    Harman Hopper Lid Switch - Where does black wire go?

    Accentra not blowing heat….I have a wire not attached. My thought would be it goes to the Distribution Blower, although the “4th” corner is not labeled and doesn’t seem to have a post. Thoughts?? It looks like it goes to the lid switch…could it be affecting the heat not blower? I believe blower...

    Anyone Using a Pure Sine Inverter for Harman Accentra ?

    I have a Harman Accentra and have been thinking about battery backup for power outages. We do have a generator, but in the event that fails, we want battery backup.

    Did I really update my TC53i software / firmware?

    I updated the firmware in my new Stove per the instructions on Hartman’s Website and the firmware update ran without issue and I booted back into the touch panel. https://www.harmanstoves.com/Products/Accentra52i-TC-Pellet-Insert.aspx So I am trying to figure out from Diagnostics screen 5/6 if...

    Harman 52i - TC Newbie

    Hello, Brand new to pellet stoves and I just got a Harman 52i-tc pellet insert installed. Seems like I have an awful lot of clinkers using barefoot pellets.

    A p61a, accentra 52i, and a serenity walk into a stone house.... looking for advice

    Hello! I have a few questions about what would be the best setup for some new stoves I've acquired this summer. I got a castle serenity back in January and it paid for itself this past winter with a 1000 dollar savings of oil. So instead of paying another $4500 for the hotwater baseboard to...

    Ash in hot air output with Harman Accentra

    I recently installed a 2008 Harman Accentra insert. I followed the manufacturer's instruction, installing a chimney liner, and sealing the damper with sheet metal and rock insulation. I wrapped the bottom portion of the flex tubing with ceramic insulation. The pellet stove seems to work well...

    Sound Wars! How loud is a Quadra-Fire Castile VS a Mt. Vernon vs an Accentra?

    I have a Quadra-fire Castile insert, and I have a friend who is interested in getting a pellet stove as well. I run my Castile on high most of the time to keep up ( I probably bought to small, but that's another matter). I always hear that the MVAE and E2 are so quiet. I have never seen one in...
