Warm Morning Information and New Hitzer 82UL

PostBy: Santiago On: Fri Nov 27, 2009 8:03 pm

I have owned and operated my Warm Morning 523 Coal Stove since 1984. I purchased it new on the basis of a friend’s recommendation. It has been a terrific stove and my children always managed to get to the basement to warm themselves after sledding or having a wonderful winter rolling in the snow here in upstate New York. It dried out many a snowsuit!

I finally replaced the round shaker grate a number of years ago, replaced a few shaker handles, and of course, replaced the smoke pipe a few times. It has been trouble free.

Last year, the grate fell and I realized the grate ring had worn through and found that they were unavailable….any place. I had a 1992 catalog from Stoves Unlimited and they listed the past them….it was a 2 piece part…..but even they said I was out of luck.

I am attaching a PDF scan of the original installation guide and directions along with a scan of an original brochure for Warm Morning enthusiasts.

I replaced the stove with a new Hitzer 82 UL that I am starting for the first time. I am having a little problem getting it started, but there is, of course, a new learning curve. There are many more air adjustments on this stove and the directions are limited.

I will take apart the Warm Morning stove and sell the parts that are still good. The castings are like the day I purchased it.

I hope the printed material helps some!

The grate area on the model 82 is very large, I used to put a few inches of coal on the entire grate, then clear an area in the center to start a wood fire. This helped prevent the air from going through the grates and bypassing the coal fire. Also, these stoves really like a good drafting chimney. What do you have for a chimney and stovepipe setup? I know four people with model 82 stoves, all installed with different chimney configurations. The stoves with 7" stovepipe and flue operate the best, the others have 6" and still burn ok, but they are harder to get started in mild weather and aren't as "responsive".

You will really enjoy your Hitzer stove once you get the hang of it.

Yup, cover the grate with coal, and then i just clear a spot for the wood fire in the middle, then after i get the wood fire going, i add coal on top of the wood fire slowly. I love my stove, it holds a fire a long time and very good fire temperature control.
