Review of Clearview Solution 500 stove

Very unhappy with our purchase

David Botfield 4 years ago

My wife and I purchased two of these models back in 2006. One for the kitchen (a flat top model) and one for the lounge (a canopy model). They have been the worst purchases we have ever made and we bitterly regret our involvement with 'Clearview'. We have always had a 'fume' problem from day one, the stove seems not too bad on initial lighting, but it's when they have reached temperature and you shut it down the problems start. Clearview replaced the one stove in the lounge as the fitter said the door did not fit correctly, but problems still persisted and still do to this day. My advice would be to buy from another manufacturer with a good track record!
