Review of Broseley Hercules 30b boiler stove

problem with glass

Tracey Lawlor 4 years ago

I have a hercules 30 kw stove having a major problem trying to keep glass in the doors they keep cracking and breaking from the heat and now because the glass has been replaced so many times the hinges that hold the glass have become lose and won't hold the glass so it is now not sealed properly because of this the hinges and screws holding the hinges are badly rusted they can't be removed any suggestions on what to do

Stove expert replied: You could look at a replacement door, it may be worth the expense but would solve the issues you have been experiencing.
