Have been using my little wenlock 3 for 8 years. Overall a fantastic stove, BUT I have just changed my fuel to ovoids and fitted a new glass as the last one was pitted. The new glass has started... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: The bars should be fitted as per the manufacturers instructions. The glass going cloudy is indicative of the stove being over-drawn (running at too high a setting for more than 20mins at any one time). The stove should be controlled so that short periods of fast burn only are undertaken where the controls are left fully open.

Great little stove for heat output. Used daily, for seven years, in the colder months and definitely raises the overall warmth of our home. Like the stove a lot but it has its problems. We... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: If there is enough space behind the stove you may not need to have the stove taken out, some blanking plates fit by twisting into place once it has been slotted into the hole. As you have two stoves, the flue draw may be poorer on this flue and therefore more airflow into the stove may be required to maintain clear glass or even more free air in the room itself. You could also tey an alternative fuel as they do vary and another may not have the same effect on the glass.
Lovely looking classic stove, door handle doesn't get hot. Ash pan has a good depth but could be wider - some ash inevitably falls past it into the bottom of the stove. I use an ASH-VAC which... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Ash pans rarely fill the whole width of the stove due to opening that it passes through being narrower than the main stove body, this has to be smaller to give the stove strength. Plus points for this type of design means a larger fire grate for fuel and ash spilling outside the ashpan can be annoying but is easily cleaned with an ashvac. Ashpans usually have 3 high sides so it can be used as a shovel to collect any spilt ash on the back part but can mean that ash falls off the back when removing - there is no easy solution I feel!
Downside is...if your flue is top mounted, the baffle plate will need to be removed to sweep (unless you have an access door in the stove pipe). To get this out, it will more than likely require... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: If a stove flue pipe with access door in it is required, fitting this instead of breaking the baffle plate for each sweeping would seem a good way to resolve the issue. The baffle plate should be removed regularly to check any build up in the flue and I would suggest monthly which may prevent it being a problem when sweeping time comes around which is less frequently. Routine maintenance is suggested for all stoves and is often not undertaken except once a year when sweeping takes place, removable parts should be removed so the stove can be cleaned out thoroughly monthly.
