  • Amazing woodburner stove

    Soieb Mulla 6 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.

  • 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.

  • Excellent stove, but .. Update

    Reg Cormack one year ago

    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 one year 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

    Lesley Sleith 2 years ago

    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... []

  • Huge disappointment

    4 years ago

    This stove looks great but is almost impossible to control. The installer has extended the insulated flue twice - now 6m long in total. I have "discovered" that you can double the draft from... []

    Stove expert replied: The two controls and how they operate are explained on page 10 of the manual. As you have another stove in the property this may be affecting the flue draw on this flue system, did the installer do a flue draw test to establish that it meets at nominal effect there should be a negative pressure of 12 to 25 Pascal. Is there an sir brick in the room? Insufficient air supply can cause down-draught and thereby low combustion efficiency and the problems that this entails: soot stains on the glass, inefficient use of the wood and a soot deposits in the chimney. These are popular stoves and the problems you are experiencing are likely to be more to do with the installation than the stove itself.

  • disappointing

    Nina Coyne 4 years ago

    I have only had my stove for 6 weeks and am finding it very difficult to use. As soon as the thermometer gets to the recommend heat and adding the logs the temp drops and fire goes out. The only way I seem to be keeping the fire alight is by having the door open and that defeats the object. All the lovely flames advertised in the viewing window only last while the kindle is burning. I have watched the fire lighting video from nordpeis and still can't get it to work properly... []

    Stove expert replied: What length is the flue system, and what diameter? Is it a lined flue with insulation? Have you enough air in the room to allow for combustion? It sounds like an installation issue and the installer should be able to assist you further in the first instance to check that it meets with the manufacturers guidelines.
