"OEM" or Original Equipment Manufacturer are parts that the stove manufacturer makes themselves or outsources from other suppliers for their specific stove models. When you order replacement parts for your pellet stove directly from a manufacturer or it’s retailers you can be certain that these parts will be “OEM”.
"AMP" is an acronym that stands for After Market Parts. This is equipment that is sourced out directly which cuts out the stove manufacturers hefty markup. AMP equipment works exactly the same as its OEM counterpart, especially when you’re looking at blowers, igniters, fire backs, switches, gaskets and controls, as quite often, they are made by the same exact manufacturer that supplied the OEM parts as you will see with many “Fasco” blowers and “Gleason Avery” auger motors.
Here at Stove Parts 4 Less we like to offer you the choice of the OEM and the AMP version of products whenever possible to save you money. In some cases we like to offer multiple versions of the AMP part where they are made by the same manufacturer as the original or an alternative version at an even lower price.

What Coal Should I Use in my Wondercoal 2827?
The Wondercoal 2827 can burn either bituminous or anthracite coal. While anthracite will provide a long burn time and low emissions, it is also more expensive. Bituminous coal is more readily available but will produce more soot and require you to clean your stove more often. Each coal type requires a slightly different fire starting procedure.
Burning Anthracite Coal: Anthracite coal should be roughly the size of an egg. To start, open the damper, turn the thermostat to high and place kindling on the grate. Open the ash pit and feed doors, add some larger pieces of hard wood, and then layer on a thin layer of coal. Once the first layer of coal is burning steadily, add a second layer. Ensure that you leave glowing coals in the center of the firebox before adding more coal. Close the dampers only once the fire is well established and the room is beginning to warm up.
Burning Bituminous Coal: When starting a bituminous coal fire, start with wood to allow the fire to reach the right temperate to ignite the coal. Start with soft wood for kindling, and then add harder woods to increase the temperature before you add coal. Wait until your wood fire has produced embers before slowly layering in the coal, making sure that each coal layer ignites before you add more. Once you have a fire burning steadily, form a cone of coal in the center of the firebox. This method will ensure a more efficient burn.
