The only issue we have is that fitting the multifuel grate does reduce the chamber considerably. With a bed of coals in the firebox and if you add a log it is quite near the throat plate and... [ read more ]

Stove expert replied: The smokey appearance on the glass may indicate the fleu draw is excessive and could be why you are using so much fuel. Check the door seal is doing its job by shutting a piece of paper between the body of the stove and the door, if you can pull it out then the door needs adjusting. If this is not the cause I would get the installer back as you may need to add some control onto the flue system so that full conbtrol of the stove is resumed. This will allow the heat generated to radiate into the room rather than being sucked up the flue and you will use less fuel.

Had my stove installed last week and very pleased with it. Good heat output, lights easy enough, good size display window and so easy to use, a lovely feature in the room.

Love the stove but finding it really hard to get a good flame burn. The logs just seem to smoulder with a few flames. Draw on chimney seems fine. Could the logs be too damp?
Stove expert replied: Have you a moisture meter to check the content is less than 20%, really recommend having one to insure the stove has the best chance to perform as expected. Damp wood makes the stove struggle and can cause flue problems so not recommended.
We had this stove installed in Feb 2014, we had big problems with it drawing too much, had the installer back three times to try different things with the air control. He even fitted a storm... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Is the chimney lined and was a damper used to see if better control was gained? Strange that fitting a cowl made so much difference, what type of cowl was fitted? It may not be the stove but an installation / flue problem.
I reviewed this stove about 15 months ago shortly after we fitted it. We were delighted then and we still are. The stove lights easily and burns well. Our house is open plan. The stove keeps... [ read more ]

Stove expert replied: It may pay you to try a different type of fuel as some produce far more ash than others. Once you have put the fuel into the stove, move it towards the back so that the ash produced is kept away from the door. Once you have riddles to stove leave the ash to settle before enptying the ashpan and this will minimze ash particles in the room when you open the door.
