Comment:
Replaced combustor 3 times.<br />All firebrick replaced already and needs replacing again.<br />Top replaced once due to cracking.<br />Rear guard that holds rear firebrick over combustor has 2 of the 3 bolts that hold it in place busted off.<br />Rear bypass damper has been replaced and the entire unit needs replacing again. <br />They say don't spare any expense when purchasing a wood stove or wood pellet stove so my wife and I didn't. We bought the Lopi Leyden, what a waste of money. I think ive been hoodwinked.

Comment:
The old stove I replaced heated faster than this new Lopi Endeavor. It would get water boiling on the stove top in about 30 minutes. The Lopi Endeavor seems to take forever to get up to heating temperature. I'm using the same firewood I used with the old stove.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
