    Great little stove that looks much more expensive than others around the same price. Very easy to light as it draws very strongly since I had the chimney lined and insulated at the same time... []

    Stove expert replied: You may also need to get a flue damper or stabilizer if the flue draw is excessive. This will give better control and prevent damage to the stove.

    I've had a Firefox 5 for nearly 4 years and it has served me very well indeed. My only criticism would be that if I follow the manufacturers instructions to allow secondary burning the fire... []

    Stove expert replied: The airwash model in the CB version will have been modified so that it is always partially open this allows for the flue gases to be diluted continuously.

    Stove expert replied: Are the flue systems lined as this would help to keep the gases warm? Is there an air brick in the room?

    hello- I wonder if anyone can help? I've just bought a defra approved firefox classic 5 cleanburn, at least this is what I wanted to buy. The picture looks like what I bought, but I can't find... []

    Stove expert replied: The Firwefox stoves that comply to the smoke controlled areas will have an airwash that will not fully shut down. Then company that supplied this should be able to confirm which model they have sent and if it states clean burn on the receipt then this is the correct model.

  • Firefox 5 Classic (Defra)
