EFM Model A700

PostBy: NewCoalUser13 On: Wed Jul 10, 2013 9:36 pm

Just bought a home in Schuylkill County with an EFM Model A700 Stoker-Boiler. I need to know how to get this fired up. I have rice coal ready for it but no instructions on how to get it lit. Also need to know which valves need to be on or off for the hot water now as well as for the heat for the winter. Unfortunately, the previous owners died and the executor can't help me. Anyone have a copy of a manual for this or a link or any experience? I will also need some names of possible recommended service professionals in the area. Any help for a coal newbie would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks you for all of the responses on the forum. Had Matthew DiRenzo over to service the A700 today, got some coal from DiRenzo Coal and will be able to enjoy a hot shower tonight! The unit is actually a very interesting piece of equipment. Now just have to wait 4 months to see how it heats the house.

Welcome to the Forum & congrats on your EFM.... a beauty of a machine. If not the best, it's certainly near the top of the list. (There's a list?) :)

Thanks for the reference Rob, I owe you a :beer: . I was able to get over yesterday and sevice it. Over all it is in really nice shape...needed a good cleaning and the coal pipe and collar was rotted. Replaced it and it is up and runing fine. The home owner will be very happy with this unit in the winter :D
