Can I remove the electric blower on an old Nashua stove?

    We have an old Nashua wood stove with an electric blower on the back and connections for ductwork on the sides. We'd like to give the stove to friends who live off-grid.

    Can we remove and discard the blower? Will it be safe to operate without the blower -- or is it possible that the stove will overheat and the steel will warp?

    It would be hard to warp a Nashua. Maybe not impossible, but hard. They are tough stoves. If they use some judgement and don't let it get glowing red it should be ok.
