  • Problems with flame sensing & flue blockage safety system

    3 months ago

    We have had a Firefox 5 gas stove for approximately 4 years and have had constant problems with the flame sensing & flue blockage safety system. We have had the flue swept and checked out with... []

    Stove expert replied: It would be beat to contact the supplier/ manufacturer to get expert advice on this due to already replacing some of the parts on the stove.

  • leaking smoke

    Helen Buffham 4 months ago

    I have had the firefox 2 weeks now and when I light it or bank it down for the night it leaks smoke from underneath the lip at the front of the burner, the guy who fitted it has been down and... []

    Stove expert replied: The flue gases are staying too long in the fire box due to not enough lift to remove them, leave the airwash open more and check that there is enough free air in the room to allow combustion to occur efficiently. The flue draw appears to be poor and an air brick may be required, making the flue height taller may also help. The installer can do a flue draw test to check that there is sufficient draw to match the stoves requirements.

  • Decent small stove with a few minor flaws

    Mike Woolley 5 months ago

    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.

  • Looks great, having some problems

    Tommy Dutton 6 months ago

    Had my stove installed last week, it's very easy to light, burns any thing but the upper air vent opener ( over top right of door) only seems the move (open/close) about 2cm?? I can get the... []

    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.
