You would have seen the grate inside and the motors along with wires in a door on the stove side if this was a kast counsel

Everything was taken apart and out of the stove to move it but it seems that all of the parts were there. There was no silver plate on it that I could find but it looks like what is in the manual.

If all the parts are there and it looks like the manual then its a 85000 BTU paddle feed

What are they asking?

I found a couple stoves on CL that look promising but I am not clear on if you need a rear vent or top vent
