It is in good shape but have a few questions for anyone in the know:
1. After looking in the smoke outlet, I noticed a mouse ate a 1 inch hole on the far left top of the catalytic chamber (see pic). Can I still use the cat chamber and/or is there a way to patch it?

2. Is there a small plate on the back of the stove near the bottom? I don't see one on mine, but see something labelled rear plat bracket in the diagram? (see pic)

3. Is there a small heat shield that can be bolted on to this? Can I use the same heat shield from the 600 for my unit?

4. Anyone have a left burnplate laying around I can buy off them? Just realized mine is missing!

Thanks so much..

Paging @Ashful to see if he has any spare parts.

Without the rear heat shield the stove will need 36" rear clearance unless there's a proper wall shield behind it.

Thanks begreen, I am installing a wall heat shield (1" air space) as well. But the unit heat shield will lower my clearances even more.
