We purchased Keystoker KA-6 about 3 years ago. This furnace has kept us warm and cozy since. This week I had a minor issue with the electric controls and called Keystoker, They walked me through what might be wrong found the problem and fixed it. This is why I bought a Keystoker, quality products and something unheard of today service after the sale. I fully recommend the purchase of the products from Keystoker. You won't be disappointed.

Welcome to the Forum Dave!! A three year user....what took ya so long to check in with us?!?!?!?! :D

Nice to hear a good report, too many times only the bad experiences get noted and that skews the view a bit.

Standard intro safety question.....Do you have the required CO monitors in place?? :)

I am always safety conscious, I have one on each floor and one in each bedroom. A bit excessive but I feel better having them with the coal furnace

The upstairs zone was getting warmer and warmer. The thermostat was set below all limits. It was like the safety device was activated even though I lowered the temp 20 degrees below the upper limit. That zone kept heating. I looked on forums and finally called The great people at Keystoker. They helped me find that the triple aquastat was the issue. I put in a new one and it works fine now. Thing is, I saw on one of the forums that this aquastat is supposed to have a manual and automatic switch which I cannot find. It said that it would reset to the manual mode if the power went out. It did go out the other day.

I agree with Dave 100 percent. More companies should provide the products and services the way Keystoker [and other coal equipment suppliers] do and it would be a better Country. Keystoker truly does care about what they do. Mike
