    There's a 2 year old P68 for sale on CL. Good deal, assuming there's nothing wrong with it?

    If you decide side to pull the trigger on this, make sure seller can fire it up and run it before you hand over your money.

    Firing it up doesn't always mean it's going to run after a few hours be careful

    True but a Harman P68 is one of the very best and if you can get a good deal, it can be fixed!
    I always end up updating and replacing the circuit board on an older Harman. It always works much better with the latest board!

    If everyone had a p68 this forum probably wouldn’t exist cause nobody would need help with their stoves.

    Not sure but easy to tell. The new Rev F Circuit Boards are pretty new but they finally have a feature that was lacking for many many years that most other brand stoves already have!
    The 2 blink Vacuum error, which is a common problem but up until now more difficult to troubleshoot on a Harman!
    So just remove one of the electrical wires on your vacuum switch and see if you get the 2 blink status when the pellets stove feeding and if you do then bingo, you are all set.
    You can also look on the back of the board and it should say Rev F
    See pics below of Rev E and Rev F boards
    If it does not show a Rev then you have an Oldie!
    The Rev E Board says 2008 and
    The Rev F Board says 2016 but that does not necessarily match the year of the stove. :)
