Hi, I have the same stove and have a manual which I'll xerox and mail to you. You can text me your address to 610-220-2270Hi,
I recently bought an unused but rusty Atlanta Stove Works 15-36 cook stove. I am refurbishing this stove and am in need of a parts and users manual.
If you have one for sale, or a copy/scan of one, please reply with costs. I would appreciate it.
Thank you all for your considerations,

Thanks! I actually went through and read the entire thread after I posted my comment last night and saw your earlier post stating the same.Clean out door to remove creosote and tar, a very sticky substance that forms under oven when used with wood.
A steel door can be made to seal as good as possible. When starting on coal you need ALL the incoming air going through coal bed to get coal to ignite. Any leak there allows indoor air to rush into chimney cooling it, reducing draft which is what creates a low pressure area in stove and connector pipe allowing higher atmospheric air pressure to push into intake feeding oxygen through coal bed. With wood, this air leak allows cooler indoor air into chimney the same way, cooling the chimney, causing the fire to slow as well as create creosote in chimney. So it needs to be closed as tight as possible during operation of either fuels.
AndreaSo, we have this range also and have the clean out door. I would be happy to get some pictures and dimensions to help with fabricating a new one if you would like.Thanks!

Hopefully my husband can fabricate something to work, as we are intending on using this stove, not just keeping it as a decoration.
I just found this forum by googling the stove name and this thread popped up. I got the stove yesterday off of craigslist. It's actually in pretty good shape, minus the missing clean out. There is asbestos lining the firebox and ash clean out doors (we think) that we're going to have to handle, but other than that I believe everything is cosmetic.
I need to explore this forum more- our main issue now is going to be building a non combustible wall to code surrounding the cook stove. We have a concrete floor in our kitchen, which is good, but need to figure out safe placement against our walls (logs) or set into our very large kitchen island.
Are there any good threads you can point me to with pictures and ideas of what others have done in regards to this? We are familiar with the general rules- just looking for ideas at this point.
