  • Why does my coalbrookdale severn give off any heat ?

    Heather 2 months ago

    I have moved into a property which has an existing coalbrookdale severn installed. It has been disconnected as a boiler, and is purely a fire. I understand that the fire is far too big for the... []

    Stove expert replied: Any boiler stove must not be used unless connected to the water system, they are not designed to use as a dry stove. If this is not going to be used to heat water / central heating it should be removed and a suitable model installed in its place. Is the chimney lined as it is recommended for modern efficient stoves in a property older than approx 50yrs, depending on chimney type and size. I recommend getting professional advice so that you can enjoy the warmth from a stove that suits your needs / requirements.

  • Burning Wood with Severn

    Joan Ribbons 7 months ago

    I use this stove as a wood stove. Having recently replaced the very worn gasket I find I cannot generate good hot heat any longer. I close the 2 vents at the bottom of the stove as always, and... []

    Stove expert replied: If the stove is working hard and not generating heat it may that the flue is over-drawing and sucking the heat out of the stove before it can circultae into the room. The gasket that ylou replaced was this from round the door or the glass? If the control on the stove doesn't alter when you operate the vents then you may want to look at adding a flue damper or stabilzer to the flue system. Seek expert advice.

    We bought our Severn boiler stove 'as new' but second-hand over twenty years ago and it has been a faithful servant all that time, Heating 7 radiators and loads of hot water using mainly anthracite... []

    Stove expert replied: www.stovespares.co.uk - may be able to assist you with a replacement boiler. Manufacturers normally have replacement parts for several years after a stove has been discontinued so it is quite possible that one will still be available.

  • Coalbrookdale Severn multi-burner with boiler

    David Baldwin one year ago

    This is the second Severn I have owned now in 15 years. At a cost of £600 for the first one it was a lovely centre-piece for the room. After approx ten years it developed a leak at the back... []

    Stove expert replied: As this is the second stove to leak in 15years I would advise having a thorough investigation into the installation and operating process of this unit as there may be something that is causing these premature leaks. (using wet fuel, no low limit stats, a direct cylinder, spring water, no short periods of fast burn or other causes that are attributing to this). Understandably disappointing.

    Stove expert replied: If a stove is looked after it should be a good investment and bring a good return for the initial outlay.
