    Do you know where I can find a diagram showing the interior design of this stove. I've found out just about everything other than the manual and how the stoves design actually works. It looks like a pretty generic design with a lot of similarities to a lot of stoves. That often means that it works well enough to have multiple copies/versions of it. I'm assuming that this stove is now a Century High Efficiency EPA Stove model S244E. It looks like a nice little stove with a good fireview window. I only need it to heat about a thousand square feet. Specs: 74.5% e rating, 18" logs, 26100 BTU/hr, up to 1000sq ft. Haugh's model S244E. Would anyone be willing to share info about this stove. Seems like a good little heater.

    I had two of them.
    The best litttle stove you can get for the money, in my mind.
    I was totally impressed with the "fireshow" & efficiency.

    If you need more info., I believe you can go to the Vermont Castings Website.
    The model number is still valid, but I believe it is now a "Dutchwest" product.

    "That was the feeling I got from the research. I went on the VC site and got some specs but could not acces the manuals or brochure. This seems to happen with a lot of manuals I try to access from VC. Are you sure it's a Dutchwest now? I found it with the same model #S244E as a Century product. Can you describe how the secondary burn works on it? Thanks for the reply."

    Haughs was bought by Century (CFM) and then Century was bought by Vermont Castings and relabeled as DutchWest.

    " How long did a full load burn? Did you have a total of 4 firebricks for a baffle (double layer on each side) or two (single layer)?"

    My stove of this model has two threaded bolts that will seem to clamp down on the air control slide. Does anyone know what purpose thes bolts serve? I don't see these bolt in any of the pdf manuals.

    I have been looking through several of the S244 threads to see if anyone has said anything about parts for this stove, but I didn't see anything. My front glass was recently shattered by a crowbar (don't ask, lol), and I need to purchase a new one. The dealers off of Century's webpage want $165.00 for the glass and I have found it as cheap as $123, but that's about 1/3 of what I paid for the stove brand new - seems like a ripoff to me. Anyone know of a reliable and fairly priced parts outlet for this unit? Thanks a bunch!

    Check with local glass shops. What you are looking for is "Pyroceram" or "Neoceram" ceramic glass. But the $123 is in the ball park of what you are gonna be paying for it.

    Thanks for the response. The stove is a good little unit that I enjoy using to heat my 24x32 garage even if my buddies laugh at my puny little stove:)

    You could also try www.onedayglass.com. Be sure to measure carefully including its thickness. Pyroceram is 1/8", Neoceram is 3/16" thick.

    That's what I'm talking about. I don't have the exact measurements, but an approximation puts the price @$83. Thanks for the info!!
