This stove has several long term flaws. 1. the by-pass damper is made of steel and the part supporting it. It warps makin the damper not as efficient and more difficult to open and close. 2. the door was solid brass so with opening and closing after years of use the handle gets a little sloppy. It wears the brass. It should have had a steel insert built into the door. If someone has one and they are having problems the door could be drilled and insert a bushing. I would take mine to a machine shop to do this. I had one in my house and it was a good stove. It was more efficent, it could be installed in mobil homes and had reduced clearances. The honey bear blower would work on it. On and on. I have the drawings for the TF-88 which was originally called the Artic Flame before the designer joined up with Fisher. I gave an insert to my brother and he still uses it. The fire box was the same it was suspended in a sheild so it could be installed as an insert. I have 2 friends that have the freestanding in their houses, the rest who knows where they are I do have the original brochures for the stove showing both of the doors offered. I told Coley that I am getting closer to going through boxes and boxes of stuff. Most of what I will find will be best for Coaley to have. That way he can keep even better informed. Oh well I am just going on now.
