Up for sale is a set of 3 - 100k potentiometers (POTS) for Harman
brand coal and pellet stoves. The 100k version is for almost all Harman
Stoves except the model P38, the P38 uses a 50k version which I do carry. Symptoms of a bad POT
on your Harman
stove control board may include erratic control of the blower motor, auger feed, or temperature. These issues are usually the result of a "Dead Spot" in the Potentiometer or a completely failed POT
itself. This is a common problem with Harman
stoves and is usually not covered under warranty after 2 years. Harman
dealers will not replace a bad potentiometer on your control board and will only sell you the complete board which sells for over $200. $ave a bundle and do it yourself!
......If you are a "Do it Yourself" kinda guy like me, this is the perfect fix for that bad POT
on your Harman
Stove. These potentiometers are not overly difficult to replace yourself and requires a little experience with a soldering iron. Simply remove the control board from your stove, remove the bad POT
with the soldering iron, snap the new on the board and re-solder in place. If you are not comfortable doing it yourself, chances are you know someone or there is a local electronics store who can do this for you at the fraction of the cost of buying a complete control board from Harman
. If you have a Harman
stove there is a good chance you will have a failed POT
at some point in time, if you have already had this issue before and ended up paying for the entire control board, now would be a good time to get some spares for the heating season.
This auction is for 3 brand new 100k potentiometers & shafts - exactly the same as what came with your stove, If you are unsure of your POT
resistance, remove the control board from your stove and look at one of your pots. It should have the resistance printed on the front side of the POT
