but no change when closed right down, hence have used all my logs in 2 days.Airflow making a rather alarming humming / roaring noise, so I suspect a lot of heat disappearing up the chimney.
Stove expert replied: Perhaps you should get a damper on the flue so that you can control the rate of burn. Speak to your installer as if the stove is working hard all the time you may be over-firing it and this can lead to damage to the unit.

in front of the stove without feeling hot! I've got my installer coming back for a second time but they so far haven't been able to find an issue. The installer initially recommend a lower kw stove to us but we went for the larger C6 as we have ventilation in the room. I previously installed a 5Kw Chesney stove in a similar size room at my old house which was amazing. I'd think twice about buying a Charnwood C6, I am considering changing for a Clearview.
Stove expert replied: Do have a flue draw test taken as it is likely to be the cause of the problem if the stove is eating fuel without producing much heat and with little control, the flue draw is critical to know. If it exceeds the manufacturers guidance then a damper or stabilizer can be added to gain better control. This is not the fault then of the stove but down to the installation.
have. Also I agree the slow burn setting still lets a fair bit of air in, I very much doubt you could get this to burn over night on wood. I'm sure a clear view might be more efficient but they don't look half as nice in my opinion. Over all I'm really happy with it, it looks great, is easy to light and heats up our entire ground floor with ease. Also a good thing is that you can use all the controls without a glove. 10 year guarantee with Charnwood that gives some piece of mind, its nice to use a UK made stove also. I'd advise shopping around for prices, got mine for around £790 in the RRP is around £996.
EVERYTHING unbelievably quickly. My installer has returned twice to check the installation and draw. Within 4 hours, a full load of coal has turned to ash. My parents, who have a Stockton 6, can run the stove for 18 hours on a full load of coal. I contacted the manufacturer asking for help in controlling the stove, in shutting down the air supply. They told me that as the stove had been approved for smokeless zones, it had a tertiary air supply that could not be shut down, and consequently would burn faster. The room heats up far too quickly, and then either you let the fire go out or you refuel, meaning it gets FAR too hot. I'm on the verge of looking for something like the Stockton Brunel 2CB that looks a lot more controllable. Overall, the stove looks great, no complaints about anything other than ... I can't get it to burn for more than 4 hours on coal before needing a refill. Logs last maybe 40-55 minutes depending on size. I want to love this stove - it looks great.....
old and I feel it should not happen, the metal on the back plate does not seem to be heavy enough.
Stove expert replied: Metal internal components may fail from overfiring of the stove which should be checked out in more depth to insure future failures are prevented. Consumable items will require replacement from time to time depending on their usage.
