Needing Parts for a Kenmore Coal Stove. 119100120

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.

Brad, if you can show us a couple of photos of the top of your stove we'd have a better chance of finding a solution.

If you're not sure of the size pipe needed to match the oval outlet of the stove, this post gives the circumferences of common stove pipe sizes so you can measure the oval to determine the size you need.

New Stove Question

I never use any special oval to round adapter, I just squeeze the stove pipe to an oval shape and slide it on the oval outlet of the stove. I always use "blue steel stove pipe" for this application because it's a thinner gauge and easier to work with but most hardware stores don't carry it anymore so you might have trouble finding it locally.
If you're planning to use the heavier gauge black stove pipe commonly sold at hardware stores, it will be harder to manipulate to an oval shape to fit the stove, so an adapter would be easier in that case.

Wrap a piece of string around the pipe collar and make a mark where the end of the string meets the rest of the string. Then measure the length of string to the mark.

See which of the numbers that Rockwood posted is closest to that length.

If it's an oddball size, Bryant Stove in Maine can make a tapered pipe section for you.

So many stoves - so few chimneys. I must be coal-stone crazy.
