The Breckwell P2700 has been around since 1999, the year after the P2000 was introduced. It's a smaller stove than the P 2000, giving out 45,000 btu. along with a burn time of 50 hours on the low setting. Longer if the optional thermostat is used to allow the stove to switch on and off.It's a bay window type stove which does allow a nice view of the burn, but like the P2000, really needs the optional brick fireback and the logset to avoid looking bare.
The P2700 has a large ash pan for a stove of this size, it is recommended to be emptied only after burning a ton of fuel. See comments below.
The control board has some trouble shooting diagnostics which, with the manual, will help to pin down possible problems.

There have been some problems with the A-E-033 convection fan seizing. This is being replaced with the C-E-029 fan. Try to make sure the newer fan is fitted.
It's recommended that the Breckwell P2700 not be run for more than one or two hours at a time on the high heat setting to prevent damage.
Ashes must be brushed or scraped into the ashpan. They don't drop automatically.
Stir the burn pot, wipe the glass.
Empty the burn pot, clean the glass, brush out the combustion chamber and clean the heat exchange tubes.
Annually, or for every ton of fuel.
Empty ashes, clean interior venting, clean the blades of the combustion and convection blowers, clean the vent system, inspect the gaskets, empty and vacuum the hopper.
