The door is complete now, I'll start a small fire to set the paint this weekend.

I fired up the stove this evening, I didn't have any flue pipe on hand so the stove wouldn't draw with the door closed. I kept it around 200 degrees for the first burn. Tomorrow I'll pick up some pipe and fire it up again. Still need to clean the brass fixtures and install. Click on the pic for the video.
Another burn this afternoon, I picked up some non-wood stove flue pipe just for this test, seems to draw just fine. Click on pic for video.
I'm looking for some help on the firebrick setup on this stove. It has two bricks on the bottom only and I found this information from the manual. I don't know the model number other than 02?. Thanks everyone.
O2-P43 O2 O2 firebrick - takes 2 (ea)
O2-P44 O2 O2 firebrick - takes 4 (ea)
O2-P45 O2 O2 firebrick – takes 2 (ea)
O2-P48 02 O2 firebrick – takes 1 (ea)
PP-868 O2 O2 firebrick – takes 15 (ea)
O2-58 O2 O2 bottom firebrick - takes 4 (ea)
I would make some angle iron to support some bricks on the side walls. On older stoves like this I just play tetris with the firebrick until it all fits, you might need to cut some.
Something like this:
This stove has duel blowers, will fire brick effect their output in a negative way? The maximum log is 20" so I'll measure the fire box and add the brick thickness and see if I'm still at 20".
Doesn't the blower blow out the top?
Yes, the air blows out the top, fans are on each side. I have no reason to believe it's missing any bricks, it doesn't have any tabs on the sides for holding bricks.
Most older stoves do not have side bricks, but if you look at every new stove you will see they have them, it is for keeping the heat in the fire which is especially needed when running a cat stove.
You will have to weld on the angle iron to hold the bricks, I have done this to older stoves and it makes a huge difference.
Ok, start mocking up the interior for the additional bricks. Thank you.
Remember the heat that the blowers blow out the top is created by the cat cruising at 1500 degrees.
Does anyone know where the Thermodisc is located on the Country Flame 02, I don't see one on this stove?
Update; one blower motor doesn't work so I need to source another one
Do you have a manual for it? It should list the location in that. I don't think anyone else has that stove on here.
Yes I have the manual online, it shows the wiring diagram with the parts but doesn't show their location on the stove.
All the inserts I have worked on have it located under the firebox, are you sure it has a snapdisk?
According to the manual it does?
I have seen previous owners bypass the snapdisk and install a manual off on switch, reason I mentioned that.
It has a manual rotary knob also.
Best thing I can say is follow the wires.
I had the old gas burner tube removed from the masonry fireplace Monday. I still need to order a SS liner kit.
Looks like I need a flue collar for the CF stove!
The new cat arrived this week, the cat holder is seriously deformed from heat. I know a steel fab shop that might be able to remove the drilled section and weld in a new piece. I'd like to try and reuse this as I know it fits the stove.
The chimney sweep isn't available until 10DEC, so the install is delayed. I still need to fix the Cat holder. Looks like 6" of snow overnight. We still enjoy this even though the heat gain is minimal.
The cat holder was dropped off at the fab shop today, I'll post the "new" pics when I pick it up.
I picked up the cat holder today, the stand-offs might be a little tall, need to check still. So for $60 I received a new bottom piece and a thicker shield, I'm very happy and it's going to be in the single digits tonight.
