Stove expert replied: If you had a problem of controlling the stove early on the installer should have been asked to attend to check the flue draw, it appears this was not requested which is unfortunate. The metal splitting should have been taken up with the manufacturer under the 5 year warranty that is provided by the manufacturer as soon as this had happened. It will not be valid if the stove has been over fired though. The problem could be that the flue draw is in excess of that which is recommended by the manufacturer. The installer can do a flue draw test and if this is too great, compared to what is recommended, then a flue damper or stabilizer can be added to the system so that the stove can be controlled. If when the air controls are shut the stove is burning fiercely and does not go back to slumbering, then this is likely to be the reason and you can't blame the stove for failing prematurely, it is being exposed to higher than normal temperatures for prolonged periods. I agree this is a costly experience and if you do change the stove, do make sure that you have control of the rate of burn, as similar can happen again if this is not corrected regardless of which manufacturer you purchase from.
