    Had this fire 5 years, love it. Only problem I have is the trim has gotten discolored with the smoke. How can I clean this effectively or can it be repainted?

    Stove expert replied: You can buy paint to respray the trim if the discolouration does not clean off. Is it where you open the door to refuel the stove (Just top centre)? Have you an air brick in the room to ensure there is enough free air for complete combustion?

    Stove expert replied: Might be worth trying: HEAT RESISTANT PLASTER 20kg High temperature smooth finish. Protection up to 500°C For use on walls & chimney breasts, hole in the wall fires adjacent to: Inserts stoves, freestanding stoves and range cookers. WHAT IS HEAT RESISTANT PLASTER? Heat Resistant Plaster is a replacement material for gypsum plaster where the temperatures are too high for gypsum plaster to stay on the wall. Heat Resistant Plaster is a fully blended fine powdered material which is mixed with water to a trowelling / floating consistency. WHERE TO USE HEAT RESISTANT PLASTER? On walls and chimney breasts where the temperature is likely to exceed 50°C particularly around the so-called “hole in the wall” type fires and stoves. It is recommended that the plaster is used in combination with HeatProof Screed. HOW TO USE HEAT RESISTANT PLASTER. Remove all traces of old screed and plaster on the wall or part of wall to be treated. Prepare the area by coating with PVA (as is usual for plastering). Re screed using Heat Proof Screed prior to applying Heat Resistant Plaster. Mix the plaster with water using a mixer drill attachment, it is not possible to mix properly by hand. Allow about 10 minutes to get the material onto the wall and about an hour subsequently for floating. Leave three days to dry naturally before any heat is applied. COVERAGE: 20kg tub will cover approximately 2m2(21 ft2) at a thickness of 6mm (1/4”)

    Stove expert replied: Have you had the flue draw checked as parts should not be wearing our so quickly that they need replacing every year.
