Just came across a Stratford SC100 Coal Stove with no manual. Any help would be appreciated. Does anyone have a manual tht I could get a copy of? What type and of coal is to be used? Any other suggestions?

I will be doing a lot of reading!

Thanks,
John

Welcome to the forum!! Did you do a Google search for the stove make and maker?? Sometimes they have a manual online.

If you can post a photo of the stove, and firebox, I'm sure someone can help with any questions.

Yes I have searched all over. My guess is that this stove might have been imported. Does anyone have any leads?

Thanks,

Look Here!

One of our members, Kobra44, also own's your stove.

Lets put out an APB or PM him or something. Maybe HE has a copy and can help!

Woo Hoo!

I think this is it!



If that's not you....Your stove was definitely made by Aarrow

But your model may be obsolete.

I have the same stove. Mine is officially a SC1090 built in 1988 but only a few changes to the shaker and fuel bar were done to make it a SC100. Dussingers Stove Shop in Lancaster has parts and a lot of info.
They told the story of Aarrow Inc. importing a ship load of anthracite to England to design the stove. Dussingers claims it's one of the best coal stoves ever built.

I also don't have the manual and the new stratford stoves are a quite a bit different with air wash and a whole different grate system. I'm having problems getting mine to draft enough to keep the coal going but it has worked great as a wood stove!

Thanks! - I found the same. I even sent them an email. But no reply. That manual is not my stove.

You can burn any size you want, most hand fired stoves will work with pea coal too which is alittle smaller than nut. I've even use buck in a Franco Belge but that has very small grates.

Anything smaller than chestunut falls through the grates on our stratford stoves that JADFPE and I have....
