    anyone know what this is? i'm somewhat interested in buying it, but it needs a blower. he says it has 2 and 1 is bad. the only thing is he says no tags or model number on it. he has no clue what it is.looks similat to vermont winter warm, but i dont think it is. any feedback appreciated - mike

    Old VC large insert, model 0044 or 0046, predecessor to the WinterWarm Large?

    thank you begreen, i'll look around and see what i can find. you would'nt happen to know if parts are still available for it would you?

    actually i looked it up, and i believe you are correct. i found this - after paging down, i see the part numbers for left and right blower - no longer available. any ideas where one of these blowers can be had? also does anyone have any experiance with these stoves? is so...your opinion?

    I had one of those while I was buying my three stoves on CL. I even copied the whole manual and posted it online somewhere here I think. I recall a guy that swore by the 044/046 fireplace insert. The one I had was a little bit of a hassle for me and I liked the Vermont Stove Company thing I am using right now more.

    The special duct that came with mine was kind of a hassle in my tilted smoke shelf.
