  • Waste of money

    Adam Naser 4 months ago

    I bought this stove last winter after going through some good reviews.My issues: back brick cracked, baffle / mesh filter disintegrated, flames inside the stove always go to the top left corner... []

    Stove expert replied: Disappointing review. Manufacturers do not cover consumable items in their warranty and liners can easily crack for several reasons but providing they stay in place and protect the metal of the stove can be used. Was a flue draw test undertaken to ascertain that this is correct for this stove? Have you a stove thermometer which indicates the correct operating temperature? Were the air controls on the stove responsive? Burley has supplied paint you say to cover fading paintwork, and once the paint is cured may be required to keep the stove looking in pristine condition. Operating and routine maintenance are also of great importance to the longevity of any stove and flue system.

  • Burley Brampton 9108

    Darren Abell one year ago

    It does not polish out. This was only a couple inches diameter and now we clean the glass before EVERY use. The other day my wife did get it too hot and now its fogged up nearly half the screen... []

    Stove expert replied: The review gives a great deal of information which is informative. The flue draw appears to be an issue with regard to finding lighting a problem and smoke coming back into the room, this may be a case for the need of an airbrick in the room or the flue length not being adequate to get a good draw. Were both of these checked prior to installation? Some flues require a fan to assist in these circumstances. High temperature Silicone Spray for metal parts are available and should not require daily usage and may be worth investing in. Glass can be affected by long periods of slumbering, where the gases stay in the firebox too long and this will become evident with a spiders web effect, that creeps over the glass, short periods of fast burn (15 - 20 min max) should be undertaken during burning periods to prevent this. Likewise if you over fire the stove a cloudy appearance is evident that will not clean off as the glass surface has been damaged. The integrity remains though so there is no need to change the glass it just means you are not able to enjoy the full flame picture unobstructed.

  • Not a great stove in the long run

    Andrew Ellis 2 years ago

    Our initial few months of the stove where great. It chucked out a lot of heat. However in the long term there are issues. The glass is cloudy (etched). I burn wood that has been under cover... []

    Stove expert replied: The problems experienced sounds as if the stove has been over-drawn and the cloudy glass is indicative of this, the last sentence would also lead me to say the problems with parts failing prematurely are also signs that the stove is getting too hot for prolonged periods: "Can be hard to to control on windy days as even fully shut down it wants to draw." A stove is designed to work at an optimum temperature (I would suggest a stove thermostat is invested in) but if exposed to higher temperatures for prolonged periods then failure of parts is inevitable.

    D McArthur 3 years ago

    We are singularly unimpressed with this stove. It is only 2 years old and the insulation panels have cracked,the top metal plate has buckled and the mesh burnt away. The stove has never been... []

    Stove expert replied: Internal parts are classed as consumable but it is a shame that these have not lasted very well. The liners do crack sometimes but providing they stay in place, to protect the stove metal, they can continue to be used. The baffle plate buckling does raise concerns that the stove may be working harder than it should be and this needs to be carefully monitored.
