Pioneer 400

I had just bought this stove and it is rubbish, the heat is pants, the price is to much, it cant burn over night, the fire box is tiny but for the stove size its size is good, the handle gets very hot, the grate system gets jammed, I went onto the roof to see how sturdy the metal chimney cowl was and noticed there were extreme heat coming out, and I wasn't having a chimney fire as it has only been in for 1 week. May be the stove is lacking efficiency.\n\n

Stove expert replied: Oh dear, one unhappy customer. Get the installation checked to insure it complies with the manufacturers requirements as this stove should give a good performance!
