Hello-

I am a coal newbie and first want to thank everyone for their contribution. I have learned a lot by reading here. I am going to look at a used Leisure Line stove to buy, but the owner does not know if it is a Hyfire I or Hyfire II. I have not been able to find any pictures, owners manuals, etc online- is there a way to tell by looking at the stove ? Thanks.

I believe the II has two burners as opposed to one but someone will confirm .

Welcome to the forum, the Hyfire II has two equal size burners, the Hyfire I has a smaller one and a larger one. Best of luck with your purchase!

If you need information you can ask your local Leisure Line dealer or give the factory store a call: http://www.leisurelinestoves.com/698401.html

Hyfire I or II have 2 burners, but the Hyfire one as a 40K and a 90K (small and big one). The Hyfire II has 2 larger 90K burners.
They also have 2 blowers, 2 Stokers, and 2 Convection blowers.
Either one would be a good choice. Most just have Rheostat controls for feed and blowers, but upgrading to a CoalTrol is very easy and well worth it! Good luck!

Thank you Richard S, Matthaus and WNY- With your help of proper identification, I purchased a used Hyfire II today. It appears to be in good shape with just a small amount of surface rust, no pitting in the firebox area, has a coal trol already installed, all blowers and auger turn on, move and blow air! The two augers just slide back and forth a little intermittently. Is that all they're supposed to do? I thought maybe they would lift up or something to drop the coal down - but- I have no clue what I'm supposed to be looking for! Thanks again for all your help. I am really looking forward to my family being warm this winter in Central New York with out owing a 2nd mortgage to the propane company!

I can't seem to find an owners manual online. The previous owner did not have one, either. Is there any maintenance, like oiling the augers, etc. I should be doing? Sorry to be so long winded.

Yes, the STOKER motors only work on a cycle, (on 30 seconds/off 1 minute, etc..) This is based on FR (Feed Rate) in the CoalTrol and temperature settings.

The stocker plates only go back and forth, they do not LIFT, it just gently lays the coal on the burn plate as it goes back and forth and pushes the ashes foward.

The Combustion blowers that are under the burn plates will blow all the time and the Convection blowers will vary in speed based on feed rate and temp.

Anything else, just ask.

They are not that hard to figure out, once you get the hang of it.

Starting the fire sometimes can be frustrating, get yourself the Coal Mice or Coal Starter Bags, it goes Much easier and lights much faster. It will burn hot for a little while until you get some ash at the front of the plate, so don't panic if it get really hot at first...... (Been there!).... :)

Thanks Dave, I will. Now to go coal shopping this week. I imagine I can get the starters you mentioned from the coal supplier? Anyway, I will track them down.
Do you keep any spare parts for your Hyfire on hand in case of failure? Like a blower or stoker motor, etc?

you should be able to get the starter bags at the coal dealer or coal stove shop. Charcoal or Cowboy coal? can be used also.

Yes, I have a stoker motor/gearbox and I think a blower as a backup. But mine is an older unit (5-8 years old).

Jerry from Leisure Line can supply any part you need and can ship it out quite fast. They have good customer service.
