Hello my name is Adam and I live in Lykens Valley in Dauphin County Pennsylvania. Recently purchased my first home at a public estate auction that had a Baker Stove insert. Both owners are deceased so I had no information on when or how they put the stove in. I grew up in a home with an open burning fireplace used for ambiance. My first thought was to rip the stove out, sell it, and use the open burning fireplace. Because I grew up in Harman Stove country (started in my hometown) a several of my friends use either Harman wood burners or pellet stoves. They both said- trust us and give it a try. I had a licensed professional (http://www.hoffmansoutdoor.com/) come out and clean/inspect the stove. The first fire was a total disaster because I did not know I had to "prime" the flue with this set up. I did so by rolling up a piece of newspaper and sticking it up the flue. I did some research (mainly on your forum) and am have some pretty good success with heating the home in the evenings until we leave for work in the morning. I work until 8 in the evenings on weekdays so I don't get to make a fire until then but get a good one going by bed time and it stays comfortable in our house (1,200 square foot brick ranch home) until we leave for work in the morning. Looking forward to my first weekend of burning for several hours. I contacted the manufacturer and have found out that it was produced in the mid 1980s. The model is a Baker Falcon Wood Stove. I have attached a picture of the stove for you to put in your picture library for anyone that needs help identifying the stove. I'm not sure how to put it in your library, perhaps a moderator could help. Two questions that after searching was unable to find information on: 1- This stove has a "blower" system. Do you guys find that as a "gimmick" or the real deal? I think it works fantastic. 2- The manufacturer recommended that I attached my magnetic thermometer to the door of the stove and run between 275-475 but I'm not convinced that is the best spot for it. Thoughts? Great job on the site and great information here, thanks to all that have contributed.
