Review of Aarrow Acorn 5 stove

Acorn 5 ....strange smell

Neville Turkington 6 years ago

I purchased an Acorn 5 stove last June, the paint smell that is associated with the initial lighting of the stove is still present ....and is causing me to have some distress and irration to my respitory system ....can anyone please advise

Stove expert replied: The paint curing process on the stove takes a few firings so am doubtful that it is the stove causing the ongoing smell. I would suggest getting the flue system checked thoroughly.
