Is there some trick I'm missing with these push lock washers? Seriously. I've ruined the two Larry gave me. Went to the store, picked up two more and ruined a third. I was only able to get one on with some success. Though, I'm sure its mangled too. I hate these things. My wood burning stove had them on it too and when I removed the door to do some work I never put it back on. I hate them that much. Couldn't I use something besides these things?

IOF,
What are these so called lock washers you speak so highly of???? No seriously are they just standerd loc washers, and where do they go exactly? I am not familiar with the chubbys, but a little more info and maybe I'll have an Idea.
Have a great day, Eric

They are little washers with teeth on them that point up and on an angle. Or rather, down and on an angle. You just kind of push them on the top door pin of each door.

That is pretty much what they look like. Not only have I ruined three of these things but I've already removed all the paint from both the top door pins from both doors. I'm pretty much frustrated with these things.

The little fingers should be pointing towards you if your looking at the end of the shaft. I take a socket that the washers outside edge will fit on and push'em on or take a hammer and drive them on. You can't get them back off without bending them. Just my 2cents

Yeah, I tried a socket, the problem is I'm working with a space a little over an inch so not much fits in there.

How about blocking the socket with the washer up tight and drive the shaft down thru it? Or drill the shaft and put a cotter pin in it.

I eventually got it to work. I did what you said, pushed the washer up tight against the bracket and then used a rubber mallet to pound the door pin back down.

IOF,
just seen crazyforcoal gave you the answer, you just have to use a socket, or bridge them with something so you can push them on. Some cars use them for there door hinge pins, once you do a couple of them though there not to bad. Glad to hear you got it then. By the way your stove is looking Grate, wait that is the coal talking I mean great :)
Have a great day, Eric

Thanks. I am curious though, the coal door doesn't completely seal over the stove body. I thought I had read somewhere this happens sometimes. Is there a fix for it that anyone knows?

IT'S DONE!!!!

I have pics too. But wouldn't you know it. I spent the entire day hanging out with Bob from American after purchasing a couple of bags of coal from him (I'll be placing a larger order in a couple of weeks).

I had every intention to get home yesterday and build a nice fire in the stove but circumstances didn't permit me to do so.

I woke up pretty early this morning, looked outside and wouldn't you know it. Cloudy. I check the weather; yup. Gonna rain. I figured I'd be able to drag the stove outside and get a nice wood fire going to cure the paint. About 15 minutes in. It starts to rain. No biggie, it seemed to be a drizzle. I get a good fire going and the sky opens up.

I extinguish the fire but the stove is still too hot to bring in. I pushed it closer to the house for some protection but...it is still getting wet.

My only hope is that nothing warps from the rain.

Also, I have some pictures of this. But it appears I have smoke coming from underneath the top between the body and the top. Should I be concerned? Or is it just the paint cooking off?

Oh yeah, these stoves hold their heat too. I let the fire burn out 2 hours ago and this thing is still hovering around 350*. I popped the lid and there is nothing but some unburnt wood and ash. I still can't bring the stove in the house.

Oh man! Your day is sounding like my life.
The rain shouldn't hurt the stove any. You will have to repolish because anywhere the polished area got wet it will rust right away. The smoke is probably the polish, paint and new furnace cement all curing. It will take a few fires before it is all cured.

The brass handles didn't look right, so I cleaned up the old ones and painted them black and put the one Larry had on the full view door back on.

I'll bet you have the only red Chubby in existance, but it does look really nice. Good luck learning to use it. I'm coming up on my second year with my Chubby and am still learning. It is very different from my Harman boiler. The Chubby will put out some nice heat though.

Have fun.
