Hello everyone, It has been years since I have posted on here. Well I just bought a new to me Hitzer 50-93 for 400 bucks. The front grate is sagging a bit and the grate frame is sagging also in the front of the stove. It does still shake, so my question is, Is it ok to use the stove for part of the season until the Christmas season is over? Also, I somehow was able to get the frame out but it was a challenge. It there an easy trick to removing it? Thanks in advance! Seth
Nice price pb. As for the grate, as long as you can shake it down,your fine--as for the frame--both grates lift from the right side & pull back & upward--then frame should be pretty easy to get in & out--I'm thinkin mine was a PIA when I replaced the whole kit & caboodle. BIGGER HAMMER???????????????????
Where did you find your replacement grate frame? My 50-93 refused to shake down last week and upon closer inspection I found that the grate frame in the front is wbar (warped beyond all recognition). Then to add insult to injury I decided it would be smart to try to beat it back to shape with a hammer, so now I'll be replacing the glass and nursing a black and blue finger foe a while. Been looking online for replacement grate frames with no luck. Any help you can provide would be appreciated... Gettin' cold out there.
