Review of Aarrow Ecoburn 7 stove

Cleanliness

Pat Graham 4 years ago

I have 5 stoves -all of them Arrow/Stratford in various sizes. I had a Coalbrookdale Much Wenlock for 30 years so I have lots of experience with stoves. These stoves are efficient and in general I am happy. BUT the Arrow Ecoburn 7 Stove in my sitting room an Living room create a lot of ash on the surrounding floor due to design of metal plate on front of grate. It is a sloping design and the wood ash gets trapped between this plate and the glass and also in the door. So on opening the door this ash falls on the surrounding fireplace and black tiles. I am forever sweeping it and as it is so fine it's all over the place. This is an absolute nuisance and is a major fault in the design I feel. Also the glass area on front of this plate is forever black. The air vent does not clean it. So PLEASE AARROW design another metal stand up plate so that I can insert one in both stoves and keep my living area relatively clean. I have no problem with the Eco Boiler 16 and the two little Aarrow 5's. No ash fall. Thank you
