  • Chimney Sweeping Brush Access

    Peter Vine 3 weeks ago

    The Nordpeis Bergen has a removable internal Smoke Baffle Top Plate to access the flue when the outlet mounted to the Top of the Stove. The Stove is fitted with a cast iron Draft Diverter before... []

    Stove expert replied: Flue access is always recommended to be allowed above the stove even if there is access from within so an alternative point is available. A flue pipe with an access door should have been fitted at the time of installation.

  • No one told me you need a really strong draught

    Sara Peacey 8 years ago

    It is a lovely stove but only suitable for very good chimneys. The literature does not make this clear. I have lined my chimney but it still doesn't work, the fire goes out if the door is... []

    Stove expert replied: I am sure that there will be a way to make this stove work better! Contact a chimney specialist for further assistance as it is shame if you are disappointed. Otherwise contact manufacturer for help as to how to overcome this problem.

  • Stove brick broken 4x and Stovax UK rep would not honour warranty

    Victoria Lewis 3 weeks ago

    First let me say how much I loved this stove and how very easy I found it to light, run and clean. Seriously love everything about it including design and ease of use. However, the front middle... []

    Stove expert replied: A stoves warranty does come with certain terms and conditions as with all makes and models. The liners / bricks are not covered by manufacturers as they are classed as consumable. They appear to have replaced the brick when their engineer called which I am assuming was free of charge. When they crack, have you tried fire cement to keep the parts together, this may then mean that a replacement is not required and the efficiency is not affected - worth trying as this seems an ongoing issue with this stove.

  • Amazing woodburner stove

    Soieb Mulla 8 months ago

    The way I burn is build up a kindle /softwood bed and burn until it reaches a min temp of 250f-300f but don't close the door completely let air rush in as it's a big burner will need more air... []

    Stove expert replied: Please be careful when buying cheap wood - it is recommended that you get a moisture meter to insure that you only use wood that is dry and seasoned with a moisture content of less than 20% this will help to maintain a clear flue providing you keep the air controls partially open, have short periods of fast burn during each usage and have the chimney swept regularly.

  • Excellent stove, but .. Update

    I''m afraid that any stove lighting problems, as earlier stated, were of my own making. I''ve now realised that I simply had not let the fire run long enough to heat the flue properly before... []

  • Excellent stove .. but ..

    Reg Cormack one year ago

    But decided it was time to give it a full clean out. I removed all the ceramic(?) plates to check the chimney and clean all parts. Having replaced everything following this and tried a couple... []

    Stove expert replied: Please get the chimney swept, which is something that should be at least annually undertaken. If this does not resolve the problem then I am not sure what else to suggest except making sure that the internal components are installed correctly as per the manufacturers instructions. It does seem strange as this appears to be the only thing that has altered. You should be able to tell if parts move on the airwash when you operate it and a releasing graphiite spray may help if it has got stock having not been used for a while.

  • Fantastic stove

    MICK BELLMOONEY 2 years ago

    This stove has proven a dream for use in a 40m2 living room which it can heat and keep warm without issue. We have a 6" liner and the draw is excellent in a 10m chimney - there is no need for... []

    Stove expert replied: The optimum operating temperature registered on a flue thermostat is between 230 - 460 F (110 - 250C) so you are running this stove far too hot for the hour long period, this can potentially lead to distortion of the body so can't be recommended and should be avoided. Short periods of fast burn (no longer than 20mins) when a fire is established should be adequate to clean off any residues that are produced during slumbering periods.

  • Bergen Baffle plate issue

    I love my woodburner which was installed Sept 17.My only issue with it is twice now the baffle plate has fallen down. We place the logs in gently, just wondered if any other Bergen owners... []

    Stove expert replied: It would appear that there is only one position for the baffle to be located if you refer to the manual, and I am unaware of other customers that have had this issue.

  • Serious issues lighting this fire!!

    Stuart Henderson 2 years ago

    Ever since I had this installed in February we have had nothing but problems lighting the fire. Numerous occasions my living room has been filled with smoke, and I mean a lot of smoke. We''ve... []

    Stove expert replied: The manufacturer is making contact with the customer to try to resolve the problem being experienced. If the flue draw is too low (this can be tested by the installer) then a flue fan may be required and this is then an installation problem and not the stove that is at fault. The flue used is rear on this installation and ideally it should top, the gases are collecting in the 45 degree elbows and preventing them from getting away quickly hence the problem. Either change to 90 degree T or top flue recommended, customer to follow up with installer.

    This stove is a dream. Easy to light even without kindling using hardwood logs and will burn steadily and strongly for about 45 minutes for every half log at around 350F to 400F. Tremendous... []

    Stove expert replied: The fuel is one key element to ensure the stove performs to the best it can. Nice review.
