    Harman P38 w/3 Knob Board

    Thanks. Next warm spell I'll look at it. The old board did have an adjustment, looking on line at pics of the new board I think it's programmed into the board, as I see no adjustment.. I"d like to idle it a little higher as I tend to get blue-ish smoke at times..

    Pellet Stove power backup? What do you use?

    I have a Cyberpower Sine Wave UPS. It will run my Harman for over an hour automatically, until I get my Champion 2000 watt inverter generator running. Also Harman started having their stoves go into shut down mode if / when they get " dirty" generator power, not sure when but it should list...

    Introduction: New Breckwell SPC50, many questions for install

    Great thread. Beautiful stove. Looked at them when Nu-Tec had them, Upland 207, but my situation couldn't make it work. As for power outage, I'd look into a UPS such as Cyberpower, if i recall your stove uses very little power... Although you may not need it, test it , unplug the stove and see.

    Piazzetta/ pellet woes

    Welcome. Someone should be along to assist you...however, I would think that you'd be able to burn soft, hard, or mix of pellets..possibly with control adjustments as needed, which should be in the manual. If you can't get assistance from the dealer, who has little experience, then I would...

    Harman p43 moans

    Your combustion blower has sealed bearings. Unfortunately you are due for a replacement since mine lasted 5 years. Only thing you can do is be sure the impeller is clean and vacuum around the motor. I keep an extra one on hand and bearings..

    control board repair service?

    Since no one else chimed in, only thing I can think of if you are sure it's the relay, not the power feeding it, maybe get a number off it and have an electronics person replace it. Or if a cover comes off it maybe gently file the contacts if burnt... good luck. Not many people out there...
