Parts purchase

Where do you purchase parts for the DF520 stoker? I'm cleaning the stoker and the cast iron baffle is warped. The EFM website states they don't sell direct. The dealer the stoker was purchased from I had issues with. I see alot of the members refurbish these units and wondered were you buy parts. Thanks Matt

Contacting thru the Private Message feature of the Forum might help ! I think of Stokerman on the new parts end of things,and Glen Harris and Scrapper jr. on the used end. Go to the Manufacturer's section of the Board and review the EFM section for some possible other contacts that can help you. Welcome to the Board,and happy searching and reading ! Stop back and let us know how it's working out for you !

Matt,

I think it's common for those baffles to warp noticeably. Even if you buy a new one it could easily do the same thing. Unless it's really bad you might consider just leaving it and saving your $.

Turn it around, in time it will warp the other way. :)

Thanks for all the quick replies. I'm going to try turning it around. Hambden Bob, That was funny!!!! I will have more questions because the fire goes out when it is not cold. Thanks again. matt

Matt, you probably just need to make some simple adjustments. How about starting a new thread and telling us about your system and any issues with it?

We are dealing with two threads here, but in this you say you have the ability...

The df520 manual would be your best resource right now

I read it all the time and learn something new each time.

Not sure if there is a sticky with it or not
If you give it a try n start a coal fire, it will be worth it.
