    We have had this for about 3 or 4 years now which replace our old charnwood stove. The problem with this fire seems to be the design of the throat plate and the air vent. The air enters the... []

    Stove expert replied: The air available for combustion is paramount for any stove and manufacturers design stoves to work efficiently with the various controls that are on the stove, if you are getting back draught when opening the doors then the flue draw would appear to be insufficient for this stove. It may have been fine for the previous model but with the more efficient models now on the market, further air supply into the room may be required. There may also have been modifications to the property increasing insulation etc that will affect a stoves performance which need to be considered.

    The Charnwood stove SLX 45 is fitted in our kitchen 3 months now and still there's very little heat coming into the room. There's warm water 20 minutes after lighting the stove but I still need... []

    Stove expert replied: Is there an air brick in the room? Do you leave the air controls open? Is the wood being burnt dry and seasoned with a moisture content of less than 20%? What is the flue draw measurement? Further investigation required to alleviate aspects that will directly affect the rate of burn.

    loving the look of my new LA but its not producing hot water, have even tried burning without radiators on all night but that didn't work. can someone tell me if im doing something wrong or... []

    Stove expert replied: Ask the installer to come back and check the system to insure it matches the instructions from the manufacturer. Does the flow pipe get hot when the stove is on compared to the return pipe? What fuel are you using?

    Purchased this stove last month. Good heat when up and going. The only problem I have is when refilling the fire, when I open the doors the smoke comes out, is there anything i can do to prevent... []

    Stove expert replied: Check that you have an air vent in the room, possibly an anti downdraught cowl may be required. Ask the installer back to check the installation complies to the manufacturers specifications, height of flue, if a liner installed and ventilation requirements.

  • Huge improvment on open fire but with some issues!

    Paul Shelly 9 years ago

    Fitted correctly with a steel flue we have this for a year now replacing an open fire without boiler. We integrated our existing oil system with this unit for a dual system and it works very... []

    Stove expert replied: Honest feedback from customer, is there another chimney in the house? Flues can be problematic but usually these can be overcome - may be worth speaking to a Chimney Expert if the problem persists!!

    Stove expert replied: Leave air wash open and insure fuel dry and seasoned which should help to keep glass clean.

  • 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... []

    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.
