    This is a great stove that really packs a punch in terms of heat output. Looks great, small enough to fit nicely in a standard fireplace so does not encroach on room space. Very efficient and... []

    Stove expert replied: Always worth reading the small print on any warranty not only when purchasing a stove. Consumable items will not be covered, these include, liners, glass, baffle plates etc

    Had the stove for two years and it performs superbly, heating several rooms, although the window does not stay clean (probably my fault). Jotul site gives good general advice but you have to... []

    Stove expert replied: 4.1 Replacing the Air Chamber Remove the door to avoid any damages to the glass or enamel. Disconnect the top plate of Jøtul F 3. This is connected to the side plates with 2 collar head screws - one on each side. See fig. 3. Remove these with the Allen key which are supplied with the stove. In the case of side/rear connection, the following should be done: Unscrew the heat shield (fig. 4B). It will then be possible to use a screw driver to keep in place the screw which is situated there. 2. Unscrew the nuts under the air chamber at the back edge (towards the back wall), one on each side (fig. 8). 3. The air chamber is fastened at the front to the side burn plates with the screws (fig. 9). These are loosened and the air chamber can then be lifted out from above. 1. In the case of top connection, the following should be done: • • Lift out the ash moulding (the log stopper). The air chamber is lifted out through the door opening with one hand, while at the same time flipping in and pulling out the one of the side burn plates. The air chamber may now be lowered diagonally and twisted out via the door opening. Assembly of a new air chamber Follow the same procedure in reverse order. Page 24 of the manual for servicing procedures.

  • problem with smoking

    I was interested to read the review by Bob as we've had a similar experience with our Jotul F3. We bought it second hand & for the first year or so it worked brilliantly. Then it started smoking... []

    Stove expert replied: Please check that the internal baffle plate has not become distorted as this can cause smoke problems, at the same time check all seals to insure they still function. The weather can be a factor but a cowl may well overcome this problem.

    Stove expert replied: Have you got trees surrounding the property which have grown that could be caausing the problem. Might be worth getting the flue checked as this may need lining! Seems strange that it worked well inititially, very disappointing!
