Customer reviews for 2,000 sq. ft. Multi Fuel Stove

2,000 sq. ft. Multi Fuel Stove

First introduced in 2001 as our first multi fuel stove, the 6041 American Harvest stove has evolved into one of the most sophisticated heating appliances on the market. Not only is it capable of burning compressed wood pellets, it can also burn corn, soy beans, cherry pits, olive pits, bio mass fuel grains, and processed silage with just a few simple adjustments. The American Harvest 6041 is mobile home approved (with use of Fresh Air Kit, sold separately) and is extremely easy to install.

No, I do not recommend this product.
We have had this model for three seasons now and it has been nothing but trouble. I am an experienced mechanic and I am very good with all thing mechanical, this stove is troublesome. We had to replace the board and a wiring harness 1st year and an ignitor the second year and right off the bat this year (3rd) the ignitor took a dump. I service this stove frequently to include a once a year total cleaning and lubrication of all moving parts. I don't mind keeping things clean and lubricated but this is crazy! If you are mechanically challenged don't buy this stove. Oh yes I forgot the front glass seal is shot too.
Pros: Looks Great, puts out a lot of heat
Cons: Difficult to Use, Not Durable

This stove has been working well and was easy to install. It quit once, but I believe that is normal, and believe I had too much air coming in (like any stove it has an adjustable air intake). Beware to anyone who is thinking of buying a pellet stove and not having any work to do, or that it will be like turning on a gas furnace. It is easy, but takes figuring out a bit, tweaking to get what you want out of it.
ALSO, it does not heat like my 2 wood stoves. I figured it could keep the area I was putting it in warm and it can't keep up with the cold (keeps it in the lower 60's at least). I have the advantage of having had a stove in the very place before, a Yodel Castine, which easily heated this side of our home. But I knew, and anyone purchasing should, that there are too many factors involved to really know how well it will work in your home until you get it-- it's the risk you take. It is running well and putting out good heat, just not enough to be sufficient with all my windows. I guess it does loose a star in my rating because of this-- it doesn't seem to heat as big of an area as advertised. I have a 2500 sf home that is very old, restored, little insulation, but I also have a Yodel Oslo (big) heating the major part of the house, and hoped that this pellet stove would take care of the rest... not so. Not quite the amount of heat I had hoped for. But a good stove regardless for the price.

I purchased this stove during the summer and installed it myself and I am very pleased with its performance. It keeps my 1800 square foot cape at 68-70 degrees all the time. I clean it once a week, add pellets daily and it works great.

No, I do not recommend this product.
It was easy to set up.I don't like how hard it is to move in and out the air adjustment and the two clean outs for the pan, have also side in and out. there is A really high pitch sound that comes from the agitator.I called about it and didn't get A good answer two fix it I also don't under stand the fresh air intake because it still uses in side air
Pros: Easy to Install, Looks Great, Stylish
