    Stove expert replied: It sounds as if the inside components have not been put back where they were originally if all that has changed is that it has been thoroughly cleaned out. Please check the manual for guidance on where the parts should be located.

  • Very warm

    Andy Bryson last month

    Great stove, looks good too. Heats our 3 bedroom detached very well. Usual problems with cracked rear firebrick. The blanking disc at the back has fallen off recently and the lugs that the disc... []

    Stove expert replied: The blanking disc can be re-attached with fire cement but without lugs to hold it in place this will be a temporary fix only.

  • Issues with the glass, after 2 years.

    RaymondDocherty 4 months ago

    After only having this stove for 2 years, the glass has fallen out. I expect it is something that can be fixed, but I have lost confidence in this stove. i.e. Even if the glass was fixed, I... []

    Stove expert replied: If you are getting fumes or smoke back in the room then you need to get someone to look at the installation as these should rise up the chimney and not come back into the room. It is unfortunate that the glass has fallen out but this can easily be fixed.

  • Disc fell off from back

    Ken James 4 months ago

    Firefox 5, had it a few years now. Without warning the rear disc fell out from the lit stove. Does anyone know why & can it be fixed or is it dead? Thanks

    Stove expert replied: If you are referring to the closure plate for the flue that is not being used this can be put back in with fire cement providing it is not damaged or a replacement can be purchased.

    Stove expert replied: The cast craking can be down to many causes and this shoudl be investigated further. A stove thermometer will insure that it is ioperated within the correct perameters and is a good investment.

    Stefan 4 months ago

    only had 20 burns in ours and the glass cracked while it was burning whats that all about ? what temp can I let it get to ? only burning kiln dried wood ,thanks all,Stefan

    Stove expert replied: I would suggest that a stove thermometer be purchased so that you know you are using the appliance within the correct parameters. Glass can crack at any time and this may not be due to impact in any way, rather unfortunate.
