  • Superb stove

    This stove is a dream. Easy to light even without kindling using hardwood logs and will burn steadily and strongly for about 45 minutes for every half log at around 350F to 400F. Tremendous... []

    Stove expert replied: The fuel is one key element to ensure the stove performs to the best it can. Nice review.

  • No one told me you need a really strong draught

    Sara Peacey 5 years ago

    It is a lovely stove but only suitable for very good chimneys. The literature does not make this clear. I have lined my chimney but it still doesn't work, the fire goes out if the door is... []

    Stove expert replied: I am sure that there will be a way to make this stove work better! Contact a chimney specialist for further assistance as it is shame if you are disappointed. Otherwise contact manufacturer for help as to how to overcome this problem.

  • Huge disappointment

    8 months ago

    This stove looks great but is almost impossible to control. The installer has extended the insulated flue twice - now 6m long in total. I have "discovered" that you can double the draft from... []

    Stove expert replied: The two controls and how they operate are explained on page 10 of the manual. As you have another stove in the property this may be affecting the flue draw on this flue system, did the installer do a flue draw test to establish that it meets at nominal effect there should be a negative pressure of 12 to 25 Pascal. Is there an sir brick in the room? Insufficient air supply can cause down-draught and thereby low combustion efficiency and the problems that this entails: soot stains on the glass, inefficient use of the wood and a soot deposits in the chimney. These are popular stoves and the problems you are experiencing are likely to be more to do with the installation than the stove itself.

  • disappointing

    Nina Coyne 10 months ago

    I have only had my stove for 6 weeks and am finding it very difficult to use. As soon as the thermometer gets to the recommend heat and adding the logs the temp drops and fire goes out. The only way I seem to be keeping the fire alight is by having the door open and that defeats the object. All the lovely flames advertised in the viewing window only last while the kindle is burning. I have watched the fire lighting video from nordpeis and still can't get it to work properly... []

    Stove expert replied: What length is the flue system, and what diameter? Is it a lined flue with insulation? Have you enough air in the room to allow for combustion? It sounds like an installation issue and the installer should be able to assist you further in the first instance to check that it meets with the manufacturers guidelines.

  • I am about to have the Nordpeis Bergen fire fitted

    Nick Armstrong one year ago

    I am about to have the Nordpeis Bergen fire fitted Does anyone know the distance the flue can come out of the back of the fire? I need to have about 750mm horizontal length to breach the wall and fit the 90 degree elbow. I have scored some of the ratings as a 3 until we have the fire working Many thanks Nick... []

  • RE-Review of my Bergen Stove

    Tom Langton 3 years ago

    As promised here is my update- I mentioned that the stove seemed a bit sluggish and reluctant at first- and that I would consider a liner for the chimney if things didn't settle down- Well here... []

    Stove expert replied: This is very disturbing as the installer should not have left the brush in the flue which could be very dangerous as the flue gases would not have free passage to get away. I am pleased to hear that now all is well.

  • Burgen - excellent wood burner

    Jane 3 years ago

    The tip is to load it with kindling and small logs (and I mean load it!), keep the door slightly open until the flue reaches 200 centigrade (400 farenheight, you will need a flue thermometer... []

    Stove expert replied: Sound advice for lighting a stove which may have a sluggish draw until the flue is heated.
