  • very dissapointing

    Rob Brev 2 years ago

    The fire was installed 3 years ago, recently had it inspected and was found to have large crack in the back plate, also the throat plate had melted. It has been condemned, so we complained to... []

    Stove expert replied: What a shame, a stove should be controllable so as to allow a gentle slumbering flame picture and if this is not achievable then this should be investigated to prevent over-drawing and the problems caused by this.

  • Franco Belge Savoy - three years old

    Phillip Lucas 2 years ago

    Great stove... until today. Whilst chimney sweep replaced fire gum, he noticed two cracks: one in the back and one in the top plate. Will revert to dealer and let you know what happens...

    Stove expert replied: This stove has a 5 year warranty so this should be covered by this.

    Right from installation when new it burned too fast and was taking in too much air. It seemed to be very inefficient and gave little heat. I have just discovered that air is going in underneath... []

  • Savory Cracked Casting

    Chris Young 3 years ago

    We have a Franco Belge Savoy which has been fitted for ten years. We have now found fractures running top to bottom on the rear of both sides of the stove. We now have to buy another stove... []

    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. Modern stoves will have been adapted and improved and as this is 10 years old should not be compared to a new product.

    Stove expert replied: If the stove is working hard and you have little control (not sure that I would say your does as it stayed in overnight) there are things that can be done to the flue to slow the draw. Further investigation recommended.

  • I had my Savoy for two years

    Johan Baard 4 years ago

    I have the boiler attachment and that works very well although after a year I have 'knocking' in the pipes when burning very hot. The boiler of course competes for wood space inside the stove... []

    Stove expert replied: DO NOT USE FRESHLY CUT WOOD ON A STOVE - NEVER - NEVER. Get the plumbing checked as you should not be able to hear any knocking sound and it may be that the water is not getting away from the stove quickly enough!
