I found this stove on Pgh Craigslist when looking for a Warm Morning 414A for parts. It looked like it was in great shape, and looks a lot like the WM so I scooped it up for $100. It looks like it was hardly ever used. 1 cracked firebrick but every thing else looks great. Ash pan and shaker handle were included. The enamel on the body is pretty good, with some paint spatters and minor dings. Should clean up nicely.
I’m pretty pleased with my find. Did I get a decent deal? I will have some questions for the experts later, just sharing my find for now.

Real nice Butchy65, I think tall and narrow are the best fire pots. The only difference between a fire brick with a crack within it's dimension and the crack between 2 bricks...one is straight ;)

Finally got my Sears stove fired up, and after a couple of nice burns with wood to make sure everything worked well I've got my first coal fire going today. Trying to figure out how to get pictures on the thread but I'm technically challenged 🤔

I think the hardest thing for me to learn is to just leave it alone and let it burn. Seems to work best that way. I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it. It sure throws of a real nice even heat though. Not the super hot heat like wood. Much more comfortable.

I know it's hard not to fidget with it, you are right though it does it's best work when left alone. Heat output with coal is much more steady. :)

I read many different threads on here and watched lots of videos to make sure I was ready to burn coal. This site was so helpful. The stove is in great shape and I’m hoping to use it for many years to come 😉

Getting the hang of burning coal. A little air though the top really helped get a full burn.

Well worth that $100, it's a sweet looking stove!
Fill it up and bank the coal up towards the back, you'll get a nice long burn out of it. Like Fred says adjust the underfire air to control the burn.
