JUNGERS STOVE
[Return to Topics]

We have 2 two burner Jungers stoves that came out of my grandfathers farm home in Cooks, MI. A MODEL G86 and a MODEL D66.Plan to use the G86 to heat our shop. It has a tank on the back side and we aren't sure if is for fuel or to heat water.Both of these stoves appear to be in great shape. We have a manual for the G86 but it doesen't mention the tank on the back Looks like it might be a accessory. Not sure what fuel to use...kerosene??heating oil??diesel???Would appreciate any comments...HAPPY NEW YEAR !!! Andrea Frost in Frankfort, Mi.

If it's like I used, I used #1. The tank in the back was for carrying oil in if you didn't pipe it to a big tank. You had to keep the oil shut off and we used alcohol or I suppose you use kerosene to start it. You had to put the starter in the casting under the burner and light it. When it burned for awhile, before it burned out you turned on the oil in back and it burned just the fumes in the rings. Don't turn it up so it burns yellow above the rings or it soots up too soon. Clean everything out good beore you start and the burners have to be level. They were good burners and were cheaper to run than the old pot burners. Hope this helped. Bill

There used to be a lot of Jungers stoves in our area, and as kerosene became hard to get, and people started burning #1 or even #2 fuel oil in the, they became a lot more troublesome. For the "pots" to fuction properly and burn efficiently and cleanly, the fuel must vaporize on the cast iron bases, and the rising gases mix with air and burn as they travel up the perforated burner tubes, or "pots".

Kerosene just plain works much better in these units than fuel oil.

I'm not sure what a "Jungers" stove is. But I do know this.....Kerosene, diesel fuel, heating oil are all pretty much the same thing. I burn whatever is cheapest in my fuel oil furnace, which is usually "off-road" diesel fuel. If this stove is vented to the outside, then I would say that you could burn any of them. If it is like a kerosene heater that puts the fumes into the living space , then you will want to use kerosene. Kerosene is the cleanest fuel of them all. But any of the fuels should burn the same, I've used them all in the same furnace for many years with no problems, can't tell one from the other when in use.
