  • Disappointing

    T Keddle 3 years ago

    After about 3 months use the grate bars started to deform and break. The fire is always riddled and emptied when necessary although we do run it hot as it heats a large house. We did eventually... []

    Stove expert replied: You say you run the stove hot, are you running it on max al the time? When you riddle the stove do you do this until red embers fall into the ashpan or do you keep riddling until no ash is left? Do you empty the ash pan straight away or leave the ash to build up in the ash pan? Only riddle until red embers fall into the ashpan and try to leave a bed of ash to protect the grates. Empty the ashpan straight away. If the grates have stretched it could be the metal bar that they sit on has also moved and the new bars will not sit properly.

    We had this burner installed in September 2012 in our kitchen come snug. We mostly sit in our front room in the winter months using the burner in the kitchen only to dry washing because our... []

    Stove expert replied: Glass does not come with a life time so it seems strange that you were given this information and it is not covered by a manufacturers warranty, It is classed as a consumable part and I feel that you have been very unlucky for both to crack at the same time. This is unusual, what fuel were you burning? Some fuels when burning slowly can produce more gas than is being removed from the firebox, that builds up and can cause it to ignite and this may be what caused the glass failure.

    Cape Winters can be very cold and wet. And up to quite recently we had an open fireplace which, understandably, was heavy on fuel and pretty inefficient. So chose this wood stove option. It'... []

  • awful!

    Roy Rowthorn 2 years ago

    I grow up with a parkray so in my new house when the oil central heating packed up I new straight away that I wanted to convert the house to parkray what a mistake where do I start! the ash pan is far to small, it does not fit in the hole so ash falls through the grate & goes everywhere you can't clean it out properly as there's a big lip in the way you can't get the tool on the ash pan as it does not fit in the gap the fire bed is far to shallow the thermostat is pointless as it just over rides what you do anyway and let's it's self go out over all a really badly designed stove give me my old 20 year old parkray anyday of the week, the ash can fitted property you could clean it out as there wasn't a lip around the bottom I could go on I want to take it out and replace it but looking around they all seem to be the same badly designed things with no thought given to the end user...

    Stove expert replied: Very disappointing feedback. Always research a stove prior to purchase to insure that it provides the features that are required. Modern stoves will be different to their predecessors due to on-going development and research that manufacturers continually undertake. Changes made are to enhance their products for ease of use and in this case it appears not to have fulfilled this customers requirements. No evidence that Parkray have been contacted regarding the ash handle that should be covered under warranty if it does not fit.
