    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.

  • stovax gas stove - remote horribly noisy

    Stephen Dear 10 months 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?

  • Sensitive to controls. Smoke Control Unit design is odd

    Martin Wingate 11 months ago

    I echo some of the comments on this stove. It seems very sensitive to controls and wood that is slightly damp.The Smoke Control Unit is designed to prevent you from fully opening the airwash... []

    Stove expert replied: The Smoke Control Kit will not allow the air wash to fully close (not open as stated above) this is to ensure that the flue gases remain diluted at all times, it will affect the way the airwash works and as the customer has found may lead to deposits in some areas. These deposits should easily burn off or wipe off providing seasoned dry fuel is being used. If the airwash system is not working correctly it may be that it is not installed correctly and would be worth getting this checked.
