    I'm a newbie; I bought a house in 97, came with stove; house built about 1976; stove, handle, and vent knobs worked fine up until a year ago or so; somehow the handle came off, and some parts must have disappeared, because it does not work as is anymore; looking for someone with same stove/handle that can inform me what is missing in terms of nuts, washers, etc; or where I can purchase a new one that is complete.

    Recenty purchased, 1st test burn with baffle plate installed. Good thing I did this outdoors because the stovebox paint began to smoke for an hour, which has me concerned if improper paint was used.
    Will try for a 2nd test burn tomorrow, if it smokes again, I'll be considering sandblasting to bare metal, then StoveBright paint.

    Is this smoke typical for curing StoveBright or Thurmalox paints?

    any of the high temp paints are going to have an off gassing until fully cured.

    Quakerfan, did firebrick get installed on the sides and back with the baffle plate?

    2nd burn yielded similar results, stovebox paint peeling and flaking.
    There was less visible smoke from paint, but now its burning and falling off, still off gasing noticeably smell. No firebrick was used, bare box test fire for 1-2 hours.

    The cast iron facade & door show no signs of paint burn, yet it appears same paint was applied. Decision has been made to sandblast clean, apply new paint.

    Install the side and back firebricks. The sides might be getting too hot or maybe the surface prep for painting wasn't good. Or like you mention the wrong paint may have been used. Or the stove could have had stove polish on it before it was painted. That has to be removed or the new paint won't bond well to it.

    Thank you. I think all your insights are correct. This stove is for a friend's hunting lodge, so I want it done right.
