I have a Better N Bens wood stove. It is the larger model of the two fireplace insert stoves that were available back in 1977. With this stove I have a side blower housing that inserts its nozzle into the stove's side to supply air flow around stove and out the stove's top into the room. The blower within this housing is no good & I need a repair/replacement. Any & all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I love our Better N Bens. Just recently tried Brickenmore Eco Bricks from Eagle Valley Eco Fuel located in Connecticut because we are running out of wood. The bricks worked out great with very little ash.

I have a cottage with a Better N Bens stove insert that is attached to a 0 clearance fireplace. A Chimney Sweep told us that it is not to code and needs to be replaced. Had a second Chimney Sweep in that said it is OK. Any comments on this? How does this affect insurance - NY State.

I'm selling my used Better'n Ben's wood stove because my flue is cracked and too costly to replace. I've already installed a propane wall furnace in its place. The wood stove's data plate says manufactured by Hayes Equipment Corp, Unionville, Conn. 06085 15867. What is suggested price?
