  • smoke coming from top of stove

    Liz Mcdowell last month

    Bought this stove December 2016, nothing but trouble. Door handle kept falling off, had that replaced. Fire brick at the back of the stove has cracked and the icing on the cake now is smoke... []

    Stove expert replied: The liners are not covered by warranty but providing they are just cracked and staying in place to protect the metal of the stove they are safe to use. Regarding the smoke, as this has just started happening, do check that the flue way is clear by dropping the throat plate as debris may have fallen down the chimney and stopped the passage of gases. Have you an air brick in the room? It could be due to weather conditions not giving the lift away from the firebox on initial lighting, this is not clear from what has been posted. Does the smoke improve once the flue has become warm? Please make sure that you only use dry seasoned wood that has a moisture content of less than 20%. The key to any stove and its performance is the installation and in this instance the installer had not done what is expected, glad to hear all is well now.

  • Non controllable stoves

    Carol Lowey 2 months ago

    I have 2 Tiger multi fuel burners, both have no control and whistle through the wood and coal resulting in white hot heat, and burning out after a few hours. Both are only 2 years old. I can... []

    Stove expert replied: Are they the Defra Approved models or standard model where the air control can shut fully. If you are not able to shut a stove down then you should get a flue draw test taken to ensure that it meets the manufacturers desired draw, if it is too high then the stove will burn hard not producing much heat for the amount of fuel being used. This is not the fault of the stove but an installation issue.

    I've had my tiger gas stove for about 5years now. It worked perfectly fine for 3 years, and I was pleased with its output and good looks. However, the past 2 years have been a nightmare, it... []

    Stove expert replied: There are only a few parts that can cause problems and the thermocouple is the normal culprit.. Perhaps get in touch with the UK distributor if the Gas Safe Engineer is having problems disposing what part is faulty.

    Stove expert replied: Has the stove been serviced by a gas engineer? This is suggested every year and it may be that the igniter needs replacing.
