    I live in So. California. And I am finishing building a house in the mountains. There is a fellow nearby who has a 1984 Jotul Fireplace Stove 3 (it also says UL 737 NBK) he wants to sell it. On the back it also says RPT 11.01.84 then it says Date of Mfg 0-9-85. Its in good shape and has never been used! He bought it new some 27 years ago but never put a fire in it.
    My questions:
    1. Do you think this old stove would be approved by the building inspector?
    2. The old stove doesn't have a heat shield that the new ones have. Did they make one for it? Do you know where that can be found?
    I don't want to buy something that won't pass inspection.
    Thanks

    What do CA statutes require? Sounds like an awesome find but in WA or OR it wouldn't be approved due to it's pre-EPA status. Check with your local inspecting authority. If they are ok with the stove then go for it assuming this is the right stove for the job.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll see if california posts its EPA requirements, and if JOTUL lists the emissions for the old #3.
