    Hi, I have just moved into a property in the UK with an intrepid I stove. I was lead to believe this is a wood burner but on cleaning out the fire, I have recovered some anthracite debris alongside chimney debris++.

    Q1 how can I tell if this is a multi fuel stove?
    Q2 has anyone any operating instructions they can email to me? The one I can find on this forum stops at page 8 and the operating instructions start on page 10!
    Q3 does anyone know where I can obtain replacement gaskets?

    Thanks

    Hi Stellaroxy1

    Q1 usually the grate is different and can be shaken for ash.

    Q2 i have a set of instructions for vermont castings early stove and it includes the intrepid. it is in two sections page 1 thru 8 and 9 thru 15. throw me you email address and i'll send them over.

    Q3 i'm not sure about the uk but here in the us just a trip to the stove shop or hardware store.

    The unfortunate thing is the manual that i send you does not have a picture of the coal grate. maybe someone here can send a picture to you or post it. if there is no grate in it it is for wood.

    and welcome to the forum

    Many thanks

    ameliabonner@hotmail.com for the info. There is a grate in the stove so I'm assuming it's a multi fuel.

    All Intrepid stoves have a grate! If it is fixed - flat with slots in it, it's wood. If they are shaker grates, it's multi-fuel.

    Excellent-it's a movable/shaker grate.
    Many thanks
