Lovenholm stove

The Lovenholm stove comes in several variations, single door and double door as well as wood burning and multifuel The clean lines are typical of the Scandinavian style. With the multifuel stove you have a riddling grate, which you can change quickly to make it suitable for burning wood. This model has a 'cool-touch' handle in stainless steel. This sturdy stove sits on four legs and the large glass panel in the door gives a good view of the fire.

  • Great little stove

    last month

    After doing a huge amount of research we had one of these installed in April. Our previous stove was a Morso Squirrel but our budget was tighter on this occasion. Reading the reviews on this... []

    Stove expert replied: Clean the glass with a cloth dipped in vinegar or wood ash, stubborn stains may need treating more than once. Do check the glass gasket and rope seals to make sure they are intact. Wood needs to have less that 20% moisture content and short periods of fast burn are required and should help to keep the glass clear. Clean out the inside of the stove thoroughly and drop the baffle / throat plate down to check that this does not have debris on it causing restriction of the flue gas flow. There is likely to be a cause if this was different when first installed so investigating and eliminating will need to be undertaken so that it can be rectified and clear vision can be once more achieved.

  • Good but no cigar.

    2 months ago

    Had this (Lovenholm, single door) ordered a double but online supplier sent the wrong one, (refunded the difference, we live at the end of Cornwall) fitted by professional and certificated to... []

    Stove expert replied: It may be the case that a simple re-spray over this area will solve the problem as perhaps the paint was thinner here than the rest of the stove. Rust will form is a damp atmosphere (could be due to building work) but likely to be surface only. The supplier should have followed this up with the manufacturer as it was reported within the year.

  • SMELLY

    3 months ago

    Lovely burner in looks and heat output. I have the single door log burner so good view of flames. The only gripe I have is the noctious fumes given off when burning. The installer said it would... []

    Stove expert replied: A stove, once the paint has cured should not produce any unpleasant smells so I would get the installation checked to ensure that there is nothing causing this (something too close perhaps to the flue system!). What fuel are you using and how hot are you operating your stove? It is a shame not to enjoy your stove and there will be a reason for this smell I am sure.

  • Griddle rack problem

    Jayne Evans 10 months ago

    Hi we have a Lovenhom one single door and inside our fire at the back, our bar across the back griddle is buckled. Our supplier and fitter say it's been burning too hot and we know it's not... []

    Stove expert replied: The fuel used may be one of the hotter brands (anthracite), if this is the case a small bed of ash should be allowed to build up on the grates to help protect them and it is very important to remove the ash once you have riddled the stove (do not over riddle, only until red embers start to fall in the ash pan then stop). If you leave hot ash below in the ash pan the grates can get distorted over time especially when the ash builds up close to the grate system, The board cracking behind the stove, is it special fire proof boarding, is it the plaster that has cracked? What clearance have you between the stove and this board, ideally 150mm gap should be left.

    Thank you for that advice. This was not offered or suggested by the retailer. I will look into it.

  • Hot embers faling out worse than ever

    Chris Robinson one year ago

    After a few more days' use it is clear that this stove has a major design fault. The lack of an upstand at the front means that more often than not hot embers fall out when the door is opened... []

    Stove expert replied: There are two options that you may find useful to overcome the difficulties that you have explained one is a multifuel front extension which is an optional extra for this model should multifuel (wood and smokeless fuel) be the fuels of your choice. If you only wish to use wood however, then a wood burning conversion kit can be purchased which will give a larger firebox for logs and a more solid base to allow the ash to build up and provide the most efficient conditions for wood burning. There is no need to consider returning a stove when the options are available from the manufacturer should they be required and once you use an appliance often you find what it is you are really looking for and can then bespoke the stove to suit your needs. The manufacturer has covered both options and perhaps the supplier should have made the customer aware of these at the time of purchase.

  • No grate to stop fuel falling out

    Chris Robinson one year ago

    This is a well made, nice little stove. A little slow to get going, but this maybe a flue height issue (we run with door ajar to get it going). The main gripe is that when you open the door... []

    Stove expert replied: The riddling mechanism should not be removed, normally a woodburner only will have some protection on the base and the stove has not been designed to use in this manner. Try to load the fuel as far back into the firebox as possible which should help.
