    Fitted a Charnwood 16b back in September 09. Tended to use smokeless fuel rather than wood. When used 24/7 during the winters of 09/10. Kept the house warm, plenty of hot water for the two of... []

    Stove expert replied: Clearing the ash from the ash pan will help to maintain the grate system this should be done twice daily, also leaving a small bed of ash on top of the grates helps so do not over riddle the stove.

  • charnwood 16b - multifuel boiler

    A Leitch 7 years ago

    I would not recommend this stove to anyone.We bought and installed the stove4 months ago and from the beginning we have had problems. i.e. it overheats the room BUT it does not heat the radiators... []

    Stove expert replied: The 16B does give a relatively high heat output to the room in which it is installed - up to about 7kW to the room when burning wood. This is in contrast to many other boiler stoves which tend to give between 2 and 5kW to the room, even bigger stoves than this one. It sounds like the incorrect stove was specified for the heat load of the room - this person would probably have been better off with another type of stove.

    Stove expert replied: Great feedback. Love the tip about getting the nails out of the firebox! It can a while to get the best out of a stove and always worth experimenting until you find what works best. Sounds a very warm home now!

    We installed the stove in march this year,its just great, house lovely and warm and alot cheaper to run than our last heating, wish we had done it years ago. The only downside we have is one of the glass doors cracked a few weeks ago! We use a thermometer so we do not overfire! Don't know what could have caused it. ... []

    Stove expert replied: Glass can crack at any time and there may not seem to be a reason for this, probably just unfortunate!

    Stove expert replied: Is the flue lined? Is there an air brick in the room? Get the installer back to check that it has been installed as per the manufacturers instructions. It sounds as if there is a problem with the overall installation, certainly worth checking this out!

  • A great stove

    Kim Sale 5 years ago

    We bought this boiler stove aiming to heat our 11 radiators in our three bed-roomed high ceiling house. It took a while to set it up, not the stove but the existing piping that had to be changed... []

    Stove expert replied: If you have heated the stove to such an extent that you have already broken the retainer grill I would suggest that you get a stove thermometer to insure that you are not overfiring this product. Stoves have an optimum working temperature and if you exceed this you can shorten the life expectancy of the components.
