Vermont castings Medallion CF9080 wiring burst into flames

I paid $1,800.00 for this BBQ 6 years ago at Home Depot and I'm told that Vermont Castings has gone out of business. While BBQing tonite, the plastic insulation coating on two of the wires leading from the burner knob and the ignitor switch burst into flames and melted all of the plastic off the wires, dropping molten plastic onto my composite deck and melting holes in it. First of all, can it be fixed? If not, what do I do now that Vermont Castings is out of business? Is there a parent company that I can deal with? This is not the type of problem I should be having with a BBQ of this price. It's really frightening considering I'm dealing with wires bursting into flames with a natural gas hook-up!

Where can I get a manual for a vermont casting 1982 intrepid 1 non catalytic woodstove?


Since Vermont Castings has gone through 3 different ownerships in the past 10 years, the chances of finding the manual, for your discontinued model are slim and none. Having been a VC dealer up until 5 or 6 years ago, my data base is pretty complete. However, the Model 1982 Intrepid I Non-catalytic Wood Burning Stove doesn't even show up there. If the dealer you purchased you stove from is still in business & is still a VC Dealer, that would be the best place to start. As, his records would go back further than mine. But, I must caution you, many dealer like myself, dropped the Vermont Castings line, during the last part of it's Ownership, by Majestic Fireplace Corp. VC is now owned my Monessen Hearth Hearth Systems.

Hope this helped you some.

Find spare and repair manual for intrepid wood stove


Alex, I don't know how old your Vermont Castings Intrepid wood stove is, but the only available Owner's Manual is for their fairly new model Intrepid II wood stove.

A little quick history. Vermont Castings was an independent company 10 years ago, that was bought up by Majestic (FMC) Fireplace Company of Canada. About 5 years ago, Majestic went belly up and the VC line was purchased by Monesson Hearth Products. There have been some improvements to their wood stoves in the past couple of years, so as to meet the new EPA Requirements. So, this manual may show some things your stove doesn't have.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know. Thanks.

I need the dimensions for a Vermont Casting VM600


As a former VC Grill and fireplace dealer, I though the Model Number you listed looked a little strange. Almost all true Vermont Castings Grills have model numbers that start with VCS. Then I realized that this grill when introduced 3 years ago, was an exclusive (at the time) for Home Depot. It was built for what we called the Big Box Stores, rather than independent dealers like myself. As of right now, Home Depot no longer carries the grill, but there are still a few in the market place. However, there are no Owners Manuals or online literature available in regards to the overall physical size of the grill. I can tell you, that it has 600 sq inches of cooking space.

Hope this helped you. Sorry I couldn't provide more dimensional information.

I want to convert my vm 600bsn grill from natural gas to propane


Because you bought your grill at Lowe's/Home Dept there is no conversion kit available. Conversion kits are available only for the MHSC made Vermont Castings grills sold at authorized dealer locations. If you are interested in a genuine Vermont Castings grill please visit www.ibuybarbecues.com or www.ibuyvermontgrills.com

Flame doesn't flicker


The "flicker" function in my unit operates with a system of rotating, reflective fins. The tiny, AC synchronous motor driving the fins failed and I got one one-line for cheap. A fairly simple R&R.

Only downside is the motor does not always start in the proper direction, but a start/stop or two resolves the issue.
