Harman Mag Combustion Fan

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

Wondering why I could not get the stove over 300 deg, increased feed, still no good. Seems the combustion blower worked it's way back in it's mount just about cutting all air to the grate. Quick fix just bent the tabs a tiny bit on the blower so it fits in the tabs nice and snug. Probably should have a set screw, go figure???
Stay warm, Jimmy

A tip here. The cup shaped fan blades of a squirrel cage can pick up lint and dust in the belly of the cup. If your blades are full of crap it can cut the air delivered by 60% or more.
