I was advised by my installer that the Charnwood 4 would be a good buy for my home office. I''ve had it three years, have had the installer and seller out numerous times. First they extended... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: What a shame that you are disappointed in your purchase. A short flue can be problematic but as this has been lengthened does not appear to be the case in this instance, unless it is mainly single skin and not insulated. Is there enough air in the space for combustion to occur? Is the fuel dry and well seasoned and with a moisture content of less than 20%?

Stove expert replied: Yes a stove can run too hot, this may be due to operator error or an over-drawing flue that prevents the stove from being able to slumber. The stove would run with a fast flame even when all controls are in the closed position, it will use a lot of fuel for little output of heat. This continuous high heat can buckle and distort the metal of the stove.

Within the first few months of use the back plate buckled badly. The stove was certainly not overrun, the plate is too thin - anyone with basic engineering knowledge will tell you that it is... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: First port of call with any warranty issue is with the supplier who your contract has been made with when purchasing the stove, they should act on your behalf with the manufacturer during the warranty period. It is a shame that you have not given Charnwood the opportunity to assist you with this as each case will be considered on their own merit.

Stove expert replied: Nice comments, wood of less than 4" diam is recommended on closed appliances to get the most efficient / effective burn.
The Charnwood 'C' range strikes the right balance between 'modern' and 'cottage' look, not too square and not too curvy. It took me a while to get used to the method of getting this stove going... [ read more ]
