  • Poor starting

    I''ve had this wood burner for 5 years and every year when I first try and get it going major problems chimney swept kiln dry wood does this steel baffle contribute to this I''m on my third... []

    Stove expert replied: When the stove is first lit after a break, the draw and cold flue may contribute to ignition problems. It is unlikely that the baffle is affecting this unless it has become distorted and then it can affect the overall performance of a stove. The baffle can become distorted if the flue has a strong draw, the controls are set incorrectly, the seals are not effective or the incorrect fuel is being used (or a combination of more than one of these). A stove pipe thermometer will ensure that you are operating the stove within the correct parameters and is inexpensive for this peace of mind.

    This is the first wood burning stove I have had after reading months of reviews. All my friends have wood burning stoves. None are as efficient as this one or give such a dazzling display. Had... []

    Stove expert replied: Burning driftwood is not recommended due to dioxins being created in the flue gases when wood is burned in the presence of chlorides. Dioxin is termed as a persistent, bioaccumulating toxin meaning it doesn't decompose, it builds up in tissues of organisms that ingest it. It is recommended that this is no longer used as a fuel in your stove.

  • Hollywell 9105 functioning and purchasing spare parts

    Jim Mclaughlan 2 years ago

    Hollywell 9105 is the one to avoid, poor heating, eats kiln dried wood with about 80% of the heat going up the flue. Spare parts a complete rip off. You would be better burning your money than... []

    Stove expert replied: If the heat is going up the flue then a damper may be required as the flue draw is excessive, this should be checked to prevent damage to the stove, an installation issue and not a problem with the stove.

    This stove is not all its cracked up to be in the 6 or so months I''ve had it I have had nothing but problems. I have replaced the glass twice the stainless baffle twice and now the piece of... []

    Stove expert replied: A very disappointing review and concerning that the deposits being left in the flue are so great that they are forming lumps. This does require further investigation from a qualified engineer who can look at the overall installation and operating procedure more thoroughly.. Parts should not be failing so readily .

  • The glass will go cloudy

    Martin Lewis 3 years ago

    I have had the Burley Hollywell for two and a half years now, on the whole it has been pretty good. The seal around the glass on the door is failing now, so I am going to replace it this week... []

    Stove expert replied: Cloudy glass is normally indicative of an over drawn stove but as you have a thermometer and the operating temperatures are kept around the 150 degrees this does not appear to be the case. Pellets on a stove are unusual unless specifically designed for this type of fuel and they are usually too small for a grate system to function correctly.
