wire that feeds the igniter is attached to the circuit board. That’s the wire I would put the inline fuse in. You should double check to make sure I counted over...

    Alright, I give in..

    I’m not sure what shorted out before but maybe it was something with the circuit board that started all your problems. Did you ever check the resistance on the original igniter or bench test it ? Maybe you could find a used circuit board off a junk stove to try before you invest in a new one. Or...

    Alright, I give in..

    I’m not familiar with that stove so maybe the other guys that have been helping you will jump in with their thoughts. If it doesn’t matter which wire goes where on the igniter one is still a hot wire and one is the ground. You would want the fuse in the hot wire side. Once you have the new...

    Alright, I give in..

    You can use a meter to check continuity on the igniter wires. The problem would be if there is a bare spot it may not be touching the frame of the stove all the time. If it was me and I was going to install a new circuit board and igniter I would replace the wires to the igniter. I would also...

    Alright, I give in..

    Could there be a bare spot on the igniter wires somewhere that you can’t see and it’s touching metal ? If there is it could’ve shorted out the the circuit board and tripped your breaker. I would think it would blow the main fuse in the pellet stove before it would trip a breaker but you never...

    Alright, I give in..

    Are you checking for voltage at the igniter or where it plugs in to the circuit board ? Maybe a wire is broke between the board and igniter or a loose wire at the circuit board ? Just trying to think of anything else it could be. I’m not familiar with your stove but I’ve worked on older pellet...

    Alright, I give in..

    You say you checked it with the stove running and there’s no voltage. Did you check for voltage when the stove first starts up when the igniter should be working? After the stove is running and up to temperature there shouldn’t be any voltage going to the igniter. If there’s no voltage on start...

    Is this normal?

    My Harman Advance looks like that when it’s really cold out and i have it cranked up so it’s burning efficiently. When it’s warmer outside and I turn my stove down the soot and ash is nearly black. Also every brand pellet burns a little different than another.

    Don't wait to order Barefoot pellets this year

    Don't wait to preorder Barefoot pellets this year. They produce their pellets from a very controlled source of sawdust and they are limited in their production volume. With the hard and cold winter, there is no back inventory AND preordering is already going on. My dealer in NY said he...

    Austraflamm Wega

    I have a 1991 Austraflamm Wega pellet stove that I’m debating on selling. I’ve looked online to see how much they are going for but haven’t found that many out there for sale. My stove is in great condition with new door and ash pan gaskets, auger motor, burn pot and had the control board...

    Alright, I give in..

    I’ve been following your post and read what you you guys said about dirty pellets creating more ash. I have a 2010 Harman Advance and have burned pellets from Lowe’s and Home Depot and haven’t had very good luck with them. The place I purchased the stove from sells hardwood pellets so three...

    Harman P68 pellet stove

    Couple questions my friend just told me the tech said it didn’t matter which way you plugged the igniter into the circuit board. He should probably check the board to see which is the hot side before installing the fuse correct ? Also does anyone know where he can send his circuit boards to be...

    Harman P68 pellet stove

    A local pellet stove company sent a tech to fix my friends stove. He replaced the circuit board and check the wires and igniter and said everything was fine. He ran the stove in test mode and said it was fixed. After the tech left we started the stove up and as soon as the igniter started to...

    Harman P68 pellet stove

    The stove had been unplugged for 2 days so he just plugged it back in and tried it. It still feeds pellets when the lid is opened. I told him to try it in test mode and it does the same thing. The status light wasn’t blinking at all

    Harman P68 pellet stove

    A friend of mine has a P68 stove and the other day after he cleaned it he started it back up and the igniter just started to smolder and then everything stopped working. He found a 6 amp fuse was blown so he replaced it with a new fuse. Now the stove runs but not correctly. The auger motor runs...

    Harman Advance auger motor

    Yesterday my stove started making a low screeching sound. After a little investigating it was making this noise after the auger motor cycled and started to slow down. I pulled the back covers of the stove and found 2 bolts completely backed out of the auger motor and the noise was coming from...

    Harman Advance

    Thanks for the replies. I realize cheap pellets won’t burn as hot and efficient as good pellets but like I said above my two buddies get 9 tons each of a cheaper hardwood pellet and they burn phenomenal in their P68 stoves. They can go a month without cleaning the stove and the heat output is...

    Harman Advance

    I have a Harman Advance pellet stove I purchased 3 years ago. It’s a 2010 model that was in a showroom so it was practically new. It didn’t come with a user manual but the dealer went over everything with me. My problem is the dealer told me the feed rate should be set at 3 and not to adjust it...
