    We have had our Newborne 40fs since the end of November (3 months) and had to replace the top (roof) fire brick 3 times already! We are definitely not banging it and seems to split and fall... []

    Stove expert replied: The glass discolouring with a white milky shadow is normally caused by the stove over-firing, this may be down to operator error or an over -drawing flue. If the stove is not controllable, so that you can achieve a gentle flame picture, then the flue draw should be taken and if it exceeds the manufacturers guidelines this needs to be rectified. Either a flue damper or stabilizer is required to prevent further damage. The top brick breaking 3 times in such a short space of time may indicate an over-drawing flue and if you get this corrected the problem may be resolved.

    Stove expert replied: Is the flue lined? Does the air flow noise continue if the controls are fully shut? It may be that the flue draw is excessive for this stove!

  • Update on fire

    3 months ago

    Now we are into the winter months thought I would give update on the stove , Can't fault it no problems to report on stove Door handle etc I when it is up and running , you get a great heat from the fire as explained in last post Now that I have the experience of the air I controls I find the best setting for good burning to set the top & bottom air settings to 1/4 of an inch from shut This gives a good burn on logs , also when adding new logs place log on fire and leave door open slightly till log catches fire ,then shut door , but as said still very happy with this fire...
