First introduced in 2001 as our first multi fuel stove, the 6041 American Harvest stove has evolved into one of the most sophisticated heating appliances on the market. Not only is it capable of burning compressed wood pellets, it can also burn corn, soy beans, cherry pits, olive pits, bio mass fuel grains, and processed pelletized silage with just a few simple adjustments. The American Harvest 6041 is mobile home approved (with use of fresh air kit) and is extremely easy to install. The 6041I is the elegant fireplace insert of our popular 6041 pedestal stove. Pellet heaters work by using a software driven control board to precisely deliver a pre-determined amount of fuel from the hopper into a burn chamber. An electric heating element, used only in startup, heats the pellets until they ignite. The combustion blower forces air through the burn chamber and once ignited, it provides an active combustion of the pellets resulting in very little ash. The exhaust and heat pass through one side of air chambers where on the other side, the variable speed room blower gathers the heat and distributes this through the room. This entire process results in a very clean burning, efficient heating machine for your home.

Questions & Answers
does there need to be any additional access to the back or the side of the unit?
Asked by Tammi October 8, 2020
Hi Tammi! Thank you for your interest in our Multi-Fuel Insert! No, although it would be convenient you do not need constant access to the back or sides of the unit. However, the unit does need to be pulled out and maintained at the end of every burn season!
You said it can burn 18" logs. Does that mean I can alsi burn woid in this insert?
Asked by Elizabeth July 9, 2020
This is a wood pellet burner only, the 18" logs would have been the fake logs we use for decoration.

What size stainless steel liner does it need
Asked by Travis October 24, 2018
This requires 4” Pell vent “PL” piping for a chimney liner.
Will it vent directly up the fireplace flue if used as a fireplace insert?
Asked by Gene September 21, 2018
Yes it will. You must run the 3-4 inch pellet pipe the length of the chimney.
with a 40lb hopper capacity how long will a full hopper last on low setting
So I bought this a couple months ago and immediately we had a loud high pitch whistling when it would blow heat into the room. Well after many calls and messing with the darn thing, we figured it out. We literally has to take a Sawzaw and cut "bridges" between each hole where the heat blows out. It's an air movement problem. Just cut the bridges and it was 95% better! At full blast there is barely a whistle! If you wanted to cut all the holes out, by all means go for it but we just cut till it sounded better. Other than that it's perfect! We love our pellet stove! The reason I am writing this review is to inform because I was spending hours looking up this issue with no answers online so I am really hoping this helps!
I purchased this and installed it October 2014. This thing ran 24/7 (except when off for maintenance) as I did not hook it up to a thermostat. Kept the entire upstairs of our house at 75 degrees (running on automatic at lowest setting) and only burned 2.5 tons for the whole winter. Never had a problem with it unless someone for got to fill it and it ran out (happened twice while I was out of town). The amount of ash in the tray and build up really depends on the brand of pellet - I ran 2 different brands (2 tons of one and 1/2 of another). The 1/2 ton was a brand from Home Depot - it burned ok, but I had more ash in tray, on the inside, and more build up (caking) in the pot. The other brand (New England Wood Pellet) was better (in my experience). For anyone that says that it goes on it's lowest setting, I will say that getting the dampener set right was key - I got mine set that it didn't burn too hot/fast, and not too slow (should be a lot of yellow flame, but not just yellow and roaring). Once this is set, I cut a small block of wood that keeps the dampener exactly where it needs to be. See pictures.
The bad - filling is a bit of a pain. Small opening and you need to push them back. I do not fill using the bag, I keep a metal trash can with the pellets in it and scoop out what I need - not a perfect solution, but it works.

It is not as powerful as our other pellet stove, however it keeps the house warm. My husband thinks that it doesn't have as many BTU's as the other stove. Easy to put in, took a bit to get it dialed in to work correctly.

The stove works well keeps the house at 70 on setting 2 with little or no wind put it a little higher if it is windy. The nice thing it runs all the time no thermostat that shuts it down and then has to play catch up.
