as it actually provides enough heat to go through the whole house. So easy to regulate the temperature and only needs cleaning out once a week. I am so happy with this, much cleaner, more efficient and beautiful to look at. Would highly recommend.

Stove expert replied: Replacement rope is expensive but important to the working of a stove, think of it as a genuine spare for a car. It is not only the diameter of the rope but the density as well and this is a trade secret to each manufacturer.

Stove expert replied: 2 similar stoves out of 8 in one property, must be really happy with all aspects of this brand. Top marks given by reviewer.
quite good but there was always something just to knock them off the top spot.Things like Dirty glass when burning slowly, Smell of smoke in the room when opening the door to rearrange a log. Well I am glad to say that none of these apply to the Clearview vision. Its slightly more expensive than most stoves but I have tried a few and it just can't be beat. Easy to light,you can have it roaring or burning to a lazy flame or even slumbering (although not recommended). It's glass keeps clean even at slow burning, gives out good heat. All the parts for the stove are readily available and means the stove will last for years. Don't take my word for it, how many other stoves are rated at 4.5 stars with well over 100 reviews.
all cases I think there are genuine reasons for them either user error or poor installation. A stove needs to be well looked after and treated with care using only the best fuels. I again only used seasoned wood. I also use paper bricks which I make and pine cones and kindling as starter fuel. I monitor the temp all the time and clean the glass every week even though it does not really need it. I service the stove myself by removing all the bricks and baffle plate so inspecting the box in readiness for the sweeper. The first year it was swepted the sweeper asked if I had used it! I said yes , and he said well what ever you are doing keep on doing it and I do. I need't to sweep it for two years. So two years on I have just had the steel liner swept, dura flue, and once again, very little came out and what did was bone dry, no black residue from ineffective burning. It pays to read up on how to manage your stove well before installing one as I guess some people report problems because they didn't correctly research how to use them and burn the right fuels at the right temperature. Three years on the glass is like new, the box inside is clear no rust, only a light oxidation coating from being used but otherwise solid, no rust or other issues. Fire bricks are good no cracks but then they are easy to replace. The hinges are lubricated every year on the door by me with copper grease spray and the glass removed and cleaned. The fire rope seals are still white and intact. The stove is a smoke controlled one so I had to purchase the extra bit to stop me slumbering the stove , defra approved. I thought this would be a problem in burning too quickly, complete rubbish, you can still turn the rolling flames right down whilst still getting complete combustion once stove is at a high enough temperature. Most errors are because the user is not getting the stove in the sweet zone before they turn it down, when burning timber in a stove you should be burning the gasses being released from the wood and not the wood itself, this only happens when the stove is working as it should, burning all the volatile gases preventing build up of any creosote in the liner I am only an amateur but had read up on using stoves and combustion before buying one and can honestly say if you buy a clearview why would you not want to learn how to use it well since you are paying good money. You would not buy a Mercedes and drive it off road. I'm currently on holiday in Scotland and have a Jotul F250 in the home it's a good stove, cast iron, but has its failings mostly around ash pan size, single glass and no riddling grate , other than that a nice stove belting out the heat if you use it right. But I'll stick with clearview thank you.
Stove expert replied: Great informative comments, and never a truer word written! If you know how to use a stove correctly you can get wonderful results. Certainly worth finding out about how to operate a stove prior to purchasing one.
a damaged fire brick inside the stove I noticed that the back of the stove had rusted and large pieces of rusted steel were flaking off inside the stove, I contacted clearview and told them of the situation, they told me that I had lost the guarantee on the stove because I had burnt smokeless fuel and the excessive rust was due to the tar the smokeless coal gives off, if I had known that the stove was made of low grade metal that corrodes so easily I would not have spent the extra money on this stove and bought a cheaper one.They don't make it clear to their customers that even though the stove is advertised as multi fuel they play on our ignorance as most people like me would buy coal that is recommended for multi fuel stoves not knowing the risk of damaging the stove.
Stove expert replied: The manual that is provided with the stove should set out clearly the warranty / guarantee terms and conditions and also what fuel can be used on the appliance. Having looked at a manual it states: " Many manufactured solid fuels now contain oil products, these can be very corrosive, burning such fuels in your Clearview stove will void your warranty, the life of metal flues will be much reduced and glass may become opaque". It is very important for every customer to read the manual to check what is allowed as this varies with different stoves and can be a costly error should they not be followed and a problem occurs.
