HASH(0xa71cb96c) out of 5 stars These stoves do not heat!!! Dec 9 2008
By Audrey - Published on
Where do I start with this stove? We bought two, US Stove models 5500 and the 5500XL from Northern Tool Co.
1. Both units are not flush across the front, when placing a straight edge across the front leaves a gap in the middle in the middle of the unit up to a 1/16 of an inch. The cast door is straight, but when closed across the front of the stove unit produces a gap in the middle of the unit that allows a clear view into the firebox onmodel 5500. I called Customer Service at US Stoves they wanted pictures of the installation and a narrative which I provided before they would do anything. I then called Northern Tool and they notified US Stoves who then sent me a new rope gasket. The 5500XL is missing 3 inces of rope gasket along the bottom of the firebox door.
2. Each stove burns a bag a day, but produces little heat no matter what the setting is at. I have experienced other pellet type stoves owned by friends and have noted that they burn at a rate that warms the room to excess. I feel much of the heat is disappearing up the stove pipe. My son placed a wet towel on a chair in front of the stove blower to dry and it eventually did after an extended period. The towel was not hot to the touch. The stove pipe is a double wall vent kit by Simpson Dura-Vent installed in accordance to NFPA 211 and inspected by the County Building and Codes Department.
3. Igniting both stoves are a continual problem. Stove pellets do not ignite readily, causing the operator to empty the pellet tray, and start the ignition process over and over. This can take 10 to 20 minutes, often times we give up in exasperation. Pellets spill over the pellet tray and fall into the combustion chamber. The pellets can only be retrieved by vacuuming them out which results in wasted pellets. A customer service rep at US Stoves, named Christy, says this is nromal!
4. Ash build up is expected and is vacuumed as needed at least several times per week. The area under the pellet box builds up with ash and is inaccessible to routine cleaning.
5. Stove is warranted and an extended warranty was purchased in addition to the factory warranty. But Northern Tools and US Stoves will not back their product without the customer going to great lengths to prove their case. We just want a stove that works and now that winter is here, we are stuck with a stove that DOES NOT!

HASH(0xa7a11978) out of 5 stars No major complaints Dec 31 2009
By A. Whitford - Published on
I purchased this unit about 3 years ago to help take the chill off in my big old house. I did not buy a stove to use as my soul source of heat, which is probably why I like mine. I use a forced air oil furnace as my primary heat set at 65ish and use this stove to supplement. It is very loud, I do have to say that. The blower is loud and the auger feed is noisy. Im sure that those noises are not any worse than average for a pellet stove. What is very noisy and annoying is the thing vibrates now and then. It seems to come and go and correlates with blower fan speed. If it did not have that vibration noise, I would like my stove much better. The other complaint I have is the igniters go up like candy. I have replaced 1 a year so far. This year I replaced it and about 3 months later it was burnt up again. My wife called the company and they said they had a bad batch of igniters and sent us a free one. I have to give them props for that, but that does nothing as far as all the other ones I have had to buy. The flame quality that this thing puts out seems much better than a couple of other pellet stoves I have seen in use. I would say the stove puts out the heat I was expecting and maintenance seems pretty easy for me. My next purchase will be a furnace style pellet stove to replace my oil one and it will be through US Stove Company. If this stove didnt vibrate and eat igniters I would give it a 5 star.

HASH(0xa79b62ac) out of 5 stars Not a fan of the fans Jan. 15 2011
By Grade "A" shopper - Published on
I purchased my king pellet stove at tractor supply. when I first started it I was suprised by the amount of heat it produced. it has been working good in this fridged Connecticut weather and is heating the space adequately and looks good. However, the fans , both the exhaust and the room fan are ridiciously loud. I am an electrical contractor and deal with fans all the time. I plan to suggest to US stove to come out with replacement fans of higher quality ( I would pay to upgrade them ) because other than that this unit is a home run . 1.5 bags a day thats about $7 per day. Good riddens oil company!

HASH(0xa6e17864) out of 5 stars My investment... April 22 2011
By angel - Published on
First I started out buying my stove at Tractor Supply at a steal @ 990.00.King brand. It freed my weekends at holding three bags.That's where I will start.Then I priced around for the pellets.Meijer M-perks 20% + On sale for 20.So I buy 2 skids.The pellets you buy makes the stove not the stove makes the pellets.I had to clean daily with tractor supply,but weekly with meijer.All in all it is the pellets quality.American Wood pellets brand.
Love buying American pellets they last longer.220.00 for five months.Thanks King for my weekends!

HASH(0xa71ab054) out of 5 stars Fire Hazard Warning for King 5500M March 8 2012
By abostongirl - Published on
I feel obligated to post this warning about a serious fire hazard I found on my new King 5500M pellet stove. For a little background I have been battling this stoves burn since I got it in Oct 2011. After several calls they sent me replacement gaskets which I installed and through a forum I found what is likely to be the real problem the feed rate... If you have a problem with the burn pot filling up manually adjust the feed rate(something never mentioned by the manufacturer after a dozen calls).

So I change the gaskets and adjust the feed rate last night and the stove runs pretty good, shut it down today and I notice smoke coming out of the bottom of the stove so I look and find piles of ash on both of the front corners of the stove, the side that has smoke pouring out also has a few half burnt pellets... thinking wtf did the stove crack? I vacuum the stove out for a better look to find 2 perfectly drilled holes right through the bottom of the stove. Call the company again to hear "Oh there are suppose to be bolts there" then WHY aren't they there???? Mind you I have been running this stove for 6 months and had no idea this stove could have burnt my house down! Not to mention all the trouble I have been going through to get it more "air-tight". Check your stove it could be a fire hazard.
