    Stove expert replied: Coal is not a recommended fuel for most closed appliances, use smokeless fuels that are not petroleum based. Empty the ashpan regularly and do not let the ash build up in it. Be careful what you use on the outside of a stove as there may be a chemical reaction with the paint if a genuine product is not used.

  • Brilliant

    Hi Had my Wenlock in place for 24 years. Coming to the end of its life now. I am going to strip and attempt a rebuild but expect the cast is worn out from constant temp change. It has been a fantastic servant. I want the same fire but the new ones have the "Airflow system"... []

    Stove expert replied: Improvements in the modern stove should only enhance the performance and should not put you off a direct replacement being purchased.

    I inherited this stove in a mobile home that I bought and lived in for about five years. The stove looked nearly new when I bought the mobile home. It is fitted with a back boiler which was... []

    Stove expert replied: I hope that when you install it again that you incorporate some safety features such as a high temp header tank and heat leak radiator. This stove is not suitable for pressurised systems.

    We bought a Mk2 secondhand, not knowing what make or model it was. It has proved to be a very good little stove that helps to boost the heat in the Lounge Bar of our pub.

    Mark Blythe

    We have had this stove from new for 7 or 8 years. Good at heating our little cottage in the Outer Hebrides. It has been a welcome little workhouse. We have however had a problem with it cracking... []

    Stove expert replied: It does sound as if the stove has become too hot, are the liners still protecting the firebox?
