I just love the heat that comes out of our Harvester Corn and Wood Pellet stove. Sure, it took a little bit of education to get the hang of it but once we followed American Energy Systems advice on fresh air and good quality fuel we are not having any operational problems. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone that wants a dependable product and a company that has great technical ...

Our Harvester is 6 years old now and it's been nothing but a pain in the neck requiring constant cleanings and expensive but shoddy parts to keep running. We have tried a number of fuels and have settled on a 20%/80% mix of corn/pellet as the best burn solution but it still will only last 2-5 days before it requires a stiff cleaning taking hours. It'll block up the burn pot and won't clear ...

We have had our Harvester for more than 12 years now and have not had very much trouble at all. We replaced an auger motor when that darn nail got caught in the auger and the terrible wood pellet fuel has been a pain but the unit still chugs through it all and has saved us thousands of dollars in heating bills. Since American Energy Systems bought up the company in 2008 we have seen an ...

I have owned a Harvester for about 4 years now and must say that when American Energy Systems bought up this product line they really improved the way that it operates, improved the electronics and their tech savy is number 1. In 4 years we have not had anything go wrong. I have come to the conclustion that if you follow what the manufacturer says, burn clean and good fuel and install it ...

I have been providing Tech service for Country Flame Harvester units for over 20 years now. What I find is that whenever the units are not installed, maintained or operated correctly you will have problems. Thousands of customers that we help are delighted with the product, especially after we help them understand that you cannot burn carbage fuel and cannot ignore the manufacturers ...

Purchased a Harvester in 2006. I have replaced micro chip, room blower, 2 augers (cannot replace just the rear bushing) and 6 auger motors. When replacing the auger the second time also replaced the auger motor bracket. Found the original bracket was welded off center. Just took delivery of a new St. Croix stove yesterday. Got 2 tons of pellets as trade for the Harvester(would have settled ...

UpDate - All is well, Control Panel was bad and in a comedy of errors the tech mistakenly replaced my good motor with a defunct used one. New control panel came in, motor exchanged and we are burning corn again, warm and toasty.

I bought our stove in 2005 and we have had very good luck with ours until now. Country Flame was bought by AES and many or all of the former CF dealers are no more. I now thought I needed an agitator motor, paid for a replacement installed and the stove does not work. I'm now waiting for AES to test the control panel circuit board to see if they can isolate the problem It's a real shame because ...

Auger motor on my Harvester also went out. I am disappointed in the stove and in the company I bought it from. After 6 weeks, I don't have the part I need and the people at Fireplaces Unlimited in Lubbock, TX won't return my calls. Advice anyone?
