    203 Bags of Cubex just delivered, its never to early:)

    Thanks for the feedback. I was hoping they would've fixed their issues and go back to the pellets that they were once well known for. I guess they'll still heat up your home.... You'll just need to scape the burnpot once or twice a day.

    Harman P61a Ignitor Replacement

    I'm looking to buy a spare ignitor. How much did you pay for the ignitor? I wouldn't know what to do if I needed to replace it either. I'd be searching the forums instructions on how to replace it.

    Fan Speeds on Harmans...

    Pellet consumption stays the same. I leave my fan on low. Do most people keep it on high? Maybe I should try it on high?

    Cleaning Question

    I've seen it get sticky too when it gets warm as it did the last couple of days. It happens more often in the spring. It'll be gone once you get the fire going again.
