If your stove has been cleaned including the ESP, I stand by my thoughts above.wil said:The way I see your situation is that you have a few choices, have a Harman tech come with a DDM to determine what component has failed and replace it, add a switch as I did or empty the pellets every time that you want to shut the stove down. I did find in all the Harman stove owners manuals that they mention the best way to shut them down is to let them run out of pellets, I thought this to be odd, I would have thought turning the mode selector switch to off would have been the "best way".
I believe this particular "not shut down" issue is not related to ESP. ESP problem is often very obvious and one would not miss it. I did some testing both Accentra and Advance. When ESP connection loose or not in good contact. Status light would have 3 blinks. The combustion blower and distributions blow would blow air out of order. It tells you the stove is not in working order. If one has doubt on ESP. He can pull the stove out put it outdoor without any pipe connected, clean it and light it up in outdoor. ESP temperature would cool in rapid speed after turn to off. It still would not change the result of "not completely shut down". ESP is just themister is not so easy to be malfunction but often easy target to be blamed. The prime suspect is how the control board process the data it collect.forya said:I DID, he said it was installed correctly, and said I probably needed to clean my stove, that ash could be insulating my ESP probe. That is definitively NOT my issue. you could eat out of my stove right now!
I don't know if anyone has responded to this part of your post since Feb, but I have a new Hartman P43 and it IS UL approved. Yes, it is tested through Omni-Tested Labs and has a ULC designation. ULC is UL Canada and this has a Partnership with UL of the US. This is further validated by the OT-L logo on the stove that has a C on one side of the logo and a US on the other side. My dealer also contacted Harman directly and was told that the stoves ARE UL approved.Lets set the record straight, Harman stoves are not UL listed, they are saftey tested and listed by Omni-Test Laboratories.
