This is an outstanding stove in all areas, and my husband and I have owned a lot of stoves over the years. It's easy to maintain, burns very efficiently and fits in with our cabin wonderfully well.

Same issue as most. Auger motor terribly noisy for the first couple years before it seemed to resolve itself. When I called Thelin a few years back, he acted totally surprised about the noise and claimed he had no idea what could be the issue. Turns out, the problem was quite common. Whatever. Fan now drops speed down to nearly nothing and then surges. Call Thelin this week and discover you can ...

I am not pleased with this stove. I have had my stove 5 years. During that time I have had the ignitor replaced three times (it isn't working now). I was told after I purchased it that the stove is not adaptable to attaching a thermostat, even though there are connections for one--the stove is either burning or its off. There is no temperature control, other than the low, medium and high ...

I recently called the company to get an auger motor for the stove. He told me that there was a list of dealers available to order parts. They want $300 for this auger assembly which is ridiculous. i just need the motor. but he refused to give me any information about the motor. All i wanted was the specs so i could match it up with a compatible motor. He was rude and obnoxious and refused to help ...

It does not have the power to run the auger. these moters are not cheap either. I tried to talk with tec support only to end up running my phone bill up.

As many others have written, stove is in constant need of parts replacement and dealer network is pathetic. We've had ours since 2006 and replaced auger motor twice, fan motor, ignitor,brushes, you name it. Now it's got some kind of electrical glitch that I can't figure out and the original dealer we bought it from is unreachable. In the past Thelin would talk you through repairs but after ...

Dear Mr. Coghlans: I first must apologize. I gave you some wrong information. I have had my stove for 9 years not 7 years. I have talked to other pellet stove owners who say they use their stoves 6 to 8 months of the year and burn anywhere from 3 tons to 5 tons of pellets a year (50 - 40 pound bags to a ton) They have owned non Thelin stoves for 5 to 15 years with no structural damage ...

My stove is about 5 years old. It ran well for the first winter, then the fun began. We have replaced the mother board, sensors, fan (more than once) and countless ignitor rods. I cant' remember if we have replaced the auger motor or not. I assume we have or it will be the next thing to go. It's impossible to find a local person who will service it. We clean it at least twice a week trying to ...

Cute stove, but it has been a huge expenditure every single year, and always right around christmas when money is shortest and the weather is coldest. I have replaced the auger motor 3 times at 225 a pop, and now this year a week before christmas the fan motor has gone out. Worst purchase I have ever made, and I think of how many stoves I could have bought with the money I have sunk into this ...

This is a good looking pellet stove but it doesn't heat our 100 year old two story farm house very well. Had to have the motor replaced in the first year along with the auger. Called the manufacturer about the heating problem and they told us that we couldn't get good quality pellets in our area in NC. Wish I had known that before hand. It is not easy to clean and it is a very messy job. ...

I have owned and used a parlour 3000 since 2002. I run it 24/7 except for the one hour cool down and vacuum once or twice a week during the heating season. About every 4 to 5 years I have to replace the feed and air motors for $200. I like it a lot and don't even see it on the electric bill(27 watts)/<$5.00 a month. It burns all available brands of pellets as long as you know how to watch it and ...

After less than two years, the fan went out. Because I'm in a rural area, no service techs could be found for several weeks. I paid for 3 service calls and then the auger went out (this is 2 weeks later). A $3,000. product that lasts less than two years is more than planned obselescence or bad design; it's fraud. Don't get it for the looks; it doesn't work.

I am so unhappy with this stove. My local Hearth & Home store doesn't even sell them anymore. I have spent more money on replacing parts,(my husband is a heat tech so the labor is free) it makes me sick. Every year its always something. Now the auger is acting up. I should have just purchased a new boiler. It would have been cheaper and ALOT LESS hassle.

I dig this stove - it's got the look of a classic enamel wood stove, but without having to cut and stack wood. Sensitive to grade of pellets - lower quality pellets have built up ash very quickly. The fire pot is not big, so ash clogs it up quickly. Good quality oak or hickory pellets are recommended. Can raise the temperature ofa room 10 degrees in about an hour on medium. Seems to run most ...

They better do something about the fan in this stove. I have to replace the $200. fan every other season and it's a pain. Mr Thelin has informed me that the reason for the fan failure is because it runs for extended periods of time. I know that eight hours a day during the winter months is more than my bathroom fan but so far I've gotten 25 years out that one. I'm considering taking the fan out ...
