Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by growamy4886 Has some flaws
We bought this stove to replace a really old whitfield. I now want my whitfield back! This new stove has several flaws...
1st: it has to be reset all the time, meaning the little red light is flashing AGAIN now i need to figure out what's wrong.
2nd: There were several times it just wouldn't ignite and sometimes it wouldn't feed pellets.
3rd: Several times when it didnt ignite it kept feeding pellets and they piled up inside making a big mess to clean out and try to start all over again
4th: The fan can be really loud. I think the auger was kind of loud too.
One good thing about this stove is that it heated (when i decided to work properly) my 1100 sq ft house nicely. Ive only had this thing 2 month and I'm returning it!

We like this stove. We haven't had to go through a really cold time with it yet. We like having the thermostat so it doesn't stay running all the time. One thing we dislike is that you can't completely fill the hopper because the mechanism that holds the top up goes down into the hopper and won't if it is full.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NorthernCalifornia2016 Clean lines, quiet
In reading reviews, the only complaint I saw was people had a hard time getting it off the shipping pallet. This must have been fixed because it was easy to remove, just four bolts. Once we hooked it up we were pleased with how quiet it was. I love the auto ignite feature. It regulates the temperature, turning itself on and off. Fill it up and let it go for a couple of days. The lid has a safety feature that when lifted, ceases dropping pellets. Nice. Same thing when the door is open. I saw this priced several hundred dollars more at many places on line. Home Depot had the best price and the shipping to my door was reasonable.

We upgraded from an old whitfield.(had basic options) to this new pleasant Hearth. It has auto ignition and thermostat control so I just set my 'comfort zone' and let it go...only thing I have to do is fill it with pellets. It also heats my house much better than the old one. Now onto the bad: the fan and auger motor are slightly louder than my old one. Next was on the 2nd night we had it running the auger got jammed (that never happened with the old one) and we woke up in the middle of the night freezing but it hasn't happened again yet) and lastly there is no pull out/removable ash pan. There is an area just below and around the burn pot that the ash collects than you have to vacuum it out. But despite the bad things I listed I would definitely recommend this stove...especially for the price. I shopped at a local fireplace store and the cheapest pellet stove they carried was $2,999! I could purchase 2 of these pleasant heath stoves and have money left over for pellets.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Marc No customer support...
The stove works good now that I solved a few of issues. Pleasant Hearth (PH) has no customer support. If you call PH (877-447-4768) you will get someone in India who has no idea how to fix a problem. They kept saying in broken English "you need to clean you stove". Email PH (at email@example.com) but they will never respond. I'm disappointed in HD for having a supplier like PH.....

This stove is perfect. It heats my 1,500 SQ. FT. home great. I originally purchased another stove from Lowes, because they had one in the store, and I didn't want to wait for shipping. What a big mistake! After 2 days the igniter went out, and it was very noisy. I decided to order this stove and received it in five days, so I returned the other one. I could not believe the difference. This stove was the exact same price, and is at least 10 times better! It looks better, uses less pellets, heats better, and is a lot quieter.
I wish I would have bought this stove first. Could have saved me a lot of trouble! If you are looking for a pellet stove in this SQ. FT. range, this is definitely the stove to buy! You will love it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyAndWarm We LOVE our new Pellet Stove
We LOVE our new pellet stove. After years of cutting firewood, hauling firewood, stacking firewood, bringing firewood into our house, and then cleaning up the mess...and not always having the heat we wanted, this is HEAVEN. It is easy to use and easy to regulate. It's warming up some here in California now so we just turn it on when we get up to get the chill out of the house and then turn it off later and it stays warm most of the day.
The fan circulates the heat out into the house...unlike our Franklin Fireplace did. We LOVE IT!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JrHawk Awesome stove, works great, easy to clean, easy to install
For the price, this cant be beat. Great little stove. Was simple to install. Drilled two holes throught the wall for the air intake and chimney. Installed and started within 2 hrs.
Easy to use, self lighting, regulates temp, looks nice, only hot around firebox, back and sides are cool, easy to clean, simple, good instructions. can move with two people.
not great temp control (better than a wood buring fireplace), somtimes when you turn the temp down, it turnes off first and then relights.
