Had this stove fitted to a new bungalow chimney built to manufactures recommendation three years ago, this stove is the worst nightmare with smoke pouring into the room on reloading tried fitting rotating cowl without success, have now fitted eco boost flue fan at a cost of nearly a thousand pounds although a bit of improvement its far from ideal,t his stove I would not recommend.

Stove expert replied: I doubt it is the stove that is at fault but the installation that prevents the flue gases from lifting away from the firebox on opening of the door. Is there an air brick in the room? What height is the flue system and what is the construction.? Have you other flues in the property? Further investigation may improve this further as alternative remidies are normally possible once the cause if found.
