Review of Charnwood Country 12 stove

charnwood country 12 stove

Simon Fisher 7 years ago

Had this stove fitted two years ago. Always had problems getting a tight door seal at hot temperatures so can't get a slow burn. Just had a flue liner fitted because of chimney sweeping problems and now the draw is so fierce the stove burns even faster and most of the heat goes into the sky rather than the room. Charnwood say its out of guarantee but they've never come across the problem before !? I would love to hear if anyone else has had similar trouble. Would never buy one again especially if has twin doors...difficult to achieve a good seal.\n\n

Stove expert replied: If the draw on the chimney is too strong there are solutions so please contact a chimney expert for assistance.
