    Cathal O'sullivan one year ago

    This stove is pathetic. I have done an experiment with a thermometer. Temperature of (what is supposed to be a small) room rose from 14C to 17.5C after 4 hours of vigorous burning. Like other... []

  • Stockton 7 - Don't buy

    Paul Peters one year ago

    I have had this stove for about 5 years now. I have tried everything to get to get it to work like other stoves I have seen working. I have made sure the chimney it set up correctly and spent £1000 of a liner even though I was told it was not really needed. I have had the chimney cleaned and a number of stove specialists check it out, each who tell me something different. My wood is very well seasoned. Some kept indoors and dry for well over a year. I have refitted the glass robe and door rope 3 times and done it well I have to say. Stovax are poor when it comes to customer support. Even though I have been a 'nice guy'. The stove continues to eat up logs, there is minimal air control and the glass always gets browned up unless I have the stove on full burn. Therefore, this stove is very poor value, the manufacture delivers poor service as do their outlets I have found. ... []

    Stove expert replied: Have you an airbrick in the room? Perhaps there is not enough draw !! What height is the chimney and was the liner insulated to keep the gases warm?

  • Open fire replacement

    Trevor Wainwright 3 years ago

    Decided to have a stove fitted to make it safer and stop the carpet from being burned. Was told that the inset was the only one that would fit and went ahead with it just over a year ago.... []

    Stove expert replied: Has the chimney been lined? If the stove is working hard and not producing much heat then quite possibly the heat is going up the chimney or into the void that has been filled (may not be filled enough though). Further investigation recommended.

    I have had this stove for three years now. Initially I was unsure if this stove performed well, as I found the heat a little low, and the airwash wasn't great. What I am now saying is that this... []

    Stove expert replied: Please do not use damp wood on your stove as this can lead to problems in the flue system, there should be a moisture content of 20% or less.

    I installed this stove a few weeks ago and I am delighted with the end result. The supplier insisted I use the flexi pipe and insulate the chimney even though it added a lot on to the cost of... []

    Stove expert replied: I hope you have had Building Control in to sign this installation off as this is required. A liner will improve the efficiency of a stove and is recommended.

  • Stove Glass Crazing - again.

    B.Berry 4 years ago

    Stovax Milner Inset Stove.Since the stove was fitted in January this year it has already needed a new tempered glass window due to crazing and `spidering`(long cracks in the glass)when it was... []

    Stove expert replied: Crazing that gradually creeps over the glass is normally due to the stove not working hard enough and this allows the flue gases that are in the firebox to attack the glass. Operate the stove at a higher temperatures for short periods of fast burn at least twice a day and this should prevent it from getting worse. The damage to the glass is permanent.
