This is my second 6041 pellet stove purchase. It puts out a lot of heat and I live in northern Minnesota. It's not the highest quality pellet stove but the price is right. I bought my first one five years ago so I know what can go wrong and I now know how to fix it. It does require regular cleaning but that's ok with me.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Zetti Stove ok, US Stove Co. not so great
When we got this stove we were given an insert by the manufacturer, US Stove. It took over a month to get the correct one through no fault of Home Depot. It was US Stove, they wouldn't send us the correct stove, the one we bought, until someone came to pick up the stove they sent wrong in the first place. Once this was installed (used it for about 3 months) the igniter went bad and we had to start it by hand until US Stove sent us a new igniter. Now we have had it for 1 year 1 month, it's beginning to get cold again so we began using it again. We have only used it about 8 days and the igniter is no longer working but because we are 1 month over the 1 year warranty US stove will not send us a new igniter. It looks like we are going to need to replace the igniter every 4 months or so ($80 each) or just start it by hand, one of the reasons we didn't get a wood stove in the first place. The stove is nice enough but TERRIBLE customer service from US STOVE.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Runaround owned for 2 years and have had some problems
Does heat well, but be prepared to buy the igniter every few years we are on our 2ed one, our first went out 2 months after our 1 year warranted was up. and we only use the stove for about 5 month's of the year. 4 times now our stove ran out of pellets and the smoke goes up out our Auger tube and threw the top lid, smoke alarms blaring Contacted Customer service at USSC and been getting the run around. some of there workers are professorial but several have been down right rude.. I wish I would have paid more money and bought a better stove. Fan is also quite loud.

Good stove. I'm heating my 2200 square foot house with it.
The owners manual could have better advice on maintaning pellet fire on the different settings, ie damper setting relative to pellet heat range setting.
Excellent secondary heater, so far this winter I only used 140 gallons of fuel oil for back-up steam heat! Now I only turn up my house thermostat when I shut down the pellet stove for cleaning. I expect to burn 4 ton of pellets this winter, at $225 a ton, this is wayyyy cheaper than fuel oil!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Emily The Worst product I ever purchased!!
I purchased this stove last year and have had to replace four expensive parts already. The auger constantly jams or feeds the pellets excessively. I have woken up to a house full of smoke on many occasions because the stove frequently does not ventilate properly when shutting down. Overall, this miserable machine worked a small fraction of the season. Do not buy this stove.

This stove is heating a cape cod approx.2200 sq. ft. 9 degrees outside this morning basement is 60 degrees main floor 72-75 degrees upstairs 68 degrees.I have the stove on heat setting 3.I do have the furnace fan running to circulate the air in the house.Use Somerset pellets or Greenway pellets.Will post back with electric savings since the furnace is electric.My last electric bill was $399.04 without the pellet stove and that was keeping the thermostat on 65 degrees.

STove works great. But Instruction manual -noty so good. It is hard to read and confusing.
1. The "Understanding Control Board " is several paragraphs of very estoeric language only The engineer would would fathom.
2. Lighting instructions that there are "2" modes/ 1 for corn CR and 2. Pr for pellets. The unit comes shipped n corn mode--why? explain. If you are usung pellets then should you switch to pr or lrave on corn? All very confusung
3. Just make all your steps in a 1,.,2.,3... priority and explain like a dictionary the terms abreviations and what the buttons will do and not do.
4. Simplify and double space with numbers. All paragraphs may save you a page but is very annoying and confusing .
5. No real person answers or replys to your phone. Bad for business. You need to be user friendly for further business recomendations

Had more problems with this stove. #1 the ignitor went out n not even a yr. we had it. #2 something gone bad with the auger n we have to keep unplugging it n it'll run for 10 mins. until the pellets burn out of the pot. #3 who ever did the control panel I think hooked it up backwards because the settings don't match up to what the stove should be doing. I am not happy n that's a lot of money wasted.
