Will the teddy bear heat a 1500 square-foot house?Grandma is a 4 legged stove. That is a Teddy Bear. They are normally 7 inch outlet compared to 8 inch Grandma.
All Fisher doors lift right off. The hinge pins are actually solid rivets. If they are stuck from not lubricating with grease or anti seize as they should be, you may have to drive them out with a punch. I’ve had some so stuck so bad they needed to soak with penetrating oil. Rotating carefully without marring the head with pliers usually gets them to move. Once removed, wire wheel pins and clean holes. Lube with high temp grease or silver anti seize. The pins should remove easily by hand and doors lift right off when lubricated properly.

You do realize you cannot install that stove in california right? What lopi are you replacing?Coaly
I’m used to the grandpa Bear stove will this one work the same? I will be replacing a Lopi with this? Any problems I should know about. I’m assuming the air vent is just through the door vents And not up through the pedestal
They were probably using them as a grate to elevate the fire. Burn on the stove bottom, and as ash accumulates, always leave about an inch of ash to burn on.Looking for a little more help. Once I had the teddy bear Fisher stove moved I saw these three pieces inside the fire box. Just laying there. I don’t know where they belong in the stove any help would be appreciated
Yes I am able to just use my fireplace poker to open and close the vents and I may leave a glove there toKeep a glove near the stove if you must use your hands. The large fins were designed to be turned with your foot in a sock or shoe.
Keep the threads lubricated with high temp grease or silver anti-seize. You can reach through the opening on the back of the door to keep the threads coated. They spin very easily and you don’t have to touch them hard or press against them. The edge stays cooler, I have mechanics hands so it doesn’t bother me. This also prevents wear. Same with door hinge pins.
