Old Majestic kitchen coal stove

Old Majestic kitchen coal stove

PostBy: ludlowjack On: Tue Jul 15, 2008 1:13 pm

I have an old Majestic stove that needs at least one grate and new firebrick. Best site I have found is "woodmanspartsplus" , but they don't have one. Does anyone know any other sources for this?? It's a good stove that we've used for almost 20 years and I would like to keep it ( although I know it's not all that efficient.
Also, I have a Gibraltar SLR (?) that is about 15 years old. I simply cannot prevent the rear firebrick from breaking after a short period of use. My first thought is that this has been due to too hot burning, but I follow the instructions and it still happens! Any ideas?

When the rear firebrick break, do they just crack and stay in place?? or do they break and fall into the fire, leaving the steel exposed to the fire? If the brick just cracks and stays in place, don't worry about it. the crack will not allow the fire to get to the steel, just like the gaps or divisions between the bricks, there is no harm or danger unless you have the hot coal fire right up against the steel box.

The cracks could be because of a movement or pressure created by the shaker grates, have you checked this to see if it is hitting the bricks?

Hope this helps.
