  • Firefox 5 multi fuel stove

    Gerald Marshall 1 week ago

    Had this for 3 years now, burn coal, logs, paper, scrap wood etc on it & it keeps my detached 4 bed house nice & warm. Had no problems with it & would recommend it. For the cost if I needed to replace it every 3 to 4 years it would be cheaper than most others, but no sign of that happening.... []

    We have the Defra approved version in our 3 bed house now and its great keeps us nice and warm but now we have a slight problem , I recently cleaned the flue and there is a plate inside the... []

    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 8 months ago

    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.

  • A little disappointed

    Kelly Everson 11 months ago

    We have now had this stove for about 4 months, correctly fitted via registered fitter we have noticed the metal plate to the back if the inside has cracked, not sure if this is unsafe now, we... []

    Stove expert replied: Is the metal plate crack in the stove body itself as if so would recommend that you seek further advice as to whether it should be used.

  • Issues with the glass, after 2 years.

    RaymondDocherty 11 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 11 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.
