  • Plastic smell

    Tom Evans this week

    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... []

    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.

  • Charnwood country 4 door handle stuck

    Tom Evans 3 weeks ago

    Hi all. Just brought a charnwood country 4 log burner. Heats up really well and very quickly but once it gets to about 450c the door does not open. Don't know if I'm being stupid and it doesn... []

    Stove expert replied: I would suggest that perhaps a flue thermostat should be purchased so that you can check the operating temperature of the stove, 450 degrees C is on the top limit of operating recommendations so it may be better to not work the stove quite so hard. It would appear that this temperature has meant that the metal has expanded thus preventing the handle mechanism from operating. You should take this up with the installer and supplier, firstly to check that the flue draw is not excessive (do you have full control of the rate of burn?) and should a warranty claim need to be initiated then your supplier can follow this up for you.

  • Great Little Stove - Dreadful Manual

    Peter Finlay 11 months ago

    Looks lovely. Great heat and control of heat level. There is one horrible problem - THE THROAT PLATE. The What? The heavy metal plate that forms the roof of the stove. The instruction manual... []

    Stove expert replied: If you did not get the tool that is talked about in the manual do go back to the supplier to request one. The throat plate seems to come down to sit above the back liner and there should be some retaining lugs on the side of the stove for it to locate onto and be held in its working place, when dropped down the debris should be able to be removed without taking it out of the firebox. If you need to remove totally then remove other internal parts that may restrict the opening ( fuel retainer etc) and bring the throat plate through in a diagonal position.

    Very quick and easy to light and burns well but my only issue is keeping it burning.We have an inset fire which once it gets going burns for hours with little attention required but I find this... []

    Stove expert replied: Smokeless fuel will provide a good core of heat that last much longer than wood and as this is a small stove you may not be able to put enough wood in to last the time that you are expecting it to. Worth trying the different fuel.
