2003 Harman Magnum Stoker - Can you use with a Power Venter?

This might have been asked a few years back, but there weren't many responses. I have an opportunity to purchase a 2003 Harman Magnum Stoker for cheap, but I don't have a chimney. Can I use this stove with a Power Venter? I don't see why not, but I thought I would get some other opinions.

yes
and you must interlock it electrically with power venter, so if power vent fails the stoker shuts off.

It is terrible to have the power venter fail and the stoker still keep cranking along all the time. :o

Thanks. Do you mean installing a WMO-1 switch to shut down the stoker in the event the power venter fails?
