  • So far so good

    We had two of these stoves fitted in our downstairs living rooms at the beginning of November 2016. Having used them extensively over the winter that followed it seems appropriate to review... []

    Stove expert replied: If you are only planning on burning wood you may find that a wood conversion kit would improve the performance, downside is you will need to remove the ash using a fireside tool.

  • Stovax Stockton 5 ....... a waste of time and money!!!

    Sarah Curtin 2 months ago

    Had our stovax Stockton 5 fitted straight after Christmas and had a problem getting heat out of it so the salesperson came round with some wood of their own as they said ours must be too damp... []

    Stove expert replied: If the stove is producing the heat that the manual states then this heat has to be going somewhere! What size is the room that the stove is in? Is this the correct output stove for the space you are wishing to heat? What clearance have you round the stove? Is the flue lined? Does the stove respond when you shut the air controls down? There will be a reason for the lack of heat you are expecting so further investigation of the installation and stove size is recommended, this may not be the fault of the stove!

  • Stovax 5 Multifuel

    5 months ago

    Hi. Can anyone advise how to slow down the burn on my Stovax. I push in the lever underneath the stove. Close the airwash but it still burns too quickly. Is it too ambitious of me to want... []

    Stove expert replied: Is the stove a smoke exempt model? If not and all vents are closed and still the stove works hard then please check all seals round the door and glass. (Shut a piece of A4 paper between the body of the stove and to door (when cold) if the paper can be pulled out then the rope seal needs replacing or the door needs adjustment to closed more tightly. The flue draw might be excessive and control of this can be achieved by adding a flue damper or stabilizer to the flue system, you should discuss this with your installer who should be able to undertake a flue draw test to ascertain if this is the cause of lack of control. If the stove has had the defra kit added then this will prevent the top air control from shutting fully and it is unlikely that an overnight burn will be achieved. The bleed of air allows the flue gases to be diluted so that this complies with the current smoke exempt requirements.

    We had this stove installed this year. It takes a bit of getting used to as it has quite a small combustion chamber. This makes it quite sensitive to changes in air settings. Once you get used... []

  • stovax gas stove - remote horribly noisy

    Stephen Dear one year ago

    Had this gas stove installed just before Xmas. Delighted with the stove but the remote control although working is incredibly noisy when switching on/off or adjusting.

    Stove expert replied: Have you followed up the remote issue as this does sound strange?
