  • Fantastic

    My heart was set on the Aga Wenlock SE for my London flat but the stove fitter suggested I look at the C4. Having read lots of reviews, I bought one and it sat in my front room for a while before... []

    I have a 2 bedroomed flat on the first floor. So all you flat dwellers can do this too. Although from the first floor, bear in mind dragging fuel up the stairs can be a pain. But I have to say... []

  • Disaster waiting to happen?

    Jacki Hebblethwaite 3 months ago

    At less than a year old the internal back plate buckled. The pin to the handle is also loose and has to be knocked back frequently. The back plate is not covered by the guarantee but is, apparently... []

    Stove expert replied: The stove is not dangerous if it is operated correctly, installed correctly etc. The flue may have a draw that is too strong for the stove and can be corrected with the addition of extra flue components, I would suggest getting in touch with your installer for further assistance and advice.

  • Problem with door

    Josephine Scurry 6 months ago

    The stove is everything people say it is, but I've had major problems with the door. The top hinge nail pin dislodged and the door fell down while fire was burning, I managed to replace it.... []

    Stove expert replied: The hinge pin may just need a tap on the bottom edge to splay it and therefore make it a tighter fit. As far as the glass working loose, if the gasket failed this may be down to an over-drawing flue and some extra control may be required (normally a damper or stabilizer). As I do not know how long the stove has been in it is difficult to be certain, other indicators are that the stove is using a lot of fuel and not producing the expected heat output, when the air controls are shut the stove is still working hard. This should be investigated further to prevent long term damage to the stove.

  • Incomplete stove supplied with poor back up - disappointing

    Christine Bradley 6 months ago

    A number of the parts were missing from the stove and 3 months on the issues are still unresolved. Have dealt directly with the manufacturer - they were very unhelpful and unwilling to resolve... []

    Stove expert replied: Manufacturers do not normally deal direct with customers as they use their suppliers to provide this service, the supplier is who you have your contract with and should get any missing parts for you.
