Emergency Parts to Keep on Hand:

We've had many readers asking us what parts they should keep on hand in case something breaks down.  The simple design of the Hawken outdoor wood furnace means that there are very few parts that could actually stop your furnace from operating and these don't go bad very often.  Still, there is the occasional problem and we want you to know what items will be handy to keep on hand.  It could mean the difference between a warm nights rest and a long cold weekend waiting for a UPS delivery. 

There are only a few components on a Hawken furnace that could go bad and be hard to find a replacement for quickly. 

The parts are:

the Blower - HE-1100 Blower or HE-2100 Blower



High Limit Switch

We've put together a package that you can order from our online store.  Actually there are two kits.  One for the HE-1100 and one for the HE-2100.

Here's the links:

There are two other parts worth mentioning that could cause some problems with your furnace operation.

The 3-way switch on the front of the furnace may fail and keep the furnace from operating properly.  This is a normal 3-way switch that can easily be purchased from any hardware store. 

The other is the pump.  A pump failing can put your whole furnace in danger of freezing.  Having a spare pump (even a small one) can help avoid big problems. 

Hawken carries two sizes of pump.  The larger pump is the standard for installation.  Admittedly over-sized, this brute pump is strong and powerful.  The smaller pump will work for most home installations and will, at the very least, keep your water lines moving until a replacement pump can be procured.  Both pumps are available through our online store and can be viewed here:

1/25 hp pump

All these parts are available at discounted prices through your local Hawken Energy Rep.
