Stove expert replied: An outwardly well thought out product, nice and minimalist, does everything well, albeit not doing quite as much as it promises for heating radiators. But boiler has just failed after 5 years and thus a major decision coming up... Factory suggested getting a mobile welder.. But what happens if it happens again? Surely the bad reviews rising on this factor should make them look to a redesign here? The finish has come off the top a bit but other than a bit of surface rust there, it still looks quite smart. Door has sagged a bit. Has anyone else rewelded one of these and been pleased with the result, or do you live in fear..? How long should a boiler last? I can't honestly say I'd want another one unless heavily discounted in order to fit the exact same pipe work in the house! Stove Expert Replied: Welding a small patch in a boiler stove has been undertaken successfully and longevity of the stove is extended. Trying to find welders who are prepared to undertake this work on site is a big factor. Premature failure can normally be linked to some aspect either of the installation, fuel used or the way the boiler is operated and further investigation into the failure is advised. This model has been superseeded by the Ecoboilers that have internal baffles for a quicker heat up time. As with many manufacturers innovation and improvement are an ongoing process.

Great stove mine with back boiler. Good heat output providing the wood is hard wood and very dry. It can heat my 11 radiators in my cold bungalow and makes the whole house very cosy

We have one of these boilers but haven't installed it yet. I see thermal stores mentioned in a couple of the reviews. Is this something that you have to have with this boiler? We have used tirolia... [read more]
Stove expert replied: This stove can be installed with an open vented system and a normal domestic hot water cylinder. It can be linked to a thermal store for a more complex system if required. Tke further advice on this is required.
Bought this, as recommended would be best option to heat a 500l thermal store. We seem unable to get the thermal store up to temp, without the use of oil fired backup. Does anyone suggest... [read more]
Stove expert replied: Yes I do feel the long run to the heat store is a problem, if gravity then it should not exceed 6mtrs max and be rising all the way, also pipe size important to get the heat away from the stove. What temperature have you got the thermostat set on? If the water is not able to get away then the stove will remain shut down and the heat it produces will be poor. Speak to your Heating Engineer to see if installed as per the manufacturers instructions. The air wash control should be over to the right when first lighting and probably remain in the middle most of the time and if the wood is seasoned with a moisture content of less than 20% should remain clear.
I purchased this stove on the warm recommendation of the dealer, and it did at first seem to be satisfactory: large firebox, acceptable if basic appearance, good output, and easy to control (... [read more]
Stove expert replied: A difficult review as many customers are very satisfied with their TF90B's, it is a shame that legal action was required to rectify this.
Our TF90B was installed into our new build house Dec 2007. Having had an Aarrow stove (not boiler) previously I was confident it would be a sound investment. Sadly I was wrong. The stove has... [read more]
Stove expert replied: If you do not get repaired this should is not be used as a room heater in the future, a directive from the H & S Executive.
We chose this stove as it is the only domestic stove we found with a substantial boiler output. It is linked to our central heating, underfloor heating and hot water via a Dunsley Baker neutraliser... [read more]
Stove expert replied: This may be a large stove with a big appetite but to get the output it needs the large amount of fuel so not surprising!!
Overall the TF90 works successfully; ours has been heating a 500 litre thermal store for 3 months (running DHW, 8 upstairs rads and UFH downstairs). During that time (Jan/Feb/Mar 2012), although... [read more]
Stove expert replied: Large free-standing boiler with integral thermostat which works well. Big boiler for larger properties and very few options available.

Stove expert replied: Test the door / doors are sealing by shutting a piece of paper between the body of the stove and the door, if you can pull it out then the rope may need replacing and or the door adjusting to rectify this. Check the glass gaskets as they need replacing at times. The internal parts should be checked to insure they are not warped. If all of these do not produce a problem then check the flue system etc, you can always go back to the installer for further support.
We were advised to buy this stove to heat a house with 18 radiators, we only expected to get background heat for that, really never expected it to be the main heat source for the house. Good... [read more]
Stove expert replied: This is a large output stove and does not sound like it has been installed / used to its maximum potential. The fuel used will make a big difference. Would like to find out more!!
We originally bought an Aarrow 14 years ago. The first model only lasted about 6years but this one is still going. We find that keeping the fuel as dry as possible is a key consideration and... [read more]
Stove expert replied: If it works why change it? All spares are expensive in comparison to initial stove price!
