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.

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 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... [ read more ]
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.
Phenomenal value for money, of all we considered this was the lowest cost but extremely pleased with the stove. It''s a wood burner only, but does this very efficiently - the manufacturer claims... [ read more ]

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 .

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.
We have been using this stove for two years now, with a full height twin wall flue. We could not be happier with our choice. It really kicks out the heat, you get some funny looks when putting... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Do have your chimney swept at least one per season to insure that the airways remain clear, even burning dry seasoned fuel will leave deposits and these need to be cleaned regularly to prevent a build up in the flue system.
