Glenwood no. 6. base heater, recall

PostBy: wilsons woodstoves On: Mon Feb 10, 2014 12:31 pm

It seems like most everyone is aware of Gleenwood base heater lower end problems, here is a fix for It. The base pans weight is 16 lbs , it is hanging on 4 corners with a 10 or 12 24 screw to the ash pit floor. the ash pit floor weight is 15 lbs. It is in turn bolted in 4 corners to the ash pit(part with bottom door with 2 air intakes). So now you have 4 bolts 1 in each corner holding up the bottom pan and the ash pit floor (part with square cleen out door) If or I feel I should say when any one of those corners crack It becomes stress on the others. Ok here is the fix,ash pit can be fixed in the house(if wife is shoping for the day.bottom pan can get a bandaid the same day.I am now going to post pic as im about to assamble a #6 b.h. in my keeping room. ( to cold in shop and wife is out for the day)ps hope I can pull of the pics. wilson

Thank you for greatly adding to my understanding of the construction of these stoves!

Since I already own one, and am planning to pickup two more at the end of the month, I'm paying careful attention.

Great work - Chris

Emery posted a little while back that he is working with someone to make replacement pans. You should call him.

Very nice patch job Wilson. You could have some interest in that.

VERY NICE and accurate work.

those will no doubt save a number of otherwise complete and usable stoves from an ugly end.

Those pans will never crack! :D Great fabrication work! I think they will be flying off the shelves when you start production.

That new bottom pan would solve half my problem Wilson. Still need to get a replacement for the upper half. I'm afraid mine is too far gone.

Dennis I just found some peices (in the snow) of that ash pit floor I will post a repair on one I am working on, and plan on assembling soon. There may be some chunks there that will work for you ,I have quite a pit.

Keep me posted Wilson. Last night the power went out as I was reading your post. 6 hours with no electricity. No problem here with the Glenwood but the 8 houses I look after all have oil heat. No electricity = no heat. Just got back from checking them all. No damage!
