KA-6 Stoker Assembly

KA-6 Stoker Assembly

PostBy: 218Bee On: Sun Jul 13, 2008 11:10 am

Hey all,

My stoker has a pair of machine screws and bolts at the end of the fire self. See the pic.

These are loose.

Am I correct in assuming they should be tightened? My wife says I've got a screw loose :roll:

Thanks

Yes those screws should be snugged down but not super tight . However if they have come loose you probly need to shut it down and take tyhe grates out and reseal them with furnace cement as with the screws being loose the old cement has probably fallen out.

Thanks, jpen.

This is a new unit, never been fired, fresh from the factory. I have seen any cement or debris coming out of the stoker.
Are they cemented from the factory? The grates are snug in the assembly.

the loose screws that you are talking should be tightened,probably over looked at factory.the grates do have cement on them but only on the back near the stoker unit, don't put cement on entire grate and cover the air holes in grate.cement at the rear of air holes to front of stoker unit,cemet at that joint is to prevent back firing burning into hopper.

Thanks, stokin.

I tightened them down, but didn't disassemble the unit.

The grates are secured tight to the stoker body, it didn't take but a turn to tighten them.

Thanks for the help.
