  1. I have the top of the line Harman insert and it has yet to make a single heating season reliably..and it’s not cheap to fix either

  2. We would not recommend a Harman stove to anyone. We have put a lot of money into the stove which is only two years old. In the first place, the dealership had two people do the installation and they didn’t know what they were doing. We have had to spend over a thousand bucks to have the stove reinstalled and it just got reinstalled and we will have to have the guy back to fix it because something in it has broken down. This is in Maine where the winters are cold and we are looking forward to a weekend without any heat and we had to wait quite a while to get parts the first time so we have no idea when we will be able to get this stove up and running again. Talk about buyer’s remorse.

  3. We regret getting the Harman P43 and not upgrading to the next highest model. Our neighbor bought a pellet stove at the same time we did. Same installer only he got the model above the P43. We’ve both had them for five years now.

    We bought the P43 years ago for a house that’s just barely over 1,000 sq. ft. We were told that stove was perfect for the house size and open layout. Loved it the first year. Loved the second year, though the combustion fan and auger both went, but the warranty covered the auger so we didn’t have to pay for that. In the third year, the distribution blower fan went. At this point, we were about $400 in repairs and $400 in professional cleanings. We’re into the fifth year now and are at a point where we don’t know if it’s worth fixing it again, The burn pot at the top near the air holes cracked. The combustion fan is also shot again. The ignitor is also starting to have issues, and we were told if we’re doing the burn pot, it makes sense to do them both. All in all, we were quoted about $700 for the repairs. We have a 15-year-old wood stove that’s in better shape and is in perfect working condition, inspected, and the chimney is cleaned. We’re considering going back to wood instead, even if it is more work.

    • Hi Ann, That certainly doesn’t sound like a great experience with the Harman P43! The P43 has a great reputation, and they are usually quite reliable.
      Have you tried contacting Harman direct and let them know the problems you are having? You never know, there might be something they can do!

  4. looking for a pellet stove / boiler, that will work with my in floor heat . the building is 1600sqft . this is my little shop and I can not afford a 10.000 dollar heat system. I need something really simple to operate. I don’t have time to babysit .

    • Hi Marvin, I actually havent done anything with pellet boilers before. But you have got me interested and I will look into it. You will probably see an article that can help you pop up in the next few weeks.
