    Stove expert replied: Glass can become discoloured if the stove is not working hard enough, (if the stove is slumbering for most of the time). A chemical reaction can occur as the flue gases stay in the fire box for long periods and then attacks the glass. The strength of the glass is not affected by this. The stove should have short periods of fast burn at least once during an evening use and twice if the stove is used all day.

    We have the Fireline FX5W version of this stove and we love it. I will say the fireproof boards in our stove have also cracked and cracked within a month of us having it. I've only every burnt Seasoned wood. The W version of this stove gives a lovely big viewing area of the fire. Best one I've seen.... []

    Stove expert replied: The fire liners are still suitable to use with a crack in providing they are protecting the metal of the stove and are staying in place.

    We have only had our stove fitted for 2 months also and are sad to say our second fire brick has cracked again. As we are only using kiln dried wood we feel this fire is simply not up to the... []

    Stove expert replied: A flue damper may solve the problem of the over-drawing stove. Firebricks will crack but can still be used providing it is staying in place and protecting the metal of the stove.

  • Problems with firebricks inside the stove.

    Julie Gray one year ago

    We have had this stove for a few months and love the heat we get from it especially now we are burning coal. But our second set of internal firebricks have cracked. Anyone else got this problem... []

    Stove expert replied: Household coal should not be used on the stove only smokeless fuels and care is needed when re-loading the stove to prevent damage to the firebricks. If they crack you can still use them providing they are protecting the metal of the stove, to help keep them in place use fire cement as a bonding agent.
