    Does anybody know what section I can post a couple of pics of my wood stove in that somebody may be able to recognize the brand? There's no tag on it, and I need to get some info. for it. Any help would be appreciated. Thx!

    Go ahead and post it here if you like. If it fits better in the hearth room after looking at it, we'll move it over. If there is no tag and it's a newer stove (early 80's and newer) then it's probably just lost. No tag before that usually meant it was pre-UL approval.

    I can guarantee you this is in the right room.

    However, I am sorry but I can't help you identify it.

    You looking to know just out of curiosity?

    went back and found your original thread. http://www.hearth.com/econtent/index.php/forums/viewthread/83438/

    Looks like you need the info for insurance purposes. I had the same problem w/ my old fisher stove (no UL tag). First few insurance co's I talked to wouldn't do business unless it was UL listed. Ended up with travelers who used generic guidelines for an install of a non-UL appliance (roughly, 18 inches of non-combustible in front of loading doors and 36 inches to combustibles) (more info found here http://www.hearth.com/econtent/index.php/articles/installing_a_woodstove)

    It looks like you are having troubles for having less than the 18 inches in front of loading doors and perhaps too close to combustibles in the rear? Knowing the requirements of that specific stove could help reduce that if it is less for it (doubtful that it's less though). I'd still suggest calling around and find a company willing to work with you. Then we could help you either make the area around that stove suitable or else find a stove that will work for that spot.
