The model 202 I think was the single spinner model with a refractory firebox. I have the original owners manual for the 404 and a brochure for the 202.

Rich -

Thanks for the info - I have the late model 404 as well. Does your manual say to remove the firepot when burning wood? I have no firepot with mine and no fire brick or ash pan on the bottom of the stove. Can you tell me what is needed, if anything, to burn wood and not damage the stove.

Thanks,
Marcus

Marcus, there is no firebrick in the 404 and you can burn wood with or without the firepot, I would recommend that you have an ash pan fabricated because it would be difficult to empty the ashes without one. Also without the firepot you can't burn coal.
