Summer's Heat Pellet Stove Reviews
We purchased the 55-shpep model 12-2017 when our old pellet stove that we had for 18 years gave up the ghost. We are very dissatisfied. We are lucky to get 18 hours of burn at a time before we have to shut it down to clean the burn pot; the ash and coals start piling up in front of the feed shute, and then the unburned pellets bounce off to the side and into what passes for an ash drawer. It does not burn hot; the windows are black with soot every time we clean even though we are using the same brand of hardwood pellets we have used the past 5 years that meet the recommendation for this stove. The chimney smoke is black. We have tried adjusting the heat range & blower settings to no avail. Lucky to get living room to 70 degrees. Supposed to heat 2200 sq ft? I think not. The gaskets on the door are unraveling, and the decorative trim in the windows won't stay put. Very disappointed.
Don't waste your time or money on this junk. Please don't!!!!!!!
"My newfound love for heat!"
Great stove, and even better value. I have owned this unit for about 18 months and do not have one bad thing to say about it. The only downside is sometimes the pellets get stuck on their way down the worm gear and you have to clean it out on a regular basis. But that's it, I would certainly recommend this stove, and have!
