  • Another great Firefox

    Paul W 4 years ago

    I took out a Firefox 8 to fit this stove as I was very impressed with that, but the 12 is even better. The double doors make loading logs easy and the size of the fire box is huge so make sure... []

    Stove expert replied: The problem of the stove going out if a good fire is not in the firebox before shutting down may also be caused by the cold flue, once warmed the draw is more effective and the stove burns well and is controllable. Otherwise a very happy customer who has experience of the Firefox range.

  • riddling

    Carol Cregan one year ago

    We are stumped as to how to do this. The small tool doesn't seem to fit anywhere & there doesn't seem to be moving parts?

    Stove expert replied: To operate: Offer the operating tool to the riddling bar (right hand side panel near base) and using slow positive movement riddle the grate back and forth. The reciprocating movement will clear the grate. The grate can jam occasionally with clinker or more often with nails and screws from used timber. Use shorter, faster movement of the tool to dis- lodge. If jamming persists then the obstruction must be removed when the stove is cold. If the grate is kept clear and maintained it will last longer.

  • Great stove but small problems

    Bought this stove a month ago as we needed a larger output and the prices for many of the 12Kw plus stoves were ridiculous! Saw this and read great reviews so thought we would give it a go.... []

  • Fire Fox 12

    Mr Pearson 3 years ago

    The Fire fox 12 is a heavy unit so I thought it would be a better controlled unit than it is. The door did not seal very well so I replaced the rope for a better quality one and the lock is... []

    Stove expert replied: You are asking a great deal from this stove to heat the three areas specified you need 22kW's of heat, this stove produces a maximum of 13kW's! Be careful not to overfire the unit.

  • help

    Elizabeth Morrison 3 years ago

    we have just had the fire fox 12 installed and my only concern is how do we clean the flue pipe /clean the chimney ,

    Stove expert replied: Firefox stoves have a removeable baffle / throat plate in the top of the inside of the firebox, remove this and access to the chimney can be achieved for sweeping purposes. It is good practise to have an alternative access point, say in the rigid flue pipe, as a back up.

  • Red hot

    M Turner 3 years ago

    It's a great looking stove real hot my only problem is it burns to fast even with both air streams shut its rages I think to fast is there any way to temper it?

    Stove expert replied: Get the flue checked as you may require a damper to give you more control of the stove.

    Installed a few months ago so given the burner a good run/test and generally very happy with it as it does what it says - Gets hot and puts out loads of Heat which is great for heating our large... []

    Stove expert replied: turning a stove down will tend to blacken the glass - the airwash works because a curtain of air is drawn across the glass to keep the deposits off and of course to achieve that you need to have the air controls open at least partly.

    We installed our firefox 12 2 years ago and we've been very pleased with it until this week when it has been filling the house with smoke I have cleaned all areas I can reach but it doesnt seem... []

    Stove expert replied: Check that the flue is clear (ideally have the flue swept annually). To avoid a build up of soot on the baffle (the plate inside the stove above the grate) this must be removed and cleaned periodically. This plate locates the back and side firebricks so note its position before removal. To remove, lift up centre section of baffle plate and manipulate through the gap in the outer baffle plate. Then, by lifting the outer plate at one side, remove the firebrick beneath. The outer plate can now be withdrawn. Clean off any residual soot from the flueway and baffle plate and replace in reverse order of removal. Check that the plates are located correctly.
