  • Decent small stove with a few minor flaws

    Mike Woolley last month

    It's a solid little thing which heats effectively, but suffers from the flaws inherent in low cost appliances. Handle is slightly loose and therefore cumbersome to latch despite regular realignments... []

    Stove expert replied: The Defra stove may have been installed to enable a 5" (125mm) flue liner to be used so do check before you undo any of the modifications that have been made to this stove. If a smaller liner has been used then only a Defra Approved stove should be used on it, current regulations state that non - Defra models require a minimum liner of 150mm.

    Stove expert replied: Is the stove a CB version? If so the air control will not close fully. Was the flue draw tested at the time of installation as if too high it will suck then heat out of the stove before it has time to radiate into the room.
