    Hi,

    I just bought this stove but the woman I bought it from did not have a manual. Does anyone have one? Is this a good stove it burns coal and wood. I just paid $700 for it was that a good price or was I taken for a ride? I dont have a clue but is seemed ok. Thanks for any answers you can give me.

    Denise

    Russo made good coal stoves from what I've read. You might try to contact these folks for the manual:

    Hey Woodbutcher, could I get a copy of that manual too ?? I just set up what the dataplate says is a #2 C/W built in 1980, however it seems to be missing a few parts, I would like to view the manual to see what else is missing. Can't beat the price - There's no Bee like a Freebee !!

    I have a #2 Coal Stove (Russo) and it is not represented by that manual. It doesn't have blower cutouts. I also have a #2 coal wood combination which this manual properly depicts. Does anyone know of a manual for the #2 coal with the circular grate?

    I'm pretty sure this is the same model of stove i have but i'm having a problem
    getting my flue liner to match up to the stove outlet.

    the pictures in the manual show a round outlet, mine has a square outlet and i'm
    just wondering if there is some adaptor that i can buy or if i can just weld up my
    own adaptor to get it to my flue liner?

    That stove is an insert and I would imagine it is supposed to directly vent into a conventional rectangular fireplace. (like the one I have)

    Guys - you may want to start a conversation with WoodButcher. Or possibly start a new thread. He is still an active member of this site (but not so much recently). This is pretty much a zombie thread started waaay back in 2008.
