Gibraltar CFS Parts

I'm looking for a replacement door glass for a Gibraltar model CFS stove. Last year I found a place for parts on the net and ordered a coal retainer and a rear firebrick retainer but didn't save the webiste. Anyone know of a source for parts for these stoves?

Is the glass rectangular? If so you could have a local glass guy cut it to your specified size. I got new glass cut for my stove this year. I just had to tell them it was a coal stove and gave them the exact dimensions and thickness. They told me I needed, Neo-Ceram (Pyrex) and told me what it would cost. It was right around $100. I don't know what those other sites will charge but the glass I got works and looks great. Just another option if you have a glass guy near you or one that will ship to you.

This is what most stove companies are using a ceramic base glass

Thanks for the sites. I'll check them out.
The door glass is arched on the top so not an easy square cut like a rectangle would be but I do have a local glass guy that I have dealt with before for some other glass. If the web sites fail to provide results I'll give him a try.
By the way, I'm right down in Northampton County, PA.
Thanks again.

Hi sharkman 8810 They are very good stove I bought mine a little more then a year ago i am very happy with I have the Mcc model big one weight is 600lbs holds 100lbs of nut parts are not cheap
but real there is nothing that you would have to replace besides Glass and door gaskets every year or two They are build
very well the grates on mine are very heavy 15lbs each I have five in it They throw the heat they made about 6 stove
models and one stoker stove models and two fireplace inserts the CFS weight is 485lbs holds 85lbs or so of coal with the banking bar installed 55k is a off a little in all depends on how good the coal is good antracite will burn at 13.000 to 13.800 BTU's Per lb so if you do the math you will get a higher amount of btu's I would say that the CFS with a good Qaulity Anthracite will put out 85k to 95k or more They made them with double wall with blowers and single wall with out blowers The bouble wall ones with the blower would be the one to get it will throw more heat out in the area you want to heat and will help keep the stove running cooler I would put these stove up against any stove company on todays market and I had afew others over the years and buy far this is the best I ever had with good coal and a good draft and evrything set up correctly you will get very long burn times out of them and lots of heat so check and see if is the double wall model and if the blower is on it I would buy it now you will see them on e bay for a lower price but they will be used as long as you can look at them I would say buy one of them if it is in good shape But being this one is a new one go get it you won't go wrong If you need any more info let me know good luck on getting it :) Here is some more info on the Gibraltar stove

Thank you for the reply and the link. I think it is the cfs, as it doesn't have any fan, and is just a plain radiant freestanding type stove. Size wise it didnt seem very large to me (like the hitzer 50-93). The one at the dealer is used, i think there was some dealing going on. I wont be getting a stove till sept. probably because of seeing how the finances go with jobs and daycare etc. and available funds, but learning what brands are good will help because some dealers deal in used too, and for my situation, that isn't a bad thing.

i have owned a cfs since around 1991. bought it new from stoves and stuff. had to leave the first one at the old house when we sold it and got another straight away off craigs list. they are i think the best coal stove out there. manual says to burn nut coal in it only [corprate bs]. grates and stuff are out there. havent had the manual for 10 years but i think it's an 80,000 btu stove. cfm [my brother-in-law had] was 100,000 btu. if you break one of these stoves you have had to put a good deal of effort into it. if you want a coal stove get a gibraltar they're hands down better than anything built today, i've been told the co was closed when the partnership that started it went south. i have the cfs in the basement and a hearthstone mansfield wood stove [we have 18 acre of woods] in the living room heating an old stone farm house [3600 sq ft and drafty].
left the air a little to open one day when i left for work [old house 4 am] when my wife got up at 6:30 the glass top on the dining table was to hot to touch and her favorite bees wax candles had wilted. manual says max temp is 500 degrees i burn the current one at 600 often and it's doing fine. have lehigh coal in it this year half the ash of the coal i got locally last year.

I have the Gibraltar LCC, the monster of the Gibraltar line. I enjoy the ability to burn wood in the early fall and then late spring when a coal would be way too hot. I enjoy burning coal a lot more than wood. I typically get a 12 hour burn with no problems, a very cold day and wind, I am down to every 8 hours.

As you stated, you would really have to work hard to destroy this stove.

I am planning to replace both glass sides and all the gaskets. I'll take pictre of the the mini project.
