I had a classic 6048 wood stove from this company and loved it! Ran the thing for about 10 years and had zero problems. Heated a 4,200 square foot home, hot water, and a 40 x 32, 12-foot side wall garage with in floor heat. Recently moved and found a house with a Maxim m255p and thought, very cool. I can use this thing to heat the garage here as well. No wood cutting, just load the thing up. What a surprise I got. This thing is the biggest pile of garbage on the planet! And the bad thing is, it's only 4 years old. I ran it all last winter and never could get the fire star controller to work right. You can't get the thing to stop from going through back burns. The owner's manual is of no help and the air to fuel adjustments are the hardest thing on the planet to adjust. I just replaced the fuel door actuator motor and now it opens when it's not supposed to and the fire star controller is blinking one bar across the whole bottom of the LED panel. Again, nothing in the literature to explain this. And the absolute worst thing is finding a dealer within 100 miles that has any experience with this unit and a useless company to back it up. Been on the phone with them 6 times with zero results and a unit that doesn't work. You get, "You have to go through a registered dealer to get help with our product." What kind of crap service is that? I do not run my business in this manner, why should they?
