Need help identifying the model of this fireplace. Roughly 30 years old. There is no information on the fireplace. The insert that came with the fireplace was a napoleon, I however don't know/think the woodstove is a napoleon.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

That's a pretty fancy insert. Are there no labels or identifying stamps on it? If it's a Napoleon, look for something saying Wolf Steel.

The ashlip and air control looks similar to napoleon 1400 series

I was wondering if it was an Oakdale predecessor.

I believe Napoleon puts their UL tag behind the left cover where the blower bolts in.

I agree, the closest resemblance I could find online was the 1400 series.

There is a Wolf Steel label with a code that reads 757076E but unfortunately that leads me nowhere.

Does it have a secondary burn tube running north to south? maybe this will help?
I think it does.

I believe that is a Napoleon 1000 or EPA1000

Wolf Steel is the parent company of the Napoleon line. This looks like an early model. The model is on the tag. It is hard to read, but it looks something like MFNC? The design does resemble the 1000. Perhaps this was a fancy insert version of that stove?
