Harman Accentra
After 1- 1/2 years we do not have an insert in our fireplace.. We have replaced igniter, fuse, and still have no stove. The co. We purchased this from , on orders from Harman, have taken our stove back to "the shop" to go over it with a fine toothed comb.. This has been going on for over a month.. How long should it take to find the problem? There are not many parts in the stove... I will NEVER buy another Harman stove again. All I get from the co. Is that they are waiting to hear from Harman then Harman says to work with the stove co. to resolve the issue... I do t think this stove worked correctly from day one.
