We recommend that you lay down a drop cloth and clean the firebox prior to conducting the steps below.
1 Remove the doors and place them aside. Remove the top loading door and place it aside.
2 Remove the side firebricks (and clips) and place them aside.
3 Remove the back heat deflector and place it aside (the allows for access to the nuts that hold the firebox back plate in place).
4 Remove the back brick retainer holding the back brick in place (“U” Brick). NOTE: The ½” bolts holding the retainer in place are used only to hold the brick in place. If one of these bolts breaks off, we recommend that you leave the threaded portion inside the cast iron damper assembly. Two bolts are sufficient for holding the retainer in place.
5 Remove the back brick, interram gasket and combustion brick
6 Remove the combustion brick gasket (located on the floor of the firebox, directly in front of the combustion box).
7 Remove the firebox back plate. You will need to unscrew the four countersunk screws from the front while securing the nuts on the back of the stove.
8 Remove the two bolts and nuts holding the damper assembly in place. Remove the damper assembly.
