Having had a bit of experience with Force 10 stoves, I can tell you they can be worked on. The valves are Italian, the parts
are available from Sure Marine
, and they can be completely disassembled and pop riveted back together. It can also be an opportunity to upgrade the insulation
, which will improve the efficiency.
Attached is my "hod rod" Force 10, which I converted into an eye-level oven model for my multihull
. Previous stoves on my boat were all Magic Chef
from RV suppliers. Too many pasta dishes cooked in salt water
destroyed the all-steel units, hence the desire for something more dependable. The pic shows the stove partially reassembled as I await some parts
