Replacing Glass in Coal Stove

Replacing Glass in Coal Stove

PostBy: Oil Region On: Thu Aug 03, 2006 10:09 pm

The clear glass on my coal stove broke when the door was slammed too hard. A replacement from Harman will cost $85. Is it possible to purchase replacement glass locally somewhere? If so, what do you call it and where would I look?

Thanks.

I broke the glass in mine last year and I just went to the local glass cutting shop ( auto glass shop ) and they cut me a piece and it works great. I think it is tempered glass but don't quote me on that. The person at the glass shop knows what you need. I think it cost me like $20-$25.

That's encouraging.

I called a local glass place. They said that 'tempered glass' would break into small pieces, but my glass broke in two Large pieces. This gave him the conclusion that my glass was designed for higher temperatures.

Do you recall more specifically what kind of glass you got? Also, what type of stove is yours?

Mine is a sealed system, power vent coal stove. This was another question the glass cutter asked.

I guess they have to order the high temperature glass because it cannot be cut in conventional ways.

Mine is just a basic Harmon Mark II. I also have a coal boiler in the garage but it doesn't have a window.
Like I said I'm not 100% sure it was tempered glass. If I were you I would call the manufacturer and just ask them what kind of glass it is. Then i would go looking at the local glass shops. it has to be cheaper locally.

My glass was a high temp glass i do know that because the guy specifically asked if it was from a coal or wood stove. He did cut it conventionally because I just waited on it and it only took him about 10 minutes.
Just call the place i got mine from. It is called Queen City Glass in Cumberland Md. I'm sure if you give them the demensions they will cut it and send it to you cheaper than the company will.

I ordered my glass from a shop in Vancover Wa.
9 "x 9" cost $42 delivered.
It is ceramic glass and not tempered
Mine is called Neoceram but they also have pyrocrome and other brands.

Do a google search on ceramic glass. It withstands temps of 1200 degrees and more.

My search on ceramic glass turned up that it would be much more expensive that buying direct from Harman. The web site quoted about $120 for the piece of glass I would need. Harman had it for $85. There must be a middle of the road kind of glass that I'm missing. My local (small town) glass dealer didn't know what he or I was talking about, so some accurate terminology here would be helpful.

ceramic glass is what you need and is the ONLY type of glass that will stand up to temps above 400º F. there is no "middle of the road" glass. in fact harman's price is not really that bad, you could perhaps get it for around $70 but that is the cheapest you will find it. do not waste your money on tempered it will shortly break.

Yes it is ceramic glass...and I have to say..Harman's prices for repair parts is not bad...I have gotten some parts from Harman and was surprised how cheap they were...

But do not forget to get the gasket for the glass also...
