Anyone with a Harman Accentra 52i having issues with vibrating heat exchanger covers? I keep adjusting them, but it happens every time I run it. It really sucks to have a new stove and be as annoying with sounds as my old stove.

Are you SURE it's the heat exchangers, and not the hinged side panels? I know my side panels will vibrate if the cast iron bottom cover (that hides the rails) is not properly positioned.
It's hard to imagine that there's a motor in your stove strong enough to vibrate one of those heavy cast heat exchangers.
