    Door came off of Jotul 4B Combifire

    We recently scored this great wood stove but when opening the door, it came completely off. We’re having trouble getting the door back on and wondering if anyone has had the same problem and if so, how were you able to reattach? It is a Jotul 4B Omnifire. Thanks in advance!

    Hey how's it going, looks like everybody here is pretty knowledgeable on the subject, so I had to join. I just bought a manufactured house and it has a Marco fireplace already installed. I've never burned wood before but the fireplace was tempting so I cut and split a bunch of wood and...
