Anyone have a Jotul 507?

PostBy: coalkirk On: Mon Jan 29, 2007 8:51 am

Well the one on Ebay got to $285.00 and did not meet the reserve and ended. I picked up the one I bought Saturday and hooked it up Sunday in my shop. That is a really nice little stove. I got it fired up around 4:00 and it got up to about 600 degrees pretty quick. (Stove temp, not flue temp) I need to get a draft guage to make sure I've got it set right but after I turned back the air so that my flue temp was about 200 and the stove temp was about 450. I just checked it at 7:00 am and its still going great. The coal on top wasn't even burned yet. This is my first experience with a hand fiired stove. I love the way the coal crackles when you add it.

Bought this baby for $350.00. I just moved it out of the lady's basement last night and boy was it tough getting up over the bulkhead. Unfortunately I chiped a little enamel off the back side of the stove, maybe about the size of a match head. I think she'll be alright though. My father burned one of these (a green one) in the Northeast Kingdom of VT when I was a kid and I remember the 900 square foot room being maybe 90 degrees while it was minus 30 outside.... Unfortunately he forgot to close the ash door after starting the coal and overfired the stove.... He sold it in non-working condition back in the early 90's. He's wanted another ever since. Found this one last week and I'm going to install it up in VT for him next month...

Anyone know what one of these things goes for retail, or when they stopped making them? Any information about them would be great! Thanks.

I have a Jotul 507 that I have used intermittently for many years. It puts out alot of heat. I use the "normal" sized coal which I believe is often referred to as nut. I like the stove. In fact; I have decided to burn it again, more, this year. I need to get her up to speed or find a duplicate stove for parts. She needs some new parts! I have worn her out inside! :) So if anyone knows where I can get the parts please email me?

Melody, Luckily mine was in good shape and didn't need any repalcement parts, but there is a site and i thinks it's callled stovepartsplus or something like that. They have all of the firebrick, grates etc. They are not cheap though. just google jotul 507 parts.

I have tried searches on the net for the parts. Mine was in good shape when I got it too but I burned it off and on for years.. Now it is time to replace a few innards I think. :) They are a little worn. Love the stove though and would take another like it in a heartbeat! Don't seem to be many of them around though!

Thanks for the tip!

Thanks. I found it too! :) Looks like they have all I need. I even found the "manual" with all the diagrams and part #'s in it finally. Looked everywhere. It was inside the stove. Have not burned it in the last few years as I had no time even for that to speak of. Now; this Winter, I have to make time with fuel prices such as they are.... But; then coal prices will probably soar with everything else.

Later! Thanks again!

Jotul 507
I bought my 507B mine in 1984. I have moved several times and have not let go of this great stove. It has sadly been sitting in my basement waiting for the moment I would regain my sanity and start using it. I bought a Harmon Mk2 that I plan to use for the bulk of my heating this year, and since I am limited in number of flues, it won't be until early next year before I can get a chimney up for the Jotul. When I did burn it I used mostly nut, some pea early and late in the season It never occured to me to mix the two (a youthful lapse). This forum wasn't even an itch in someones pants so most of what I know about burning it was trial and error an it was very trying with a lot of errors. Once you have conquered the steep learning curve life will be good, very good.
Your 507 looks to be in pristine condition on the outside you can find parts for it, but as was mentioned they are steep. Like most things with coal, it will take some getting used too. The air adjustment on the top door will take time to maximise it's effectiveness, that I remember. Keep a log I might need a refesher course when I get mine up and running.

I would love to have a red one myself! :) I have a green one. I will tell you; after pricing new stoves, I think the prices on the parts are way cheaper than getting a new stove especially since I "know" this little stove! Like I said, would never pass one up for a reasonable price. I purchased this one used years ago. I think I paid $150...maybge only $100. Anyone researched coal prices for this year? I have not looked yet. :) But; when my oil company wants $5.09/gal on contract for this year...well...

Melody,

It's really odd we were just talking about this great little stove and agreed we would both like to buy another...one came up on the forum for sale thread today and I bought it. it's another grren one like I have now. I was hoping for a red one but oh well. I'm selling my Harman.

I don't know what the BTU rating is of these stoves. I think I read somewhere that they were advertised to heat about 900 sq. ft. They are real nice little stoves. They have a very deep bed of coal and they really kick out the heat. Temps are supposed to be in the 40's here for the next several nights. I might fire up mine tomorrow night.

It worked well. I got about a 24 hour burn out of it with the air inlet spin cap set on 1. Stove was about 325 degrees which was all that was needed that night. I'll try running it alittle hotter once it gets cold. The whole idea is to see how long i can get by just using this stove. Once i fire up the boiler, I won't need to burn this stove. :( Luckily I have antoher just like it in my shop :D so I can still use a "manly" stove as they say.
