  • Enamel peeling off

    7 months ago

    The stove was present when I moved into the house in 2008, I think it was newly installed. It has not had too much use, I would reckon at the maximum 20 times per year if that. I note today... []

    Stove expert replied: Enamel is normally a robust finish so for it to be coming off seems rather strange but the stove is now at least 8years old. Have you had any building work in the property (rendering / plastering) both of these have high water content which could affect a stove and its condition. There will be touch up paint that can be purchased to cover the places that are affected.

  • Will I have to buy a completely new stove?

    Rebecca Hanson 2 years ago

    My Intrepid II is about 10 years old. It's gas. The switch (part no 0580869) has gone. Does anyone know how to get one or will I have to chuck out the entire stove?

    Stove expert replied: There are many spares companies that should be able to help you online, hopefully you can get a replacement.

  • Flue Access Problem

    Colin Keane 3 years ago

    Old installation that my sweep says needs a flue access hatch to allow him to sweep it out. Dont know how to go about this

    Stove expert replied: Get an installer in to disconnect stove and add a flue with access point in it. The sweep may know of someone who should be Hetas Approved.

  • We must have been unlucky

    We installed an Intrepid II in December 2006 and going by all the reviews we had read expected to have a good number of years trouble free. However, we have had to replace several throat plates... []

    Stove expert replied: It may not be all to do with the stove, could your flue draw be excessive causing premature failure of these components?
