    Only 3-4 and that many issues?! Trying to sell something on CL that needs repair gets about as much money as bringing it to a recycler.

    I agree with the previous comment. Given the issues with the stove I'd personally offer you no more than 100 to 150 bucks. Selling used and broken on craiglist is a fast way to attract pennies on the dollar.

    Is the blower gone or just making loud noises? Hard to sell something you cant demonstrate working.

    $50 bucks for a blower motor and some door gaskets along with a couple hours labor should make it an attractive stove to sell in the $400-$550 range.
    Maybe $300 if you don`t.

    That is if you wait till close to fall before trying to sell otherwise you will be just dumping it on a very soft market. I just picked up a Ecoteck Elena a couple weeks ago for $500 that was shown to run.

    englanders flood the used market and don't fetch a lot, especially broken. Restore it, learn something, sell it in good faith to someone in need or donate it for full retail value as a tax write off
