I bought a house in NE PA which came with a Harman stove. It's a stoker model but does not appear to be a current prduction model from their website. From the plate on the back, the model seems to be ST8-VF8. The "verti-flow" control looks similar to some of the other models on their site.
I have never used a coal stove although my parents used to burn coal in the fireplace. Before seeing this site, I was going to pull the stove out and junk it but I think I will give it a go.
I tried to put in some rice coal and get it going but no luck. Is there a current Harman model that should be pretty similar so that I can follow the same maintenance and start up procedure?
The stove has not been used for a number of years but the blower works and the lights come on the controller. I am not so sure about the pusher (something in there seems to be working but the coal did not push up). There was coal in the hopper when I got it.
Anyway, any advice would be appreciated.
