Just recently purchased a second home. It contains a small wood burning stove. A few fire bricks are cracked but in place. The door/window seal appears to be in poor shape. The stove was made in 1997. It was made by Century Heating in Canada. Don't know how much use the stove had previously and if the stove pipe was ever cleaned.
Wondering what is the service life of this type of stove and should I try to repair it or purchase a new stove.
