Hand Fed Coal Stove: Glenwood 5000

Post by Mainecoalcouple » Sat. Jan. 27, 2024 9:06 pm

Hi there, new coal users here in Eastern Maine. We have just bought a Glenwood 5000 and are using anthracite coal. Heats wonderfully. We think that the heater is missing a door flap. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you for the reply. We have the damper in the back, was if there was an ash door for the front?

I am not sure about that model, but other stoves of a similar design had a cast iron “smoke flap” that hung in the loading door. It’s function was to reduce smoke spilling into the room.

Why do you think it’s missing something? (any ash door related issues especially a critical part missing) would be immediately obvious as stove would uncontrolled after lighting

That's beautiful!
I know little about the history of heating stove production, admittedly. However one factor is paramount; You could opt for the extreme amount of grandeur and ornate nickel to the upmost extreme with intricate castingings abound.
<<<<<<OR>>>>>>
Opt for a smoothly finished cabinet of sheet steel with venting louvers which contains the rough castings of the inner wokings of engineering precision.
Kinda my observation.

To Rob R, there is an opening for a screw or bolt at the top center of the door framework, and inside are cast divets for a gate to swing on. There are also cast bracings on either side of, and on the door to guide such a flap.
