    We installed the stove ourselves and followed the instructions to the letter but am very disappointed with the size of the inside chamber. We now have to cut our wood much smaller which means... []

    Stove expert replied: I assume that you had not seen the stove before purchase due to the comments made regarding the firebox size. I would recommend that seeing a stove is worth doing before purchase so that there are no illusions over the product features, size and build construction etc. If you are only burning wood perhaps a designated woodburner would have given the larger firebox that you refer to, and would prevent extra cutting of the logs, it also provides the most efficient base for the ash to build up on should a grate not be necessary. Leaving the door ajar for a short period is often the best way to get a stove lit and with extra air ion the room should provide the best conditions for combustion. Was the chimney lined before this stove was fitted or at the time of fitting? Is there insulation round the liner to keep the gases warm. Has the installation been signed off by Building Control? Liners are some thing that are not covered under warranty by manufacturers due to being classed as consumable and the need to replace them periodically. Providing the liner is staying in place and protecting the metal of the stove you do not need to replace it, you can use fire cement to help keep the pieces together. A MAD anti downdraught cowl may help to solve the problem that you are experiencing with smoke coming back into the room, they have a good success rate.
