Tennesee Stove Works Stove

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.

Has anybody ever used one of these.Found name tag on bottom of back panel,Tennesee stove works #320. previous homeowner left stove here when he moved.Heated my house with wood for many years,want to try coal.I tried 2 fires now,stove is not air tight enough to burn coal,filled stove to a depth of about 6 to 8 inches,burned for about 5 hours. had stack damper closed all the way and the air inlet at bottom of ash pan closed shut and couldnt keep stove from burning at 600 to 700.Stove looks to me like it was built in the 1950's.Can I get parts for this stove?I'm going to put some gaskets around the doors,I'm sure that will slow down the burn rate considerably and check for other leaks also.Need to find a handle to shake the grates.Any help would be great!

Hello TS, welcome to the forum.

Any chance you can post a photo here of the stove. It may help someone recognize the unit and be able to help
