Stove expert replied: 1. Perhaps you need an anti down draught cowl on the flue or more air in the room to solve this problem as it is not the stove at fault but the flue system / installation. This should be investigated further. 2. A rear flue option should not cause any problem if the flue draw is adequate and you have not exceeded the max length of 150mm, it may not suit your situation but having the option gives more flexibility. 3. Glass can crack at any time and as it had been in tact for a month would not imply a faulty product. 4. Internal components do usually require a knack to remove and re-install, if it is undertaken on a monthly basis (as suggested) you should become more familiar with finding the easiest wasy to undertake this proceedure. 5 and 6. Unsure if you had poor customer service from the company you purchased the stove from or from the Manufacturer. 6. If the air wash is misaligned then this should be covered under warranty and should be taken up with the supplier.

Stove expert replied: A room heater is what it says and if there is only a door way between spaces then the radiant heat to this space may not be that great. It will obviously raise the temperature but may not be man enough for full heating. Open plan spaces are much easier to heat from one appliance.

Stove expert replied: Rope seals should be checked at least annually when the routine maintenance is undertaken. It is important that these remain in a good state so that the stove can worked effectively and efficiently. Also check the glass gaskets, locking mechanisms, lines and baffle / throat plate and replace as necessary to insure longevity of the stove.
Great looks the part works well Pleased
