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.

- Stove/Furnace Make: Hitzer 983 insert
we just started to use our new hitzer 983. We are having trouble keeping the coal burning. Could the outside temp. be the problem? It is going into the 50's in the afternoons. When we first started the fire it stayed lit for about 8 hrs overnight. but since then the fire's have been going out after a few hrs. Any suggestions?
