  • fire fox 8

    Matthew Eteson one year ago

    Had this fire for 2 years and it has split and the cast has cracked. I would not buy one again, they are cheap and made in china but nonetheless I can't recommend them due to what has happened... []

  • firefow 8 top adjustment never worked

    John Pollock one year ago

    Great wee fire but the lever at the top doesn't move. I am assuming it is for adjusting the flue but it doesn't move or do anything. Is it supposed to?

    Only had the stove installed for 1 winter and have loved getting to know it. At first it wasn't giving out much heat and eating wood like you would believe. Installing a flue damper has solved... []

    Really like my Firefox woodburner. However a log has become lodged behind the lock on the inside making it impossible to open the door. Any solutions appreciated!

  • Firefox 8 Classic & Firefox 8 both Defra approved

    David Day 2 years ago

    Had the Classic 8 fitted in the kitchen with Twin Wall Chimney, only had 3 small fires to break it in, great to light and control by the secondary air, only burning wood sycamore between 15-... []

    Stove expert replied: It could be that the draw on this flue is greater than the other flue and hence causing less controllability, you may wish to investigate if a damper will help. Defra Approved stoves will not shut down completely as they have been modified to allow a bleed of air at all times to keep the flue gases diluted and cleaner emissions for the smoke controlled areas..

    Had this for 4 years now and it was a nice little burner, BUT now all the bricks have disintegrated and the top baffle plate is warped down by at least 1.5 inches and is cracked. Replacing the... []

    Stove expert replied: Spares may seem expensive but if you average it over the four years it is a reasonable amount for the operating times that a stove is used and for the heat it is generating, which also saves on other heating costs. You can purchase a sheet of the liner material that you cut yourself which may make it cheaper and worth exploring.

    Had this stove for two winters now and it is fab. Only burning seasoned wood, which more than heats our cold room. I have also had an issue with smoke coming back into the house on occasions when initially trying to get the fire going. Any ideas? Is it due to cold flu?... []

    Stove expert replied: Yes most probably due to a cold flue, try leaving the door slightly open initially as this will help to lift the flue gasses ans warm the flue faster. Check that the cowl on the chimney is the correct one and also check that you have enough air in the room.
