This is the replacement door handle assembly for Pacific Energy Fusion Wood Stoves. The PE Fusion Wood Stoves were the ‘modern’ wood stove from Pacific Energy. This door handle assembly will not fit other styles of Pacific Energy wood stoves.
Part Number: 80000795 (replaced old part number DRFS.4638 in 2019)
Applicable Models: Pacific Energy Fusion Wood Stoves (check the part number, it may work in other Pacific Energy wood burning stoves, Pacific Energy wood burning inserts and Pacific Energy wood burning 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.
