    I've had the Burley Brampton for one year, I've worked on many Burley stoves and they burn wood extremely efficiently, the fireball allows oxygen in all areas to get every last bit of heat from... []

    Stove expert replied: Over drawing flues can be controlled by a flue damper / stabilizer and should not affect the flue causing condensation, it helps to gain control of the stove when the flue draw is excessive.

  • Burley Brampton

    2 months ago

    I, like many other customers, have milky deposits that cannot be removed. The fire has always shut down to slumber mode and I don't think that I have ever over-fuelled it. My previous log burner... []

    Stove expert replied: The stablilizer should come with fitting instructions and I would suggest that these are followed to prevent further damage. The manufacturer will have tested these to ensure that they correct the fault.

  • Burley Brampton Glass

    I have had my burley Brampton for about 2 years and it has cost me a lot of money in parts, I have needed to replace 3 glass panels because of milky front which would not clean off. The cost... []

    Stove expert replied: A stove can be overdrawn if the flue draw is in excess of the recommendation that is in the manual provided with every stove, it is not something that the customer will be in control of unless a damper or stabilizer is installed. Due to the continuous failure of internal parts this would seem to be the case in this instance and it is not a fault of the stove but down to the installation. Milky / cloudy glass is also indicative of an over drawn stove where it is subjected to higher than normal working temperatures for pro-longed periods, the flue draw should be checked urgently and remedial work undertaken.

  • Another Brampton with opaque glass

    7 months ago

    Then the left side of the glass became more and more difficult to clean until the entire left half of the glass had become opaque. Went back to the dealer a couple of months ago and they contacted... []

    Stove expert replied: Have you tried changing the fuel as this may help? Have you got full control of the stove? Can the stove shut right down to a slumber mode? This is normally due to over-firing of the stove or an over-drawing flue system. A stove thermometer would help to maintain the correct operating temperature.

  • Airwash doesn't work

    Steve Randall 11 months ago

    White ash covers glass within hours, requiring a clean at least once per day. Some misting of glass has already occurred and can't be removed with the supplied ceramic hob cleaner. Permanent... []

    Stove expert replied: If the stove is over-drawing causing a smoky appearance on the glass that will not clean off, this is not the fault of the stove but an installation problem that can be controlled with the use of a damper or stabilizer and should be explored further to prevent more damage occurring. This can normally be verified by the stove not being able to be shut down so a slumber mode is possible, little heat being generated for the amount of fuel being used etc. Do check that the door seal is working effectively (shut a piece of paper between the body of the stove and the door (when cold) see if this can be pulled out, it should be firmly in place showing the door seal is working effectively, should it come put easily then the door needs adjusting to regain the rope sealing against the body.

  • Airwash doesn't work. Very disappointed,

    Steve Randall 11 months ago

    Exactly like David Digby's review, we too already have damaged glass (permanent mistiness not removed by any cleaning, even the ceramic hob cleaner supplied with the stove) and it almost completely... []

    Stove expert replied: Cloudy glass is normally caused by the stove being over-fired, this may be due to an over-drawing flue and is not a fault with the stove. If the stove will not shut down to enable a slumbering fire then getting the flue draw checked should be carried out ASAP to prevent further damage. (This should be done when installation takes place but may vary depending on different weather conditions). The glass can't be cleaned completely once the cloudy deposits are visible in this situation and the damage does not affect the integrity of the glass. The only was is to replace the glass once the cause has been established and rectified.
