Looking for A Crane Coal Cooker Manual (Model No. 202)

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.

Hi all,
I am new to this forum so forgive my novice ignorance. I have a Crane model no. 202, and am in desperate need of a user manual so I can get a building permit to install it in my barn. Does anyone have one handy that I could coerce into scanning in, or know where I could maybe find one?

Thanks a ton!

I have a 404 and have had it a long time. I don't recall getting one and it was bought new. I don't burn it much any more but I'm willing to answer questions or post pix.

Here is the manual for the 404. I don't understand why you need a manual for a permit.

Is the Coal Cooker UL approved? If not, refer to the NFPA guidelines for non-UL approved stove installation clearances.
