We read to squeeze together the feed forks on the our Harman Magnun Stoker as they can spread and not feed enough coal. My husband has had to do this a few times due to our fire doing out. We just aren't sure how close together these can be. Is there a measurement to go by? Thank you
If you have been using wet coal, that is most likely your problem. I just had the same problem this week with my Mag. If the coal is really wet, it will not feed well in the Mag Stoker. Damp coal will feed fine, but wet causes feeding problems. Wet coal will want to stick together and not fall down to the pusher block for the stoker. Try using drier coal and see if the problem goes away.
We have been drying our coal ever since it happened the first time it happened and cleaned out the pusher but the the fork still spread some. I have been using extra ash pans filled with wet/damp coal and placing them on top the stove to dry. Works great and is dry within an hour or so. thanks again
