  • Poor Quality

    I have owned the Hunter Hawk from new. I was being patriotic by buying British.I found it was impossible to control the air intake.I finally discovered the door is twisted, unfortunately by... []

    Stove expert replied: Hunter warranty on doors is 5 years providing the stove has been installed and operated as per their manual. The cause may be down to over-drawing due to the installation rather than a fault with the stove itself. A flue draw test should have been taken when installation was undertaken. (There are methods to overcome an overdrawing flue should this be found to be the cause.) Your warranty claim should be taken up with your supplier to investigate if you are eligible for a new door should the stove be less than 5 years old. Cast doors do not generally twist, it may be the stove body that has distorted.

  • Hunter Hawk

    If likened to a car the Hunter Hawk would be a Lada. It does the job (just) and is nothing special but will get you there. After 5 years it looks tired and even after new firebricks and an overhaul... []

  • Hunter Hawk 4 double sided single depth

    Simon Davies 10 months ago

    Had the Hunter Hawk 4, Double sided, single depth, and installed it 3 weeks ago, if your expecting heat from this then don't buy it. Ideally would like to sell it back!

    Stove expert replied: There are several factors why a stove fails to produce the heat expected. Firstly is this the correct size stove for the space you are trying to heat? Has this been installed correctly with adequate air for combustion? What fuel are you using and is it dry and seasoned with a moisture content on less than 20%? I would suggest that you go back to the installer to check that the flue draw is correct ect. The output that can be expected is 4 - 6kW.

  • Nice little Stove

    Berenice Anderson 2 years ago

    This is a lovely little stove, the only problem is the glass keeps cracking and at £35 a time it's getting beyond a joke, had the door replaced once by Hunter as they reckoned it could be twisted... []

    Stove expert replied: Please insure that the fixings on the glass are not over-tightened as this may cause it to crack. Start with a gentle fire and gradually increase the heat may help.

  • Lovely stove but the replacement glass isn't cheap

    Berenice Anderson 2 years ago

    We have had a Hawk 4 for nearly 7 years and we love it, gives out brilliant heat, sometimes too much if that's possible, the only downfall is the glass keeps cracking, after numerous replacements... []

    Stove expert replied: Check that the fixings are no being over tightened and that the gasket between to glass and door is in tact, a shame about the glass problem when other aspects of the stove are so good.

  • Hunter no longer the best, far from it.

    Laurence 3 years ago

    A perfect example is the application of poor quality screws used in the glass retaining clips, discovered when attempting to fit the replacement glass. The glass in the Hawk spontaneously cracked... []

    Stove expert replied: Disappointing comments but not sure of the age of the stove, screws often cause problems once the stove has been used so may be worth WD40 periodically and just undoing them and re-tightening to insure they are moving freely in future.

  • disapointed

    Aluzzi 4 years ago

    Very disappointed with output, heat goes straight up chimney. I need to leave door open to get full benefit, always putting logs on. Top reflector plate sits in loosely can be dislodged when... []

    Stove expert replied: Again get the chimney / flue checked to insure the flue draught is not too strong. Is there a good clearance round the stove to allow the heat to radiate freely?
