Totally agree, harman should respond here. I know that I like my stove, but the woofing noise would be enough to make me not recommend it to someone else. If I had to do it over again, I'd probably buy the quad classic bay. I know, harman and quad are both owned by HHT. Seems like some decent engineers at Harman could come up with a solution, a retrofit fan, or some type of modification. Let's see if they respond, if not maybe we start a concerted email or letter writing effort to get their response.
