Hello everyone. A new guy here. I'm trying like hell to get my door handle to turn on my model 2 Russo Wood and coal stove. I've tried WD-40 and WD-40 penetration fluid along with heat from my yellow tank plumbers torch with no luck. Anybody know any special tricks that may help? I don't know if they sell new handles or even how to put on a new handle short of snapping the old one. Any help or ideas would be great. Thanks, Neil V.
