place then gently slide the hook out of place
and lower the smoke curtain to be able to remove the shaker grates
and shaker frames first you have to remove the front and
back liners the front liner is located below the furnace door first remove the two firebricks adjacent to

the back liner like you did for the fron tliner now
carefully slide it out of place and out of the furnace again remember to put your firebrick back
in place now to remove your shaker frames and shaker grates first open the ash pan door they are located above
the ash pan to remove them simply slide them toward you
and then out of the furnace do the same thing for your second set to be able to replace either piece first

push this set until it slides together and attaches with the first
one they should meet and connect together in
