Review of Clarke Barrel

What a mistake

Kathy Plumbly 2 years ago

Bought this stove as it was the only one I could find that fitted the space. Very disappointed. Had the stove fitted, it smelt awful at first, needs a load of wood to get it going not overused and in just over a year ALL the seams split!. Glass window far too small. Very disappointed.

Stove expert replied: As this is just over a year old I would suggest going back to the supplier as it would have come with a 12 month warranty. They are inexpensive stoves but if it has been used correctly should give you more than 1 years worth of use. The seams failing may imply that the stove has been over fired.
