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... [ read more ]
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.

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... [ read more ]

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... [ read more ]
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 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... [ read more ]
I had my Bergen fitted at the end of January and I love it. The only issue I have (and I'm sure it's user error!) is difficulty maintaining a consistent heat level and using many more logs than... [ read more ]
Fabulous log burner, not cheap but quality.The "picture window" effect of the fire when running is superb with great heat output but as others have said, put plenty of kindling on to get it... [ read more ]

Stunning stove, make sure you prime it well with kindling and leave the door slightly ajar while it takes, once up and running and your used to it the temperature is easy to control. The brochure... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Great review.
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... [ read more ]
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.
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... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Sound advice for lighting a stove which may have a sluggish draw until the flue is heated.
We bought this stove months ago and it has taken a long time to get used to it. It takes a lot of kindling to get it going and it's quite often hit and miss. I like the look of it very much... [ read more ]
