This is the replacement door handle assembly for older Pacific Energy Wood Stoves with the square door. This kit also replaces Pacific Energy Part Number WODC.AHAN. Newer Pacific Energy stoves have rectangle doors and take a different door handle assembly (wodc.4147C).
PE Part Number: 80000656 (replaces old part numbers WODC.147 & WODC.AHAN)
Applicable Models: Super Series serial numbers 70,000 to 154,000 (it may work in other Pacific Energy wood burning stoves and inserts).
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.
Other Notes: This door handle fits the old square door Pacific Energy Wood Burning Stoves. If your Pacific Energy has a rectangle door, then you will want this kit instead.
Please Read: This handle is a threaded handle used on the old square PE doors, serial numbers 70,000 to 154,000. The older PE wood handle (for 55,000 – 70,000 – was part number WODC.AHAN) – is discontinued from Pacific Energy. For older doors, sometimes the nut inside the door needs to be removed and / or it needs to be drilled out. IF its a current PE door style, then the handle number is: WODC.4147.
This replacement Pacific Energy Door Handle is in stock and will ship within 1-2 business days.
