Trouble finding service

PostBy: furguss1961 On: Tue Sep 27, 2011 8:19 am

I have an e-f-m coal stoker furnace and am searching for a service and repair person. The unit is probably 75 years old and I cannot locate a model number. The gentleman who always cleaned and serviced for me passed away and I've tried every listing on the e-f-m website. Seems no one in NEPA works on them any more. Any ideas? I do need parts replaced before the unit can be fired up for winter. Thanks for any suggestions!

It might help if you listed your hometown or general location narrowed down a bit from NEPA.

I'm sure some others will be along with their recommendations.


And welcome to the forum.

I'm north of Scranton (Clarks Summit). The closest authorized business I've found is Bloomsburg. Thanks again...
