    How do I know what model All Nighter I have. It says Moe on the lower left of the front door of it. It has the two vents on top where it slopes up, one 6 inch exhaust tube in the back, and a little round hole on the lower right side.

    It has a nice handle with a wooden grip.

    What model do I have?

    Also, are they UL Approved/Listed? A Wood stove guy was here to give me an estimate on a new liner for my chimney and he said that was a very inefficient heater, not UL listed and we should get rid of it. He said he won't hook it up.

    Any help of evidence of the contrary would be very helpful.

    Thank you everyone!

    Thank you kindly! So, the local stove guy was wrong (or trying to get me to buy a stove) saying these are bad stoves and not UL Listed.

    Just curious, I know the company isn't around anymore, but did anyone take over making any of the parts that fit it? I mean, can you still get the blower, water jacket thing, or any of the other parts?

    Thank you again!

    Here Is a link to a replacement blower I found when I did a google search.
    http://hartford.backpage.com/Househ...wood-stove-usa-made-by-daytongrainger/4441842

    Not sure If you got your answer on the model from the link posted above. If the small hole that feeds the 2 blower vents Is on the right side down low and toward the front It sounds like you have a Mid moe. I have 2 All Nighter's, and love how they burn. One Is a Giant moe In my home, the other Is my stove In a friends house. My friend uses the Mid moe. His house has Very poor Insulation, and the Mid Moe Is the ticket for him as he was tired of pumping propane heat straight through the walls.

    I can make the wood handle If someone needed one.

    Does anyone have any idea the cost to rebrick the inside of the Mid or Mighty Moe All Nighters?

    Thanks!

    Seems like I paid a couple dollars each for fire brick at Tracter Supply, maybe less as It's been a while since I bought any. I don't know how many bricks are In a Mid Moe without my buddy letting his go out and cleaning all the ashes out. We replaced a couple of broken Bricks In It before we Installed It. I would guess there are probably around 15 to 20 bricks, so It should'nt be to expensive. Especially If you can Install them yourself. We cut the bricks that needed shortened with a masonary blade on a circular saw.


    I have a tiny moe that sits In my barn that will some day go In our sun room, I can't wait to get this little guy going. It still has all the original parts, wood handle, door baffle, smoke flap, and blower. I have a blower on my Giant Moe also, and It moves the hot air around Very good. My stove Is Installed In an addition to my house, so the blower helps push the heat out Into the rest of the house.

    I envy you guys with the all nighters. I grew up with one and wish I could find one for my house now. Efficiency doesn't concern me much as I love to CSS wood and I just like the way the old stoves look. I have ended up with a Vermont Castings Vigilant to install for next year.

    Here's a couple pictures of mine plugging along. It heats my entire house quite well.

    The blower linked a couple posts up will work, but it's expensive. You can get the same style blower on Grainger or Northern tool much cheaper.

    Bob D,
    That Guy is Full of it. My father had a Big Moe All Nighter and that thing heated our whole house which was a split foyer, it was very efficient. We would load it up right before we went to bed and it would last all night. We even cooked on it when we lost electricity during winter storms. They were UL Listed as our homeowners insurance company required it and then they sent an inspector out to make sure it was installed properly. I remember my father talking about this. Any Blower motor should work as long as the attachment hose(metal) fits into the lower port hole. Here is a youtube video on the All Nighter it is a Bad Dude as far as stoves.

    Answered a long time ago Rich.
  17. I sold All Nighter Wood stove when they first became available back in 1976, and they were the first company to receive a UL listing and that is why we sold lots of them. I own a Little Moe flat top box stove that has developed some rather annoying characteristics. After 37 years of hard use the top has a crack in it, too small to see with the naked eye but the hammer test reveals all. The cast door is just like the day I sold it to my Father in law. Does any one need a parts stove?

    I am looking to find out exactly what the material on the floor of the All Nighter, below the fire brick is and what has been used to replace it would be? I am in the process of re-lining my mid-Moe. Thanks for reading.
  19. Can't really say for sure. I sold them but I never built one. I did work at The Quaker stove company in Hilltown Pa and they placed the fire brick directly on the plate steel. I would venture a guess probably asbestos related, be careful very dangerous stuff the fibers. Denny Z.

    Sure appreciate the offer. Some day down the road I will get to install a wood stove and I will hop it's name is Moe. The Vigilant I purchased didn't work out for this year. Still heating with pellet stove for the time being.
