Review of Charnwood Island I stove

Island 2

Mark Meleady 1 week ago

We have this stove for years. Very easy to use. The only downside we have is that the Air control has never worked. It makes no difference if you push it in fully or pull it out. It burns fuel at the same fast rate. I have checked the doors and had them resealed but no improvement. Any suggestions?

Stove expert replied: Have you had the flue draw taken as this may be making the stove work hard with little response from the air controls? You will use a lot of fuel for the heat that is generated as it is being sucked out of the stove more quickly than it should if the draw is excessive.
