Stove expert replied: You do not say what the problems are that you are experiencing so unable to advise specifically things to check. The installation is key and would be a good starting point along with having the chimney swept, making sure there is enough air in the room and the fuel is a good quality.

One issue mentioned by many reviewers is the air flow. I assume that the slower air flow is due to the re-burner above the stove box. To avoid smoking, I only burn 2 year dried and split wood... [ read more ]

Stove expert replied: Disappointing review of the Jotul stove. Is there an airbrick in the room? The flue draw may be an issue and should be checked to insure that the stove can function correctly.

Stove expert replied: Always give a stove a short period of fast burn (15 - 20mins) twice a day to insure that the residues produced during a slow burn period are burnt off and do not build up as this can cause chimney fires and smoking problems as described above. Regular checks should be made to see that the flue remains clear.

Stove expert replied: As this problem is a new one then it is best to look at what has changed to find the cause and rectify - I am sure this can be done so that you can enjoy your stove again.
