Avalon Arbor
Two years after purchasing my Avalon Arbor wood stove it had a crack in the upper lid, a gap between the front doors, both side fire bricks were broken and the rear mounted fan did not work. Basically the stve had to be rebuilt. I was also shown how to clean it properly. This required the entire "box" to be dismantled. The would not cover the fan to be fixed or replaced as it was considered a post production add on. Now three years after the above date all the same things are wrong with the addition of the combustion chamber needing to be replaced. The company states the combustion chamber and the fire bricks are consumables, the broken lid is my fault as I probably dropped it. I have never had the fan fixed and if I would have known what it would take to maintain this stove, I would not have purchased it. I have owned wood stoves for the past 30 years and none of the required the "consumable" replacements this stove has required. I thought I just had a lemon, but after talking with the company I see it is part of the design. Nice stove as long as you want to spend about $800.00 every 2 - 3 years.
