This is the replacement door handle assembly for Pacific Energy FP30 Wood Fireplaces. The PE FP30 Wood Fireplaces came in different door styles, and were released to the public in around 2017. This is a new PE door handle direct from PE that ships new in original packaging.
PE Part Number:50384 (sames as FP30.50384)
Applicable Models: Pacific Energy FP 30 Wood Fireplaces.
Purpose: The door handle assembly is designed to make sure the door closes tight on the wood stove. If the door is loose it will cause excessive air to come into the stove. With excessive air, it will be difficult to control the air flow into the stove. Excessive air could also lead to over-firing of the wood stove and the wood stove may warp or crack.
Installation tips: Take your time fitting the new door handle. Once it is on, do the paper bill test – while the stove is cold, take a paper bill and close the door on it in a variety of location around the door opening. The paper bill needs to be difficult to pull out.
