When it has worked, it produces very little heat. I am waiting for parts now, six days; tonight is will be 2 degrees below and a chill factor of -20. I am not pleased. I called after I got home from work and they are closed. I went to the ...

I did replace the burn pot and box finally last year but that was not a failure I just did it and saved the old one as a backup. I am extremely happy with this beast of burden.

bought stove in 2006. No problems. First year used oak hard wood pellets. Last 3 years have used pecan pellets. Good heat and much less ash and less cleaning than other types of pellets. House is IPS construction and usually only run stove part of the day. 0 replacement parts. Usually use 1/2 ton per year. Love the heat. Planning to install thermostat this year. House is 1635 sq. ft.

I am thinking about buying another one to put in our livingroom.

We bought a Big E Home Heater last year. It ran for about 4 months before parts started failing on it. We've replaced the combustion blower twice and the control panel three times, and it continues to malfunction. Currently waiting for Breckwell to get back to us on how they will resolve this, although at this point, we really just want a refund so we can get a stove that actually works. In a ...
