  • Burley Brampton 9108

    Darren Abell last month

    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 11 months 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.

  • Not Impressed

    D McArthur one year 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.

  • update to previouse review

    I've had the Burley Brampton for one year, I've worked on many Burley stoves and they burn wood extremely efficiently, the fireball allows oxygen in all areas to get every last bit of heat from... []

    Stove expert replied: Over drawing flues can be controlled by a flue damper / stabilizer and should not affect the flue causing condensation, it helps to gain control of the stove when the flue draw is excessive.

    I, like many other customers, have milky deposits that cannot be removed. The fire has always shut down to slumber mode and I don't think that I have ever over-fuelled it. My previous log burner... []

    Stove expert replied: The stablilizer should come with fitting instructions and I would suggest that these are followed to prevent further damage. The manufacturer will have tested these to ensure that they correct the fault.

  • Burley Brampton Glass

    I have had my burley Brampton for about 2 years and it has cost me a lot of money in parts, I have needed to replace 3 glass panels because of milky front which would not clean off. The cost... []

    Stove expert replied: A stove can be overdrawn if the flue draw is in excess of the recommendation that is in the manual provided with every stove, it is not something that the customer will be in control of unless a damper or stabilizer is installed. Due to the continuous failure of internal parts this would seem to be the case in this instance and it is not a fault of the stove but down to the installation. Milky / cloudy glass is also indicative of an over drawn stove where it is subjected to higher than normal working temperatures for pro-longed periods, the flue draw should be checked urgently and remedial work undertaken.
