I would suggest you ONLY DO THIS when the stove is COLD! Always Use Safety Gloves when touching a Stove.
Some stoves have a "Lift and Swing" latch where you use a handle to slide the door up a short amount then swing it outwards.
Others have a "Slide" latch where you slide a peg or handle across a slot to unlock the doors.
Another version of this can be a 'twist' instead of a slide.

My silent flame wood stove, when I open the door to load it with wood, releases a lot of smoke into the house. We only burn oak.


1# IF THE WOOD STOVE IS INSIDE YOU NEED AN EXHAUST SYSTEM IN THE HOME.
2# IF THE WOOD STOVE IS OUT SIDE AND THE WIN IS BLOWING IN THE DIRECTIOM TO THE HOUSE THEN THE SMOKE WILL COME IN THE HOUSE SO! IS NOT THE TYPE OF WOOD YOU BURN.

I have a McClary Charm A2746 wood stove.I wanted to know what year it is?


Kathy, There should be a certification plate on the stove some where, listing make, model, year of manufacture, etc., open doors/drawers etc. to see if tag is riveted on inside panel or frame. Check the attached links they may help determine the age of your stove, Good luck.

How do I keep the seal in place on the door of the century wood burning stove.


Go to the local hardware, Lowe's or Home Depot and look for a product called "Gasketing Cement and Stove Sealer". Meeco's Red Devil is one manufacturer of the product. It withstands temps up to 2000 degrees. Cut the tip and run a moderate sized bead in the groove of the door or the front of the stove. Place the pre-cut NEW non-asbestos gasket in place and tamp it in lightly with your fingers. Then close the door to mold the gasket to the surface and don't disturb it until the sealant cures....ususally onernight or a full day while you are at work. Do not have a fire in the stove at the time.

I have century wood stove , how do I keep the seal on the door to stay in place. The seal looks to be in good shape, do I need to glue it in, using what product.


You need Gasketing Sealant and Stove Sealer which is a Red Devil product. Good for 2,000 degrees. Don't buy the cheap stuff, read the lable, as some is only good to 550 degrees and will deteriorate rapidly and fall out.

I bought a house with a wood burning stove but I don't know how to operate it


First make sure everything is clean,from the chimney to the stove.insure all metal flues are tight from stove to chimney. Open damper on top of stove(some are in metal pipes). Open your draft vents, usually on clean out door at bottom. Depending on chimney draft you may need to open clean out door to get it started. Load your kindling and get it started. Add bigger wood as it catches. Turn down venting and drafting as the fire roars. Just don't shut draft before vents. You'll get used to balancing draft and vent as you go. I hope this helps

Troubadour wood stove


Look up companies locally that can cut glass for CERAMIC glass only and get a rope gasket from a local stove company along with stove cement. Not the best solution and I can't guarantee it won't break again but that is the type of glass that would be utilized on a wood stove since the manufacturer is no longer in business.
You can also search on the internet for replacement parts for that manufacturer. It would be aftermarket but at least it would be the whole door.
Your other option is to replace the wood stove that takes the same size flue pipe as the Troubadour wood stove you have. Sorry not great answers but when these manufactures go under for a while its like trying to find parts for a studebaker. Sometimes you just have to make do.

How is air supply regulated in wood burning stoves?


To regulate air flow, there are damper devices built into the stove, flue and stove pipes. Keeping the air flowing correctly through a wood-burning stove is essential for safe and efficient operation of the stove. Fresh air needs to enter the wood compartment to provide oxygen fuel for the fire; as the fire burns, the smoke must be allowed to rise through the stove pipes, and exit through the chimney.

Wood burning heater when putting wood into stove lots of smoke comes into the house when door is opened.


It ain't drafting right or you have the damper closed. Look for obstructions in the smoke stack.
Wood burning tips
  • Burn only wood. No garbage, plastics, rubber, paint or oil, briquettes, paper, etc. Burning these items releases harmful chemicals into the air.
  • Burn Wise Program from EPA: Emphasizes the importance of burning the right wood.
  • Build small, hot fires instead of large, smoldering ones.
  • Don't "bed the fire down" for the night. Holding a fire overnight is a fire hazard and can create serious indoor and outdoor air pollution problems.
  • Open your damper if the smoke is dark. Dark smoke indicates more pollution is being produced and fuel is being wasted.
  • Keep your stove clean and well-maintained. Follow manufacturer guidelines; replace catalytic stove filters every 1-4 years. Have your chimney checked and cleaned at least once a year.
Use seasoned wood The best fuel for woodstoves is dry, "seasoned" wood. Seasoned wood has a moisture content of about 20% or less. It tends to be dark in color, cracked on the ends, light in weight and has bark that is easily broken or peeled. Here are some tips for preparing seasoned wood:
  • Split the wood to help it dry. Wood will dry out more quickly and burn best if the wood is cut to about 3 1/2 inches to 6 inches in diameter.
  • Cover the split firewood to protect it from the weather and stack it loosely in alternating layers, at least 6 inches off the ground.
  • Time must be given to allow the wood to reach 20% or less moisture required for seasoned wood. This process takes approximately 6-12 months. Think ahead and buy next winter's wood well in advance.
It is recommended an annual chimney cleaning to remove creosote build up and to identify potential problems. Things to consider:
  • The Chimney cap may be plugged by debris.
  • Catalytic combustor and baffles are exposed to very high heat and deteriorate as used. Replace every 1-4 years depending on use.
  • Stovepipe angles and bolts are subject to corrosion.
  • Gaskets on airtight stove doors need replacement every few years. Gaskets and seals are used by the appliance designer to control the location and flow of air into the appliance.
  • Check seams on stoves sealed with furnace cement. Seams may leak and cause you to loose valuable heat and reduce the efficiency of the unit.
  • Replace broken or missing firebricks.
  • Keep the floor of your stove clean of debris and ash.
