  • fire rope

    1 week ago

    After one year fire rope has become unfurled,split and come away from door. not happy. thought it would last longer before replacing any parts.

    Stove expert replied: Fire rope is a consumable item and replacement parts will be required to ensure the product stays in a good working order. Rather a shame that this required replacing so soon.

    Installed 4 weeks ago. Just burning wood. On our 3 rd use the glass on the door developed a huge brown burn mark which is not removable by any methods suggested here. The glass is burnt. We... []

    Stove expert replied: Have you gone back to your supplier to see if the glass could be looked at by the manufacturer? Marks should clean off if the correct fuels have been used and if the stove has been operated as per the instructions provided. Glass that will not clean can be caused by too little air going through the stove or indeed too much and the stove being overdrawn. Worth following up to prevent any further damage to the appliance.

  • Not Very Good

    I have been using my new fx5w for about two months. I am comparing it to the Clearview Pioneer 400 which we installed in our previous house. (The Pioneer also is rated at 5 kW). I had a look... []

    Stove expert replied: The firebricks may be able to be turned round many are dual aspect which would get over the etching in the front face. Regarding the smoke coming into the room this may not be the fault of the stove but a poor draw on the flue system,. Make sure that there is enough free air in the room by possibly adding a vent. Making the flue taller may help this or fitting an anti downdraught cowl could overcome the problem.

    Stove expert replied: Discolouration on a new glass should come off with a cloth dipped in wood ash or vinegar and should not be permanent.

  • window glass on fire

    John Brown one year ago

    not very pleased had the fire for six months the glass has started frosting and having to clean the glass everyday

    Stove expert replied: If the glass has a spiders web effect creeping across it this is normally due to a chemical reaction taking place where the stove is not being used at a fast enough rate of burn to remove the flue gases from the firebox quickly enough. If the marks are cloudy in appearance then it is due to the stove being over fired for prolonged periods. In both cases the integrity of the glass has not been compromised but the effects are not reversible.

  • good,could be better

    Thought I'd review the fp8 as there are no reviews on this stove yet. This is a very powerful stove for its size and it does a fantastic job of heating my whole house,a large 3 bed semi I haven... []

    Stove expert replied: The glass discolouration is likely to be due to the stove being shut down for prolonged periods, it is important to give short periods of fast burn at least twice every day if using 24/7, these fast burn periods should be for no more than 20mins at a time and will burn off any tar deposits that are produced. The discolouration is due to the gases staying in the firebox for prolonged periods and a chemical reaction occurs that affects the glass but does not affect the integrity of it, the marks will not wipe off.
