Owners Manual

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

So I'm new and and I'll apologize up front if I'm asking this question in the wrong place, Sorry :D

We have recently aquired a used Efel Montana Coal Stove and I'm trying to find out where I can get an Owners Manual for the thing. Any ideas??

Thanks So Much!!

Well, I put "Efel Montana Coal Stove owner's manual" into Google, and it pointed me back to this thread. Says a lot about Google since the thread is so new, but it doesn't help you much.

Chasex2 - I have a booklet that came with my Efel Arden Wood/Coal stove from back in the 1980s. The booklet is for the Efel Arden, the Efel Montana and the Efel Sherwood. It says that it contains assembly, installation, operating and maintenance instructions. There is nothing in it that is not discussed somewhere on this forum. Is this what you are looking for? Joe
