I have a Siegler 4247u1 stove that I want to use in our cabin. I need to learn how it works so I can repair it. I may also need parts but we'll see. I figured someone here would know a little about them.
Is the pump necessary or can it be gravity fed? It's rusty and missing some knobs, I seriously doubt the thermostat works. I'd be OK with removing any features that aren't absolutely necessary for the heat to work, and OK with having to turn it off manually if it gets too warm inside. It's just a weekend place.
I believe it can run on No.1 or Kerosene. My Great Grandma had one just like this in her house as the only heat source. I have a lot of memories of that stove so it'd be cool to get this one working. I know electric is easier but I want something for when the power goes out. There's already a wood-burning stove in another part of the cabin but this would sure be easier.
Thanks for any help. All advice is welcome!
Mine is just like this one I found on eBay. There's an electric pump and blower that will have to be rewired. I really don't think I can get the thermostat working though, and have yet to try the pump.
