Review of Charnwood SLX45 stove

why dont i have an airwash fitted

Alwyn Ross

I think this stove is very good, lovely and warm, easy to manage had it fitted about 4 years ago and since then have wished it had an airwash. I thought that was just the way they were until now. It seems to me that both the charnwood slx models have an airwash they have just put a rubber bung where it should be on my stove. Now I'm thinking can I fit an air wash to it because if I could I think it would be pretty much perfect or do I have to by another stove. I would defenetly recommend fitting one of these but only if it has the airwash if it doesn't don't fit it or you will be constently cleaning it.

Stove expert replied: The SLX models do have an airwash control on the top right hand side as you look at it, you pull the control out to operate. See manual page 4 for where the control is and perhaps reading through again will refresh how to get the best from the stove.
