Review of Charnwood Country 4 stove
Hi Stove Expert. Thanks for your help with the last issue/ question I had.It''s a new stove Charnwood country 4 and when I crank the heat up the house completely smells of plastic. Is this normal and does it go away over time. Also have a little baby so not putting the stove on at the moment due to the smell etc. Is there something I can do so I can have stove on hot and not smell Have to keep the heat to about 100c so it does not smell. Thanks for your help Tom
Stove expert replied: If the stove / flue smells of plastic when hot there may be something that is closer to the heat source than it should be as there should not be a noticeable smell from a working stove. I would suggest getting your installer back to check the installation as this is not normal. The stove is basically a steel box with refractory liners inside so there is nothing to cause a smell once the paint has cured.
