    Just purchased an AGA Ludlow which looks great. I only burn wood logs... I don't seem to get it burning with the primary control closed as suggested by the manual. I have a 5m stainless steel... []

    Stove expert replied: Using the primary, secondary and tertiary air controls exactly as per the manual may vary depending on the flue draw and fuel type being used, they are meant as a guide and therefore you may need to adjust them to suit your particular situation. Normally an over draught is required for wood burning and an under draught for smokeless fuels. I would start by setting the controls as suggested and then, if needed, gradually open the primary control until a gentle flame picture / controlled burning rate is achieved. As with most stoves it can take some time to find how they work best for your situation, and it can be a case of trial and error until this is achieved.

  • AGA Ludlow

    Steve McQue 7 years ago

    New to stoves and did a lot of research and waiting (6 months). It came down to the choice of an Aga Ludlow or a Clearview equivalent. Will not knock Clearview as they have plenty of happy customers... []

    Stove expert replied: Sound and honest feedback of this happy customer. Good to know that Aga is still maintaining their long established good quality.

  • Very practical easy to clean HE stove.

    MIKE ATKINSON one year ago

    I install stoves for a living and chose the Ludlow after working with many others on the market. Many stoves are needlessly whistles and bells, creating more to go wrong. My Ludlow is 2 years old and still is in great condition, used regularly by me. It only has a masonry chimney which draws more than adequately. Buy one to find out more........ []

    Had this Stove professionally fitted in February. I wish I'd bought it years ago. Very easy to clean out - I clean the glass with a damp cloth and a little of the fine ash from the pan. The... []

    Stove expert replied: Red discolouration inside a stove is normally indicative that the metal has become too hot, do check the ovoid fuel you are using to ensure that it is suitable for a closed appliance and is not petroleum based. Watch the rate of burn so that it is not too vigorous.

  • Good, but a design flaw

    2 years ago

    However, there is a design flaw. the top baffle rests on very small shelves, meaning that the slightest touch when loading wood into the stove will make it fall down into the fire. you then... []

    Stove expert replied: The baffle plate is designed to direct the flue gases back into the firebox for a cleaner burn. It also ensures that the heat is kept in the firebox so that it can radiate more effectively into the room, should you remove this then more heat will go up the flue system leaving less for the room. It will also subject the stove top to higher than normal working temperatures.

    Stove expert replied: Lining a flue will enable the flue gases to stay warm and provides the most efficient environment for a stove to operate effectively.

    After our friends purchased stoves we decided to make the leap and get one as well. We didn't know anything about stoves or brands so went for a name we knew AGA also we wanted a mid priced stove We choose the LUDLOW SE since we live in a smoke controlled area. We also we sold by the one year parts and FIVE year guarantee on the cast We've used the stove since May this year and are generally very pleased with it. The build quality is exceptionally well made Its easy to removed the baffles to properly clean the stove The area on top is ideal for the kettle or casserole pot The Firebox is large fits Good sized logs The air wash works very well with the correct fuel Well seasoned logs and the fire gives out good heat throughout the house and stays warm overnight even though the fire has gone out The only negatives I've found are Being a defra stove you cannot close off all the air supply at the top IF the stove starts burning too hot it's impossible to close off and dull Down which seems dangerous??! All you can do is fully open the door and hope it cools Down (I'd prefer the top air inlet to close fully) When you open the door be careful not to cut or scratch you arm on the other side of the handle its sharp. The spinning valve is one notch which isn't as good as the aga little wenlocks spinning valve centre piece to control Apart from this we love the stove... []
